About the Match

The battle between West Indies and Bangladesh continues to swing like a pendulum as the home team bounced back to win the first T20I after losing the ODI series 2-1. Bangladesh will be hoping to register a win at Florida on 5th August to stay in the series. Bangladesh could expect things to turn a little home-like with an excellent batting surface and ample support available here. With everything to play for kind of a situation, this match is set up beautifully and we expect it to be a thrilling game of Cricket.

Match Preview

West Indies

Resting Chris Gayle didn't impact much on the mindset of West Indies' batsmen as they came out all guns blazing to chase a competitive total on that surface. Andre Russell continued to build on his IPL form as he smashed quick-fire 35 to guide his side to victory with seven wickets in hand.

Windies bowlers bowled exceptionally tor restrict Bangladesh for 143 before the downpour started. Kesrick Williams picked up four important wickets which didn't allow Bangladesh to gather momentum at any stage whatsoever.

West Indies didn't have best of the starts as they were reduced to 10 for 2 in the second over, chasing 91 in 11. Andre Fletcher and Ewin Lewis were dismissed by Mustafizur Rahman in the second over of their innings. A brilliant partnership between Samuels and Russell bailed them out before Samuels perished for an enterprising 26 off just 13 deliveries. Russell continued with his aggressive approach before Rovman Powell sealed the deal with a clean strike in the 10th over.

West Indies Starting Lineup

ADS Fletcher , Evin Lewis, Andre Russell, MN Samuels, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Samuel Badree, Keemo Paul, KOK Williams.

Bangladesh

Bangladesh's dependence on their seniors was well and truly highlighted when they were reduced to 43 for 4 in the sixth over of the match, thanks to an exceptional spell from Williams.

While Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahumudulla tried to rebuild their innings thereafter, the lack of support from other batsmen dismissed any attempt to increase the run-rate. Mahmudullah played a good knock of 35 runs of 27 deliveries, but that could only take Bangladesh to 143.

Expectedly, Anamul Haque was replaced with Soumya Sarkar, but the latter could not do anything different as he perished in the very first over, off Ashley Nurse. Tamim Iqbal jumped out off his crease irresponsibly and was stumped off the first ball. Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das brief partnership helped Bangladesh come out of the hole, but they too were back in the hut in the space of 28 deliveries and 38 runs leaving them tottering at 43 for 4.

Bangladesh Starting Lineup

Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Ariful Haque, Nazmul Islam, Abu Hider, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman.

Toss Prediction

Chasing is the preferred decision in the T20s after winning the toss, especially when the pitch isn't expected to change a lot. The surface at Lauderhill is likely to stay true throughout the match and winning the toss and fielding first will be the way to go.

Pitch and Conditions

When India played against West Indies a couple of years ago, the total of 245 was almost chased down here. However, the behavior of the surface during the Caribbean Premier League was a lot different as it was difficult to score as freely here. It's expected to be a better surface than what we saw in CPL, but might not be as good as what it was in India - West Indies match. With small boundaries and a true surface, chasing will be the choice of the captain winning the toss. The team batting first should look to score at least 180 to stay competitive in the match.

Our Prediction

The surface at Lauderhill, Florida is expected to be a little home-like for Bangladesh and that coupled with the good expat support could work in the visitors' favor. However, given the way they played in the first match, the chances of their comeback are bleak. Furthermore, West Indies' batting lineup is full of match-winners and considering the last match's performance, West Indies are firm favorites to win the second match of the series as well.
