Bangladesh to bat first in second T20I

West Indies won the toss and opted to field in the second T20I at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur on Thursday. As expected, West Indies are unchanged for today's game. In fact, Bangladesh have also decided to go with the same XI.


West Indies lead the three-match series 1-0 after a crushing eight-wicket win in Monday's opening match.


While we always talk about West Indies being a stronger outfit in the shortest format, their record in 2018 doesn't support that claim. Before the first T20I on Monday, West Indies had won just two of their 12 T20Is this year.


Bangladesh XI: Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(wk), Mahmudullah, Ariful Haque, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Abu Hider, Mustafizur Rahman


West Indies XI: Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (wk), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Fabian Allen, Keemo Paul, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
