Toss time, folks
Bangladesh have won the toss and opted to bat first
Around four years ago, Windies whitewashed Bangladesh 3-0 in the ODI series played at home. However, since then, they have had to wade through 10 consecutive bilateral ODI rubbers without a series victory. So the home side will aim to end their barren run when they lock horns versus Bangladesh at Warner Park in the final ODI. Intriguingly, the Windies aren’t just playing the same opponent (Bangladesh), but the ground too happens to be the same venue – Warner Park, Basseterre.
In the second game played in Guyana, Bangladesh fell at the last hurdle. losing by just three runs. It was a match that they looked set to win, with just 13 required off the final two overs. Unfortunately from the perspective, Rahim and Sabbir were dismissed via full tosses. Holder, the Windies captain, then took over by bowling a brilliant last over to ensure a thrilling win and level the series 1-1. The Windies camp also would be delighted with the form of Hetmyer, who cracked a superb 125 in the second match.
Can Bangladesh put their heart-wrenching loss behind them and get back to winnings ways? Or will Holder and co. finally taste a series win in the 50-over format? You can catch all the live updates, here.
