Bangladesh face 1st T20 against West Indies today

Bangladesh will play the opening game of the three-match T20 International at Windsor Park in Dominica today (Saturday).

The match which starts at 11.30pm as per Bangladesh time will be aired live on T Sports Channel.

After being whitewashed in two-match Test series, it’s high time for Bangladesh to bounce back but things are not going well for the Tigers, who just won one in last 10 matches in this format. That lone victory came against Afghanistan at home. Before that they were whitewashed in three-match T20 series at home against Pakistan and lost all of the five Super 12 matches in T20 World Cup.

Last time when Bangladesh toured in West Indies in 2018, they won the three-match T20 series by 2-1 after being swept in Test series, although the T20 series was held in USA. Moreover, while Bangladesh boast a disastrous record in T20 format, their win-loss ratio against the two –time Champions West Indies is something to savour. They played 13 matches against the Caribbean side, winning five, losing seven while one was abandoned.
