Bangladesh (BAN) and West Indies (WI) will lock horns in the first ODI at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Sunday, July 10.
After a pulsating T20I series, Bangladesh and West Indies now shift their focus to the ODI format. The Windies have been the dominant side on this tour, winning both the Test and T20I series. The likes of Nicholas Pooran and Akeal Hosein have been impressive over the last week or so and will look to sustain the same form in the fifty-over format as well. However, Bangladesh cannot be taken lightly in white-ball cricket. They have a balanced roster with a heap of experience to fall back on in the likes of Mahmudullah Riyad and captain Tamim Iqbal. With both sides aiming to start the series on a high, an intriguing game beckons on Sunday.

Date and Time: 10th July 2022, 7:00 PM IST.
Venue: Providence Stadium, Guyana
The pitch at the Providence Stadium is a touch on the slower side, offering decent help to both the pacers and spinners. While there shouldn't be much swing available with the new ball, the pacers will look to take the pace off as the match progresses. The batters, on the other hand, will need to bide their time in the middle before going big. Wickets in hand will be key, with teams preferring to bat first upon winning the toss at the venue.
