BAN vs WI 1st ODI Prediction & Betting Tips

Bangladesh will host West Indies for the 1st of the 3 match ODI series on 20th January 2021. The match will be played at the Shere Bangla Stadium and is set to get underway at 2:00 PM local time.

When it comes to ODI cricket, Bangladesh is a very dangerous team, especially in their home conditions. They’ve series wins of India, Pakistan, South Africa and New Zealand in the last few years and will start the series as favourites.

They’ve a very strong batting line up in Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das. 

In the bowling department, Mustafizur Rahman will lead their charge with the ball. Taskin Ahmed and Rubel Hossain will be the other pacers. The conditions will favour the spinners and Shakib al Hasan, Mahmudullah and Mehedy Hasan will pose a stiff challenge for the West Indians.

Bangladesh have won all their last 5 matches against the West Indies and we believe that the trend will continue in this series.

West Indies batting looks a little wobbly in Sunil Amris, Jason Mohammed, Andre McCarthy, Kyle Mayers, Joshua de Silva, Nkrumah Bonner. All these batsmen are pretty inexperienced and are expected to struggle on these slow wickets. 

The bowling will be led by Alzarri Joseph. The other bowlers West Indies might look to start with are Chemar Holder, Akeal Hosein and Raymon Reifer. 

Overall, Bangladesh look very strong in comparison to the inexperienced West Indian unit and are our favourites for the match.

Bangladesh vs West Indies Prediction

BAN vs WI Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keepers

    Liton Das at 90 is a good pick from this section. He’s a top order batsmen and can score very quickly. 

  • Batsmen

    Tamim Iqbal at 9.5, Sunil Ambris at 9.0, Rovman Powell at 9.0 and Mahmudullah at 9.0 will form our batting order.
    Tamim has a very good record against the West Indies and against this inexperienced West Indian bowling line up he will back himself to get a big one. Same can be said about Mahmudullah who’s a very important player in this Bangladesh set up. Ambris and Powell are the two best Caribbean batsmen.

  • All rounder

    Shakib al Hasan at 10.0 and Andy McCarthy at 8.5 will be our all rounder. Shakib is the no 1 all rounder in the world and will create a lot of trouble with his left arm spin. With the bat, he’s one of the best Bangladesh batsmen. There are lot of hopes from Andy McCarthy as well

  • Bowlers

    Alzarri Joseph at 9.0, Mustafizur Rahman at 9.0, Taskin Ahmed at 8.5 ad Mehedy Hasan at 8.5 will complete our team. Mustafizur will be very handy with his variations on this wicket while Taskin has emerged as one of the leading pacers for Bangladesh. Mehedy Hasan with his off spin can crate a lot of problems for West Indians while Joseph is the most experienced West Indian bowler. 

  • Captain/Vice Captain

    Shakib al Hasan is our preferred captain while Tamin Iqbal can be backed as his deputy

BAN vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Mahmudullah, Tamim Iqbal(vc), Rovman Powell, Sunil Ambris

  • All Rounder:Shakib al Hasan(C), Andy McCarthy

  • Wicket Keeper:Liton Das

  • Bowler:Mustafizue Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Mehedy Hasan, Alzarri Joseph
