Bangladesh vs West Indies BAN vs WI 2nd Test: The second Test between West Indies and Bangladesh begins on Thursday (February 10) at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. The visitors will be looking to keep the winning momentum despite missing a few players. The match will be scheduled at 9:00 AM IST. Check out the Bangladesh vs West Indies 2nd Test match preview including pitch report, playing 11, injury updates, and Dream11 team as underlined in the article.

Both Bangladesh and West Indies aren't in contention to reach the World Test Championship (WTC) final to be played at Lord's this year. Notably, they never had a shot at it. In the absence of Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh will be highly dependable on Tamim Iqbal to make an impact in the final Test. 

On the other hand, the visitors were gunned by debutant Kyle Mayers, who surprised all by pulling off the tallest run chase in Asia. The all-rounder scored a mesmerizing unbeaten double-hundred (210 off 310) to help West Indies chase down an improbable 395-run target in the opening Test played at the same venue.

From Bangladesh's point of view, Shakib Al Hasan picked up a thigh strain in the first Test and now has been ruled out of the series. Just after that young Shadman Islam has been also ruled out because of a hip injury. Bangladesh have already added Soumya Sarkar to their squad as cover. While the visitors are unlikely to make any change to their lineup.
