Windies has rested Chris Gayle for the 1st T20I against Bangladesh to be played at the Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.

Live updates:

West Indies 10/1 in 1.2 overs.

Bangladesh 143/9 in 20 overs

The match is scheduled to start at 8:30 PM Local, which is 6:30 AM on August 1, Bangladesh Standard time or BST.

Windies deservingly won the test series 2-0, while the visitors came back with a punch taking home the ODI series 2-1 on Saturday. This is the first series win for Bangladesh since 2009. Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal got the man of the series award for his two centuries.

While there are a few issues that the Windies need to address, the fiery knock of 74 by Rovman Powell was the only highlight for the Caribbean team in that third ODI. The World T20 champs, Windies would be looking at this series as an opportunity to climb up the rankings as they are placed at No. 7 currently.

Andre Russell declared fit

According to a report on Cricbuzz, all-rounder Andre Russell has been declared fit for the T20I series, having missed the last two ODIs.

The hosts have named Chadwick Walton as the replacement of Chris Gayle.

Led by Carlos Braithwaite, the Windies announced the 13-member squad which doesn't have Sunil Narine or Rayad Emrit. Even though the team is packed with quality T20 players, it will be interesting to see how they together as a team.

Soumya Sarkar comes back into the side

The visitors, on the other hand, will be riding on their success in the recently concluded ODI series.

There are only a couple of changes from the ODI squad, as Anamul Haque and Mashrafe Mortaza, who has retired from T20I, have traveled back home and made way for Soumya Sarkar and Ariful Haque.

Bangladesh hasn't enjoyed a lot of success in the shortest format in recent times, having lost a series 3-0 to Afghanistan in June this year. The Asian side will be targeting this series for a revival of their form in T20Is, as they will be carrying some momentum from ODI series into this three-match series.

The weather forecast seems to be clear with no expected rain.

The pitch is unlikely to change from the third ODI played here on Saturday. We might see a high-scoring match, considering the short boundaries at this ground.
