We are almost midway in the ongoing Cricket World Cup, and things are just about beginning to take shape beautifully. Today Bangladesh will lock horns with West Indies in Taunton on Monday. Both teams have so far bagged three points each, and a win in this match will boost their chances of making it to the final four. After suffering two defeats in their last three fixtures, both West Indies and Bangladesh will aim to return back to winning ways when they face each other in their crucial World Cup tie.
Both teams announced themselves at the ongoing tournament with convincing victories, but have failed to build on to that success. Having one of the most attacking batting line-ups, Windies have reaped the results of their poor shot selection from the likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell and others. As a result, they are placed at the sixth spot with three points from four games. On the other hand, Bangladesh's success has revolved around Shakib al Hasan. The number one ODI all-rounder has not only performed with the bat and has been the backbone of Bangladesh batting.
