West Indies vs Bangladesh 2nd T20 Ballebaazi Fantasy Cricket Preview

West Indies

West Indies had to shuffle the batting order to chase the revised target when rain interrupted the first T20 match. Opening batsmen, Andre Fletcher and Evin Lewis left the crease in no time. Andre Russell and Marlon Samuels pulled out all the stops and helped the Windies reach the target. The WI bowling was terrific; Kesrick Willimas took the Bangladesh batsmen to task. Nonetheless, Samuel Badree was very expensive and even failed to pick wicket; he needs to bounce back with his form. The West Indies squad is likely to come out unaltered after the first win.

Bangladesh

Bangladesh, who batted first, was threatened by the Windies as they lost the back-to-back wickets of their opening batsmen. The middle order gave the team a head start and batted halfway through with full confidence. The lower order then faltered against the WI bowlers; after 95/5 in the first half, Bangladesh scored only 143/9 in 20 overs. Barring Rubel Hossain and Mustafizur Rahman, the Bangladesh bowling unit was ineffectual. The squad could possible see some changes to level the series in the next game.
