Toss West Indies chose to bat v Bangladesh
West Indies captain Jason Holder has chosen to bat first against Bangladesh at Malahide. Holder said he would like to see a better fielding performance from his team, after what he felt were poor displays in that aspect in the previous games.
West Indies have dropped Shannon Gabriel to bring in Raymon Reifer for his his ODI debut. Reifer is a left-arm pace bowler and lower-middle-order batsman, and has so far played a single Test against New Zealand in December 2017.
Bangladesh too have an ODI debutant with Abu Jayed brought in to replace Mohammad Saifuddin who is out with back spasms. Jayed has played five Tests and three T20Is.
Bangladesh are reportedly considering replacing Jayed with Taskin Ahmed in the main World Cup squad, although BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said the decision will be taken closer to the ICC deadline to change the squad, which is May 23.
