West Indies will take on Bangladesh in the second T20I on Sunday, July 3 at the Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica. Notably, the first match of the 3-match series could see only 13 overs of play due to incessant rain. The teams will have to win both the remaining matches to seal the series in their favour.
West Indies and Bangladesh have played a total of 14 T20I matches against each other. West Indies have won 7, while Bangladesh 5. In the last five T20Is between the two sides, Bangladesh have managed just one win. West Indies are the seventh ranked T20I team in the world, while Bangladesh are placed just behind them at eight. As we gear up for the 2nd T20I, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the WI vs BAN 2nd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the WI vs BAN head-to-head contest.
In their last four T20I matches, West Indies have lost their first wicket for 6, 34, 4 and 59 runs respectively. West Indies played three of these matches in India and the one in which they stitched a 59-run partnership was also against a quality side like England in Bridgetown. In their home conditions, West Indies have lost their first wicket for 59, 64, 11, 3 and 52 in their last five matches. All these matches were against England who had the likes of Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali, and Tymal Mills in their bowling unit. Brandon King and Kyle Mayers should not find it difficult to score over 19.5 runs against an under-pressure Bangladesh who lost the Test series 0-2. Apart from Mustafizur Rahman, Bangladesh bowlers do not possess any major threat. Mayers has scores of 6, 9, 31, 31 and 40 in his last five T20I innings, while King has scores of 22, 4, 34, 26 and 10 in his last five outings in the shortest format of the game. King had scored 67, 43 and 52 not out runs in the T20I series in Pakistan in December, 2021. Scoring over 20 runs without losing any wickets should not be difficult for West Indies in the second T20I. If you feel the same, head over to 1xBet to grab the best odds of 1.87 for the same and place your bet on West Indies to score over 19.5 at first dismissal from the WI vs BAN 2nd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Nicholas Pooran and Shamarh Brooks are my top two player betting tips for the WI vs BAN 2nd T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Nicholas Pooran, the new captain of the West Indies white-ball team has played a total of 58 T20Is, scoring 1193 runs at an average of 27.74. The 26-year-old has hit a total of eight fifties in the format at the international level. The southpaw last played a T20I against India ahead of IPL 2022 in February this year. He was in sublime form in the 3-match series, scoring 61, 62 and 61 runs - a total of 184 runs at an average of 61.33 to finish as the leading run-scorer in the series. Prior to those three matches, he scored 21, 22, 70, 24, 27* and 64. Nicholas Pooran last batted against Bangladesh in the 2021 T20 World Cup and scored 40 runs off 22 balls. Overall, he has played five matches (including the 1st T20I in which he did not bat) against Bangla Tigers and scored 106 runs at an average of 35.33. Representing Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2022, Pooran scored 306 runs at an average of 38.25. In home conditions the Trinidad-born is expected to come all guns blazing against under-confident Bangladesh. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and keep an eye on Nicholas Pooran from the WI vs BAN head-to-head encounter.
If there is one West Indies batter you should surely put your bet on, it's Shamarh Brooks. The 33-year-old has been in sublime form in white-ball cricket over the last few months. The 33-year-old scored 60, 6 and 101* in the 3-match ODI series against Netherlands in May-June before hitting 70 and 42 and 18 runs in the 3-match ODI series in Pakistan. The right-hand batsman has played only four T20I till date since his debut in December 2021. He scored 5 and 10 runs in the first two matches against Pakistan before slamming 49 off 31 in the final match of the series. Notably, Brooks also made his ODI debut in January 2022. In the Pakistan series, Brooks scored his runs against the likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf and Shadab Khan. With form and benefit of home conditions on his side, we can expect Shamarh Brooks to score high in his first T20I innings on his home soil on Sunday. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and keep an eye on Shamarh Brooks from the WI vs BAN head-to-head encounter.
