Bangladesh have remained unchanged in the last ODI. They haven’t changed their combination throughout the series. Under-performers like Anamul Haque, Sabbir Rahman and Mosaddek Hossaim have got another chance.

Windies have been hit by all-rounder Andre Russell’s injury blow. Left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell was announced as replacement just a day before the match. Cottrell has come in Alzarri Joseph’s place. Kieran Powell has been brought in for Jason Mohammed.

Bangladesh have not won any ODI series away from home in last nine years. They won 3-0 in Windies and 4-1 in Zimbabwe in 2009. If they win this match, it will be their third ODI series win against Windies. To be mentioned, they haven’t won any international series since beating Afghanistan by 2-1 in 2016.
