Tamim Iqbal has the honour of scoring the highest in Guyana cricket Stadium in an ODI (130* off 160) which was against the host nation, West Indies in 2018. All eyes would be on him to lead his team to a good score.

Bangladesh hasn’t been able to execute a good teamwork in the series against West Indies, the ODI series will be a fresh chance for them to enhance their performance in one of their most deemed formats. On the other hand, West Indies have been dominating in the current series and will come with a high morale, their experiment of testing the young squad has proved to be successful until now.

West Indies vs Bangladesh – 1st ODI – Match Predictions & Tips: Winner Prediction

Bangladesh’s most pressing format is ODI. They have an excellent record throughout in this limited overs format, no matter the opposition they are playing against. Therefore, Bangladesh is likely to perform better and win the series, however, West Indies would put in their full effort to clinch victory as they have been in the past matches of the 2022 series against Bangladesh.
