The second ODI between West Indies and Bangladesh takes place on Friday at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium.
Hosts Bangladesh were at their rampant best in the previous game. With the returning Shakib Al Hasan putting in a memorable performance with the ball, Bangladesh skittled West Indies to a modest total and chased it down comfortably.
Bangladesh will ideally look to close out the series with another win. Given their riches in both departments, the hosts would fancy their chances.
However, West Indies, despite lacking quality, did show glimpses of their ability with both bat and ball. The likes of Kyle Mayers and Akeal Hosein were impressive and could have a say in the outcome of the second ODI as well.
Although the tourists enter this game as the underdogs, they certainly have the wherewithal to spring a surprise on the more-fancied Bangladesh. With both sides eyeing a crucial win in the series, a riveting contest could beckon at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Friday.

Tamim Iqbal (C), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mahedi Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Liton Das, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud and Shoriful Islam.

Match: Bangladesh vs West Indies, 2nd ODI
Date: January 22, 2021, at 11:00 AM IST
Venue: Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.
A relatively high-scoring game beckons at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, but there should be some help on offer for the bowlers.
The previous game saw the likes of Hasan Mahmud and Mustafizur Rahman get some movement off the surface, which should be the case on Friday as well.
The batsmen will need to bide their time before going big, and wickets in hand could be crucial for both teams. With the pitch likely to slow down as the game progresses, both teams will ideally want to bat first and post a total of around 250, which would be about par at this venue.
