For West Indies, rain played a major spoilsport and their bowling unit is not clicking despite the strong winning performance against Sri Lanka in their first match of the series. The highly talented team contains strike rotators, big hitters, and nasty bowlers along with capable all-rounders. Their captain is the face of the team and he has got the ability to do anything in the failed but somehow they are not clicking as a unit, which is a major concern for them.

For Bangladesh, their batting unit is in top-notch form and delivering every time. Especially Shakib al Hassan who has already got a century and 2 half-centuries to his name. WI bowlers need to get him out early for their winning hopes but for Bangladesh, he needs to be at the top in order to put up a strong performance with the bat. Weather remains clear and a full day of play is expected. So it is important for both the teams to pull off a victory in order to keep their semi-final hopes alive.

Mohammed Nabi is one of the vastly experienced players in the squad. Afghans will be looking for his all-round performance to emerge victoriously and he has got all the capabilities to win matches single-handedly.


Steve Smith:

He is one of the very few Aussies who can play spin better. With Afganistan having highly talented spinners in their ranks Steve smith has got a huge role to play in order to stay away from the upset.

Pat Cummins:

He is one of the major reasons for Australia’s success in recent years. Highly talented fast bowling all-rounder can be a handy batsman lower down the order and can post the biggest threat with his ability to swing in both the ways along with his pace.

If Australia can able to tackle spin they can easily emerge victorious.
