When and where:
Bangladesh is on a complete tour of West Indies to play Test, ODI, and T20I. Both the nations will play a total of 3 ODIs, 2 Tests and 3 T20Is. The tour will kick-start with the two matches test series starting tomorrow with the first match scheduled at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua. The match will begin at 07:30 PM IST.
The two matches series is an opportunity for the hosts to improve their rating and place themselves above Bangladesh who is placed at 8th rank with 75 ratings. Windies is placed just below at 9th rank with 72 ratings and can get back to 8th rank if they manage to win the series.
While Bangladesh is missing out their ace pacer Mustafizur Rahman who is still recovering from toe injury, Windies are looking slightly ahead of the visitors with the likes of Shanon Gabriel who took 20 wickets in the series against Sri Lanka.
