The Bangladesh Tigers lost a likely point on the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup table when their match six days ago against a struggling Sri Lanka side was abandoned due to inclement weather. And that means that Bangladesh now need a victory over West Indies — a team that they defeated three times in a tri-series with Ireland just last month, according to CricBuzz, including a win in the final of that mini-tournament. And for the Windies, a promising start to the World Cup in which they dominated Pakistan in their opening match has since fizzled, with the Caribbean side losing both of its matches since, and also suffered a washout against South Africa. Now both sides face a must-win game in the match that will live stream from Somerset.

The first ball is scheduled to be bowled at 10:30 a.m. British Summer Time on Monday, June 17, at the 12,500-capacity Cooper Associates County Ground, in Taunton, Somerset, England.
The match will get started at 3:30 p.m. Bangladesh Standard Time and 3 p.m. India Standard Time. In the Caribbean islands, however, fans can log in to the live stream starting at 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning, Atlantic Standard Time, or 4:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. In the United States, cricket fans will need to set their alarm clocks to catch the World Cup match between Bangladesh and West Indies, with a start time of 5:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Monday, 2:30 a.m. Pacific.
The two teams have met three times in World Cup play, according to CricBuzz, with West Indies winning every time, including a 187-run blowout in the 2011 tournament. But much has changed in the past eight years for both teams, and West Indies enter Monday’s game as underdogs — a role that Captain Jason Holder says does not bother his team.
“If you want to put us in the underdog category, fair enough. We’ve played them quite a bit in the recent past and they’ve gotten the better of us in recent past. Like I said, different stage, lots at stake for this game. We’re all up for it,” Holder said on Sunday, as quoted by CricBuzz.
