The limited-overs series between West Indies and Bangladesh kicks off on July 2 with a three-match T20I series, which will be followed by a three-match ODI series. The first game of the T20I series will be played at the Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica on Saturday.
West Indies were brilliant in the two-match Test series held last month. They completed a 2-0 whitewash as the Asian side never stood any chance in both matches.
Kraigg Brathwaite led the Test side and now Nicholas Pooran will be back leading the white-ball side. Some exciting T20 players will be a part of the squad who will look to start the T20I series on a winning note. The home conditions will definitely favor the Caribbean side, will start the T20I series as favorites.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, are really struggling on this tour. They have lost both Tests so far and need something special to bounce back.
Mahmudullah will continue to lead the Bangladeshi side in the shortest format. Most of their players were part of the Test squad and will look to use their experience of playing in these conditions while playing the shorter formats. They have built a solid squad and will be eager for a turnaround in fortunes with a change in format after a drubbing in the Test series.
