Bangladesh tour of West Indies 2018, Third T20I, West Indies vs Bangladesh
Monday, August 06, 2018, Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida
The three match series is currently level 1-1 with one match remaining. West Indies won the first match in St Kitts while Bangladesh made a comeback to win the second T20I in Florida. Bangladesh are looking confident ahead of the series decider as they are fresh from a convincing win in the second T20I at the same venue on Sunday.
On the other hand, hosts West Indies are certainly under pressure losing the second T20I with a failed performance with the bat. They failed to chase down a par target by just 12 runs in the second game and they now do not have enough time to think about it with the third T20I to be played in less than 24 hours.
In the second T20I, Experienced players Tamim Iqbal and Shakib al Hasan stepped up for the visitors with a brilliant partnership for the fourth wicket after losing first three wickets very cheaply. Bangladesh would expect their seniors to take more responsibility to beat a top T20 side like West Indies and complete the series victory.
With the third T20I being played at Florida (the same venue at which second T20I was played), Bangladesh would like to fancy their chances to push for a series victory. Soumya Sarkar failed with the bat in both the games and the visitors would likely replace him for the series decider on Monday.
