Bangladesh to take on West Indies in the second Test in Dhaka

Dhaka, Feb 10 (AFP/APP): Four days after crashing to one of the most astonishing defeats in Test cricket history, Bangladesh take on the West Indies in the second Test in Dhaka on Thursday knowing they must win to square the two-match series.

The shock waves of Sunday‘s defeat in Chattogram, which saw the West Indies make 395-7 in the fourth innings to record the fifth-highest successful run chase in the 144-year history of Test cricket, were still being felt among the Bangladesh set-up on Wednesday.

The mood around the hosts was not improved by the news that their injury list has grown. Talismanic all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and opening batsman Shadman Islam were both ruled out of the Test in the capital with thigh and hip injuries respectively.

Skipper Mominul Haque said on Wednesday they were trying to put Sunday‘s nightmare when Kyle Mayers scored 210 not out in the West Indies run chase, behind them. “What happened, happened,” said Mominul. “It’s better we don’t think much about that.

We want to take positives from the match and move on.” Mominul’s second innings century, his tenth in Test cricket, was one of those high points as was the all-round performance of Mehidy Hasan Miraz who made 108 batting at eight in the first innings and took four wickets in each of the West Indies innings with his off-spin.
