Bangladesh have had a terrific tour prior to the first T20I and they were longing to start with a win in the T20s as well. Instead their sentiments were badly hurt when the visitors humiliated them with a massive 8-wicket win in the first T20I of the series. Despite the loss, the hosts will be confident to lay a win over the visitors to level the series 1-1 when the two teams meet to play the second match of the series on 20th December at Shere Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Dhaka.
The decision to bat first after winning the toss backfired for the hosts as they could score only at a little more than a run an over. None batsman other than skipper Shakib Al Hasan looked comfortable against the Caribbean bowling attack. Bangladesh failed to set a target which would have concerned Windies as they faded out to put just 129 runs on the board.
Shakib Al Hasan was the only man who offered some resistance for Bangladesh as he scored 61 runs off just 43 deliveries. The contribution from the remaining batsmen looked like a telephone string as Ariful Haque and Mahmudullah Riyad were the only batsmen to reach double figures. Haque scored 17 whereas Mahmudullah scored 12.
The failure of their top-order was the primary reason for their downfall as all among Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, and Soumya Sarkar struggled to even stay at the crease, let alone scoring runs. Although there wasn't much bowlers could have done with such low total on the board, Mahmudullah and Mohammad Saifuddin bowled well. They both returned with the figures of 13 for 1. Going into the next game, Bangladesh will have to be careful and stepup their game - with both bat and ball so as to challenge Windies who looked in extremely good rhythm in the first match of the series.

The Caribbean team immediately showcased their love for the shortest format of the game as the change of format not only changed their fortunes, but they looked to be an altogether different team. West Indies have done better if we compare the two teams head to head and they will be looking to keep the momentum going.
Ever since the tour has started, there's one man who has carried West Indies' ship singlehandedly - Shai Hope. It wasn't any different in the T20s as well after their bowlers wrecked the hosts to keep them to a chase-able total. Shai Hope played an enterprising knock of 55 runs off 23 deliveries which knocked the home team out of the contention. Rarely does it happen that Evin Lewis plays second fiddle to anyone and it was one such rare occasion.
Earlier with the ball, Sheldon Cotrell inflicted most of the damage as he picked 4/28 to completely derail the hosts' innings. Keemo Paul and Carlos Braithwaite played brilliant role to assist Cotrell which ignited the hopes of the visitors and kept Bangladesh at bay. West Indies will need something on the similar terms if they want to challenge the Tigers, who will be eager to bounce back in the second match.

West Indies completely annihilated Bangladesh and it was all one-way traffic throughout the match. First Cotrell played his part and then Shai Hope cleaned up all the little hopes which the hosts would have had after a poor batting show. It will be interesting to see how Bangladesh devices a plan to bounce back after a heart-wrenching loss. They have a strong team and have done better than West Indies in recent encounter which places them marginally ahead of the visitors to win the second match and level the series.
