There have been some exciting, high adrenaline battles in the Unacademy Road Safety World Series so far. But this particular clash may just have the greatest importance, as West Indies Legends and Bangladesh Legends come up against each other.
Both these teams have been winless since the start of the tournament. A loss here could spell the end of any qualification hopes.
Bangladesh Legends put in a much better shift against the Sri Lanka Legends despite losing by a considerable margin in their last match.
Nazimuddin has been excellent with the bat and will lead the line for Bangladesh Legends again. Khaled Mashud showed patience and grit and he should be promoted up the order for his efforts with the bat in our opinion. Mehrab Hossain will also be looked to as a batting mainstay. In the bowling department, Abdur Razzak, Mohammad Rafique and Mohammad Sharif were wonderful in their previous outing. They laid a rather efficient chokehold before the other bowlers were taken to the cleaners in the last 4 overs of the Sri Lankan batting innings. Bangladesh will go into this game in a better state than in the first three, for sure.
The West Indies Legends will come into the game well-rested and raring to go. They've lost most of their games narrowly so far and will look to exercise these ghosts today.
The batting department relies heavily on two players - the destructive Dwayne Smith and of course, Brian Lara. Ridley Jacobs is great with the bat as well, and a certain Tino Best, with his nature to lash out with the bat, rounds off the batting lineup of the Calypso Kings.
The bowling department will be led by Suliemann Benn and Tino Best (just can't seem to stay out of action, can he?) They will also rely on the services of Adam Sanford and Ryan Austin to give them wickets.
With Pride and semifinal hopes on the line, this contest looks to be a big one for both teams. An anticipated clash seeing the table, it promises to be a gripping one.
