Did you know, Bangladesh never played any International Cricket match in Florida?
Yes, you have heard the right. But now they are going to play for the first time in there on Sunday, 5th August.
As this will be their first game in Florida, captain Shakib is expecting a lot of crowds there and he is also excited too.
Bangladesh couldn’t start their West Indies mission as our expectations. There were ups and downs from the beginning of this series. They lost the test match series but they fought back in ODI series. They won the series by 2-1 lead.
Now we‘ll have to wait whether they can finish their West Indies mission with another success or not.
The statistics say Bangladesh have played 6 T20 matches against West Indies. In those matches, Bangladesh has won 2 matches and lost 3 matches and the other match had no result.
In the last match, Bangladesh lost against West Indies by 7 wickets with 5 balls remaining by D.L. method.
At first, Bangladesh was able to score only 143 runs in the first innings. But the rain stopped the play.
In due course, the match again started. But the match was reduced to 11 overs and the new target was 91.
Though Shakib played some matches in Central Broward Regional Park stadium in CPL, he can’t be sure about the wicket.
Shakib sees a lot of differences in the wicket as compared to the last year when he played CPL. He also said maybe he will understand the pitch during the practice session.

Now if Bangladesh wants to survive in this series, they will have to win this match to level the score. Otherwise, we don’t see any other better option for them.
So, who can probably play the second T20 match? Let’s wait for Sunday morning. We’ll soon know the result.
Shakib Al Hasan said one interesting thing to the journalists. He said Bangladesh can’t play well as long as long as the players’ back get stuck by the wall.
This is so true. There may be one change in the Bangladesh team. We’ll have to wait till Sunday.
