Windies will have a showdown with Bangladesh in a full-fledged series starting from 22nd November 2018.
Without the skipper Jason Holder who is off for a physiotherapy treatment, Windies will have to play this against Bangladesh without their ace player. Kraigg will lead the side from his absence. WIndies who had just returned from a humiliating loss to India has previously dismantled Bangladesh by 2-0. There are loopholes in the team which has to be filled before the face-off.
Apart from Windies, Bangladesh did face a humiliating loss in the first match of Zimbabwe test but then punched back in the second match to level the series at 1-1. Shakib Al Hasan will be making a comeback after not attending the Zimbabwe test. Soumya Sarkar and Nayeem Hassan are also included in the 13-man squad for Bangladesh.
Mushfiqur Rahman (Wk); Mahmudullah Riyad, Mominul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Mithun, Soumya Sarkar (Batsmen); Shakib Al Hassan, Mehidy Hasan, Ariful Haque (All-rounders); Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Naeem Hasan, Khaled Ahmed (Bowlers).
Shane Dowrich (WK); Kraigg Brathwaite, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Kieran Powell (Batsmen); Roston Chase, Raymon Reifer (All-rounders); Kemar Roach, Shanon Gabriel, Jomel Warrican, Devendra Bishoo (Bowlers).
My PlayerzPot XI:
Bangladesh has a strong line of bowlers that may halt Windies strike rate but they won’t stop until its done. Definitely, a tough match is around the corner but Bangladesh has a strong chance to win this one.
