Bangladesh face West Indies in the first T20I in Dominica on July 2 after losing the two-match Test series. Both sides play three T20Is and as many ODIs in the white-ball leg of the tour. The Tigers are heading into this series after losing the Tets series 0-2.

Bangladesh are languishing at the eighth position in the ICC T20I rankings while the WIndies are on seventh. Both sides need to move up the table and thus this T20Iseries is of immense importance. Nicholas Pooran will lead the Windies while Mahmudullah will lead Bangladesh.

West Indies played a T20I series against the Netherlands ahead of this T20I series. Bangladesh, on the other hand, played their last T20I series against Afghanistan in March which they drew 1-1. Bangladesh and West Indies both are going through a transitional phase, especially in the T20 format. However, the hosts look the more settled unit with Pooran captaining the side.

There have been too many chopping and changing in the Bangladesh side in terms of captaincy. Tamim Iqbal gave up on T20I captaincy after which Mahmudullah was entrusted with the job and this is his big test. Meanwhile, Shakib Al Hasan will skip the ODI series as it is not a part of the ICC Super League as per reports.
