After a splendid ODI series which Bangladesh won 2-1, Windies are now set to hosts 3-match T20I series against them. Windies are known as one of the best T20 sides of the world. They have won 2 T20 World Cup titles so far. The hosts, after their defeat in the ODI series, would like to comeback in style with a victory over Bangladesh this time. Windies lost couple of games in the ODI series which they could have easily won. This pressure might be seen in the T20 series as well. If bat first, the hosts have to score a mammoth total to erase any kind of doubts over the opposition’s success. With Chris Gayle rested, Andre Fletcher and Evin Lewis are expected to open. Bangladesh have included 4 new players in their side. The new comers would be desperate to perform against a quality T20 side. The sluggish wicket at Warner Park will offer Bangladesh a chance in the opening game that they may not be afforded when the series moves to Lauderhill in Florida for the final two matches.
Best economical pick – Rovman Powell's unbeaten 41-ball 74 in the third ODI came after a contrasting but decisive 44 in the previous game. In the T20Is, however, it will be his big-hitting ability, which will be required in the slog overs. The Windies have shown great faith in the potential of Rovman Powell.
Top captains & vice captains – Tamim Iqbal is playing like a champion these days and his brilliant form would be a great sign for Bangladesh in the upcoming T20I series. Tamim Iqbal was the Player of the Series in the ODIs, notching scores of 130*, 54 and 103 to steer Bangladesh towards a series victory. If the southpaw can strike couple of good scores in the shortest format of the game, Bangladesh can recreate the magic of ODI series here as well. Mahmudullah will be Bangladesh's go-to batsman when it comes to slogging in the death overs. He possesses the unique ability of being able to hit cleanly from the outset in pressure situations.
Smart pick – Andre Russell missed the last ODI against Bangladesh because of an injury, but is back, and in his favorite format. Russell ticks many boxes for the Windies with his batting, bowling and fielding, but it's with the bat that he is the game-swinger. Carlos Brathwaite will hope he comes well, and if he does, Bangladesh better beware.
Cautious Pick – Sabbir Rahman the Bangladeshi middle order batsman has totally failed in this tour so far. In the 3 ODIs Sabbir Rahman got chance to bat in all matches and managed to score only 27 runs in 3 innings.
My XI – Tamim Iqbal (Captain) Mahmudullah (Vice-Captain), Rovman Powell, Andre Russell, Ashley Nurse, Mustafizur Rahman,Mushfiqur Rahim, Andre Fletcher, Marlon Samuels, Mehidy Hasan, Carlos Brathwaite
