Match Preview, Bangladesh vs West Indies: Both teams in a tight spot to keep hopes alive

A crucial match between the two teams as a win here will keep the hopes alive for the semi-final spot. Both the sides have 3 points each after playing four games in the tournament.

A crucial match between the two teams as a win here will keep the hopes alive for the semi-final spot. Both the sides have 3 points each after playing four games in the tournament.

Bangladesh must be pretty disappointed as their last game was washed out against Sri Lanka, one of the weakest team of the tournament. But since the weather is not in their hands, they must perform on the field and win the match.

Bangladesh certainly looks to be a better team than West Indies, as they have better batsmen (if not the hardest hitters of a cricketing ball), an excellent combination of pace and spin attack. They beat West Indies in similar conditions last month in tri-series in Ireland.

West Indian players need to apply their minds before going full monty against the bowlers. They have lost too many wickets in the middle overs in search of boundaries. They can’t have a better chance to uplift their game. Bangladesh is a good team, but the West Indies can beat them if they don’t play for the gallery and think from a team’s perspective.

Players to watch out

Shakib Al Hasan, the inform batsman, and bowler too. He has scored 260 runs already in the tournament and Bangladesh would be expecting him to perform once again for the team in a do or die situation.

Andre Russell, who had an outstanding IPL but an average World Cup so far. He had thrown his wicket when the team was cruising for a victory against Australia. He must play sensible cricket and wait for the right time for the onslaught against the opposition, and if he does, Bangladesh will be in big trouble.

The weather at Taunton is expected to be sunny and windy.
