Players like Kraigg Brathwaite and Jayden Seales will be crucial for the team.
On the other hand, the visitors lost their home series against Sri Lanka and would look to come up with improved performances. The key players like Shoriful Islam, and Mushfiqur Rahim will not be featuring in the series. They would rely on the contributions of Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan.
