Bangladesh eye a series win as they gear up to face West Indies in the second ODI in Guyana on July 13. The Tigers won the first ODI and are leading the three-match series 1-0. However, despite their win in the first ODI, they have concerns to address and sort out ahead of the second game.
In recent times, they have lost more matches than they have won across formats. They also have had different captains for different forms. Tamim Iqbal is leading the side in the ODI format and he spoke about bringing a winning habit within the team in the longest format.
“We definitely tried our best (in Tests and T20Is) but it is also true that we could not play our best cricket. My message will be that in the ODIs we have to try our best and no matter what I say we have to bring our A game to the field and that is the most important thing. I don’t think I have to go and inspire everyone individually because they all are playing for the country and nothing I can be more motivating than this saying that if I have to talk individually (to motivate someone) that I will definitely do,” he said ahead of the first ODI.
Meanwhile, in this article, we take a look at Bangladesh’s probable playing XI for the second ODI. Given that they won the first ODI, they should back the same XI to play the second and secure a series win first before trying out combinations.
