Windies v Bangladesh

Bangladesh Captain Mashrafe Mortaza says his team’s reputation in limited-overs cricket is not to be taken lightly, as the visitors prepare for the first ODI against Windies on Sunday at the Providence National Stadium.
Bangladesh arrived in Guyana on Friday night, looking for a new start in a new format following a nightmare 2-0 loss in the Tests. Mortaza, who has been one of the driving forces behind the Asians’ success in limited-overs cricket, said during the pre-match training session at Providence on Saturday, that the Tigers were tailor-made for this format and were banking on their track record.

“I think this format suits us a lot and we have a good combination. West Indies have two good batsmen at the top, but we have to be positive and do what we can do to win like bowling in the right areas and we can get their top order out, then we can have some fun,” said the Bangladesh Captain.
The all-rounder highlighted that the Windies star-studded team, which include Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Evin Lewis and others, will be a force to reckon with, but is backing his vast bowling options to deliver.
