Bangladesh vs West Indies – 2nd Test Betting Tips

West Indies will be looking for a historic series win when they take on Bangladesh in the second and final game of the Test series at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Thursday.

Host Bangladesh will rue the fact that they should have bowled better on the final day of the Chattogram Test. The home side will be sweating over the fitness of all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who suffered from a thigh injury during the first Test. Captain Mominul Haque might be looking to make changes to their playing XI for the series finale.

The visitors lead the two-match series 1-0 thanks to their highest fourth-innings chase in the subcontinent in the first Test played in Chattogram. A win in Dhaka will give West Indies their first Test series in Bangladesh after nine years. Captain Kraigg Brathwaite will be hoping that the side can maintain their winning momentum in this contest.

Bangladesh Form and Team News

The home side will be looking to make one or two changes to their playing XI in a bid to level the two-match Test series. Medium-pacer Hasan Mahmud could make his Test debut for the side in this fixture, which means Najmul Hossain Shanto could be dropped from the final XI.

Middle-order batsman Mohammad Mithun could come into the playing XI if Shakib fails to clear the fitness test for the final game.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the experienced players like Tamim Iqbal, Mominul Haque, and Mushfiqur Rahim to deliver notable scores in this must-win game.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Despite losing the toss first Test, Bangladesh will see the result as an aberration and will be looking to make a strong comeback in this final game of the series.

With all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan suffering from a thigh injury during the Chattogram Test, the likes of Mustafizur Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal, and Mominul Haque will need to deliver the goods with bat and ball.

On the other hand, West Indies will need to guard against complacency against Bangladesh, who are a formidable unit in their home conditions.
