West Indies will look to seal a series win against Bangladesh when they take on The Tigers in the second T20I at Lauderhill. West Indies won the first T20I by 7 wickets via Duckworth Lewis method to take 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. West Indies would be eyeing revenge of the ODI series loss against Bangladesh. The Tigers would look to finish off the tour in a flourish and bag the T20I series as well. West Indies’ limited-overs team are extremely unpredictable. They can be ruthless and dangerous on their day and mediocre on their off-days. They will either blast the bowling on their day or succumb to record low totals on their off-days. West Indies and Bangladesh have now played six T20 internationals against each other. While the former have won four of those, the latter have won two. The Windies have now won the last three completed matches they have played against Bangladesh in this format. Hence, it is difficult to say which West Indies line-up will turn up in the second T20I against Bangladesh. West Indies are playing at home and know the conditions extremely well. But Bangladesh will come hard at Windies with the series on line.
Best economical pick – Kesrick Williams will pose the main threat for the Bangladeshi batsmen. The fast bowler claimed a four-wicket haul at Basseterre and has been performing well of late.
Top captains & vice captains – Andre Russell whose blazing 21-ball 35 took the game away from Bangladesh last time, is expected to replicate his performance in Florida. Evin Lewis, on the other hand, has played two T20Is at this ground and has a century in one of those. The opening batsman is having a strike-rate of around 195 here. So, he might be the go-to man for the hosts.
Smart pick – Tamim Iqbal is Bangladesh's leading run-getter in the 20-overs format and has one hundred and five fifties to his name. The opening batsman was dismissed for a duck in the last game and he will be looking to make amends this time.
Cautious Pick – Bangladeshi opener Soumya Sarkar has been a big failure in this format for the tigers. Both Bangladeshi openers Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar failed in the opening fixture. As they were dismissed for a golden duck. Soumya Sarkar has now 5 ducks in T20 Internationals.
My XI – Andre Russell (Captain) Evin Lewis (Vice-Captain), Tamim Iqbal, Kesrick Williams, Liton Das, Ashley Nurse, Mustafizur Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Keemo Paul, Nazmul Islam
