BAN vs WI Dream11 Predictions

Windies tour of Bangladesh, 2018 | Bangladesh vs Windies, 2nd Test | BAN vs WI Who Will Win

The Big Picture

After scripting, a memorable win in the first Test hosts Bangladesh will lock to seal the series when they take on the Windies in the second Test on Friday.


The first Test saw Bangladesh’s troika of spinners- one a veteran, who became the quickest to complete a double of 3000 runs and 200 wickets and two teenage prodigies in Taijul Islam [6-33] and 17-year-old Nayeem Islam [5-61]- the youngest spinner to take a Test five-wicket haul, spin a web around the Windies, bowling them out for 246 and 139.

But, on a turner masquerading as a Test match pitch, Mominul Haque’s 120 was the real differentiator between both sides.


Going into the second Test, Bangladesh announced a 13-man squad with Shadman Islam after Imrul Kayes was rested because of shoulder pain.

For the Windies, while their bowling was generally good with Gabriel [4-70], Bishoo and Worrican plugging in the hole left by the injury of their Skipper, the batting has been a real let down with their inability to bat for long hours being their nemesis. Only Shimron Hetmeyar (63), Shane Dowrich (63) and Sunil Ambris (27) to some extent in the second innings offered any substantial resistance.

Their abject surrender with the bat resulted in their maiden Test loss to the hosts in Bangladesh and will need to find a way to counter the spin threat if they are to make comeback in the series.

Bowlers – Nayeem Hasan and Taijul Islam claimed a five-wicket haul in the last game while Jomel Worrican too had a great game.
