After a blunder in the first test, the visitor will look to amend their wrongdoings in this second match at Sabina Park. Bangladesh were humbled by host, they wrapped up their 1st inning in just 43 runs. While in response West Indies set up a massive total of 406 runs, Kraigg Brathwaite’s ton helped the host to start digging the grave for the visitors. However, in the second innings, it was believed that the visitors would find some momentum but their terrible batting performance continued as they were 50-6 and finally lost the match by 219 runs and an innings. Here we see the probable dream XI for the WIndies:

West Indies: Devon Smith, Kemar Roach, Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieron Powell, Devendra Bishoo, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Shane Dowrich, Miguel Cummins, Shai Hope, Roston Chase

For Bangladesh, the big disappointments of Test cricket have generally been followed by the flickering of life with the white ball, results pulled out of the fire in the nick of time. Bangladesh have lost five straight Tests outside Asia- with the most recent 43 all-out in Antigua marking the absolute nadir. Bangladesh are to take the next big step as a Test side, 18 years after their initiation. The baby steps have to begin in Jamaica. Here are the probable dream 11 for the visitors:

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, Rubel Hossain, Mominul Haque, Kamrul Islam, Nurul Hasan, Abu Jayed, Liton Das, Mehidy Hasan
