West Indies vs Bangladesh Team Previews
During the ODI leg of the series, the West Indian batting has been a complete disaster. It has struggled to find the right momentum while also dealing with the spin available to Bangladeshi bowlers. It’s not that the team has suddenly become bad, but the batters just don’t seem to have the temperament to play the kind of innings that are required.
On paper, the batting lineup appears to have the depth to score runs, but the issue has been consistency. The Providence surface will not change, and on such a slow, spin-friendly surface, we believe betting against West Indian batters is the best strategy.
If you must place a wager, Nicholas Pooran or Rovman Powell appear to be viable options in the Top Batter West Indies betting market.
Among the West Indian bowlers, Akeal Hosein is the bowler we would bet on to pick the most wickets because he has the skills to exploit the conditions.

With two consecutive victories, the visitors have managed to turn things around in this one-day series. The onus will be on batsmen like Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, and Najmul Hossain Shanto to deliver the majority of the runs.
Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh’s captain, was the standout performer with the bat in the previous match. He played well, finishing the innings with a top-score of 50 not out off 62 balls and seven boundaries. Liton Das, who scored 32 not out off 27 balls with six fours, aided him greatly.
Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed, and Mehidy Hasan will be expected to provide crucial breakthroughs in the bowling department.
Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan was the standout performer for Bangladesh in the second game, taking 4 for 29 in eight overs. Aside from Mehidy, left-arm orthodox Nasum Ahmed bowled well, finishing with figures of 3 for 19 in ten overs.
