ICC World Cup Prediction: West Indies vs Bangladesh

Pitch Conditions

Venue: The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton

This ground has hosted only five World Cup matches till now and almost all of them were high scoring. So, this time also the track is expected to offer excellent support to the batsmen with a flat track. However, bowlers will also get some help due to the overcast conditions expected during the match. 


Team winning the toss is expected to bat first because chasing becomes a bit difficult on this ground. 

Total Matches played: 5

Matches won batting first: 3

Matches won batting second: 2

Average scores in both innings 

Average 1st innings score: 289

Average 2nd innings score: 274

Weather Conditions

Like previous matches, rain might be a spoiler as Taunton is expected to be covered with clouds the entire day. The temperature is going to be nearly 15 °C, and the humidity will be in the mid-80s. 

Team News: West Indies 

Andre Russell looked in some problem in the previous match, so, his inclusion in the team is not sure. Other than him the team management might include Ashley Nurse in place of Shannon Gabriel.
