ban vs wi Match Prediction & Analysis

Test Cricket has made its return to the field with 8 of the 9 teams playing their matches after the pandemic halt. Bangladesh is the only team that is yet to play a test after the pandemic and they are all set play the game now in their home yard. West Indies were impressive in the recent test matches but will miss some of their key players for this tour. They will look to win this match and show some results in the test arena. Bangladesh on the other hand are yet to open their account in ICC Test Championship and will look to defeat West Indies in their home grounds and open their account.

Teams Preview

Bangladesh Preview

Mominul Haque will lead the Bangladesh side in this series. Shakib Al Hasan returns to the squad alongside the experienced likes of Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mehidy Hasan. Najmul Shanto, Liton Das, and Mohammed Mithun will form the core of middle order batting alongside the other experienced players.

We expect Bangladesh to pile their playing XI with spinners Taijul islam, Nayeen hasan alongside all-rounder duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Mehdi Hasan. Abu Jayed, Taskin Ahmed, and Mustafizur Rahman are the pace bowlers in the squad and we expect two of them to feature in the starting XI in this match.  

Top players to bet on:

Mushfiqur Rahim – Rahim is the most experienced player in Bangladesh side and he has scored a double century in the last test match played.  He is a batsmen who can score big runs once he is seta and will look to make a big score in this match too.

Taijul Islam – Taijul Islam lead the bowling attack in the absence of Shakib and will look to continue his good performance with the ball in this series too.  He has 93 wickets in just 19 matches in his home soil so far.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Liton Das (wk), Tamim Iqbal, Najumul Shanto, Mominul Haque (c), Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Mehdi hasan, Taijul Islam, Mayeen Hasan, Abu Jayed, Taskin Ahmed/Mustafizur Rahman

West Indies Preview

Kraigg Brathwaite will lead the team in absence of regular players in the team. Jermaine Blackwood, John Campbell, Joshua De Silva, and Rakheem Cornwall will form the core of the batting line-up in this series. Nkurumah Bonner and Kyle Mayers are expected to make his test debut in this match.

Shannon Gabriel and Kemar Roach are expected to slot in as the first preferred choice of the pace bowlers in the team. Jomel Warrican and Veerasamy Permual are expected to slot in as the spin duo in the team alongside Cornwall. West Indies will have a lot of bowling options in their team owing to the presence of many all-rounders.

Top players to bet on:

Jermaine Blackwood – Blackwood is one of the most improved batsmen with his recent performances in England & New Zeeland in tough conditions. We expect him to continue his good showing in this series too.  

Rakheem Cornwall – Cornwall is expected to lead the spin attack despite the full-time spinners. He impressed with a 10-wicket haul in his only match in the cub-continent so far.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Jermaine Blackwood, John Campbell, Joshua De Silva (wk), Rakheem Cornwall, Nkurumah Bonner, Kyle Mayers, Jomel Warrican, Veerasamy Permual, Shannon Gabriel, Veerasamy Perumal

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Hr Temp Rain W. speed W. direction Clouds

Weather Conditions

Chittagong is expected to have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with very less to no chances of weather interruptions as per weather forecasters on all five days.

Venue Details

Chittagong is spin friendly track where the pacers might take the backseat playing the support act`s role. We expect scores to be around 300-400 runs in the first innings while the scores to come down to 200-range in the second innings.

Toss: To Bat

Batting first is the safe option in the sub continental tracks as batting becomes very difficult in the fourth innings of the match. We expect both teams to bat first if they win the toss.

BAN vs WI Winning Prediction

Bangladesh has been a strong side in their home conditions recently and they have a good mix of spin bowling attack to take advantage of the conditions.  They also are more experienced in terms of batting and bowling departments when compared to current West Indies team. West Indies will expect their bench strength to fill the void left by regular players and push their case for selection in the national team. But, we expect Bangladesh to win this match and put their first points on board.

Bangladesh will win the match
