The 23rd match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between West Indies and Bangladesh at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton on Monday, June 17.
West Indies are currently placed at the sixth spot in the points table with one win, and two losses in the four games played so far. They still have six games to go and would ideally need to win at least four of those to have a reasonable probability of progressing to the next round.
Bangladesh defeated West Indies in the final of tri-series which happened right before this ICC event started which should be a big confidence booster for them. Having said that, that West Indies unit was a second string side that did not feature the likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, and Evin Lewis.
While both the sides have shown glimpses of individual brilliance in the tournament thus far, they both are dealing with their own set of problems. Batting out fifty overs has been a significant problem for the Windies while Bangladesh appears to be a little too over-reliant on Shakib Al Hasan.
With all 10 teams at the World Cup part of the round-robin group stage, each team will play a total of nine matches before the knockout stages, starting July 9. The top four teams will qualify for the knockout stages.
