Bangladesh would start a tough tour as they take on West Indies in the 1st Test match of the two-match series at the Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua. The visitors come here with a series loss against Sri Lanka at home and shall look to bounce back with a strong performance. West Indies has won the last series at home against England, and this would add to the side’s confidence.
The Bangladesh team has had a poor record against West Indies on the latter’s turf. They have just two Test matches and have generally struggled in away conditions. Their batsmen are likely to have a tough time and the fragile middle-order shall need to deliver a strong show. The hosts are fielding several young players for this series, and it would make this game interesting.
Kraigg Brathwaite shall be confident about the prospects of his side going into this game. They have done well at home in recent years and the series win against England a few months back would add to the side’s confidence. Brathwaite shall expect a strong show from his batsmen as the Bangladeshi attack can surprise any opponent. They will look to play their natural game and take an early lead in the series.
Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell had done well as a pair against England, and they would look to offer a good start in this game. Nkrumah Bonner has done well over the last 12 months and has become the backbone of the side. He makes this middle order strong with Jermaine Blackwood and Kyle Mayers. They would also expect runs from Joshua Da Silva and Raymon Reifer in this game.
Jayden Seales and Alzarri Joseph shall have to strike early in this game as the Bangladeshi top order is likely to struggle in these conditions. Anderson Phillip is expected to make his debut in this game, and he will look to bowl good lines along with Raymon Reifer. Gudakesh Motie is the lone spinner in the team and shall look forward to using the slow conditions well.

Shakib Al Hasan takes over as skipper of the side for the third time in his career as Mominul Haque stepped down after the series loss against Sri Lanka at home. It will be a big challenge for the side as they have won just one Test match in West Indies in the past. Their bowling attack isn’t looking in the best form Shakib would need to lead from the front for his side to do well in this game.
Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudul Hasan Joy had scored runs against Sri Lanka and the pair would have to see off the new ball in this game. Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mominul Haque had a bad series, and they have to play well in the middle order given the track is expected to be tricky to bat on. The lower middle order is experienced with Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, and Shakib Al Hasan to follow and the trio would have an important role in this game.
Their bowlers would have to make good use of the conditions and early wickets would be expected from Mustafizur Rahman and Ebadot Hossain. They will have to deliver early wickets in this game and put the hosts under pressure. Khaleel Ahmed didn’t do well against Sri Lanka a lot would be expected from him. Shakib and Taijul Islam are experienced spinners, and they will enjoy bowling on a slow track.

There would be partly overcast skies over Antigua on all days of the game starting June 16. We expect to see a good batting surface on the first two days of the game, and it would start to crumble and aid spinners as the game progresses. The average 1st innings score here is 287 runs and the side batting first would be happy to put up 400 runs on the board.
Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua has a slow surface, and it poses a challenge for the batsmen. Batsmen must get accustomed to the pace of the surface before playing their strokes on this surface. There is some assistance for the fast bowlers with the new ball. The slow nature of the surface makes it a happy hunting ground for the spinners.
This pitch is known for getting tricky as the game progresses and batsmen find it difficult to bat here on Day 4 and 5. Both the captains shall have this in their minds at the toss and the one winning the toss should have no hesitation in opting to bat first in the game.
Bangladesh faces a tough challenge in this game. They come here with a series loss and have always struggled away from home. The fast-bowling attack doesn’t inspire much confidence going into this game. The form of their middle-order would be crucial for the side to win this game. West Indies are playing at home and know the conditions well. They have a better fast bowling attack, and this would make them favorites to win this game.
