Introduction: After taking an assailable 2-0 lead in the ODI series, Bangladesh would be more than happy to go into the Test series undefeated. On the other hand, the West Indian team without the services of senior players has looked like a toothless tiger so far.
With ODI super league going on, every win will help both the teams in making it to the main stage of the 2023 World Cup. The third and the last ODI series is scheduled to be played on the 25th January at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium in Chattogram.
Even though the hosts are completely in control, the visitors would be looking to latch on to the remaining 10 ODI league points.
BAN vs WI Dream11 Team Predictions: Recommended team
After analyzing the performance of each player in the recent past, it would be ideal to have an eleven with 1 WK, 4 Batsmen, 2 All-rounders and 4 bowlers.
Wicket-Keeper: Mushfiqur Rahim.
Batsmen: Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Kjorn Ottley and Rovman Powell.
All-rounders: Shakib Al Hasan and Kyle Mayers.
Bowlers: Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman.
Mushfiqur Rahim has done a great job with the gloves by grabbing all the opportunities that has come his way. He delivered 41 points in two ODIs so far. He has been the savior for the side in the middle overs.
Joshua Da Silva has to find a way to score at the top of the order if the side has to find success in the final ODI. He has two single digits to his name with the bat with some contribution coming from behind the stumps.
BAN vs WI Dream11 Team Predictions: Batsmen
Liton Das has always been a consistent performer at the top who has managed to contribute 21 points per game with the wood.
On the other hand, skipper Tamim Iqbal has finished the job for the side in both games making 44 and 50 in a low scoring contest. He was in great touch and looked unfazed of the opponent’s bowling attack.
Najmul Hossain Shanto needs to get his issues sorted by scoring as many runs as possible to cement his spot. Soumya Sarkar hasn’t got opportunity to bat but the experienced batsman is a beast at home in the middle order.
Sunil Ambris has averaged 35.75 against Bangladesh in 5 innings and should apply himself to get the team off to a great start.
Andre McCarthy did get rid of the initial nerves with the pitch doing its bit, but fell to a good one by Shakib. He managed 13 points in the 2nd ODI.
Rovman Powell has been the savior by coming up with some important runs at the backend to push the total to a respectable one. He has averaged 40 points indicating that he is the key to this batting lineup.
Shakib Al Hasan wouldn’t ask for a better restart to his career with 6 wickets and 62 runs in two games, becoming the X-factor for the side yet again. Mahmudullah Mahmudullah is another underrated all-rounder in the side who has risen to the occasion time and again. Having scored 2764 runs and taken 43 scalps, he has a big task in hand.
Kyle Mayers has been one of the few who has looked in control with respect to stroke-making. Despite falling for a runout in the 2nd game, he has the technique to negotiate in difficult conditions. Nkrumah Bonner who has made it to the side after 8 years did look in good touch in the 1st game but was dismissed cheaply in the 2nd game. John Campbell showed why he is a class act when he blasted the Ireland bowling lineup two years ago. Despite playing just the five ODIs, he is a dangerous candidate.
Bangladesh vs West Indies Dream11 Team predictions: Bowlers
Rubel Hossain brings a lot of experience to the table as the veteran quick is known to pick wickets with the old white ball.
Mustafizur Rahman is an X-factor bowler who has taken 4 wickets at an economy of 2.60. Hasan Mahmud is yet another young talent who should be backed and given a long stint in the international scene. His spell in the 1st ODI rattled the batting order of their rivals as he affected three dismissals.
Mehidy Hasan is more of a bowling all-rounder who is a tough customer at home. He bowled the match winning spell in the 2nd game as he ran through the opposition’s defense.
Alzarri Joseph who usually bowls in the middle overs and in the death has been highly effective with his variations. He has accounted for 48 scalps in 30 ODIs so far.
Chemar Holder who has just bowled 3 overs in two games went for 8.70 runs per over. On the other hand, Akeal Hosein has managed to figure out his lines and lengths that has helped him take wickets at regular intervals.
Veeraswamy Permaul will be the specialist spinner who is looking to cement his spot in the side with the likes of Roston Chase not available.
