After winning the toss, West Indies made the most of a slow surface on the first session of the second Test with openers Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell putting on 66 for the first wicket. Campbell, who was doing the bulk of the scoring in that opening stand, was the only wicket to fall in the session when he was deemed out lbw in contentious fashion.

Campbell’s dismissal came in the 21st over when he looked to sweep left-arm spinner Taijul Islam. Bowling from around the stumps, Taijul got a full ball to angle in, go under the bat, and hit Campbell’s front leg. Umpire Sharfuddoula then raised his finger but Campbell reviewed. The decision then went to TV umpire Gazi Sohel, who tried to determine if the ball grazed the bottom edge of the bat during Campbell’s sweep. But umpire Sohel said there was no bat involved – despite a small deviation on UltraEdge, which could also have been generated by the on-ground noise – and upheld the on-field decision to send Campbell back for 36. A few balls later, West Indies coach Phil Simmons could be seen talking to the reserve umpire Masudur Rahman near the boundary line, perhaps wanting to know more about how the TV umpire reached his decision.
