WI vs BAN 1st ODI Dream11 Team Prediction and Probable XI: Preview

Hello and Welcome to our preview for Bangladesh vs West Indies ODI match. We are covering WI vs BAN Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the ODI match. The match is to be played at Providence Stadium, Guyana.

After an easy victory in test series for West Indies, It is time for the 3-match ODI series. West Indies would hope to continue their dominance as in tests however, Bangladesh would also try to get some momentum from their limited over success in past and expect a better performance from their team.

Bangladesh faced UWI Vice Chancellors in the practice match ahead of the series and won it by four wickets. Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim and N Hossain Shanto delivered with bat and Rubel Hossain along with Mosaddek Hossain took plenty of wickets.

Bangladesh will be boosted by return of Mashrafe Mortaza their experienced leader to lead the team from front. Also Mustafizur Rahman is fit and fine and can be lethal in West Indian pitches. Bangladesh will hope their limited over stars to put a good show and win the first ODI of the tour.

West Indies will want a similar performance from the team as in tests. Their lethal fast-bowling attack which did not give a chance to Bangladesh Batsman has changed though as Kemar Roach and Gabriel are not part of ODI squad. Kraigg Brathwaite leading scorer of test series scoring 239 runs in 3 innings played is also not a part of ODI squad. They will however be boosted by return of Andre Russell who is in good form both in batting as well as bowling.

A hard-fought encounter can be expected between the destructive Windies and a strong Bangladesh ODI team.
