The 3rd ODI of Bangladesh Tour of West Indies 2022 will be held between West Indies and Bangladesh on 16 July 2022 at Providence Stadium, Guyana.
West Indies (WI) and Bangladesh (BAN) meet in the third ODI on Saturday 16 July. This is the final game of their three-game streak, with Bangladesh sealing the streak 2-0.
The Tigers rehabilitated after disappointing earlier on the tour. They recorded a six-wicket win in the first ODI and backed that up with a nine-wicket win in the next.
With their win on Wednesday, they also took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. Their bowlers were impressive once again as they bowled the West Indies for just 108 in 35 overs. Mehidy Hasan picked up four wickets while Nasum Ahmed picked up three. The guests prepared the game again with a brilliant ball control.
Their batsmen then made easy work of the comeback to finish the game in just 20.4 overs, with captain Tamim Iqbal scoring an unbeaten fifty to lead from the front. In doing so, Bangladesh once again proved they are a far better unit in the ODI format and recorded an all-out victory.
Meanwhile, after dominating Tests and T20Is, things have gone wrong for the West Indies in the one-day series. They failed to break the 150 mark for the second time. Their performance in the second game was worse compared to the first.
West Indies meets Bangladesh on Saturday in the 3rd and final ODI of the series. Another miserable batting performance cost the West Indies hugely as they lost the 2nd ODI by 9 wickets and also dropped the series. They were sent at-bat first on a difficult surface, crumbled for just 108 runs in 35 overs. Keemo Paul was the top scorer with 25* unbeaten runs. It’s a matter of pride for the hosts to win the 3rd ODI to avoid whitewashing. Skipper Nicholas Pooran has to make a mark ahead of time as he just managed to score 18 runs in the series.
After losing the previous Test and T20I series on this tour, Bangladesh put up inspiring performances to win the ODI series with one game remaining. They beat West Indies by 9 wickets in the 2nd ODI to take a 2-0 lead. Spinners Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Nasum Ahmed steal the show again and later Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das handle the formalities for the visitors. They don’t want to be satisfied with that and are aiming for a 3-0 win.
Bangladesh are expected to make some changes and give chances to players on the bench. On the other hand, West Indies can play this game with almost the same team.
Because of the space at this venue, spinners can put the best pressure on batters and are the deadliest choice for taking wickets. On a challenging surface, both teams will find it difficult to chase around 225 in total.
Providence Stadium, Guyana, is forecast to be around 33°C with a humidity of 60% and wind speeds of 19-22 km/h.

Tamim Iqbal has shown a lot of maturity with the racquet so far this series, hitting 83 runs in 2 matches with a best score of 50*. He is expected to continue his good form in this match.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz wreaks havoc on the West Indies batters with his spider web. In 2 games of this series he has sacked 7 wickets on an economy of 3.82 with best numbers of 4 for 29.
Nasum Ahmed is the most frugal bowler in this series so far. In 2 games he has scalped 3 wickets with an impressive economy of 1.94.
Shai Hope hasn’t had the best of the series so far, as he only hit 18 runs in 2 innings. He’s still a good buy for your fantasy teams given his experience and wicket-keeping skills.
Najmul Hossain Shanto shows pure class in the early stages of his career. He has yet to score half a century in ODIs. Overall, he added 150 runs in 10 games with the highest score of 37.
