First ODI Preview: Bangladesh vs. West Indies
Bangladesh and West Indies will face off in a feisty contest in the first ODI of the three-match series in Dhaka on Saturday. Both teams have already faced each other in the five-day format when Bangladesh registered a comprehensive 2-0 series sweep.

The Tigers will go into the contest as firm favourites after managing to win the ODI series against the Caribbean giants on their home ground when the last time both teams met in the 50-over contest. In the batting department, Mashrafe Mortaza-led unit have already received a major boost as veteran opener Tamim Iqbal has been included in the squad after a length injury layoff. With his arrival, the responsibility of scoring most of the team's runs will be shared by Iqbal, wicketkeeper-batsman Musfhiqur Rahim and all-rounders Shakib al Hasan and Mahmudullah. In the bowling the department, the onus will be on the likes of pacer Mustafizur Rahman and off-spinner Mehidy Hasan to provide timely breakthroughs.
