After a disappointing Test and ODI series West Indies bounced back in the T20I format as they thrashed the hosts by 8 wickets in the first game and will now look to seal the series when they face off Bangladesh in the second T20I in Dhaka tonight.
In the first match, West Indies' bowling and batting were top class especially Sheldon Cottrell and Shai Hope who took 4 wickets and scored 16 balls fifty respectively. On the other hand, Bangladesh took the game a bit lightly and their batsmen played so many reckless shots. They need to bat carefully and should focus on building partnerships and the Dhaka pitch will assist spinners so their spinners have a good chance to make a come back in the series.
