WI vs BAN Match Prediction


West Indies and Bangladesh will be playing the 23rd match of the T20 World Cup 2021 today at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. You can catch the live streaming of this match on Disney+ Hotstar at 7:30 PM (IST).

Both the teams have had their shares of injury concerns in the tournament. Just before Bangladesh’s last game, it was announced that Mohammad Saifuddin sustained an injury and was ruled out of the tournament. Bangladesh has included Rubel Hussain to replace Saifuddin.

Also, Obed McCoy suffered a right shin injury that has ruled him out of the competition. Jason Holder, former captain of the West Indies cricket team, has replaced McCoy. Holder was already there in UAE as a reserve player. ICC has approved his selection.

Both West Indies and Bangladesh have had a similar journey in the tournament. They have lost their first two matches and will look at this game as a surface to bounce back. West Indies lost the first game against England by six wickets after getting dismissed for 55 runs. The bowlers did a pretty decent job in containing the English batters. However, their efforts were not enough as the score on board was easy for England to chase.

After this disaster, West Indies walked on to play the next game against South Africa. The batting improved by a considerable margin in this game as West Indies put a total of 143 runs for the loss of eight wickets in 20 overs. Evin Lewis made 56 runs off 35 deliveries. The main culprit in this game was Lendl Simmons. He made 16 runs off 35 balls and equaled the record for scoring most runs without a boundary in a T20 WC match. His innings slowed down the process, and the middle-order couldn’t revive the team.

South Africa chased down this total in 18.2 overs on the back of some fine innings by Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, and Aiden Markram. Markram was the most brutal of these three. He made 51 runs off just 26 deliveries.

Bangladesh played its first Super 12 T20 World Cup match against Sri Lanka. The Bangladeshi batters made 171 runs for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs. Mohammad Naim continued from where he left during the qualifying stage and scored 62 runs off 52 deliveries. Mushfiqur Rahim made 57 runs off 37 balls.

The total looked good, and Bangladesh was sure of gaining two points out of this game. However, Sri Lankan batters, specially Charith Asalanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa, had other plans. Asalanka made 80 off 49, and Rajapaksa made 53 off 31 deliveries. They both won the match for Sri Lanka in 18.5 overs.

Bangladesh’s second game was against England. Against the quality English attack, Bangladesh really had no clue. England’s bowlers dismissed the top-order for just 26 runs. From that point, Bangladesh somehow crawled to a total of 124 runs for the loss of nine wickets in 20 overs.

England chased down this total in just 14.1 overs and won the match by eight wickets. It gave a massive boost to England’s net run rate.
