After their previous match against Sri Lanka was washed out due to rain Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza and his men will look for a better prospect when they will take on two-time World Cup champions West Indies in the 23rd match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. On the other side, West Indies who have failed to live up to their aggression will aim to return back to winning ways.

This venue witnessed some of the amazing innings like two quadruple hundreds and Archie Maclaren’s record of 424 being followed 93 years later by Graeme Hick’s 405*

If we take a look at ODI statistics, then this venue has staged 3 matches in total. Out of it, 2 times the team batting first have won while the team chasing has triumphed 1 time. This venue hasn’t witnessed any tie breaker as of yet.
