Bangladesh, for example, have a five-day gap before their next game against West Indies in Taunton. After losing the first game against New Zealand by 10 wickets, the islanders have managed to steady their ship.

He is expected to join the team, before the team's next #CWC19 game, which will be played against Australia on 15th. "We'll be hopeful that they are going to worry about some of our players".
