When and where:
Bangladesh will take on Windies in the first test match the two teams will be playing in this series, on (November 22) at Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Pahartali.
The hosts Bangladesh will be looking to assert their dominance in this series. They are slowly but surely becoming a side who has the genuine mettle and ability in the longest format of the game. It will be interesting to see how things turn out for the Asian side. There is still a lot of room for them to improve, but the fact that except for India other sides from the subcontinent are crumbling will help them in the ascension of ranking.
However, Windies are still trying to get a team that will be well enough in the test matches. They are exceptionally strong in the short formats of the game. But, it is in Test Matches when their best players go missing. Windies dominated the cricketing world for a good part of the decade in the 1970s. The talent is still there. The lacking experience is been sought after, and it will fixtures like these that will help them build a team.
The match will begin at 9:00 AM IST.
