West Indies vs Bangladesh T20 World Cup Highlights: West Indies hold their nerves and register a 3-run win over Bangladesh. With Bangladesh needing 13 to win off the last over, Andre Russell bowled a fabulous final over, giving away 10 and helping WI win a last-ball thriller in Sharjah. Mahmudullah and Liton Das were involved in a wonderful partnership as Bangladesh needed 30 off the final 3 overs. Russell and Jason Holder got West Indies their first two wickets as Bangladesh lost openers Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Naim. In the first innings, a cameo from Jason Holder and a fine knock from Nicholas Pooran propelled West Indies to 142/7 after struggling early on. Troubles mounted for West Indies as captain Kieron Pollard had to retire hurt and Andre Russell was run out at the non-striker's end without facing a ball, but from there Roston Chase and Pooran stitched a quickfire fifty-plus partnership to put the innings back on track. Previously, Mahedi Hasan got Shimron Hetmyer out caught at long off, which was after Mustafizur Rahman dismissed Evin Lewis in the third over to get his team an early breakthrough and Hasan clean bowled Chris Gayle to remove both openers. West Indies were asked to bat after Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bowl.

    And now it's a misfield. Bangladesh need 2 off the final ball

    This is absolutely abysmal from West Indies. Jason Holder the man to misfield off all people. Mahmudullah back on strike. 4 needed off 1.

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:20 PM IST

    Dropped! Fletcher puts it down

    Oh dear! What has Fletcher done here? That was Mahmudullah. Poor effort, and what more… he has given 2 more. 6 needed off 2.

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:19 PM IST

    Russell nails the yorker

    And still, Bangladesh run two. Mahmudullah and Afif Hossain with a brilliant piece of running between the wicket. 8 needed off 3. Something has got to give.

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:17 PM IST

    13 needed off 6

    That's what the equation is. 13 needed off the final over. It's Andre Russell who will bowl the crunch over. He begins well; just a couple of runs. 11 off 5. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:16 PM IST

    GONE! Das out caught at long on

    A slower one from Bravo and Das, going for the biggie, holes out at long on. Only one man could have taken that catch, Jason Holder. And thankfully for West Indies, Holder was the right man placed at that position.

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:11 PM IST

    First ball of the 19th over: SIX

    Smoked. Right out of the middle of the bat. Bravo pitches it in the slot and the bat made a crunching sound. Bangladesh bring the gap down with a six off the first ball.

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:09 PM IST

    Great comeback from Rampaul

    After getting hit for a four off the first ball of the over, Rampaul has pulled things back giving away four off the next five. 22 needed off the last 2 overs. It's going to be a tense finish alright.

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:07 PM IST

    FOUR to start the over

    Liton Das puts the pressure back on West Indies hitting the first ball of the over for a four. A really loose ball from Rampaul, who follows the batsman's movement and still bowls it into the batsman's pads. Glances it away and it ahs four written all over it.

  • Oct 29, 2021 07:03 PM IST

    Interesting duel between Bravo and Mahmudullah

    The T20 death bowler Dwayne Bravo in full display. He is mixing up those slower balls outside off, teasing Mahmudullah in a hide and seek game. Just 3 runs off the 17th over. This is getting very interesting.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:58 PM IST

    Cheeky… superb stuff from Mahmudullah

    No nerves shown by Mahmudullah as he scoops one for four. 11 runs already off the over. Bangladesh need 33 off 24. Nine out of 10 times, you would back the team chasing to pull this one off.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:57 PM IST

    Consecutive wides from Holder

    Holder tries to use the slower ball but on both occasions, lose control and sends down a couple of wides. Is that the first sign of pressure mounting? Seems so as Mahmudullah and Liton Das pinch in a quick double.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:54 PM IST

    Pickup shot for 4

    Russell strays on to Mahmudullah's pads but the Bangladesh captain is up to the task. Clips it off the legs and it results in a four. 44 needed off 30, and with six wickets remaining, you've got to believe this is Bangladesh's game.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:46 PM IST

    Timely strike

    Bowled him! Bangladesh 90/4 as Rampaul cleans up Mushfiqur Rahim. The wicketkeeper batsman tries to play the scoop, but Rampaul is a step ahead of him bowling a slower ball. It is getting tense in Sharjah as out walks the Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:43 PM IST

    Mushfiqur cuts for four

    Ravi Rampaul loses his length. Drops the ball short and wide to which Mushfiqur played the cut shot with panache to get him his first boundary. Pierces the gap between point and gully. No third man and it was always going to be easy pickings.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:40 PM IST

    Liton Das has moved to 31 off 29 balls

    Struggling for runs prior to the match, this has been a nice, important innings from Liton Das. He has not shied away from punishing the loose balls and showed immense patience to ensure the scoreboard keeps ticking. He has rotated the strike well with his partners.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:32 PM IST

    Four more, poor bowling from Bravo

    He is giving away some freebies in this 12th over. All the pressure that had mounted on Bangladesh have been taken away in a matter of two balls. That's what happens in T20 cricket, folks. A wide to follow. One of world's best T20 bowlers appears rattled.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:31 PM IST

    Extras… Five Wides

    Not what the West Indie needed. Bravo, round the wicket, sends one down the legside and even Nicholas Pooran can't stop that. Five bonus runs for Bangladesh. Alright then, 73 needed off 54 balls.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:27 PM IST

    OUT! Chris Gayle still sharp in the field

    WICKET! Akeal Hosain strikes as Chris Gayle takes a sharp catch to dismiss Soumya Sarkar. Bangladesh 60/3. Just when the partnership was beginning to look threatening for West Indies, the left-arm spinner strikes. A timely wicket for the Windies and the pressure is back on Bangladesh.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:26 PM IST

    FOUR: Sarkar punishes Hosain

    A poor delivery, really. Darted halfway down the wicket. Soumya Sarkar chips down and hammers it through the leg side for four.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:25 PM IST

    10 gone, it's anybody's game at this stage

    We are halfway through the innings and Bangladesh have reached 55/2. Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar have hit a boundary each and before they get their eyes in, West Indies would want to break this partnership.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:24 PM IST

    Four for Liton Das

    Great improvisation of sorts from Das. Walks down the wicket to a slower ball from Dwayne Bravo and pierces the gap on the off side for a four. As Harsha Bhogle aptly pointed out on air: “The secret lied on the footwork”.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:11 PM IST

    Russell for Sarkar: FOUR

    Pitched in short from Russell and Soumya Sakar is not going to miss out on that opportunity. Pulls the ball with brute force for a one-bounce four.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:08 PM IST

    Five off Akeal Hosain's first over

    West Indies hoping to slow things down even further, brining on spinner Akeal Hosain, who bowls a decent first over giving away five singles.

  • Oct 29, 2021 06:02 PM IST

    OUT: The batsman plays on

    Oh! Loose shot from Mohammad Naim as he plays on to a delivery from Jason Holder. Holder had stifled him for a while and Naim's patience runs out. Tries to dab the ball to third man but inside edged it onto the stumps. West Indies pulling things back here.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:54 PM IST

    Bangladesh dealt first blow

    WICKET! Russell gets Shakib as Bangladesh lose their 1st wicket in chase. The ball after the drop catch, Shakib tries to go big but gets absolutely no timing on that one. Holder completes the formality of completing the catch.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:53 PM IST

    DROPPED: Hayden Walsh the culprit

    The match continues to witness some sloppy fielding. Bangladesh dropped 3 and now we have the first West Indies fumble. Naim hit the ball straight to Walsh at midwicket, a relatively easy change which proved a toughie for Walsh.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:50 PM IST

    Bravo puts in a brilliant dive to save a certain boundary

    Wow! Dwayne Bravo may be 38-year-old but he still fields like 28. Puts in a terrific dive at mid off to stop a ball that certainly was heading towards the boundary.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:43 PM IST

    FOUR: Rampaul welcomed with a boundary

    Rampaul sends towards Naim's chest but he picks it up and swivels the ball in the leg side for a four. Just wide off the fielder at midwicket. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:41 PM IST

    Smacked for FOUR

    Hello, isn't that knee in pain? Well, apparently not as Shakib jumps out and pummels Holder for a four through the covers. That's one way to make sure there's no need for quick singles. Solid strike. After 2 overs, Bangladesh are 10/0.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:38 PM IST

    Surprise, surprise

    Shakib Al Hasan has walked out to open the innings with Mohammad Naim. Is the wobbly leg the reason behind the move? Could be. Takes a single and appears in discomfort immediately. Rest assured, there would be no more quick singles for a bit.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:23 PM IST

    End of first innings: Pollard finishes with a SIX

    Kieron Pollard returned after getting retired hurt to smoke a six off the final ball as West Indies finished their innings on 142/7. Three sixes in the final over have lift Windies to a competitive total.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:19 PM IST

    Holder goes SIX, SIX

    A belated entry into this World Cup, Jason Holder has smoked back to back sixes. First, a low full toss dispatched over the ropes, and the next one was in the slot. Result: The ball easily clears the ropes.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:18 PM IST

    Wicket off the first ball of the last over

    OUT! Bravo goes for 1. Five balls remain. West Indies 7 down now for 123. Wickets tumbling now for WI.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:13 PM IST

    WICKETS: Shoriful gets Pooran, Chase

    Two wickets in 2 balls as Shoriful ends Pooran and Chase's stays. Pooran out caught in the deep and Chase gets bowled the next ball. Shoriful was on a hat-trick but it was safely negotiated by Jason Holder. who tucked the ball away for a single.

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:07 PM IST

    SIX, and with that the 50-run partnership

    Tries the reverse sweep but finds the fielder. Next ball is a lot flatter and Pooran tonks it for a maximum. And with that, the fifty partnership is up between Pooran and Chase for the fifth wicket. He has raced to 39 off 20, while Chase is on 38 off 44 balls. Oh, what contrast. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:05 PM IST

    Mahedi to Pooran: One bounce and four

    Mahedi Hasan comes back for his final over and he has been greeted with a boundary down the ground. Gives himself room and Pooran gets a lot of bat to that stroke. Almost goes the distance. West Indies finally getting some impetus going in the final few overs. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 05:00 PM IST

    100 up for West Indies

    It's taken them over 16 overs, but thanks to some lusty blows from Nicholas Pooran in the last two overs, the 100 is up for West Indies. A 150-plus total looks gettable from here on, and if Pooran fires, perhaps even more.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:56 PM IST

    Shakib to Pooran: SIX, SIX

    Ah, the shackles seem to be breaking finally for the West Indies. Shakib comes round over the wicket and Pooran slog sweeps for back to back sixes. Terrific from Pooran here. Almost an identical ball, identical strokes and similar results. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:54 PM IST

    FOUR: Solid hit

    Pooran has looked good since he came to bat. He spots the slower one nicely, waits for it and once it is in the arc, Pooran smashes it towards midwicket for a four. The over West Indies were looking for as they collect 14 off it.  

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:52 PM IST

    Four down the ground, much-needed hit

    Down the ground goes Chase and drills Mustafizur down the ground. Good effort from the fielder but he cannot get enough to stop it. Just five overs to go but West Indies need a move on. Bravo and Holder are yet to come. Certainly, one of these 2 need to go big now. They are not even 80.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:50 PM IST

    It has been Bangladesh all the way

    After putting up a clinical show in the first 10 overs, Bangladesh have not taken this foot off the pedal. Roston Chase is 29 off 37 on his T20I debut and Nicholas Pooran is 7 off 7. Surely, this pair has got to get the scoreboard moving.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:42 PM IST

    Pollard retires hurt, Russell run out

    Oh dear! Things from from bad to worse for the West Indies. Firstly, Kieron Pollard has retired hurt and Andre Russell is run out at the non-striker's end without facing a ball. A bullet drive from Chase takes Taskin's knee and rolls back onto the stumps. Russell is distraughtWI 62/4.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:39 PM IST

    Bangladesh are a review down

    Huge appeal against Pollard from Taskin but nothing from the umpire. They go for the review and although the impact was on the pads first, it was outside off.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:36 PM IST

    A less than 100 percent Shakib enough to stifle West Indies

    Shakib is clearly not comfortable, but even a half-fit Shakib is enough to keep West Indies quiet. He has given away just 7 runs from his two overs as Pollard and Chase continue to struggle to find the middle of their bats.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:32 PM IST

    FOUR: Finally, a breakout shot

    Slightly short from Mustafizur, but Chase is up to the challenge. Swats the ball on the leg side and despite a great effort from the fielder running in at deep square leg, it's a boundary. Only the third of the innings.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:28 PM IST

    Into the second half of the innings

    West Indies are trying to claw back into the game after Bangladesh took the honours in the first 10 overs. WI are only 49, and would require a humongous effort from either Pollard or Chase, or both from WI's point of view, to get them to a strong total.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:24 PM IST

    Shakib in pain, it's evident

    The veteran Bangladesh all-rounder is visibly in pain as he comes on the bowl. A little grimace on the face as he lets the ball out of his hands. The moment he is released the ball, the hand is automatically favouring the left knee. And yet, he has bowled a tight over, giving away just 4 off it. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:21 PM IST

    Nine overs gone and only 2 boundaries for West Indies

    Only 2 boundaries in nine overs. Imagine that from a side like West Indies, who have heavy hitters packed from top to bottom. The average first innings total at the venue is 136 and WI, who are 3 down, would be hoping for a little more than that. Pollard, Chase key for them.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:18 PM IST

    Runs not coming for the Windies

    Excellent stuff from Bangladesh. Shoriful Islam and Mahedi Hasan have been successful in keeping West Indies quiet. Pollard and Chase have been restricted to nudging and dabbing the ball. No room for the big hits whatsoever. This is clinical from 

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:13 PM IST

    Almost another wicket

    Bangladesh are making things happen here. Taskin squares up West Indies captain Kieron Pollard as the ball takes the edge but lands short of the keeper. The Windies need to take a breath and slow things down a little. Momentum is all Bangladesh's right now.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:11 PM IST

    Wicket: West Indies 3 down already

    GONE! Hetmyer holes out in the deep and West Indies are in trouble. These tactics are not working for the Windies. Relief for Hasan. A dropped catch followed by a wicket. Hetmyer goes inside out but neither good timing or elevation. The catch is taken and rightfully, a dejected Hetmyer walks off. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:07 PM IST

    Dropped! It could have been three

    Mahedi Hasan puts down a straight forward chance. He drops it short and Chase hits it right back at the bowler. But probably Hasan wasn't ready for it. He gets both his hands to it but grasses it. The commentator calls it a big miss. Will it prove to be so?

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:04 PM IST

    End of the Powerplay, and it's belonged to Bangladesh 

    Just two boundaries in the first 6 overs. Not the kind of start West Indies would have hoped for. And to make matters worse, they have lost openers Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis already. Chase and Hetmyer in with a huge task of rebuilding the innings. From 50/1 against England, WI have been restricted to 29/2 by Bangladesh.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:02 PM IST

    WI vs BAN: Back-to-back appeals, incredible scenes

    Two identical deliveries from Shoriful, hitting Chase on the pads as the ball stays low on both instances. On both occasions though, the ball landed outside leg. No movement from the umpire and rightly so.

  • Oct 29, 2021 04:00 PM IST

    FOUR: Hetmyer tucks it away for four

    Shoriful Islam gets the ball and he starts off by straying a delivery on Shimron Hetmyer's pads. The left-handed batsman plays the glance and places the ball nicely wide of the fielder at short third man as the ball goes away into the boundary ropes.  

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:56 PM IST

    Timber! Mahedi lands 2nd blow

    Bowled him! Mahedi Hasan with the big wicket of Chris Gayle. West Indies. Full and quick and the Universe Boss has no answer to it. Sound of timberrr… WI are 2 down and without much on the board.

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:54 PM IST

    Meanwhile, Shakib has gone off the field

    The news is that Shakib Al Hasan has left the field. He looked in trouble and hobbled off the ground. Not encouraging sings but B'desh would hope this is nothing serious.

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:50 PM IST

    OUT! That's the first one down

    Wicket! Mustafizur gets the in-form Evin Lewis. Bangladesh lose their first wicket. On the pads but Lewis, trying to heave the ball on the leg side gets a top edge and Mushfiqur Rahim takes the catch.

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:48 PM IST

    Huge appeal against Gayle

    Mustafizur gets the ball to drift in, beating Gayle as it raps him on the pads. A huge appeal follows but not out given by the umpire as the ball seemed to be going down leg.

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:45 PM IST

    Run out change missed, Gayle survives

    Oh dear! Bangladesh have missed hitting the bull's eye. Gayle tucked the ball and took off. There was no run and Gayle surely isn't the swiftest of runners. Shakib had all the time in the world to line himself for the throw. However, he has a shy at the stumps and misses it. Gayle wasn't even the frame. Will Bangladesh live to regret this?

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:43 PM IST

    FOUR: Booming cover drive from Lewis

    Evin Lewis is away. After three dot balls, Lewis' eyes widen watching that juicy half-volley outside off from Taskin. Hammers it away through covers for the first boundary of the innings.

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:40 PM IST

    Taskin from the other end

    Spin from one end, and pacer from the other. In comes Taskin Ahmed storming in against Gayle. Remember, Gayle these days takes time to get the big guns out and Bangladesh would want Taskin to test the big-hitter's patience. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:37 PM IST

    What a tidy first over from Hasan

    He's kept it tight, has Mahedi Hasan. Bowling to Gayle and Lewis, the spinner gave away just 4 in the first over, including a close LBW shout against Lewis. Four singles from the first over.

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:35 PM IST

    WI vs BAN: Here we go

    Mahedi Hasan with the ball in hand, up against West Indies' destructive duo of Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis. What a welcome change to see The Universe Boss back at the top opening the innings for the Windies.

  • Oct 29, 2021 03:00 PM IST

    Toss update: Bangladesh to bowl

    It's time for the all-important toss. Pollard and Mahmudullah are out there for the flip of the coin. Tails is the call and tails it is… Bangladesh have opted to bowl. Team news as follows: Nurul, Nasum are not playing for Bangladesh. For West Indies: Simmons out and Holder in, Roston Chase makes his T20I debut.

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:55 PM IST

    Sharjah stats: Win the toss and bowl

    Nine out of 10 times has the team chasing won the Super 12 matches in Sharjah. The average first-innings total at this venue is 136. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:50 PM IST

    Laxman and Sammy weigh in on WI's team selection

    Laxman says it is a no-brainer and that if it were up to him, he would pick Jason Holder in the team. As for Lendl Simmons, he doesn't have much backing at this point. Ideal combo would be to make Lewis and Gayle open with Holder replacing Simmons. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:46 PM IST

    WI vs BAN: Toss coming up

    The all-important toss is just 15 minutes away. The pattern in the T20 World Cup has favoured teams batting second. But since this is a day game, the dew factor won't be a problem for the team bowling second. Remember, Pollard and Mahmudullah's WI and BAN need a win to keep their semi-final hopes alive.

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:40 PM IST

    WI vs BAN: Here's how Group 1 currently stands

    England and Australia are right at the top with 4 points each after a couple of wins. They are followed by South Africa and Sri Lanka who have lost one and won one each. At fifth and sixth are Bangladesh and West Indies respectively, without a single win. The defending champions' NRR of -2.550 sees them struggling right at the bottom.

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:35 PM IST

    Will West Indies regret leaving out Jason Holder?

    It was highly shocking when Jason Holder, one of West Indies' all-time greats, did not find a place in the team's squad for the T20 World Cup. But as fate would have it, he has been included in the 15 as an injury replacement for Obed McCoy. Coming off playing the IPL, Holder has picked up 10 wickets in Sharjah, which is a promising sign for WI ahead of their game against Bangladesh. Additionally, do not count out his value with the bat and that ability to deliver some lusty blows towards the end.

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:30 PM IST

    Time running out for Liton Das

    Barring his heated exchange in the game against Sri Lanka, Liton Das hasn't made much noise in the tournament so far. As a matter of fact, Das has been struggling for runs the entire year, scoring just 140 runs in 13 innings at a lowly average of 10.74. But at the same time, Das has two half-centuries against West Indies and today might be a good time to get a third, and then some.

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:25 PM IST

    What is ailing Nicholas Pooran?

    Believe it! Nicholas Pooran is being talked of highly in the West Indies cricketing circuit. Some even call him the next Chris Gayle. However, Pooran, in his entire career, has blown hot and cold. Having said that, Pooran has been West Indies' third highest run-getter this year in T20Is, with 286 runs from 15 innings. When it comes to Bangladesh, Pooran has tallied 66 runs in 3 innings and he would hope to build on it if West Indies are to hold on. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:20 PM IST

    WI vs BAN: Mustafizur lacking fizz for Bangladesh

    A lot was expected of left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman, but the Bangladesh seamer has so far failed to make any impact for his team whatsoever. Wicketless so far in the UAE, Mustafizur would look to regain his touch against West Indies, a team he has a decent record against with 13 wickets from six innings. He has dismissed Evin Lewis and Andre Russell twice, and boy, wouldn't this be a great time for the Fizz to produce a repeat of it. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:16 PM IST

    Can Lewis fire big today?

    Among West Indies batters, Evin Lewis has stood out. He scored a half-century against South Africa and looked in good nick before getting out. Against Bangladesh, Lewis has scored 111 runs from 5 innings including an 18-ball fifty the last time these two teams squared off. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:08 PM IST

    WI vs BAN, Live: Shakib looks to build on impressive show against Windies

    The leading wicket-taker at the T20 World Cups with 41 scalps, West Indies would be wary of the wily Bangladesh all-rounder. After all, Shakib boasts a fine record against them having picked up 19 wickets from 10 games. In fact, his best T20 bowling figures - 5/20 was in fact, against West Indies in 2018. Besides, with the bat, Shakib has scored 185 runs across the last five innings against WI. Pollard and his team, be worried. Be very worried.

  • Oct 29, 2021 02:05 PM IST

    Will Gayle open ahead of oddly out of form Simmons?

    With Lendl Simmons appearing oddly out of nick, before time runs out, West Indies could probably think of promoting Chris Gayle up the order. With an in-form Evin Lewis at the other end, Gayle opening promises to make for a formidable opening combination. With Lewis expected to go after the bowling, it can allow Gayle some breathing space up front before he can unleash his storm at Sharjah. 

  • Oct 29, 2021 01:58 PM IST

    West Indies vs Bangladesh: Head-to-Head battle

    West Indies and Bangladesh have locked horns 12 times in T20 cricket and the two-time T20 World Cup winners hold a slight 6-5 edge against the opposition. However, in the previous five matches, Bangladesh have won 3. Who will end the other's T20 World Cup campaign today? 

  • Oct 29, 2021 01:55 PM IST

    Windies look up to Holder to turn things around

    Former captain Jason Holder has been added to West Indies' T20 World Cup squad as a replacement for Obed McCoy. The left-arm seamer was ruled out of the tournament with an injury in his right leg during the England match paving the way for Holder's return. West Indies would hope that it isn't too late and that their star all-rounder can spur some sort of revival in fortunes.

    Where did Bangladesh lose the plot?

    After a brief stutter with a defeat to Scotland in the Qualifiers, Bangladesh breathed a sigh of relief once they made it to the Super 12s. But since, hardly anything has gone their way. Mahmudullah's team suffered a five-wicket-defeat to Sri Lanka and then endured a loss by 8 wickets to England. They are just a notch above West Indies in the Group 1 points table and need something special to lift themselves out of this hole.

    West Indies in their previous two games: Lost, Lost

    Defending champions West Indies were backed by many to go all the way, but a loss to England by 6 wickets did not prove to be the greatest starts. The batting crumbled and the team was all out for 55, the lowest total by a Test-playing nation at the T20 World Cup. They tried to regroup against South Africa but to no avail as the Proteas chased down 144 in 18.2 overs to take the game by 8 wickets.

    West Indies vs Bangladesh Live Score, T20 World Cup

    Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the West Indies vs Bangladesh Super 12 match at the T20 World Cup. It's the kind of situation neither team would have wished for, this early in the tournament. Following back-to-back defeats, today will mark the end of one team's campaign in the T20 WC. Kieron Pollard's West Indies are the defending champions but five years after they lifted the title in India, they now stare at the bottom of the barrel. As for Bangladesh, there hasn't been much to be happy about since qualifying for the Round of 12. With England, Australia and South Africa winning, Bangladesh have been pushed to a corner, and to come out of it, they will need to muster all the courage and determination if they are to down the buoyant Windies.
