West Indies managed to recover from behind to beat Bangladesh in the 2nd ODI match. The feat was more remarkable since Bangladesh was in a rather stable position score wise.
Mohammad Isam of CricInfo thinks that West Indies will have the edge in this game:
“West Indies’ strength lies in their big-hitting allrounders and, with the addition of Andre Russell for the third match, they will look to bolster the middle and lower order at the relatively small Warner Park. Pollard on song could be brutal on the Bangladesh bowlers who have so far held their own in the first two games.
The visiting team’s bowlers have fought harder than their batsmen in the series. On a small ground, the bowlers will have a tougher time, compounding the problems of a struggling battling line-up that hit a new low in the second ODI.
So far only Anamul Haque and Tamim Iqbal have given hope of scoring a few runs. The plan to use Imrul Kayes and Shamsur Rahman at Nos. 3 and 4 may now be shelved while Mushfiqur Rahim is also due for some runs. Nasir Hossain has looked uncomfortable at the crease and Mahmudullah’s bowling may help him get another chance despite failures with the bat.
The situation can only lead one to think West Indies will have a cakewalk on Monday. However, Bangladesh have some of the most emotional supporters in the world, who would be expecting a response of some sort from the team after the Grenada debacle.”
