TE24 Sports Desk:
After losing by seven wickets in the main Test, Bangladesh will have to make a strong comeback in the second Test against the West Indies at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St. Lucia’s Gross Islet on Friday.
The Heaters disappointed Antigua when they gained six ducks in the main innings of the match and could not return for the next inning.
Shakib Al Hasan, the newly-appointed captain of Bangladesh’s Test group, has made one fifty in each innings, with the exception of several players who have been neglected to go with him.
After the main match, Shakib said the hitters should come forward to end their lead through Test failure.
Kemar Roach, the host’s top pacer, needed five wickets in Bangladesh’s second innings in the main match. The Tigers have to do well against him to bring positive results.
The Tigers can make some changes in the next match. Left-arm player Mominul Haque has been neglecting to do well for some time. In his last 10 innings, he experienced four ducks and even failed to reach a single double-digit all-out.
The former head of Bangladesh may lose his place in the next match. If the group executives give him another chance to go, Anamul Haque, who added Nazmul Hossain Shant to the crew for the next Test, may be ready for victory. Shanto is also going through a very difficult time for some time. Despite a few decent starts in the innings, he is neglecting to turn that innings completely into huge numbers.
Left-arm pacer Shariful Islam could get a chance in the next Test along with Anamul. This pacer was essential for Bangladesh’s limited overs teams. However, he is also currently on the Test squad.
In the main match, Bangladesh managed three fast bowlers Mostafizur Rahman, Khaled Ahmed and Ebadat Hossain. To clear a path for Sharfiul, the group executives could rest Ebadat who picked up two wickets in the main match.
The series is part of the ICC World Test Championship. Recently, Bangladesh has won only one match against New Zealand on this occasion.
After the two-match Test series, the two groups will secure the horns in the three-match ODI and three-match T20 series.
