BAN vs WI T20I 2022
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. Predicted Playing XI Top-Order: Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Shamarh Brooks; Middle-Order: Nicholas Pooran (Captain & Wicket-Keeper), Rovman Powell, Odean Smith, Romario Shepherd, Romario Shepherd; Lower-Order: Obed McCoy, Akeal Hosein, Hayden Walsh Jr. Read WI vs BAN Series 2022: 7 attainable personal milestones for Bangladeshi cricketers Pitch and Weather Forecast There is a strong chance of rain on Thursday in Georgetown, Guyana. Therefore, the match could be interrupted due to inclement weather conditions. Batting first would be an ideal choice for the toss-winning captain at this ground. 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.

How the Bangladesh team fared in the second match and Shakib Al Hasan’s new milestone are discussed in this article. 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.

Bangladesh’s performance in the Test format against West Indies was demoralizing, losing the series by a 2-0 margin. The Tigers T20I team needs to find a way to stop the Windies' aggression as well as to dominate them. Bangladesh’s target should be to clinch the BAN vs WI T20I Series 2022. Losing the series would be regarded as a failure for the Mahmudullah-led Bangladesh side. Let’s take a look at the five players from Bangladesh who could be vital in the Bangladesh versus West Indist T20I contest. 5 Key Bangladeshi players in T20 series against West Indies Bangladesh must follow the proper strategy in order to win the BAN vs WI T20I Series 2022. 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.
