After a poor display in the test series against West Indies, Bangladesh have a big challenge ahead of themselves. They'll be back to the format they prefer over the longest version with One Day International series scheduled to begin on 22nd July 2018. The first match will be played at Providence Stadium, Georgetown. Unlike the Test series, where there was a lot of assistance for the new-ball bowlers, there will be some respite for the batsmen. West Indies, too, are known to get better as the format of the game gets shorter. It is a format that Bangladesh fancies playing and on a surface which will be a bit more home-like for them, expect an even contest between the two sides.
Jason Holder's all-around performance expedited the things for the home team as they cruised to a 2-0 victory in the test series. Bangladesh required to chase 335 runs in the fourth innings and thanks to Holder's 6 for 59, the visitors lost by a hefty margin of 166 runs.
Batting first in the second test, Kraigg Brathwaite exhibited another prolific innings where he scored 110 runs. Hetmeyer was the second-best scorer for them with a quick-fire knock of 86. They scored 354 runs in the first innings which proved to be too much for Bangladesh batsmen. They restricted Bangladesh to a total of just 149 and had the option of imposing follow-on which they, of course, didn't. Jason Holder was a star performer with the ball as he picked up five wickets for 44 in just ten overs.
Unlike the first innings, the second innings was a sorry story for West Indies where they failed against the might of Bangladeshi spinners. However, it didn't hurt them in anyway whatsoever, largely due to the first innings lead they had over the visitors. Jason Holder was once again the star bowler for them as he claimed six important scalps including that of Shakib al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal which stalled Bangladesh's chase then and there.
West Indies have historically been better in the shorter formats as compared to the longer one and given the way they played in the test matches, Bangladesh will have to bring out their A-Game to beat West Indies at home.

Bangladesh needed something miraculous to bounce back into the series, especially after the way they faltered in the opening test. It was the same old story for them in the second test albeit a little less intensive.
Considering the way they had batted in the series that far, chasing the total of 335 was more like climbing Mt. Everest for their batsmen. They needed to put up their best batting performance in recent times. Instead, they lost Tamim Iqbal for a duck and series of wickets falling and new batsman coming in didn't stop. Their most senior statesmen, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim tried to steady the ship and stitched a face-saving partnership of 54 runs, it was too little too late.
Unlike the first test, Bangladesh had a few positives to draw from this match. The way their spinners bowled in the second innings was commendable. They restricted the home team to just 129 which allowed them to stay in the hunt for leveling the series which eventually didn't happen.
Bangladesh haven't done particularly well in this series and a lot will be playing on the minds of their players. They are a professional team which has bounced back before, and the first ODI might just be the match where we see that happen again.
Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman.
Generally, the pitches in West Indies tend to get slower as the match progresses. Therefore, expect the team winning the toss to bat first.
It's going to be a cool day at Providence with 90% chances of rain. The surface is expected to slow down with the passage of time making the strokeplay tougher with the older balls. A total in the range of 240-250 will be a par score on this wicket.
There was a huge mismatch in the Test series, thanks to an ordinary display of Cricket by the visitors' batsmen. Their batsmen got out playing useless and low-percentage shots. The conditions at Providence will resemble that of Dhaka and the visitors are expected to put up an improved performance. However, considering the way the Caribbean team played in the two tests, beating them on their home soil appears to long ask for Bangladesh. We expect West Indies to win the opening match and go 1-0 up in the series.
