Freedom in the air

Lone T20I tomorrow

Sports Reporter

With the lone T20I against West Indies due to take place on Thursday morning at 6:00 am BST, the Tigers may take some comfort in the knowledge that their T20I run this year has been slightly better than their abysmal ODI record this year. Of the nine T20Is played, the Tigers have won two as opposed to a winless ODI record.
Considering that one of their T20I defeats came against Hong Kong, the comfort seems short-lived. On the surface a T20I win cannot make up for the thumping 3-0 ODI defeat. However, their miserable run this year means that they will be desperate for a win regardless of the format.
Slow left-armer Taijul Islam travelled to St Kitts to make it in time for the T20I, although it is uncertain whether he will play. The West Indians will be counting on specialised T20 players with the likes of Krishmar Santokie and Suleiman Benn coming in.
The two teams have faced each other five times in T20Is with Bangladesh winning twice.
