==============================================================

Toss: Bangladesh have won the toss and they have decided to bowl first.

Defending champions West Indies and hosts Bangladesh would be desperate to win their first match of the tournament, after failing to put any fight in their first matches.

West Indies were defeated convincingly by seven wickets by India in their first match. The Windies failed to tackle Indian spin bowling and their swashbuckling opener Dwayne Smith managed to score just 11 runs off 19 balls. MS Dhoni hit the field with a plan where maximum overs in the beginning of the innings were bowled by spinners who got through their overs quickly which created enormous pressure on the middle-order batsmen. The onus will once again be on Chris Gayle, to live upto the reputation of being the hardest hitter of the cricket ball in the world. In the bowling department, skipper Darren Sammy would want mystery spinner Sunil Narine to weave his magic once again.

Bangladesh on the other hand would want to make the home spectators proud with a win. Bangladesh have found it difficult to find their momentum this year, and even in this tournament, they suffered defeat at the hands of an inexperienced side like Hong Kong. Sohag Ghazi is expected to be included in the playing eleven and senior players like Tamim Iqbal, Shakib al Hasan and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim will have to play vital roles to put up a good show.
