This game kicks off at 09:30 a.m. at Providence Stadium in Guyana.

The West Indies have a young team and are attempting to introduce a new style of cricket in this format. They are, however, up against a very strong Bangladesh side, and a huge turnaround is required for them to win this game.

The Tigers dominated the West Indies on Wednesday and have excellent spinners who can exploit the pitch in Guyana. They are full of confidence going into this game.

West Indies Team News:

On Wednesday, Alzarri Joseph returned from injury to open and lead the bowling attack. He was one of two changes, with Keemo Paul also starting and Jayden Seales and Anderson Phillip sitting out. On this pitch, the hosts could use some extra spin, but they don’t have any other spinners in their lineup.

West Indies Squad

Shai Hope (wk), Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (c), Rovman Powell, Akeal Hosein, Keemo Paul, Romario Shepherd, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie, Keacy Carty, Anderson Phillip, Jayden Seales

Players to watch out for:

Shai Hope

The West Indian keeper-batter-opener will be disappointed with the manner of his dismissal in the second One-Day International. He must occupy the crease and ensure that his team bats out the entire 50-over match.

Alzarri Joseph

The pace bowler has been very impressive in international and T20 games around the world in 2022. He made life difficult for all three Bangladesh batters.

Akeal Hosein

The spinner caused a few issues but was inconsistent in the series’ second game. On this spinning pitch, he needs to be at his best to give the hosts the best chance.

Possible Playing XI:

Kyle Mayers, Shai Hope (wk), Shamarh Brooks, Brandon King, Nicholas Pooran (c), Rovman Powell, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein,  Alzarri Joseph, Keemo Paul, Gudakesh Motie, Akeal Hosein

West Indies Team Form

West Indies have now lost five consecutive one-day internationals, and their 3-0 series win over the Netherlands in May and June seems distant.

Bangladesh Team News:

Despite a convincing win in the first game of the series on Sunday, the Tigers made one change to their lineup and included an extra spinner. Mosaddek Hossain replaced Taskin Ahmed, who will have to wait for his 50th ODI appearance.

Bangladesh Squad

Tamim Iqbal (c), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Litton Das, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mosaddek Hossain, Mehidy Hasan, Nasum Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Anamul Haque, Taijul Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain

Players to watch out for:

The number three batter was very impressive in the second ODI and wasted no time getting to the crease. He won the game by scoring 32 runs off 27 balls.

Tamim Iqbal

The experienced captain completed his half-century with the game’s final runs to secure the series victory in the final game.

Mahedi Hasan

The spin bowling all-rounder has seven wickets so far in the series. On Wednesday, he took the final three wickets in West Indies’ innings.

Possible Playing XI:

Tamim Iqbal (c), Litton Das, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mosaddek Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed

Bangladesh Team Form

Bangladesh has now won three consecutive One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and four of their last five in this format. In the second ODI of this series, they were very impressive with both bat and ball.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Top Team Batsmen:

We are rooting for West Indies batsmen Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, and Shamarh Brooks. Mayers has a strong record against Bangladesh, including an ODI century.

Tamim Iqbal, Litton Das, and Najmul Hossain Shanto are our batsmen picks for Bangladesh. Hossain Shanto looked assured at the crease and will be hoping for another chance in this ODI.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Top Team Bowlers:

West Indies will be led by Alzarri Joseph, Akeal Hosein, and Gudakesh Motie. Motie impressed with his spin bowling on Wednesday, taking the only wicket in Bangladesh’s innings.

Our bowling picks for Bangladesh are Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, and Shoriful Islam. In the second ODI, Islam dismissed the dangerous Rovman Powell.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Head to Head

The Tigers have defeated the West Indies in all ten of their previous games in this format. If they win this game and win the series 3-0, the teams will be tied on 21 wins.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Toss Prediction

Bangladesh has won the toss in both games of the series so far. Given the West Indies’ shaky batting, we expect the Tigers to field first and the West Indies to follow suit.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Pitch Report

On Wednesday, the spinners had plenty of grip, turn, and uneven bounce on this surface. The pitch is slightly two-paced, and it is not a good wicket for risky cross-bat shots.

There is a chance of thunderstorms early in the game, but with sunny and hot conditions forecast throughout the late morning and afternoon, we should be able to complete all 100 overs.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Prediction

The visitors, who looked completely out of place in the Tests and T20Is earlier this summer, have made a significant improvement. The pitch will undoubtedly suit their spin bowlers, and we expect the West Indies batters to struggle once more. We believe Bangladesh will win and take the series 3-0.

Because of the weather on Sunday, the game was shortened, and there is a good chance that this match will not be a 50-over affair as well. Tamim Iqbal makes a huge difference in Bangladesh, and his presence at the top of the order gives them a lot of confidence. We expect Bangladesh to defeat the West Indies in this ODI.
