Team Analysis:


Bangladesh Cricket Team, ICC Cricket World Cup

Bangladesh may not roll out any improvements in their line-up. Mohammed Mithun hasn’t conveyed as he has before; he is as yet a top prospect to get runs to the scoreboard. If changes occur, at that point, Sabbir Rehman will get chance over Rubel Hussain. Mashrafe has been in lousy structure and needs to convey or else he may be out of the gathering, even Mustafizur needs to get his previous self to underwrite and rule on the adversaries.

Shakib Al Hasan has conveyed the group, and he has been playing like a solitary warrior on the ground. Tamim Iqbal has been conflicting and is worrisome. Soumya Sarkar needs to give a robust begin for the group, passing the onus to Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah. Saifuddin has the bore to provide exhibitions with, and he needs to give in a straight or upside graph.

Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (WK), Mohammad Mithun/Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Mustafizur Rahman.

West Indies had a bad beating from England in the previous match. Except for Nicholas Pooran rest of the team scummed against the English pace attack. Chris Gayle, the universe boss, failed to give a good start. Top performers Shai Hope, Jason Holder also couldn’t handle the pace of the team. This is a sign of worry for the Carrebian Indies as they were not able to give a fighting total to the side. Andre Russell‘s cameo arrived but was short-lived.

The bowling for the department was on the shoulders of Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cottrell. The bowlers were also not able to defend the target and had a lot of issues within the team. Chief Holder was able to handle the batting but lacked support, Chris Gayle got the ball, and he gave some high numbers, but the full-time bowlers need to step up. With such miserable performance, the team nowhere looks to reach till semis.
