BAN vs WI Match Prediction – Today’s match Playing 11 ODI series, Match 1
BAN vs WI Match Prediction: Bangladesh will be resuming their international cricket after hosting the BCB president’s Cup and the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. The West Indies will play 3 ODI games against the host Bangladesh. The first game will be played on Wednesday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on January 20.
The star players are back in the squad in the form of Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Saifuddin. So the host will feature with the full strength squad in the 1st ODI. As far as the visitor’s team is concerned, they will miss most of the major players after they opted out of the tour.
The skipper Jason Mohammed will have a tough task at the beginning of the series. Windies front line spinner Hayden Walsh Jr has been ruled out after testing positive for COVID-19. Nevertheless, the hosts are definitely favorites at the start of this tournament.
The pitch in Mirpur has always been good for the spinners and we can expect the same in the 1st ODI. it will be a lot on the slower side and the spinners will come in play more in the second half of the game. Hence, it’s a win the toss and bat first pitch.

Top Picks - Bangladesh vs West Indies
Tamim Iqbal- Bangladesh
A leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in ODI cricket and his numbers are unparalleled. He struck a couple of massive tons against Zimbabwe last year.
However, yet to score big inning against a top team. Its interesting to see how he carries the legacy set by their ex-skipper Mashrafe Mortaza.
Sunil Ambris- West Indies
Sunil Ambris, a high in potential and should be opening the batting for the West Indies in the 50-overs format. He already has a century and two half-centuries under his belt and scored 447 runs from 13 ODIs.
