Visiting side Bangladesh will look to motivate themselves as their tour of the Caribbean turns its attention to 50-over cricket, the side’s favourite form of the game. To start off, Bangladesh will take on the University of West Indies VC XI in a 50-over warm-up game at Kingston today. 

The Tigers’ tour of the Caribbean got off to a rocky start as the Windies convincingly whitewashed them 2-0 in the Test series last week. With the ODI series set to start from July 22, Bangladesh will put their focus on one-day cricket and the warm-up match will act as a great platform to fine-tune the team and give the members who joined the squad for the ODI series, some action. The second and third match of the ODI series will take place on July 26 and 28 respectively.

Bangladesh ODI captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza, who was in doubt for the series due to his wife being ill, will reach the team hotel today and is set to miss the warm-up game. However, the other five members of the ODI squad who travelled from Dhaka Saturday with the likes of left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman, wicket-keeper batsman Anamul Haque and batsman Sabbir Rahman will be seen to take the field against a strong local opponent featuring some big names from the islands.

Star opener Chris Gayle, Chadwick Walton and all-rounder Andre Russell are all set to take the field for the UWIVC XI against the Bangladeshis.
