After a disappointing performance in the test series, Bangladesh will eye a strong comeback in the one-day series that is all set to start from 22nd July. Mashrafe Mortaza will lead Bangladesh for the three-match one-day series. The change of formats might help Bangladesh as they are a much better one-day unit than West Indies. Bangladesh is currently 7th in the ICC ODI Team Rankings while West Indies are lying at 9th with 69 points. Jason Holder will be keen to make sure West Indies can also dominate Bangladesh in the upcoming one-day series.
2014 was the last time West Indies and Bangladesh played a bilateral one-day series. Hosts West Indies completed a 3-0 clean sweep over the visitors.
2009 was when Bangladesh achieved their maiden one-day series in West Indies. The visitors will take from the past and will be hoping to push West Indies in this upcoming series.
29 matches have been played between West Indies and Bangladesh. West Indies have won 19 one-day games while Bangladesh have won only 7 games. Two games have been ended in a no result.
0 centuries for Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal. The Bangladesh’s most decorated batting trio has not managed to reach three figures against West Indies in limited-overs format.
39 wickets have been taken by Jason Holder for West Indies in the limited-overs format. He has topped the bowling charts for his side and has a decent average of 30.74 in 29 matches.
21 wickets have taken by Mustafizur Rahman for Bangladesh against West Indies in the limited overs format. The left-arm seamer has an excellent average of 26.85 in the 19 games played against West Indies.
927 runs scored by Tamim Iqbal for Bangladesh since the start of the 2017. The left-hander averages 66.21 with two centuries to his name. Clearly, Iqbal will hold the key for Bangladesh in the upcoming one-day series.
