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.

The surface, as it was for the previous two matches at the ground, is expected to offer something for the faster men but the short boundaries will still encourage the batsmen. f there is no rain and we get a full hundred overs, expect the big hitters like Chris Gayle and co to make merry at Taunton.
The weather forecast for the match between West Indies and Bangladesh is expected to be sunny in the day but light showers are predicted as the day progresses.
