Second Test Preview: Bangladesh vs. West Indies
Second Test Preview: Bangladesh vs. West Indies

After the spinners made light work of Windies batsmen in the dust bowl at Chittagong, the caravan shifts to Dhaka where the conditions are very similar. Another trial by spin awaits the West Indies who had suffered in India against the spinners and now continue to be tormented by the Bangladesh spinners.

Bangladesh walked away with a win at Chittagong courtesy a four-pronged spin attack comprising Shakib-al-Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam and Nayeem Hasan, the latest addition. Their batting wasn't too impressive and it will be one thing the hosts look to rectify ahead of the second Test.

Conditions: Hot day, little rain threat and another dusty bowl

Player Recommendations:


Wicket-keeper: Mushfiqur Rahim (10.5 points)

The Bangladesh wicket-keeper is one of the batting mainstays in the line-up and has the potential to make those daddy hundreds which push you to the top of the fantasy league. Rahim is a great pick in these conditions and offers a lot with his batting capabilities from the middle-order. With spinners working hard, he could give you a few points from behind the stumps too.

Batsman: Kraigg Brathwaite (9.5 points)

West Indies need reliability in their batting and none offers that more than Kraigg Brathwaite who is a stupendous, unstoppable Test batsman once he gets going. Brathwaite is a great pick, albeit a risky one in these conditions but he is due a big one and it could well materialise at Dhaka.

All-rounder: Shakib-al-Hasan (10 points)

With all-round skills and a great return
