WEST INDIES TOUR OF BANGLADESH 2018 Schedule and Betting Tips
The test series will be a fight of patience and spin vs pace bowling. Bangladesh is likely to attack after mustering the best spin bowlers that they can, while West Indies would like to try dominating over Bangladesh with their pace bowling like they did earlier this year in West Indies. Mushfiq is in great shape, scoring a double century less than 15 days ago (only wicketkeeper to score double centuries twice in history), so are his teammates Mominul and Mahmudullah. However, they should have a hard time defending the likes of the pace attack of West Indies. Bangladesh won very easily the last test match they played just over a week ago- for West Indies, their last test match was a nightmare. Expect a fierce fight.
The Bangladeshis are a very strong team at home, especially in ODIs. Don’t be surprised if West Indies gets whitewashed in this format, Bangladesh have a good track record of doing that. The other way around might happen too! But in the subcontinent, West Indies tend to be a very messed up team. Regardless, they have won an ODI and tied one match the last couple of months against the mighty India, so do not underestimate them.
The T20Is will be a blast to see, they are more fun to watch, but harder to predict too. West Indies are definitely stronger in this format and will look forward to defeating Bangladesh who have been historically extremely weak in T20Is, they lost to Afghanistan a few months ago.
1st Test at Chattogram, 22nd - 26th November 2018 (Thursday to Monday)
2nd Test at Dhaka, 30th November 2018 to 4th December 2018 (Friday to Tuesday)
Test series are often boring as sensed by the generalized consensus. But if you like the drama of test series, teams focusing upon each ball and looking for the line and length at which it curves, the beauty at which a batsman bats or a bowler bowls- do tune in to the 2nd Test Match. It is likely to be extremely competitive.
1st ODI (D/N) at Dhaka, 9th December 2018 (Sunday)
2nd ODI (D/N) at Dhaka, 11th December 2018 (Tuesday)
3rd ODI (D/N) at Sylhet, 14th December 2018 (Friday)
The ODIs should be even more competitive. On pen and paper, Bangladesh is the better team depicted even by the ICC ODI rankings. They won the last ODI series in West Indies with a 2-1. Bangladesh should be on top, but do not underestimate the Windies too. Lookout for the 3rd ODI- it is either going to be a thrilling match to clinch the series win, or you will have fun watching a team trying hard not to get wasted.
1st T20I (D/N) at Sylhet, 17th December 2018 (Monday)
2nd T20I (D/N) at Dhaka, 20th December 2018 (Thursday)
3rd T20I (D/N) at Dhaka, 22nd December 2018 (Saturday)
T20Is are generally harder to predict. West Indies have a fearful amazing pool of cricketers to choose from and Bangladesh have been historically most weak in this format. This is supposed to be the most fun and nerve-wracking format, so do indeed tune up your channel and do not miss these matches.
Cricket Betting - WEST INDIES TOUR OF BANGLADESH, 2018
Count on West Indies to win the Test Match series. Their lineup is wholesome, and Bangladesh have been bad in this format the recent past. Expect the pace bowling attack even on the spin friendly pitch of Dhaka and Sylhet to be owned by the likes of Keemo Paul and Keemar Roach, especially against a Bangladeshi batting lineup which looks weak especially due to its opening pair without Tamim Iqbal, who is out of the test matches because of an injury.
The ODIs should be won by the Bangladeshis. Tamim Iqbal is expected to be back on the team by then, and with his experience and stellar form in his belt- expect some balls being sent off out of the stadium.
The T20Is betting prediction - although West Indies should win the series based on the amazing line up that they have, Bangladesh is always dangerous in their home ground and might end up winning a few matches.
