Bangladesh will be led by veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, but the visitors look depleted in the absence of Mushfiqur Rahim, Taskin Ahmed and Shoriful Islam. Rahim, who became Bangladesh’s first batter to score 5000 Test runs during the Bangladesh series, opted Hajj pilgrimage; while Ahmed and Islam are injured. And joining the injury list is Yasir Ali.

This is Bangladesh’s penultimate series in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 cycle. After the high of Test win in New Zealand early in the year, they lost successive series against South Africa and Sri Lanka.

West Indies have rested former captain Jason Holder, while veteran pacer Kemar Roach availability remains uncertain. But the Kraigg Brathwaite-led side, having beaten England in their previous series, are confident of pulling off another win and have named three uncapped players – wicketkeeper batter Devon Thomas, left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie and pacer Anderson Phillip – in the squad.
