Bangladesh and West Indies will look to bring their campaign at the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup back on track when the two sides face each other in the 23rd match of the mega event at County Ground in Taunton on Monday.

Both sides have just one win from the four matches they have played so far in the quadrennial event. West Indies and Bangladesh both suffered a washout apiece against South Africa and Sri Lanka, respectively.

However, West Indies are standing at the sixth spot while Bangladesh are languishing down to the eight position in the ten-team points table on the basis of the net run rate.

In the nine games the two sides have faced each other in the last 12 months, Bangladesh emerged out victorious in nine games.

This means the Mashrafe Mortaza-led side will not lack confidence when they face West Indies, consisting some of the big-hitters like Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmeyer and Evin Lewis.

The two squads are as follows:

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Liton Das, Sabbir Rahman, Abu Jayed.

West Indies: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (wk), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder (C), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Ashley Nurse, Darren Bravo, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach.
