West Indies will take on Bangladesh in the third T20I on Sunday, July 7 at the Providence Stadium, Guyana. Notably, the first match of the 3-match series could see only 13 overs of play due to incessant rain, while the hosts won the second T20I by 35 runs on Sunday. West Indies will be eyeing a win for series win on Thursday after the 2-0 whitewash of the visitors in the Test series.
West Indies and Bangladesh have played a total of 15 T20I matches against each other. West Indies have won 8, while Bangladesh 5. In the last five T20Is between the two sides, Bangladesh have managed just one win. West Indies are the eighth ranked T20I team in the world, while Bangladesh are placed just behind them at ninth. As we gear up for the 3rd T20I, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the WI vs BAN 3rd T20I head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the WI vs BAN 3rd T20I head-to-head contest.
In their last five T20I matches, West Indies have lost their first wicket for 18, 6, 34, 4 and 59 runs respectively. West Indies played three of these matches in India and two at home. The one in which they stitched a 59-run partnership was against a quality side like England in Bridgetown, while in their previous match at Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica which they won by 35 runs. In their home conditions, West Indies have lost their first wicket for 18, 59, 64, 11, 3 and 52 in their last six matches. Barring their last match at home, 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 stitched 18 runs together in the first match but 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 and Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh bowlers do not possess any major threat. However, Rahman leaked 37 runs in the first match and went wicketless while Shakib took one wicket after giving away 38 runs in four overs. Mayers has scores of 17, 6, 9, 31, 31 and 40 in his last six T20I innings, while King has scores of 57, 22, 4, 34, 26 and 10 in his last six 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 before slamming 43-ball 57 on Sunday. Scoring over 20 runs without losing any wickets should not be difficult for West Indies in the second T20I.

Shakib Al Hasan and Brandon King are my top two player betting tips for the WI vs BAN 2nd T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh stalwart and the only player to score over 2000 runs and take over 100 wickets in the T20I format, has played a total of 98 T20Is and scored 2005 runs at an average of 23.31. The 35-year-old has hit nine fifties in the format. Coming into the series, Shakib, in his last five T20I innings, had scores of 9, 5, 9, 4 and 10. He scored 9 runs in his last innings against West Indies at the T20 World Cup 2021. His last fifty in the format came in September 2019 against Afghanistan in 2019. However, the Magura-born star bounced back to form and scored 15-ball 29 while batting for his side in the rain-marred first T20I. In the second T20I, he impressed again and top-scored for his side with 68 unbeaten runs off 52 balls. The former captain fought a lone battle as his team went down by 35 runs. The innings included 5 fours and three sixes as the West Indies bowling unit had no answers to the brilliance and experience of Shakib Al Hasan. Overall, the southpaw has played 13 matches against West Indies and scored 342 runs at an average of 31.09. Shakib Al Hasan's T20I batting average in four matches from 2022 is 37.00. In 2021, he played 18 T20I matches and scored 327 runs at an average of 19.23. Shakib Al Hasan seems to have developed a liking for the slow wickets of West Indies and looks set to score some handy runs for his team in the third T20I. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and keep an eye on Shakib Al Hasan from the WI vs BAN head-to-head encounter.
Brandon King set the tone for West Indies in the second T20I with his 43-ball 57 (including seven fours and a six) which fired West Indies to a handsome 193 for 5. The importance of the innings was immense as West Indies lost two quick wickets inside four overs. The third-wicket stand between King and captain Nicholas Pooran accounted for 74 runs. King has been in sublime white-ball form lately. He scored 58 and 91 unbeaten runs in the first and second T20I against Netherlands in June. The 27-year-old has hit three fifties in his last 10 T20I innings. Overall, the right-hand batsman has scored 469 runs at an average of 23.45 in 23 T20I matches. He carried a strike rate of 124.73 in the format. In the 78 T20s King has played, he has scored 1606 runs at an average of 25.49. He has one hundred and nine fifties to his name in the T20 format. Brandon King batted against Bangladesh for the first time on Sunday and he seems to have developed a lining for their bowlers. We can expect him to score high again in the third and decisive T20I on Thursday. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and keep an eye on Brandon King from the WI vs BAN head-to-head encounter.
