Match Preview – Bangladesh vs West Indies, West Indies in BDESH 2020/21, 1st Test

Big picture

On paper, this first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies looks a bit of a mismatch. The tourists don’t have a bunch of their regulars, including their captain, and are taking on a team that dominates most at home. Bangladesh’s spin-heavy attack and experienced batsmen are expected to steamroll West Indies just as they did in 2018, but this is a side that will play its first Test in close to 12 months.

That should give West Indies a bit of an advantage. Some of their players have played Test cricket since the Covid-19 pandemic started – overall, they have played five Tests since then – unlike the Bangladeshis. But, at the same time, they are bereft of a lot of experience. Not to mention that they have lost four out of those five Tests, in England and in New Zealand, while winning just one.
