The West Indies and Bangladesh are both teams in desperate need of a win when they gather for their clash in Taunton to salvage their campaign and keep their chances of making the semi-finals in the 2019 Cricket World Cup alive.
Both Bangladesh and West Indies have shown promise, have had their moments so far in the World Cup but haven’t been able to turn it into something substantial.
There is very little to differentiate between the two sides. Both teams have so far played four games and are on three points each. West Indies are sixth on the points table with two losses, one win and a washed out encounter. Bangladesh, eighth on the points table have also lost two encounters, won one and had a game washed out.
The story so far has been pretty much the same for both the teams. West Indies brushed aside Pakistan but lost their next two encounters against Australia and England while their game against South Africa was abandoned due to heavy rain.
Bangladesh too had a good start to their tournament as they registered a tough win against South Africa. However, two losses against New Zealand and England have pegged them back. It will also not help that Bangladesh have not played a game since June 8.
