West Indies face Bangladesh in the third T20 international match on Thursday, July 7 at Providence Stadium in Guyana from 11 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).

West Indies were comfortable winners in both Tests and have also asserted their dominance in the T20I series. The hosts reduced Bangladesh to 105/8 in the first T20 international before rain played spoilsport and beat the visitors by 35 runs in the second match.

Rovman Powell scored an unbeaten 28-ball 61 and Brandon King also scored a fifty in the last match as the hosts cruised to a victory. They are expected to make no changes to their playing XI.

The Bangladesh cricket team has struggled in all three departments on this tour. Shakib Al Hasan’s unbeaten 68 in the last game is the only positive for the visitors in the T20Is. They have lost the last three completed matches in his format against the hosts. Bangladesh are also expected to field the same playing XI in Guyana for the final match in the T20 international series.

West Indies were the dominant side in the recently concluded Tests and have also looked the better team in the opening two T20Is. Their current form and head-to-head record make them the clear favourites to clean sweep this series.

Bangladesh have struggled with the bat on this tour and their bowling looked in poor form in the last match. The visitors will find it difficult to mount a challenge in this match.
