West Indies Team News & Playing 11
West Indies will need strong contributions from the likes of Shai Hope and Darren Bravo at the top of the order. Hope has been one of the team's most consistent performers with the bat and it will be crucial that he has a good outing on Tuesday. Bravo fared pretty well in the England ODI series and he will be expected to make a sizeable contribution. The team's middle-order batting will rely heavily on Jonathan Carter and Roston Chase. With the ball, it will be up to Sheldon Cottrell, Kemar Roach and skipper Jason Holder to pick up early wickets and put pressure on the Bangladeshi batsmen. Cottrell was impressive against England and the Windies will want him to show the same level of intensity. Ashley Nurse and Roston Chase will be the go-to options for the skipper when it comes to spin.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11
Bangladesh have plenty of firepower in their batting with Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim at the top and Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman holding fort in the middle-order. Tamim is going to be their key man with the bat. The opener is the team's leading run-getter in ODIs and a good start from him will set the tone for the rest of the innings. Mushfiqur is also one of their best batsmen while Sabbir was the most impressive of the lot in the previous ODI series against New Zealand. Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman and Rubel Hossain make up a strong pace attack while Mehidy Hasan and Mahmudullah are two quality options in the spin department. Mortaza is Bangladesh's best bowler in the 50-over format with 258 wickets. The skipper has loads of experience under his belt and he will look to bring all of it into use on Tuesday. Mustafizur has three five-wicket hauls in ODI cricket and he will be the biggest threat with the new ball in these conditions.

West Indies vs Bangladesh Prediction
West Indies and Bangladesh have been struggling to win games in this format and both will look to get back on the winning track and gain some momentum ahead of the World Cup. Bangladesh suffered a whitewash in their previous ODI series in New Zealand and they will be desperate to end their losing streak. The Windies had won their most recent ODI encounter against Bangladesh quite convincingly and that should give them some confidence. However, their side lacks quality in the batting department with most of their big guns busy in the IPL. Bangladesh are going in with a full-strength side and they will look to exploit the inexperience in this West Indian batting. We feel Bangladesh have a better chance of winning this match.
Back Bangladesh to beat West Indies at 2.20 with Betway and Bet365.
