Cloud of concern over Shakib’s head
Bangladesh has been really concerned with the fitness of their senior player, Shakib Al Hasan. He had retired him out during his previous innings while batting. According to the Cricbuzz report, the participation of Shakib will depend on the fitness test which will be carried out on the eve of the match. Other than this, Bangladesh is unlikely to make any more changes to their side.
Windies seek their first series triumph after five years
West Indies hasn’t beaten Bangladesh in the two matches they have played against them. They would sense an opportunity to win an ODI series after five years. The good thing is that there are no injury concerns within the side so skipper Jason Holder can choose the same XI as he had opted for in the last match.

The seamers would be happy to know that the weather conditions might be slightly overcast. There could some amount of rain during the day and we .might see some increase in overs. The pitch is still good for batting and it could be a cracker of a match.
