Tamim Iqbal led his side to yet another victory against Windies in the 2nd T20I at Florida. The series is now well-settled at 1-1 with the 3rd T20 to be played at the same venue. Here’s the prediction of this match:
Well-versed with the conditions – Windies are aware about the conditions of Florida. They won the first T20 by D/L method but were unlucky in the 2nd match. They are technically the hosts of this series so it won’t be a surprise to call them a better side from here.
Batting power – Yes, they don’t have Gayle but still they are above any side when it comes to T20 matches. This is because of their hard-hitting ability with their willow. The likes of Fletcher, Lewis, Samuels, Russell, Powell can snatch the game at any point of time.
Previous loss – Both Shakib and Tamim were exceptional in the last game which costed Winides a heartbreaking defeat. Windies would not want to repeat the same mistake in the final do or die encounter.
Sensational southpaws – Tamim and Shakib are playing their best cricket these days. The all-round ability of Shakib can help his side steal another victory over T20 champs. Apart from them, they have a strong middle-order as well.
Unity in bowling unit – Every Bangla bowler bowled really well in the series so far. In the 2nd T20, they were accurate in their line & length and this is why they restricted a team like Winides from scoring 172. We have seen in the past that Windies are champions in chasing especially in T20s but the effort from Asian side was phenomenal.
Cricwizz Prediction – Winides would be having an edge over Bangladesh.
