Bangladesh will be hoping to restore some pride in the third and final one-dayer against West Indies at the Warner Park today, having already lost the three-match ODI series.
The touring party failed to break their woeful form this season as they succumbed to an embarrassing 177 runs defeat in the second one-day match, after they surrendered the series opener in Granada from a winning position.
Bangladesh never looked like they could challenge the Caribbean Islanders, apart from those first 15 overs of the opening match. Their bowlers have performed quite well but constant batting collapse prevented them from putting any fight.
In the second ODI, the Windies bowlers restricted the visitors to a mere 70-run total, in chase of 248. Opener Tamim Iqbal was the highest scorer for the Tigers, while rest of the batsmen couldn't touch the double figure mark.
"None of them even tried," skipper Mushfiqur Rahim said. "Everyone feels guilty when they play badly, but if they had been a bit more inspired to play for the country, it would have got us closer to the target and given us some confidence going into the next game."
This is the 16th time in limited-overs that Bangladesh have been bundled inside 100 runs and second time this season. The final match is their only chance of getting back on track ahead of the Test series and there is no reason that they can't do it.
The Rahim-led side lost the first match from a winning position and they had a moderate total in sight in the second. Their bowlers have delivered in both the encounters but lack of runs on the board prevented them from snatching a win.
Bangladesh have quality batsmen, Rahim being their most prolific run scorer this season. Anamul Haque has already scored a ton in this series and they have the likes of Nasir Hossain and Tamim Iqbal. They just need to be disciplined and put away the bad deliveries.
"We have played in St Kitts before," Mushfiqur pointed out. "The wicket is flat and the ground is comparatively smaller. But wherever you play, you have to do the job properly. Their bowlers will be the same, so we have to bat more responsibly."
"Our ball selection has to be better," he added. "When the bowlers don't get any help from the wicket, the onus is on the batsmen to do well."
On the other hand, Windies have done a brilliant job of pulling off wins in both the matches. They displayed a much better performance and managed to stitch some decent partnerships in second, after a top-order collapse in the first match.
The hosts are at the top and hoping to keep their winning form going and cleansweep the ODI series, before facing Bangladesh in a one-off Twenty20 match and two-match Test series, starting 9 September.
"We are happy that we won the series but I think we have to take the last as serious as the first game and try to win a series without losing a game," West Indies Sunil Narine said. "We would love to start back on the winning note as we are doing here now. We just need to build on this momentum. Try to win couple more games and win more series."
Expected lineups: West Indies: Chris Gayle, Kirk Edwards, Darren Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Dwayne Bravo (c), Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Ravi Rampaul and Kemar Roach.
Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim (c & wk), Nasir Hossain, Mahmudullah, Sohag Gazi, Mashrafe Mortaza, Taskin Ahmed and Al-Amin Hossain.
