All to play for in the final ODI as Windies clinch a nail-biter on Wednesday by beating Bangladesh by 3 runs. Jason Holder bowled the last over in which 8 were needed and the over went for just 4. The skipper bowled some great line in the last over, also the wicket of Rahim on the first ball was the turning point of the game. We are here with the prediction of the 3rd ODI which is a decider:
Batting maestros – You can expect fireworks in almost every game when the likes of Gayle, Lewis, Hope, Hetmyer are in the squad. The final ODI would be crucial for the batsmen as they have to score big to keep the opposition on the backfoot. Windies’ players are capable in doing that.
Confident after a stellar show – They have achieved a tremendous victory in the 2nd ODI and the confidence of the team would be on another level. Holder & Co. are looking to to clinch the 3rd game and series with the same kind of effort they put so far.
Slow starters – Windies, being a settled batting side, are struggling to score in the initial overs. The likes of Gayle and Lewis are known to score at a decent pace but so far the fans haven’t seen the same. If Windies have to win the match, they need to score big at any cost.
Top-order in top form – Tamim Iqbal is in amazing form and so as Shakib Al Hasan at No. 3. Just one more time they both need to fire to win this series in West Indies. It would be a memorable series for them if they can perform well for the last time.
Mortaza looking great – Mortaza picked up 4 wickets in the first ODI which was a sigh of relief for himself and for the team as well. He is leading the side well once again and his contribution in the 3rd ODI would be crucial for Bangladesh. Can he perform with the new ball?
Inability to finish things – The 2nd ODI victory was just an inch away when Rahim was batting but he did a same mistake like 2016 World T20 game against India. In the end, the team once again lost the match. He must be unhappy with himself and would like to correct this mistake.
