Probable best batter of the match

Evin Lewis (West Indies)

Evin Lewis has been excellent for the West Indies in the T20 tournament. The left-hander couldn’t get going in their game against England. Also, he showed his class against South Africa. The southpaw smashed 56 runs off 35 balls with the help of three fours and six sixes. He will be looking to replicate something similar against the Tigers as well.

Probable best bowler of the match

Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh)

He has been the standout bowler for Bangladesh in the ongoing edition of the T20 World Cup. The left-arm pacer scored runs and picked up wickets for fun in the Qualifiers. The Magura-born also picked up two wickets against Sri Lanka. Albeit he failed to deliver against England, he is expected to make a comeback against the West Indies.
