In the first match the home team Bangladesh had won the toss and batted first. Bangladesh scored 324 & 125 in reply West Indies scored 246 & 139 and Bangladesh won by 64 runs. Which means West Indies team was not far away from the victory in that match. Mominul Haque was the most runs scorer with 132 runs and his highest was 120. It looks like SO Hetmyer is back in-form because his score was 90 in first test. Taijul Islam (BD) took seven wickets and JA Warrican (WI) took six.
2nd Test, West Indies tour of Bangladesh 2018, Watch WI v BD Cricket highlights today – Second test day one from Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka (Bangladesh) Fri 30th November 2018. Dhaka served up a predominantly batting-friendly pitch in its previous Test but it is unlikely to go that way in the second Test. The weather remains mild.
West Indies’ first headache would be to replace the suspended Shannon Gabriel. Fast bowlers Keemo Paul and Shermon Lewis and pace-bowling allrounder Raymon Reifer are the candidates vying for the spot. Following Mushfiqur Rahim’s finger injury two days before the match, Bangladesh have enlisted Liton Das on stand-by, should Mushfiqur not be deemed match-ready. Shadman Islam is likely to make his Test debut in place of Imrul Kayes, who has a shoulder injury.
Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat.
