BD to face Windies in series decider today

  • Print
UNB, Dhaka  :
The third and final ODI of three-match series between Bangladesh and West Indies turned into a final as the first two matches won by each team.
The 'final' will be played today at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium which is all set to be the first ODI in the venue. The match will commence at 12.00 noon and will be telecasted on Bangladesh Television (BTV) and Gazi Television (GTV).
After losing the second match in Dhaka by four
 wickets, Bangladesh will face several challenges in the third one. They have played four recognised openers in the first two matches of the series that did not prove to be a wise move.
Shakib Al Hasan was playing well at number three which is believed to be a crucial position to bat on. But, for ensuring places for four openers he has been batting at number five since the start of ongoing series. Despite a fifty at the position, Shakib's move made the number three position vulnerable.
Imrul Kayes, however, failed to impress at number three in spite of his golden run in the last home series against Zimbabwe where he finished with two centuries in three matches with 90 in the other match. But after being moved from his desired opening position, Imrul has been struggling. At the same time, Bangladesh's move to play four openers did not reflect their attention for the World Cup preparation which is not too far.
