The second and final Test between Bangladesh and West Indies will commence in Dhaka tomorrow. Bangladesh won the first Test in Chittagong by 64 runs and will look to clinch their first ever Test series against a non-Zimbabwe side at home.
The spin trio of Shakib al Hasan, Taijul Islam, and Nayeem Hasan will be the keys for the hosts as Dhaka will probably be a spin friendly track and in batting Mominul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim are the trump cards. On the other hand, West Indies need to play a great brand of cricket to level the series. Their top order batsmen were pretty poor in the first Test and couldn't even reach into double digits. Captain Kraigg Braithwaite and Shai Hope need to score big runs.
