1st Test, Preview: West Indies vs Bangladesh at Antigua
July 3 (CRICKETNMORE) - West Indies will take on Bangladesh in the first test of the 2 test series on Wednesday at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. The home side had a good show against Sri Lanka in which they lost the third of three Tests for the series to be drawn 1-1, but performed well for the most part.
On the other hand, Bangladesh, meanwhile, haven’t played much Test cricket of late. When they did earlier this year, against Sri Lanka at home, they lost 1-0.
West Indies will start the series at No.9 in the latest ICC Test Team Rankings, just behind their opponents, but a 2-0 series win will take them above Bangladesh to No.8, and that’s on their radar.
