Tri-series final: Probable squads of Bangladesh and Windies

Bolstered by their ruthless performance, Bangladesh are determined to come all guns blazing to win the trophy of Tri-series.

Bangladesh are fairly confident of clinching the title going by the form book. Team Tigers beat West Indies both home and away last year in the same format and have handed out defeats in the two games they have played in this series as well.

The match is going to starts at 3:45 PM Bangladesh Standard Time.

Due to a suspected side strain, Bangladesh superstar Shakib Al Hasan is now under observation for 24 hours. It is not sure if Shakib will accompany the team or not in the final match against West Indies. Though, captain Mashrafe Mortaza is confident of win and said Team Tigers have experience of winning big matches without Shakib.

 

Bangladesh (probable):

1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Soumya Sarkar, 3 Liton Das/Shakib Al Hasan, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 5 Mohammad Mithun, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Sabbir Rahman, 8 Mohamad Saifuddin, 9 Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 10 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 11 Mustafizur Rahman

If Tigers team management is thinking of a playing XI without Shakib - a decision on him will be taken before the match- there needs at least two adjustments. Team Tigers would need a No 3, for which perhaps Liton Das may be the temporary answer. Soumya Sarkar and Sabbir Rahman may have to bowl more as Mahmudullah has a shoulder injury. Abu Jayed's five-wicket haul also poses a different kind of selection headache for the team management.

 

West Indies:

1 Sunil Ambris, 2 Shai Hope (wk), 3 Darren Bravo, 4 Roston Chase, 5 Jonathan Carter, 6 Jason Holder (capt), 7 Fabian Allen, 8 Ashley Nurse, 9 Kemar Roach, 10 Sheldon Cottrell, 11 Shannon Gabriel

A back injury has kept John Campbell away from the action since his 179 against Ireland in the series opener. West Indies are likely to bring back Shannon Gabriel in place of Raymon Reifer.
