The Bengal Tigers continued with their bleak form that resulted in another crushing victory for the Windies in the first Test and the visitors will try to win the 2nd Test. Mushfiqur Rahim made a blunder while deciding to field after winning the toss though there was nothing wrong with the wicket. The Caribbeans got benefit of the verdict, piled up a massive total of 7-484 runs declared and the Bangladeshi batting was unable to overcome the huge score.
Kraigg Brathwaite smashed his maiden Test double hundred whereas the master blaster, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, remained unbeaten for 85 followed by fifties from Chris Gayle and Darren Bravo. Sulieman Benn, Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel and Jerome Taylor were unplayable in the opening Test.
The skipper of Bangladesh, Mushfiqur Rahim accumulated 164 runs in the previous game that included a brilliant ton in the second innings. Mominul Haque, Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah chipped in with fifty plus runs while Imrul Kayes and Nasir Hussain are required to contribute healthy runs. The debutant left arm spinner, Taijul Islam, excelled with five wickets but rest of their bowlers must stick to the task.
