    Bangladesh tour of the West Indies 2018

    August will be a special month for WINDIES and Bangladesh fans in the United States.

    Reigning ICC World Twenty20 champions WINDIES will face Bangladesh in two T20 Internationals under the lights at the Central Broward Regional Park (CBRP), Fort Lauderdale, as part of its Tour of the West Indies later this year.

    The announcement of the Bangladesh Tour of West Indies which comprises two Tests, three One-day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals between June 24 and August 5 forms part of a packed International Home Season for WINDIES that also includes a tour by Sri Lanka.

    “We are delighted to include the matches Fort Lauderdale on the schedule for the Bangladesh Tour,” said CWI Chief Executive Officer, Johnny Grave. The CEO added that “both matches are scheduled for the weekend and will be played under the lights, so it’s a great opportunity for WINDIES fans in North America to see the team play against a very competitive Bangladesh side.”

    WINDIES have previously played four T20Is at the CBRP – the last two against India two years ago – and have won three, with the other ending in a no-result, due to weather interruptions.

    With up to 10 million Caribbean immigrants and members of the Caribbean diaspora living in the United States alone, Grave said the matches at the CBRP present a wonderful opportunity to further establish the WINDIES brand in North America.

    “This is one of the initiatives outlined in our new Strategic Plan for the period 2018 to 2023,” said Grave.

    “Our intention is to work with ICC Americas members, USA Cricket & Cricket Canada in partnership to establish cricket as a popular sport from North to South America, create opportunities for West Indian fans to watch the team live, and build support for the WINDIES.”

    Grave noted: “through this initiative, it will support our strategic objectives to increase the number of people who watch and follow WINDIES cricket, and help unlock the full potential of the WINDIES outside of the Caribbean. We look forward to having West Indians, Bangladeshis and fans of the game from all around the United States coming to join us at the CBRP for the two matches.”

    This is Bangladesh’s fourth bilateral Tour of the West Indies, where they have won two of eight Tests, and the Tigers have also played 10 ODIs in the Caribbean, losing seven. They have never won a T20I in the region.

    The Bangladesh tour immediately follows a three-Test series against Sri Lanka which includes the first ever day/night Test in the Caribbean when the final match of the Series is contested in Barbados.

    “We have successfully staged day/night, first-class matches over the last few seasons in the Regional 4-Day Tournament and we are thrilled to now be hosting the first day/night Test ever in the Caribbean, as a way to offer our fans a different experience and a chance to be part of the game,” said Grave.

    “It could not have been played in a better venue than the iconic Kensington Oval and it will be an extra special occasion, as the match starts on the 90th anniversary of the first ever Test in the Caribbean which was also played there.”

    “We know Barbadians are renowned for their love of the game and we hope that they will come out in their numbers and pack the stands, but we also urge WINDIES fans from around the region and, indeed, the World to come and make this a truly special occasion.”

    Tickets for matches in the Sri Lanka and Bangladesh series will go on sale at the end of May.

    WI in west Indies are not the easiest team to beat. England drew with them, we barely won, sri Lanka is losing as of now, they troubled the Indian team at times. They have potential. Bangladesh is about to get a beating.

    WI team is inconsistent. There is not a huge difference in the capabilities of the two team tbh. Bangladesh have some solid players in the line up (only if they can keep their heads down and focus on the game like mature men, rather than engaging in the silly cobra dance)

    This the the ABSOLUTE worst garbage side Bangladesh has picked since I started following cricket in 2003. The current selection panel has made horrific picks for the past 2 years now.

    Any domestic pacer would be better than Rubel. Heck Khaled Ahmed would be better. But Ebadat Hussain and Yasin Arafat Mishu are the two most promising domestic seamers and neither of them made the squad.

    Rabbi is a carbon copy of Rubel.

    Mosaddek Hossain ought to have been there in place of deadweight Mahmudullah. Guy has a FC average of 68 and can’t find a place on the team. Lol.

    Nurul Hasan is the best WK in the country so good pick but that makes 3 keepers in the squad.

    Imrul Kayes also needs to be replaced.

    The bowling is shambolic and just asking to be raped.

    Ban selectors are quite clueless. They pick Mosaddek in T20s where he isn't perfectly suited. On the contrary, they leave him out of the test side where he is best suited and when he has a FC batting average of 69.

    Aren't there any better pacer than Kamrul Islam Rabbi ? He has a FC bowling average of 42. Why is the Fizz in the standby ? Is he injured or what ?

    Holder and his team are within reach to an improved Test-ranking if they can beat Bangladesh, starting July 4 in Antigua.

    Holder along with teammates, Shane Dowrich and Shannon Gabriel all had upward movement in Test-Player rankings since the series against Sri Lanka. Holder is now 54th in batting and is 6th in the all-rounder’ list and a career-best 25th among bowlers, Dowrich is 51st among the batsmen and Gabriel is now at 12th place following his man-of-the-match 13 for 121, giving the 3rd best haul ever by a West Indies bowler.

    The chance to move from 9th place is possible if the WINDIES win a match in the series. Here are some scenarios:

    Drawn series – Bangladesh 75, Windies 72
    Windies win 1-0 – Windies 75, Bangladesh 69
    Windies win 2-0 – Windies 77, Bangladesh 67

    The 13-man squad to face Bangladesh for the Two Tests reads:

    Jason Holder – Captain
    Devendra Bishoo
    Kraigg Brathwaite
    Roston Chase
    Miguel Cummins
    Shane Dowrich
    Shannon Gabriel
    Shimron Hetmyer
    Shai Hope
    Keemo Paul
    Kieran Powell
    Kemar Roach
    Devon Smith

    The Selection Panel “expects to see a greater effort from the top 5 batters and see them return to the focus and discipline we know they are capable of in the upcoming series against Bangladesh. After some very competitive cricket against ICC 6th ranked Sri Lanka that ended in a one all draw. We congratulate the team on a drawn series but recognized that victory was within our reach. The Selection panel also acknowledge and commend the strong performances of captain Jason Holder, Shannon Gabriel and man of the series Shane Dowrich.

    A Windies high, a Bangladesh low

    As Bangladesh plunged to their lowest-ever score in Test cricket we look at the records broken in the opening day in Antigua.

    18.4 overs – this was all the Windies took on the opening day of the first Test in North Sound on Wednesday, 4 July, to demolish Bangladesh. A fiery spell of fast bowling by Kemar Roach (5/8), Miguel Cummins (3/11) and Jason Holder (2/10) orchestrated a spectacular collapse as the visitors were bowled out for 43 inside the first session.

    Tenth-lowest total in Test history

    This is Bangladesh's lowest-ever score in Test cricket, eclipsing the 62 they made against Sri Lanka in 2007. This is also the lowest score in Test cricket in the last 44 years. India were bowled out for 42 against England in 1974.

    It is is the tenth-lowest total of all time, the least that the Windies have bowled an opposition out for, and also the lowest in the Caribbean.


    Kemar Roach creates a splash.

    Roach returned magical figures of 5/8 in five overs. He picked up all five wickets in 12 deliveries. Only Monty Noble and Jacques Kallis have taken as few balls for a five-wicket haul. Roach might have added to his tally if not for a knee injury he picked up during his spell.

    Windies make quick work

    Bangladesh's first innings lasted just 18.4 overs, that is 112 deliveries, making it the second-shortest first innings of a Test. The record still belongs to Australia who were dismissed in 18.3 overs or 111 deliveries, against England in Nottingham in 2015, when Stuart Broad returned 8/15. Bangladesh's was also the eighth-shortest completed innings in all Tests.

    Liton Das, the lone warrior

    None of the Bangladesh players could even manage double-digit scores, barring Liton Das, who waged a lone battle scoring 25. He accounted for 58% of the total score – a record for the visitors in Tests. The second-highest score in Bangladesh's batting chart was 6 by Rubel Hossain.

    Bangladesh were bowled out for their lowest-ever total of 43 and lost the first Test in Antigua by an innings and 219 runs inside three days.

    Captain Shakib Al Hasan conceded that his team were defeated in all three departments and that they need to be mentally prepared ahead of the second Test after the thrashing at the hands of hosts Windies.

    “We were beaten in all three departments,” Hasan said after the loss. “There are a lot of areas we need to work on in the next five days. It is very tough adapting to these conditions and we're not used to this. We need to mentally prepare ourselves in the next five days and be ready.”

    The visitors fared better the second time around than they did in their first essay, where they were bowled out for their lowest-ever Test total of 43. However, they could still only get 144 in reply to the Windies’ 406 and lost the game inside three days.

    Shannon Gabriel picked up five wickets in the second innings Shannon Gabriel picked up five wickets in the second innings
    “It was very tough and we knew it was going to tough. We have to work on areas in the next five days and pick ourselves,” Hasan said.

    Hasan’s counterpart Jason Holder was happy to have started the series well and credited his bowlers for the victory. “We should have won against Sri Lanka too, a series to be won. Credit to the bowlers though,” he said.

    Kemar Roach, the Player of the Match, picked up five wickets in the first innings while his fast-bowling partner Shannon Gabriel took five in the second. Holder himself got five wickets in the match as did Miguel Cummins.

    “Kemar bowled well with the support of others. We enjoyed the pressure,” Holder said. “This has set the tone for the next game. All of our bowlers have got pretty tough work load. Hopefully, we'll try and keep winning.”

    Roach conceded that he remains confident every time he plays against Bangladesh. “I have played a couple of times against them before and done well,” he said.

    “Also, playing at home helps. The pitches have helped me a lot. There is a bit of movement and bounce in the pitch. As a fast bowler you got to be licking your lips.

    “A lot of things manifested. Shannon has been fantastic and so have been Holder and Cummins. As a whole bowling unit we have clicked.”

    The second and final Test of the series begins on 12 July in Jamaica.

    Antigua was reminiscent of the "bad old days" for Bangladesh. Infact that may be harsh on that early to mid 2000s Test team as there was zero fight or courage shown.

    Steve Rhodes has a huge job on his hands to lift this team who need a massive improvement just to even draw the next Test.

    For West Indies - more of the same. Need to start making their home a fortress and close out a rare Test series win.

    KINGSTON, Jamaica – Young fast bowler, Alzarri Joseph is in the 13-man Test Squad to face Bangladesh in the 2nd Test to start at Sabina Park this Thursday.

    Joseph on his return to international cricket was the most successful bowler for the President’s XI side vs Bangladesh with 4 for 53 from 15 overs just under two weeks ago.

    Absent from the squad is Kemar Roach who has been ordered to rest following a hamstring strain in the first innings of the Test in Antigua that the WINDIES won by an inning and 219 runs.

    The squad reads:

    Jason Holder – Captain
    Devendra Bishoo
    Kraigg Brathwaite
    Roston Chase
    Miguel Cummins
    Shane Dowrich
    Shannon Gabriel
    Shimron Hetmyer
    Alzarri Joseph
    Shai Hope
    Keemo Paul
    Kieran Powell
    Devon Smith

    The win in the first Test, saw some positive movements in the ICC rankings for several players. Roach, 20th and Brathwaite, 16th are now in the Top 20 in bowling and batting respectively; while Captain Holder moves up two places to 52nd and to 23rd in the bowling. Other players to be tagged in the ranking are Powell up five places to 61st and Cummins, up 12 places to 55th.

    Here are the scenarios for the WINDIES based on results in this two-match Test Series, which could see the team move up from the current 9th-placed Test ranking:

    Drawn series – Bangladesh 75; WINDIES 72
    WINDIES win 1-0 – WINDIES 75, Bangladesh 69
    WINDIES win 2-0 – WINDIES 77, Bangladesh 67


    [QUOTE=Mamoon;9742871]Don't see us ascending from 7th/6th in the near future. 5-0 in England and South Africa awaits us, we will be lucky to even draw one match. [/QUOTE]

    Bangladesh look to bounce back after double-collapse

    Bangladesh knew things were going to be tough in the Caribbean with the pace and bounce on offer, but they weren’t prepared for the margin of defeat they suffered in the first Test.

    Everything that could possibly go wrong for the visitors did. They were sent in on a spicy deck and fell like a deck of cards for just 43 in 18.4 overs in the face of some fiery pace bowling led by Kemar Roach. It was their lowest score in Test cricket and the lowest overall in the last 44 years.

    Things did not go to plan in their second innings either, after the Windies had piled on 406 led by Kraigg Brathwaite's eighth Test century. Bangladesh slipped to 63/7 before a counter-punching half-century from Nurul Hasan ensured the visitors did not fall for a second successive sub-100 total. They still lost big, with the Windies taking all of 354 deliveries to knock off Bangladesh and take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

    Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh captain, admitted his side will have to be “mentally prepared” to fight the Windies fire with their own fire. But that’s easier said than done.

    For starters, the visitors have to devise a strategy to play out Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Miguel Cummins and Jason Holder, who shared the 20 Bangladesh wickets among them in the first Test.

    The senior pros in the squad – Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah and Shakib – will have to bring all their experience into play to guide the young Bangladesh side to safe shores. They will have to shoulder bulk of the responsibility with youngsters like Liton Das and Mominul Haque batting around them. The visitors might also be tempted to draft in Imrul Kayes for the final Test taking into account his experience.

    The Windies will be confident of making it 2-0 after the innings-and-219-run win in the first Test in North Sound, where the Bangladesh batting just couldn’t rise to the challenge.

    The pace attack is a bit of a concern for the visitors as well, with Rubel Hossain, Kamrul Islam and Abu Jayed not looking as penetrative as their Windies counterparts. Jayed, in his first Test, looked promising though, getting the ball to reverse at pace.

    The Windies, on the other hand, are in a comfortable space. They recorded their biggest-ever Test defeat on home soil and did so with relative ease. A win in the second Test will not just hand them the series, but help them pip Bangladesh to the No.8 spot on the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings.

    They did most things right in the opening outing. If it was Roach in the first innings that broke Bangladesh's back, Gabriel produced a masterclass in the second to pick up five wickets. Cummins and Holder also did their job well, backing up the frontline pacers.

    The batting department also came to the fore with Keiron Powell, Shai Hope and Devon Smith all giving Brathwaite ample support.

    Key players

    Shannon Gabriel (Windies): The speedster has been in top form over the past few months and can be expected to again come out all guns blazing come the second Test. Gabriel has been Holder's go-to man in recent times and the big pacer has not disappointed whenever given the chance.

    Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh): The Bangladesh captain has a huge task in getting his players back on track after such a heavy defeat in the opening Test. For that to happen, he will have to lead from the front, something that he has done quite effectively with both bat and ball in the past.

    Conditions

    The surface at Sabina Park has slowed down over the years but it still has enough pace and bounce to cause batters a problem or two. The last Test played here was in August 2017, when the hosts lost to Pakistan by seven wickets. The forecast is that rain will make an appearance on all days of the Test, but there should still be enough time to have a full game.

    Squads:

    Paceman Shafiul Islam has sustained a right ankle injury while fielding at practice on Tuesday and has been ruled out of the 2nd Test match against the West Indies which starts at Sabina Park today.

    An X-ray has revealed no bone injury. National Team Physio Thihan Chandramohan said the current diagnosis was a Grade 2 lateral ligament sprain with medial bone bruising: “He is unavailable for selection for the 2nd Test and will likely be unavailable for three to six weeks depending on further assessment. He will remain with team and travel home after the match. We expect the acute swelling to reduce by that time.”

    WINDIES TO START ITS 16-ODIs TREK TO 2019 CRICKET WORLD CUP

    ST JOHN’S, Antigua – WINDIES, still on a high from its 2-0 Test series win will turn its attention on the remaining 3-ODIs and 3-T20Is in the match-up against Bangladesh.

    With less than a year before the 2019 Cricket World Cup (May 30 to July 14) Head Coach, Stuart Law has his eyes fixed on gaining momentum heading towards the tournament. But before that Coach is clear on the team’s mandate. “This is the start of our prep for 2019 CWC. Opportunities for players to stake a claim to be included in the squad. Great to have Dre Russ back as well. His explosive power and energy will breathe life into an already motivated squad.”

    Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne notes “As we continue to prepare, there are only 16 ODIs leading up to the tournament. The panel will focus on giving opportunities from time to time to players that we believe can add value to the ODI team. Kemar Roach will be rested for the upcoming series as we continue to manage players’ work load. With the Super50 Championship set for October this year, we will also have an opportunity for regional players to perform heavily and place themselves in line to be considered for selection. The panel wishes Jason and his team every success in the upcoming series against Bangladesh.”

    The 1st ODI is set for Guyana on Sunday, July 22 at 9:30 am – tickets are already on sale.

    The 13-man squad reads:

    Jason Holder – Captain
    Devendra Bishoo
    Chris Gayle
    Shimron Hetmyer
    Shai Hope
    Alzarri Joseph
    Evin Lewis
    Jason Mohammed
    Ashley Nurse
    Keemo Paul
    Kieran Powell
    Rovman Powell
    Andre Russell

    Sheldon Cottrell has been named as Russell’s replacement for the last ODI on Saturday in St. Kitts.

    The 3-match T20 series will start in St. Kitts on July 31, with the last two matches being played at Central Broward Regional Park in Florida on August 4 and 5.

    Don't think they will make any major changes to the 3rd ODI line-up will WI. Potentially swap Gayle or Jason Mohammad for Kieran in the line-up.

    ST JOHN’S, ANTIGUA – WINDIES will now turn its attention to the three T20Is remaining on the Bangladesh tour of the region with one match in St Kitts and the other two in Florida, starting tomorrow at 8pm.

    The Selection Panel has assembled a 13-man squad to face the visitors. The squad reads:

    Carlos Brathwaite – Captain
    Samuel Badree
    Sheldon Cottrell
    Andre Fletcher
    Evin Lewis
    Ashley Nurse
    Keemo Paul
    Rovman Powell
    Denesh Ramdin
    Andre Russell
    Marlon Samuels
    Chadwick Walton
    Kesrick Williams


    Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne, says “we have rested Chris Gayle and have added left-arm pacer, Sheldon Cottrell for variety to the bowling attack. The team reflects the last squad that performed well in the charity match in the UK.”

    Going forward, the panel thinks the talent pool for the T20 version is widening and acknowledges “the strong performances of the young players in the WINDIES B team during the T20 series in the Canada's Global T20 League and this augurs well for our T20 game.”

    Head Coach, Stuart Law has not hidden his disappointment in the 1-2 loss in the ODI but is “optimistic that the players are beginning to understand the direction they need to go. The players are gradually working harder and we expect the results to turn in our favor.”

    Bangladesh fast bowler Abu Hider has been fined 20 per cent of his match fee for using inappropriate language during his side’s second T20I against the West Indies at Lauderhill on Saturday.
    Abu Hider was found to have breached Article 2.1.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to “using language or a gesture that is obscene, offensive or insulting during an International Match”.

    In addition to the fine, one demerit point has been added to the 22-year-old’s disciplinary record.

    The incident happened in the 14th over of the Windies’ run-chase when Abu Hider ignored an earlier warning by the on-field umpires by again using inappropriate language after Rovman Powell had hit him for a six.

    After the end of the match, Abu Hider admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by Chris Broad of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees and, as such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

    The charge was levelled by on-field umpires Leslie Reifer and Joel Wilson, third umpire Gregory Brathwaite, as well as fourth umpire Nigel Duguid.

    Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player’s match fee, and one or two demerit points.

    Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal move up in rankings after T20I series win

    Windies players go down after 2-1 series reversal, with Evin Lewis dropping out of the top 10 for batsmen.

    They won the first Twenty20 International quite comfortably, but the world champions faltered in the face of the big Bangladesh totals in the second and third games to concede the series.

    That meant slips in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings for their men, and gains for the visiting players who helped script the triumph.

    For the Bangladeshis, Shakib Al Hasan (103 runs) and Tamim Iqbal (95 runs) were the main batting heroes, and they moved up eight spots to No.45 and six places to No.39 respectively on the table for batsmen.

    Neither of them got big runs in the final game – though they did make key contributions – but Liton Das, the opening batsman, certainly did. He slammed a 32-ball 61 to set up Bangladesh’s win by 19 runs (DLS method) in the decider, and saw a jump of 22 spots on the table to 71st place. It also gave Das 351 rating points, the best in his career so far.

    Mahmudullah, who didn’t go on to get a big score but hit quick scores of 35, 13* and 32* in the three games, also moved up, by three places to No.36, joint with Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed.

    Even as the main Bangladesh batsmen moved up, Lewis, the Windies’ top-ranked T20I batsman, slipped. Lewis, who had a poor one-day international series – 17, 12 and 13 – was done in by the guile of Mustafizur Rahman in both the T20Is he played, and went down from No.7 to No.11, where he is joint with India captain Virat Kohli on 671 points.

    Andre Russell, meanwhile, did well with bat and ball, and that was reflected in the rankings.

    Scores of 35* – a match-winning effort – 17 and 47 helped him gain 26 spots to 86th place with a career-high 279 points, and his two wickets earned him a jump of five places to No.84 in the bowlers’ list.

    The big gainers among the bowlers were Windies off-spinner Ashley Nurse, whose four wickets in the series took him up to the 91st place (up by 21 spots), and Bangladesh left-arm spinner Nazmul Islam, whose 3/28 in the second game helped him move up 14 spots to No.70.
