Players to Watch Out for
Barring Mushfiqur Rahim, no batter from Bangladesh has been composed under pressure. It was his 57* off 37 against Sri Lanka that rocketed them to a competitive total and 29 off 30 against England that kept them in the game. Both innings went in vain, but we are here to choose a fantasy player. He seems like a safe candidate to pick.
Had it not been for Evin Lewis’ 56 off 35, West Indies would have been bundled out for another paltry score. He hit as many as 6 sixes and 3 fours before his team lost the plot. He, in fact, has been in good form since the Indian T20 League, hammering 151 runs with a strike rate of 162 in 5 games.
Shakib Al Hasan was out of sorts in the last two games, but in the qualifiers, he had managed 9 wickets and scored 106 runs in 3 games. To make matters more fascinating, he has excellent numbers against West Indies with both ball and bat: in 10 T20Is he has scalped 19 wickets at 13. 1 and scored 236 runs at 26.2.
Before the failure against England, Mohammad Naim had scored 477 in 19 T20Is this year. He has already scored two half-centuries in the ongoing T20 World Cup.
Mustafizur Rahman likes to hunt down West Indian batters. He has taken 13 wickets at an impressive strike rate of 8.3 in 6 T20Is. He, however, has gone wicketless in the last 2 games.
Akeal Hossain has been the only impressive bowler for West Indies. He picked up the important wickets of Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone in their first game, and ended up with figures of 1 for 24.
