Windies tour of Bangladesh, 2018 | Bangladesh vs Windies, 1st ODI | BAN vs WI Who Will Win
The Big Picture
After the 2-match Test series, the caravan of the Windies tour of Bangladesh moves to the white-ball format with the hosts aiming to continue with the winning momentum when they take on the beleaguered tourists in the first ODI on Sunday.
Windies find themselves in the same position where hosts Bangladesh were when they toured the Caribbean back in July. Back then, Bangladesh came into the ODI desperately seeking a revival after the trio of Roach, Holder and Gabriel had walloped them with disdain to hand a chastening 0-2 drubbing in the Test series.
It is a similar kind of situation for the Windies. After being trumped by Bangladesh’s spinners which resulted in their first-ever Test series defeat to the hosts in Asia, the Rovman Powell-led side is in a desperate need of revival. But, the similarity ends here.
While Bangladesh went on to revive themselves by winning the ODI series back then, the Windies have to play out of their skins to beat the hosts, who have emerged to be a very tough side to beat in the limited-overs format at home- their eight of the 11 ODI wins have come at home this year.
The return of Darren Bravo, Roston Chase and Carlos Brathwaite will, however, give some boost to their line-up which is already missing regular skipper Jason Holder.
Windies have that fire-power in their batting with Shimron Hetmeyar and Shai Hope leading the pack but it is their bowling that will be heavily tested against a strong Bangladeshi line-up which has been boosted by the return of ace batsmen Tamim Iqbal and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
