West Indies and Bangladesh are set to lock horns in the first game of the three-match ODI series on Sunday, July 10. The Providence Stadium in Guyana will host the encounter.
West Indies, led by Nicholas Pooran, have had a stupendous campaign thus far. After the first T20I of the series was washed off, the Caribbean team won the next two to win the series 2-0. On Thursday, they defeated the Tigers by five wickets.
However, 50-over cricket is expected to be a different ballgame altogether for the home team. West Indies recently defeated the Netherlands 3-0 in an ODI series, but getting past Bangladesh may not turn out to be that easy.
Bangladesh, led by Tamim Iqbal, were top of the ICC Super League points table for quite some time. They recently got pushed down to second spot by Jos Buttler's England, who beat the Dutch team in Amstelveen.
The Tigers will go into the series after beating South Africa 2-1 in the latter's backyard earlier this year. After losing the Test and T20I series, Bangladesh will be looking to put in a better showing in the upcoming ODIs.
