BD-L vs WI-L T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Road Safety World Series 2022
Match 2 of the 2022 Road Safety World Series brings Bangladesh Legends and West Indies Legends together on Sunday evening in Kanpur. Bangladesh Legends came sixth out of seven with West Indies finishing fourth and reaching the semi-finals in last year’s competition. Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at the Green Park Stadium, Kanpur at 15:30 local time.
Bangladesh Legends did not win any games in the 2021 tournament and only finished above Australia who had to forfeit all of their matches. West Indies will be a very hard team to play against first up.
After going all the way to the semi-finals last year, West Indies Legends will be looking to go a stage further in 2022 and we expect them to be too strong for Bangladesh in this opener.

BD-L vs WI-L Match Toss Prediction
Both teams followed the same formula of choosing to field first every time they won the toss in the 2021 competition. We predict that the captains will both elect to bowl first in this game.
BD-L vs WI-L Pitch Report
Any score over 165 will be very hard to chase down on this wicket. We expect to find a pitch which turns from ball one in Kanpur.
There could be a very brief rain shower early on in this game but apart from that there will be no interruptions. The temperature will be in the low 30s from the start of the match.
