It wasn't really long ago that Bangladesh and West Indies played against each other in a bilateral series. Here we are again, witnessing Bangladesh taking on the Caribbean for the second time this year. Unlike before, it's West Indies who are going to be playing on Bangladeshi soil. The two teams will lock horns in the two-test series with the first match set to be played on 22nd November. West Indies thumped Bangladesh in July earlier this year and Bangladesh will be looking to conjure July ghosts by winning the opening test of the two-match series.
Bangladesh almost ended up being the first team in seventeen years to concede an away test series to Zimbabwe. With Shakib Al Hasan likely to miss the first test against West Indies, the experience in the batting order is still going to be a colossal concern for the team's think tank.
The Tigers bounced back in their series against Zimbabwe with a strong win in their second test and will need to continue their dominating form. If Shakib is declared fit before and is able to join the team, he will be embracing the role of the captain which will definitely be a big boost for the hosts.
Bangladesh will draw confidence from their batting which did extremely well at Dhaka in their last game. Mushfiqur Rahim's 219 knock was an important one both in context of the match as well as the series to come. While Bangladesh have done reasonably well with the bat in ODIs, their performance in the tests hasn't really been that good. Imrul Kayes and Soumya Sarkar have struggled for runs in Tamim's absence and will really need to step up.
In the series against Zimbabwe, their bowling did reasonably well with Taijul Islam being the pick of the bowlers. They've had a good record this year in Test Cricket this year. Shakib, if included, will boost the side's balance as well as the confidence which could be a game changer for Bangladesh in the upcoming test match.

While West Indies will draw confidence from their earlier win against Bangladesh, their loss against India was a reality check. Their tour against India proved to be largely unrewarding where they could only salvage one win across three formats. However, they did well in the warm-up game played here in Bangladesh.
Kieren Powell and Kraigg Brathwaite both scored half-centuries and are in the list of highest run-scorers for the West Indies this year. Shane Dowrich and Roston Chase, too, have done reasonably well in recent past. Chase scored a decent century against India in India which will definitely have boosted his confidence.
The absence of Jason Holder could really hurt West Indies chances, considering the experience and the balance he brings to the side with his all-around abilities. Their main spinner, Bishoo, hasn't done anything worth mentioning in the year so far which is surprising considering the surfaces West Indies have played on. Overall, West Indies are a very talented side but will need to apply that talent on the field and if they can do that, they can certainly make things difficult for the hosts.

With surface likely to crack towards the end of the test, batting fourth is going to be difficult. Therefore, we expect the team winning the toss to bat first
The conditions here will be pretty much similar to what it was like a month ago when Zimbabwe was playing, albeit the temperature has dropped down a little. Batting on the first couple of days is going to be nice and easy whereas the rest of the days are expected to be dominated by the spinners. Winning the toss and batting first will be the battle half won here.
West Indies slid from their high-point of their series win against Bangladesh to where they're now and there couldn't be a better point to register a win away from home. Bangladesh, on the other hand, didn't really have a good last test series where they failed to beat spirited Zimbabwe. The home side will be bolstered by the possible return of Shakib Al Hasan whereas the absence of Holder will really hurt the visitors. Considering the fact that its a home game for Bangladesh and they'll be familiar with the conditions better coupled with that they're a better side on paper as compared to Windies, they go in as firm favorites to win the upcoming encounter.
