About the Match

Despite Nurul Hasan's fighting knock on the third day, poor batting by Bangladesh's batsmen led to a humiliating defeat at the hands of West Indies in a historical test. It wasn't a pitch which had a lot of demons on the opening day of the match, rather it was only a case of their batsmen not applying themselves. The Caribbean team, on the other hand, played flawless cricket and eventually won by an innings and 219 runs. Going forward into the second test, scheduled to begin on July 12th, Bangladesh will need to pull up their socks and play out of their skins to bounce back from what was heart-wrenching defeat.

Match Preview

West Indies

West Indies' bowlers were so fluent in the first test that their bowling didn't even miss Keimar Roach who was out due to injury. Shanno Gabriel, Jason Holder, and Miguel Cummins trio did exceedingly well to wrap up Bangladesh's innings for just 43. Keimar Roach rattled through Bangladesh's lineup in the first innings. He was injured in the second innings, but the other bowlers didn't let his absence felt. Roach is expected to be fit and running for the second test, though.

Devon Smith finally got some runs after returning to the test arena against Sri Lanka. He had a fruitless couple of game against the Island nation, but a 123-ball 58 should give him a lot of confidence. A brilliant century by Brathwaite kept West Indies in front throughout the innings. Quick cameos by Roach and Holder took their total beyond 400 and the lead of more than 350 was too much to handle for Bangladesh.

West Indies have improved a lot since their last series against Sri Lanka. Although they lost the second match, their resurgence was evident in the series. West Indies will have to be cautious of Bangladesh and if they can do that, it's going to be yet another tough game for the Tigers.

West Indies Starting Lineup

Kraigg Brathwaite, Devon Smith, Kieran Powell, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Jason Holder, Keemo Paul, Miguel Cummins, Shannon Gabriel.

Bangladesh

The best part of the match for Bangladesh was their batsmen scoring a half-century on a decent batting wicket - such was their misery. In the first innings, all their batsmen could only muster a total of 43 runs with no one looking to stay at the wicket. Had it not been for the ninth wicket partnership between Nurul Hasan and Rubel Hossain, Bangladesh would have had a similar fate in the second innings as well. Out of a total of 144 in the second innings, Nurul and Rubel were responsible for 80.

Including their loss against Windies in the first test, Bangladesh have now lost five consecutive tests outside Asia. Their batsmen absolutely struggled to bat against the moving ball while their fast bowlers didn't have any clue of handling the moving ball. In the subcontinent conditions, where spinners play a vital role in friendly conditions, Bangladesh spinners are lethal at times. However, with no prior experience of operating in adverse conditions, their bowlers could not weave any magic and failed to do even a fractional of what the home team did to them.

With a loss as heavy as it was in the first test, we are bound to see a few players getting axed from the playing eleven. Rubel Hossain was unimpressive on a surface conducive to fast bowling and he might be the one to suffer the consequences. Although the odds are low, we may even see Imrul Kayes or Nazmul Hossain getting a place in the playing eleven. Regardless of their team combination, they'd be in for another tough game if they don't improve drastically.

Bangladesh Starting Lineup

Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Nurul Hasan, Mehidy Hasan, Taijul Islam, Abu Jayed, Kamrul Islam.

Toss Prediction

Kingston is one of the driest regions of West Indies and the surface is expected to break during the latter half of the test match. Batting last on this surface won't be easy and expect the team winning the toss to ba first.

Pitch and Conditions

Kingston is more of a kind of surface where there will be some assistance for spinners on the third, fourth, and fifth day of the match. The conditions of the final two days here would perfectly match the conditions at Dhaka. The temperatures will hover in the range of mid-thirties for the entire duration of the match and rain isn't likely to kill any time whatsoever. A total of 300-350 should be a good score in the first innings.

Our Prediction

With ODI series around the corner and a humiliating beating in their last match, Bangladesh would be already looking forward to the limited-overs leg of this tour. Their coach, Steve Rhodes, will have a massive role to play to instill confidence into the team. Windies, on the contrary, will be riding high on the waves of confidence and with that and the home advantage, they look all set to win the match and consequently the series.
