Chris Gayle, the hard hitting West Indian opener, is not taking Bangladesh as an easy opponent in their tour series which will commence on November 13 with a Test match. He has mentioned the host as a dangerous opponent at home. The Caribbeans have experienced defeat in an ODI and a Twenty20 in Bangladesh.
A 15-man West Indian team arrived in Dhaka on November 3 to play two Test, three ODIs and a Twenty20 international.
The inclusion of Chris Gayle will definitely increase the strength of the Test squad. The left-hand batsman was in the team when they last toured Bangladesh. His absence brought the teams closer, but players like Marlon Samuels, Kirk Edwards, Darren Bravo and Devendra Bishoo clinched the Test and ODI series respectively by 1-0 and 2-1.
The aggressive batsman is now in good form. He has so far played four Tests and has an average of 69.40. No doubt, he is going to be a big threat for Bangladeshi bowlers.
Young and promising players of Bangladesh cricket team are also confident of playing well. They are hopeful of competitive game. There is no doubt that Bangladesh cricket team is going to face a tough challenge as they will take on World Twenty20 Champion.
It is the time to see if Bangladesh cricket team can make the home crowd happy.
