Bangladesh vs. West Indies, second ODI
On Wednesday, July 13 in Guyana, the second of the three ODIs will take place between West Indies and Bangladesh. The home team successfully won both the T20I and Test series, and they will aim for a similar run in the ODIs. The hosts would have to fight back hard to win the following two games and complete a clean sweep of the three series, though, as they were already down 0-1 after losing the opening game of the series by a margin of six wickets.
After the first T20I was cancelled owing to weather, Nicholas Pooran’s team trounced the visitors in the two subsequent matches. He would inspire his men to continue fighting with the same ferocity and not surrender to the opposition.
How did they act thus far?
The Test and T20I series were both won by the Windies, who had been the tour’s dominant team.
However, the visitors came out strong in the first ODI, which was plagued by rain. The Men in Green initially held the West Indies to a pitiful score of 149/9 before successfully chasing down the goal of 142 in 32 overs. The Bangla tigers should also deliver the same performance in these contests.
Momentum can be a very effective tool in cricket, and after their resounding performances throughout the T20I series, it’s difficult not to envision West Indies maintaining that momentum into this opening ODI.
While Bangladesh could perform better in the 50-over format, West Indies should still show to be too strong for them in this match because of the favourable circumstances they have so far experienced and their superior batting depth, which has handily surpassed their opponents. Therefore, we predict that the hosts will win the second ODI.
Under the challenging conditions in Bangladesh, the West Indies’ touring team, captained by Jason Mohammed, played poorly. The Windies batting unit’s performance in the series was viewed as a huge failure since they were unable to hold their own against the Bangla bowling attack and lost every match. The hosts have dominated both the Tests and T20Is on this trip, so the tables have turned this time. Bangladesh will be without Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim in the 50 over format for the first time since their debuts in 2006.
Being consistent may be difficult since it takes a lot of self control, and if one is not used to being constant in one’s actions, it may become an altogether new habit. Consistency in practise instils discipline, sharpens our attention, and increases our awareness of what has to be done. It may be quite difficult to break old habits, yet consistency in all that we do is necessary if we want to better things and experience personal progress. If you constantly practise a new skill for a while, you can assess if it will be a success or a failure. If getting results quickly is your cup of tea, there’s a good possibility you could quit or abandon doing things.
