After winning the first Test by seven wickets at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound in Antigua, West Indies would be aiming for a series whitewash over Bangladesh when they take the field in the second Test match at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet in St Lucia from June 24. The match is scheduled to start at 7:30 PM IST.
Bangladesh have played a total of four Test series in West Indies, winning one in 2009. West Indies are currently ranked sixth in the WTC 2021-23 points table, while Bangladesh find themselves at the ninth spot.
As we gear up for the first Test, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the WI vs BAN 2nd Test head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the WI vs BAN head-to-head contest.
West Indies openers Kraigg Brathwaite (94) and John Campbell (24) stitched a 44-run partnership in the first innings of the first Test. In the second innings Brathwaite got out with just one run on the board. However, John Campbell went on to score 58 runs to secure a 7-wicket win over the visitors. Both the openers have runs under their belt now and scoring over 28 runs should not at all be difficult for the hosts who have now won three consecutive Test matches against Bangladesh. Prior to the first Test, the opening duo of Brathwaite and Campbell scored 50 runs together in the first innings against England at National Cricket Stadium, St George's, Grenada. The second innings saw them partner for 28 unbeaten runs. In the first of the same series against England, West Indies lost their first wicket at the score of 83 and 59 runs in the first and second innings respectively. Brathwaite has scores of 1, 94, 20*, 17, 56, 160, 33 and 55 in his last eight Test innings and is in tremendous form. Campbell has also chipped in with decent contributions and complimented his opening partner perfectly. The win in the first Test and West Indies' recent record against Bangladesh will further boost the confidence of Kraigg Brathwaite and John Campbell. West Indies look set for a solid start from their opening batters and scoring over 27.5 runs before the first dismissal should not at all be difficult for them.
