The last five test matches (only those that have produced results) played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium have all been won by the side batting first.

BAN Team News
Bangladesh have named a 13-man squad for the second test and have omitted Imrul Kayes who has been rested because of a shoulder injury. Uncapped batsman Shadman Islam has been picked as Imrul’s replacement and he will be partnering Soumya Sarkar at the opening position. Tamim Iqbal continues to remain an absentee as he is still recovering from a side strain he had sustained before the start of this test series.
BAN Key Players
Mominul Haque was the star performer with the bat for Bangladesh at Chittagong. The top-order batsman scored 120 runs in the first innings and the team will be expecting another quality knock from him. Mushfiqur Rahim has a century and six fifties at the Shere Bangla in this format and he too is a key figure in this line-up. Soumya Sarkar will look to cement his place in the team with a strong performance and the absence of Imrul Kayes will put more responsibility on his shoulders. Shakib Al Hasan will be a threat with both bat and ball. The all-rounder is the leading run-getter as well as the leading wicket-taker at this ground in tests. Apart from Shakib, Bangladesh’s bowling will rely on Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan. Taijul took the game away from the Windies with an outstanding six-wicket haul in the second innings and the left-arm spinner is likely to trouble them again at a ground where he has taken 35 wickets from 6 test matches.

The 64-run victory in the last game at Chittagong was Bangladesh’s second win in the seven test matches they have played this year and the first test win against the West Indies at home. The hosts put up a good batting performance in the first innings as they posted 324 but will be disappointed with their effort in the second innings as they could manage just 125. Prior to this match, Bangladesh had registered a thumping 218-run win over Zimbabwe at Dhaka.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11
WI Team News
West Indies have lost their premier fast bowler Shannon Gabriel for the second test as he has been handed a one-test suspension by the ICC on account of poor on-field behavior. Pacer Shermon Lewis, who has just one test match under his belt, seems likely to replace Gabriel in the starting eleven. The rest of the line-up is expected to remain the same.
WI Key Players
West Indies will back their top three – Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell and Shai Hope – to step up and deliver with the bat. Brathwaite is the leading run-scorer for his side in test cricket from the current squad while Powell has two hundreds and a half-century from two tests at the Shere Bangla. Shimron Hetmyer struck 63 in the first innings and the team’s middle order batting will rely largely on him. Among the bowlers, it will be up to the likes of Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach and Jomel Warrican to take wickets. The Windies will be without their strike bowler Shannon Gabriel which means the onus will be on Roach to provide the early breakthroughs. Bishoo claimed a four-fer in the second innings. The leg-spinner also has eight wickets in the only test he has played at this ground and he will pose the biggest challenge for the Bangladeshi batsmen. The home team will also be wary of left-arm spinner Warrican who finished with a match-haul of six wickets.
WI Recent Form
West Indies have now lost four, won three and drawn one out of the eight test matches they have played since the start of this year. The Windies had won both the tests against Bangladesh at home earlier in July, but since then, they have suffered heavy defeats in each of their next three matches. The visitors clawed back into the game at Chittagong with a superb bowling display in the second innings but their batsmen faltered big time in their chase of 203.
West Indies Predicted Playing 11
- Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Kieran Powell, Shai Hope, Sunil Ambris, Roston Chase, Shimron Hetmyer, Shane Dowrich (wk), Devendra Bishoo, Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican, Shermon Lewis

West Indies vs Bangladesh Betting Odds

Bangladesh vs West Indies Prediction
The Shere Bangla has hosted 18 test matches till date out of which only three have produced a draw. And with the wicket expected to get difficult for batting on the final two days, a draw seems to be the least likely outcome here.
Bangladesh will be going into this match high on confidence after taking a lead in the series while the West Indies find themselves under pressure as they need to win this match in order to prevent a series defeat. The visitors were bamboozled by the Bangladeshi spinners at Chittagong and they are likely to struggle against them at Dhaka as well. The hosts have won three of their last four tests at this ground which includes wins against the likes of England and Australia. Bangladesh are stronger in these conditions and so we predict them to complete a 2-0 whitewash of the Windies.
Final Verdict: Back Bangladesh to beat West Indies in the second test at 1.55 on Betway, 1.57 on Bet365 and 1.60 on Betfair.
