Bangladesh Tour of West Indies 2022
Bangladesh had a rather disappointing start to the 2022 West Indies tour, losing both Test and T20 format series. Their overall team performance in both formats was utterly disappointing, with the exception of a few standout individual performances. However, Bangladesh did make a strong comeback in the ODI format and whitewashed the Caribbean side. Let's take a look at the seven best Bangladeshi performers in the WI vs BAN Series 2022. Bangladesh team's best 7 performers in the WI vs BAN Series 2022 Bangladesh’s batting performance throughout the Caribbean tour was disappointing. In contrast, the bowling unit had a spectacular outing during the tour. Here are the top seven Bangladeshi performers in the WI vs BAN Series 2022. Shakib Al Hasan M: 5 | Runs: 240 | HS: 68* | Wickets: 3 | BBI: 1/10 All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan took part in the Test and T20I series but skipped the ODI series. Despite the fact that Bangladesh lost both Tests and T20Is, Shakib was one of the best players in these two formats. He was the third highest scorer in the Test series with 138 runs. Shakib struck two fifties in the first Test. In the T20 format, Shakib was the second-top scorer with 102 runs and also picked up a couple of wickets. Read Bangladesh clinch a clean sweep against West Indies in ODIs Tamim Iqbal M: 5 | Runs: 218 | HS: 50* Tamim had a quiet tour with the bat in the West Indies. He only had one half-century in seven innings. However, Tamim Iqbal’s performance as a captain in the ODI format was eye-catching. His leadership qualities and on-field decision-making were brilliant. That is why Tamim Iqbal’s captaincy was one of the major positive points for the Bangladesh campaign. Khaled Ahmed M: 2 | Wickets: 10 | BBI: 5/106 Khaled Ahmed's selection was not appreciated by some Bangladeshi cricket experts. However, Khaled showed in the Test series that he is possibly Bangladesh's best fast bowler in the longer-version format in overseas conditions. Khaled finished the Test series with 10 wickets, including a five-wicket haul in the first innings of the second match. Read Tamim announces T20I retirement Taijul Islam M: 1 | Wickets: 5 | BBI: 5/28 Taijul Islam had to wait till the last fixture to finally play a match on the West Indies tour. The left-handed orthodox spinner seized the opportunity by picking up five wickets in the third ODI and helped Bangladesh whitewash the Windies in the limited-over series. It was Taijul Islam’s best bowling figure (5/28) in ODI cricket. Mehidy Hasan Miraz M: 5 | Runs: 33 | HS: 16* | Wickets: 14 | BBI: 4/29 Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz is considered a utility player for the Bangladesh national side. He is a very effective bowler in the Test and ODI formats and can bat a bit in the lower middle-order. Miraz didn’t make any impact with the bat, but he had a successful tour with the ball. Miraz didn’t play in the T20I series but picked up 14 wickets in the Test and ODI formats. Read: BAN vs WI Series 2022: How Bangladesh’s players fared in first Test Nasum Ahmed M: 5 | Wickets: 7 | BBI: 3/19 Nasum Ahmed made his ODI debut in the WI vs BAN Series 2022 and made an immediate impact for his side. Tamim Iqbal utilized him at the beginning of the innings, and Nasum’s spin caused a lot of problems for the Caribbean batters in the ODI series. The left-arm orthodox spinner picked up 7 wickets on the West Indies tour. Nurul Hasan Sohan M: 8 | Runs: 217 | HS: 64 Nurul Hasan Sohan once again proved that he is the best wicket-keeper batter in Bangladesh at the moment. Nurul had a good time with the gloves on the West Indies tour, picking up 10 catches and making 2 stumpings. Nurul’s highlight innings on the tour was when he made a 100-run partnership with captain Shakib Al Hasan in the second innings of the first Test. Besides, he was among the top run scorers for Bangladesh on the tour.

Bangladesh players have a lot to take from this tour, which will be useful for better performance in the next series. Bangladesh team management should take note of these issues and take steps to improve the performance of the players. However, Bangladesh departed the West Indies with confidence after winning the ODI format in 2022. Otherwise, it would have been a disappointing tour for Bangladesh.

Bangladesh sealed their sixth bilateral ODI series against the West Indies with a 9-wicket victory in the second match of the WI vs BAN ODI Series 2022. The Tigers are now eying to complete their third whitewash against the Caribbean side when both teams meet each other in the third ODI on Saturday (July 16). Besides, finishing the Caribbean tour on a high note would be a major priority for the Bangladesh campaign. The conditions will suit the Bangladesh players as the Providence Stadium assists the spinners to thrive. The third ODI match preview is discussed in this article. West Indies vs Bangladesh ODI Series 2022: 3rd Match Preview The bowling unit did the job for Bangladesh in the first two matches. More precisely, the spinners have been outstanding and exploited the Providence ground surfaces very well. Oppositely, the West Indian batting unit has found no clue in dealing with Bangladesh spinners. Therefore, the battle between Caribbean batters and Bangladesh spinners will determine the final outcome of the contest. The third match of the WI vs BAN ODI Series 2022 will be played at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on July 16 and will start at 7.30 p.m. (Bangladesh Standard Time). Bangladesh Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal wants to give other players in the squad a chance in the third ODI. Therefore, two or three changes may occur in Bangladesh's playing XI for Saturday’s contest. Bangladesh are unlikely to rest any spinners for the match, as they are the team's main weapons in this WI vs BAN ODI Series 2022. Therefore, Taskin, Ebadot, and Anamul may be included in place of Mustafizur, Shoriful, and Shanto. Read Sabbir, Soumya added to Bangladesh A team for WI tour Bangladesh had chased down low totals in the first two matches, so the batters haven’t gotten enough chances to bat in this series. Tamim Iqbal may opt to bat first in the final match of the series in order to allow the batters to bat deep in the match. Probable playing XI Top-Order: Tamim Iqbal (captain), Anamul Haque, Litton Das, Middle-Order: Mahmudullah Riyad, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan Sohan (wicket-keeper), Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Lower-Order: Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Nasum Ahmed West Indies The Caribbean team has struggled to perform in the ODI format in recent years. They have lost 10 straight ODI matches against Bangladesh. The venue of the WI vs BAN ODI series 2022, the Providence ground, is known for its slowest nature of wicket and the West Indian batters are not well adept at playing the spinners. Therefore, West Indian batters have found it difficult to deal with Bangladesh spinners in this ongoing ODI series. Read Bangladesh's Shohidul gets 10-month ban for failing dope test In the third ODI, the batting unit needs to show that they are capable of playing spin bowling. The team management needs to chalk out a better strategy to outperform the Bangladesh side during the contest. Besides, the players have to respond to the match as per the plan. Probable Playing XI Top-Order: Shai Hope (wicket-keeper), Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks, Middle-Order: Keacy Carty, Nicholas Pooran (captain), Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Keemo Paul, Lower-Order: Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie Guyana’s Pitch Report and Weather There is a possibility of rain with thunderstorms on Saturday (July 16) in Georgetown, Guyana. The sky is likely to remain partly cloudy as well. Since the chasing team won the first two matches, the toss-winning captain may opt to bat second on this surface in the third ODI. Read BAN vs WI 2022: Tamim equals Mashrafe’s record with ODI series win over Windies Verdict The third match of the WI vs BAN ODI Series 2022 would be a dead-rubber contest since Bangladesh have already sealed the series. However, Bangladesh wouldn’t let a chance to whitewash the West Indian side in the series pass them by. Therefore, they will be all-in for the contest. On the other hand, the West Indies team will play to restore some pride. They will play to win the match and finish the series 2-1.
The Tamim Iqbal-led Bangladesh national men’s cricket team sealed the 3-match ODI series against West Indies after winning the second match by 9 wickets on Wednesday (July 14) at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Besides, captain Tamim Iqbal has also equaled Mashrafe Mortaza's record by winning the series. Now, Bangladesh's aim in the BAN vs WI 2022 ODI series is to whitewash the Caribbean side. The third match will be held on July 16 (Saturday) at the same venue. West Indies vs Bangladesh Second ODI 2022: Match Report Bangladesh chased down West Indies’ 108 runs in 20.4 overs, with captain Tamim Iqbal scoring the highest of 50* for his side. Bangladesh only lost Najmul Hossain Shanto’s (20) wicket, who opened the innings with Tamim in this encounter. Litton Das came out to bat at no.3 and remained unbeaten with 32*, securing Bangladesh’s 9-wicket victory in the match. The Bangladesh skipper, Tamim Iqbal didn't think twice to bat first after winning the toss since it was anticipated that spinners would flourish on the Providence stadium pitch. Furthermore, it was taken into account that the Windies batters were inept against the Bangladesh spinners in the first game. Taskin Ahmed was even dropped by Bangladesh team management so that there would be room for another spinner in the playing XI. Read Bangladesh bowl first in 2nd ODI vs West Indies Mosaddek Hossain replaced Taskin Ahmed in the playing XI. Tamim fully utilized the right-hand spinner by handing him the new ball to bowl the first over. Mosaddek completed his 10 overs within the first 25 overs and even gave Bangladesh the first breakthrough in the 11th over. On the other hand, left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed put immense pressure on the West Indian batting line-up and eventually finished his spell with 10-4-19-3. Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the most successful bowler, picking up 4 wickets for 29 runs. Bangladesh’s spinners did all the damage in the West Indies innings as Mosaddek, Nasum, and Mehidy combined to bowl 28 overs out of 35. Shoriful bowled 3 overs and picked up a wicket, while Mustafizur bowled 4 overs. Keemo Paul was the top scorer for the West Indies with 25. Tamim Iqbal Equals Mashrafe Mortaza's Record Veteran opener Tamim Iqbal has been doing a brilliant job since becoming ODI captain of Bangladesh. Under his leadership, Bangladesh have won five straight ODI series. Prior to him, the Mashrafe-led Bangladesh ODI team had won five straight ODI series from 2015 to 2016. Therefore, Tamim Iqbal has equaled the record of Mashrafe Mortaza by winning five straight ODI series as a captain.

Bangladesh bowlers have dominated the Caribbean side and it will continue as the Providence Stadium in Guyana will host the third ODI as well. Besides, Tamim can improve his win/loss ratio as captain even further if he guides Bangladesh to whitewash the Caribbean team in the ongoing limited-overs series. Read Bangladesh go 2-0 up to win ODI series against West Indies
The Bangladesh national men’s cricket team’s ODI record at the Providence Stadium in Guyana is better than the other national teams. They have a chance to improve the record even further as the remaining matches of the WI vs BAN ODI Series 2022 will take place at this venue. Surprisingly, West Indies have the lowest winning percentage among teams that have played at least one match at this venue. Bangladesh’s records at the Providence Stadium as well as their favourable ODI venues are discussed in this article. Bangladesh’s ODI record at the Providence Stadium in Guyana Bangladesh have played a total of four matches at Guyana’s Providence Stadium. They have only lost one ODI and won three at this ground. Bangladesh have played three matches against the West Indies and one against South Africa. Their only defeat at this venue has come against the West Indies in a 2018 bilateral series match.

Besides, Bangladesh’s rating points in the ICC ODI rankings will also improve if they win all of the matches in the series. Therefore, Bangladesh have a lot to play for in this limited-overs contest against the West Indies.
The Bangladesh national men’s cricket team finally registered their first victory in their 2022 Caribbean tour after beating the hosts by 6 wickets in the first ODI match. This was Bangladesh’s nine straight victories over the West Indies. If Bangladesh win the remaining two matches in the series, they will equal West Indies' record of eleven straight victories between the two sides. The visiting side's top priority at the moment is to win the WI vs BAN 2nd ODI 2022 in order to clinch the series with a game in hand. The second ODI preview of WI vs BAN 2022 series is discussed in this article. West Indies vs Bangladesh Series 2022: Second ODI Match Preview The Bangladesh bowlers were brilliant in the first ODI. Their efforts practically helped Bangladesh clinch the series-opening contest. In contrast, the Caribbean team couldn’t carry on their recent good run of form in the first match of the limited-overs series. In other words, the batting unit was clueless against Bangladesh bowlers. The WI vs BAN 2nd ODI 2022 will be crucial for both teams, which will be played at the same venue. The match will start at 7.30 p.m. (Bangladesh Standard Time) on Wednesday (July 13) at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Bangladesh Bangladesh's campaign is full of confidence at the moment after sealing the first match. The bowlers' expectations will be high again in the second ODI, but putting in the same effort in all matches is not possible. So, the batters have to come forward and display their best effort in the middle. Read Mahmudullah hopes spinners shine in 3rd T20I Bangladesh need a big partnership from the top order and someone has to play an anchor role in order to set up a big total on board. Captain Tamim usually guides the Bangladesh innings, but now the time has come for Litton Das to step up and play the role for the side. Afif Hossain needs to play a solid knock if he gets a proper chance to build his innings. Veteran Mahmudullah Riyad has been criticized for not performing to his full potential with the bat. Riyad also needs to show his true prowess as a pinch hitter, especially in the death overs. In bowling, Shoriful Islam and Mehidy Hasan Miraz had brilliant outings in the first match. However, no one can deny the fact that Nasum Ahmed and Taskin Ahmed were very economical in their respective spells. One major concern for Bangladesh could be their fielding. They dropped multiple catches in the first match, which they need to improve as soon as possible. There is no chance of making a change in the playing XI for the second match. Predicted playing XI (Bangladesh) Top-Order: Tamim Iqbal (captain), Litton Das, Anamul Haque Middle-Order: Mahmudullah Riyad, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan Sohan (wicket-keeper), Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz Lower-Order: Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman Read Shakib to skip West Indies ODIs, Zimbabwe tour West Indies The West Indies campaign was probably expecting another ruthless performance against Bangladesh in the ODI format. However, the match result didn't turn out as anticipated for them. Batters' approach towards spinners was shambolic. The batters were nervous facing the Bangladesh spinners and the pacers also managed to put pressure on them as well. West Indian batters need to come up with a proper plan to deal with Bangladeshi spinners. Besides, they need to find a way to rotate the strike rate to set up a challenging total. Bowlers comparatively did well for the home side, picking up four wickets while defending a low total. Mahmudullah Riyad survived twice in the first match. The outcome of the first ODI would have been different had Riyad been out earlier in his innings. The West Indies may opt for a couple of changes in order to bolster their playing XI. However, the West Indian batters have to play a big part if they want to level the series at 1-1 by winning the second match. Read BCB plans to cut salary gap between male, female cricketers Predicted Playing XI (West Indies) Top-Order: Shai Hope (wicket-keeper), Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks Middle-Order: Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (captain), Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph Lower-Order: Romario Shepherd, Gudakesh Motie, Jayden Seales Guyana’s Weather and Pitch Report The forecast suggests that there is a strong possibility of rain with thunderstorms on Wednesday (July 13) in Georgetown, Guyana. Therefore, a deduction of overs is a strong possibility for the second match. The pitch would be batting-friendly, so opting to bat first could be a suitable option for the toss-winning captain. Verdict Many experts believed Bangladesh's chances in the ODI series would be quite slim after a dismal showing in both the Test and T20I series. However, Bangladesh once again showed why they are among the world's toughest ODI sides. The Tamim Iqbal-led team completely outplayed the Windies in the opening game and won by a comfortable margin to grab the series lead. Read West Indies beat Bangladesh to sweep T20 series Additionally, the players of the visiting team will have little trouble adjusting to the conditions because every game in the ODI series will take place at Providence Stadium in Guyana. On the other hand, the Windies team has to devise a better strategy for the second ODI because Bangladesh will begin as the favourite in the WI vs BAN 2nd ODI 2022. Bangladesh will attempt to win the limited-overs series in the second game in order to make the third ODI a dead rubber.
The BAN vs WI 3rd T20I 2022 will take place at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Thursday (July 7). The match is set to begin at 11.30 p.m. (Bangladesh Standard Time). The West Indies are 1-0 up in the series with a 35-run victory in the second match at Windsor Park in Dominica, and the first match was called off due to inclement weather conditions. Therefore, the final T20I will be a do-or-die contest for Bangladesh in order to finish the series 1-1. The third match preview is discussed in this article. 2022 West Indies vs Bangladesh T20I Series: Third Match Preview Bangladesh have never played a T20I match at the Providence stadium. West Indies, on the other hand, have only won two of their six matches at this venue. So, it’s not a favourite ground for the Caribbean team.

They lost 10 and one game had no result. This clearly indicates that the Bangladesh Twenty20 team hasn’t been in the best shape at the moment. They have shortcomings in certain areas which need to be fixed as early as possible before the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia. Bangladesh team management needs to find out the major issues through the remaining series before the upcoming World Cup. The approach of the batters to the shortest format, the inability of power-hitting and the lack of effectiveness in the death over bowling are some of the issues that have been revealed in the ongoing series. Bangladesh need to find a solution to these issues before the third match of the series. Otherwise, they will face consequences like in the second T20I. There might be a few adjustments made for the series' final game. However, changes won’t make any big difference if the players fail to thrive in the actual contest. Predicted Playing XI Top-Order: Litton Das, Anamul Haque, Shakib Al Hasan; Middle-Order: Mahmudullah (Captain), Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (Wicket-Keeper), Mosaddek Hossain, Mahedi Hasan; Lower-Order: Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman. Read Root and Bairstow rocket England to record Test win West Indies The West Indies had a tough T20 World Cup 2021, and a number of big stars announced their retirements post the mega event. The current West Indian team is relatively inexperienced and is led by wicket-keeper batter Nicholas Pooran. Nicholas has shown good captaincy so far in the series. He has rotated his spinners and faster bowlers pretty well, which has proved effective during the contest. Rovman Powell was outstanding with the bat in the second match. It seems Powell’s new role is to accelerate the run rates in the death overs. Furthermore, the West Indies have found solid opening partners in Mayers and Brandon. The team has built well under the leadership of Nicholas Pooran. The Windies will be eager to prove their progression by winning the BAN vs WI 3rd T20I 2022 as well as the series.

Aftermath Bangladesh’s performance in the ongoing Caribbean tour has been very disappointing. After a clueless showing by the batters in the Test format, there was an expectation that the batters would come out with a lot of intent in the shortest format of the game. However, it seems Bangladesh’s batting unit doesn’t have any idea of what to do in the middle, be it at the beginning of the innings or in the death overs. The bowling was subpar in the second match, conceding too many runs in the death overs. Bangladesh need to find a quick solution to all of their major shortcomings in order to level the series. Will they be able to stop a rejuvenated West Indies side? The way the Caribbean team has been performing over the last two months, it will be a real challenge for the visitors to overcome the hosts in the BAN vs WI 3rd T20I 2022.

Bangladesh’s tour of the West Indies will end with a 3-match WI vs BAN ODI Series 2022. There is no denying the fact that the ODI is Bangladesh’s favourite format. The expectations will be high from the Tiger’s campaign to seal the One-Day International series. The West Indian side is in good form at the moment, and that’s why the Tamim Iqbal-led team needs to find a way to come out on top against the Caribbean side.

Therefore, Bangladesh players will likely do much better in the limited-overs series, despite the fact that they haven't been able to play to their full potential in the other two formats against the West Indian team on this trip. On the other side, West Indies will be aiming to maintain their recent success in the WI vs BAN ODI Series 2022.

Bangladesh vs West Indies 2nd T20I: Match Report On Sunday, Windsor Park hosted its first international match since the stadium was renovated following hurricane Maria damage in 2017. Before that, only two T20I matches were held at this venue and both were low-scoring affairs. Therefore, predicting how the pitch would behave during the contest was difficult. However, the curator was determined to build a fresh wicket which would assist the batters to score runs. The effort to make a batting-friendly wicket was successful as more than 350 runs were scored during the contest.

They were practically down and out in the run chase when 3 wickets were down at 23 in 3 overs. Shakib and Afif then tried to repair the innings with a 55-run stand between them on the fourth wicket. Afif Hossain played a 34-run knock before losing his wicket to Romario Shepherd. But by then Bangladesh already played 10.2 overs and they required 116 runs in 58 balls with 6 wickets in hand. It was a testing time for the power hitters of Bangladesh to see whether they were capable enough to pull off such a target by maintaining a 200 strike rate. Expectedly, all the hitters failed big time in the contest, and Bangladesh finished their innings on 158/6. Among the power hitters, Nurul Hasan contributed 7 off 13, Mosaddek Hossain made 15 off 11 and Mahedi Hasan remained unbeaten with 5* off 2. Shakib Al Hasan remained with 68* off 52 balls and became the second Bangladeshi batter after Mahmudullah Riyad to score 2,000 T20I runs.

The first match of the BAN vs WI 2022 Twenty20 series will be held on Saturday (July 2) at the Windsor Park ground. The match will start at 11.30 p.m. (Bangladesh Standard Time). Bangladesh have to regroup themselves after a demoralizing display in the Test series against the Windies. There will be some changes in the Bangladesh T20 setup as veteran Mahmudullah Riyad will lead the side. On the other hand, Nicholas Pooran will lead the West Indies side. The Caribbean side has also made some changes to their T20 squad. The first T20I match preview is discussed in this article. West Indies vs Bangladesh Series 2022: First T20I Match Preview The series is very important for both the teams in order to identify the best possible squads for the upcoming 2022 ICC Twenty20 World Cup. Bangladesh have never played at Windsor Park, the venue of the first match. Oppositely, West Indies have played two matches and won one at this ground.

Bangladesh’s T20 record against the Windies in West Indies Matches Bangladesh Won West Indies Won No Result 3 0 2 1 Source: https://www.espncricinfo.com/ Read Mehidy, Taskin added to Bangladesh T20I squad Bangladesh Bangladesh’s major concern at the moment is their batting. The team management is searching for an answer to a few questions regarding batting, such as: will the batters continue to struggle in the T20 format? Will they find a viable opening pair for the T20? Who will play the anchor role in the absence of Tamim Iqbal? And what’s the solution to power-hitting in the middle-order? In other words, the batters have to step up and show more responsibility in their approach. Munim Shahriar and Anamul Haque are likely to open the innings as Mohammad Naim has been out of form for quite some time. For Anamul Haque, it will be another opportunity for him to cement his place in the Bangladesh squad. He should seize the chance by showing his true potential during the 3-match series. Besides, Litton, Shakib, and Mahmudullah will have to play a big role in the middle overs. In bowling, Mustafizur’s cutter will cause problems for the Caribbean batters. Taskin and Shoriful have been brilliant for Bangladesh since 2021. Besides, left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed could give a breakthrough at the start of the innings. Bangladesh’s bowling department seems more equipped than batting. As a result, they may have to undertake a little more responsibility in the game.

Read Shakib uncertain for West Indies ODIs The West Indies Cricket Board is looking to build a new squad for their Twenty20 side. In the current setup, Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Nicholas Pooran, and Rovman Powell will be key in the batting line-ups. In bowling, Romario Shepherd and Alzarri Joseph will likely lead the pace bowling unit. They also have Akeal Hosein and Hayden Walsh, both very good spinners. Probable Playing XI (West Indies) Top-Order: Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks, Kyle Mayers; Middle-Order: Nicholas Pooran (wicket-keeper & captain), Rovman Powell, Odean Smith, Romario Shepherd, Keemo Paul; Lower-Order: Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Hayden Walsh. Weather Forecast and Pitch Report The first match will be held on Saturday, and unfortunately, there is a strong chance of rain on that particular day in Dominica. There have only been two games played here thus far. According to the Windsor Park ground statistics, pace bowlers who have the ability to swing can thrive in the power play. It has been a low-scoring venue so far, but this statistic could change in the future.

Besides, the players have to execute the plan on the field. In this case, some players have to play with a little more responsibility. The five Bangladeshi cricketers who could be important in the series against the West Indies are discussed in this article. Mahmudullah Riyad T20Is: 115 | Runs: 2,002 | HS: 64* | Ave: 23.83 | 50s: 6 | Wickets: 37 | BBI: 3/10 | Ave: 26.94 | Econ: 7.19 Captain Mahmudullah will be a crucial part of Bangladesh’s middle order. He must accept responsibility for hastening the death rate. Riyad can also be an effective breakthrough bowler when needed. Besides, all eyes will be on his captaincy, especially how he will lead the Bangladesh team. Since January 2021, Riyad has been Bangladesh's second-highest run-scorer in T20Is. Read Bangladesh’s T20I Fixtures Before the ICC Twenty20 World Cup 2022 Shakib Al Hasan T20Is: 96 | Runs: 1,908 | HS: 84 | Ave: 22.44 | 50s: 9 | Wickets: 119 | BBI: 5/20 | Ave: 19.88 | Econ: 6.67 | 5W: 1 There is no doubt that ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be a vital player for Bangladesh in the upcoming BAN vs WI T20I Series 2022. Among the Bangladeshi players, Shakib has picked up the most wickets with 19 against West Indies in the T20 format. So, this stat will encourage him to perform even better in the series. Litton Das T20Is: 48 | Runs: 917 | HS: 61 | Ave: 19.93 | 50s: 5 Even though Litton’s performance in the recent Twenty20 Internationals hasn’t been so impressive, his experience will come in handy for Bangladesh during the series. In the absence of Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal, Litton will have to play the anchor role for the team. Read BAN vs WI Test Series 2022: How Bangladesh’s players performed against the Windies Mustafizur Rahman T20Is: 63 | Wickets: 87 | BBI: 5/22 | Ave: 19.65 | Econ: 7.57 | 5W: 1 Left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman’s cutter delivery will be a major weapon to put West Indian batters under strain in the series. Mustafizur alone can take the game away from the West Indies team if he finds his best rhythm during the series. The recent record is also in Mustafizur’s favor as he has picked up the highest 29 wickets for Bangladesh since 2021. Nasum Ahmed T20Is: 20 | Wickets: 26 | BBI: 4/10 | Ave: 16.00 | Econ: 6.44 Left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed has been a revolution for Bangladesh in the T20 format since making his debut against New Zealand in March 2021. Nasum’s ability to read the batter's mind and intelligent bowling has been impressive. Captain Mahmudullah usually deploys Nasum at the start of the innings to put extra pressure on the batters. This crafty spinner has so far been a big success for Bangladesh in the game's shortest format. Read Bangladesh Suffer its 100 Test Defeats Bottom Line The West Indies’ recent Twenty20 form hasn’t been impressive. Some new players have been incorporated into the Caribbean T20 squad. The hosts are therefore now a less experienced team than they were before. Bangladesh should seize the opportunity and strive to come up with a plan of strategy that would allow them to outperform the Windies side in the BAN vs. WI T20I Series 2022. Bangladesh have the real potential to win the series if their players play to the best of their abilities.
