Bangladesh is all set to host the mighty Caribbeans for 2-match Test series, the first of which would be played at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong, followed by the duel at Dhaka. While the game’s expected to land in the home team’s favor, owing to the advantage they’d receive in the pitch conditions, one mustn’t consider the Windies as a weak link, as they had managed to tickle the Indian unit on numerous occasions in their red-ball encounters, and a similar could be expected out of them in the forthcoming series versus the Bangla Tigers.
Best economical pick – Mehidy has been special with the ball as well, his five-wicket haul in the second innings saving the series for Bangladesh, but it is Taijul Islam who will hope to be the real force again – he took three consecutive five-wicket hauls and was Player of the Series against Zimbabwe, and will want more of the same this series.
Top captains & vice captains – Known for his aggressive batting and deceptive bowling, Shakib Al Hasan is undoubtedly the best all-rounder Bangladesh cricket has ever produced and he is currently regarded as one of the best all-rounders in world cricket. He was out with a finger injury for over a month, and missed the clashes against Zimbabwe. He will return to skipper the side against the Windies, and Bangladesh will be a significantly raised threat with him in the side. In a poor series against India, the one Windies player who the Indians were glad to see the back of was Roston Chase. He was excellent against spin, and scored a century and a half-century in the two Tests. In similar conditions in Bangladesh, more of the same will be expect of Chase, and with Holder absent, it is crucial for the Windies that he delivers.
Smart pick – Mushfiqur Rahim, one of Bangladesh’s leading run-getter in red-ball cricket, would be the wicket the Windies would be aiming for since the inception of the duel. Having notched a double century in the previous Test, Mushfiqur would be beaming with confidence and would probably find it a lot easier to amass some majestic numbers in the first duel against Windies.
Cautions Pick – The Bangladeshi opening batsman Imrul Kayes would be under tremendous pressure to perform in this series. The hard-hitting veteran batsman is yet to put up an innings of substance in his long test career. Imrul Kayes failed totally in the last test series against Zimbabwe where he scored just 51 runs in the 2 tests he played.
My XI – Shakib Al Hasan (Captain), Roston Chase (Vice-Captain), Mushfiqur Rahim, Taijul Islam, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Soumya Sarkar, Devendra Bishoo, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Sunil Ambris
