The third and final game of the T20I series between the West Indies and Bangladesh will be played on July 7 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. West Indies currently lead the series by a 1-0 margin.
The first game of the series was washed out due to rain. Both sides arrived in the second T20I to get a much-needed lead in the series. The Caribbean side was brilliant as a good all-round performance saw them outplay Bangladesh in the second game of the series.
After electing to bat first, the West Indies' batters stepped up and contributed as they posted 193 on the board in their 20 overs. Bangladesh bowlers struggled as they only managed to pick five wickets in total.
The batters tried hard while chasing but kept losing wickets at regular intervals as they finished their innings on 158, losing the game by 35 runs.
West Indies have been very good in the series so far. They have fired in unison which the visitors have failed to do so far. Bangladesh need to bring out their A-game to draw level the series as another series loss looms large on them.
West Indies will be eager to win the final game and clinch the series.
