The second Test match between West Indies and Bangladesh will be played from June 24-29 at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia.

The multi-format series will see the two sides play three T20Is and as many ODIs after the final Test. The hosts West Indies won the first Test by seven wickets to take an unassailable 1-0 lead.

The second and final game of the series will be crucial for Bangladesh as they look to draw level. With the series being a part of the 2021-23 ICC World Test Championship, vital points are also up for grabs. West Indies will aim to seal the series 2-0.

Bangladesh were bundled out for a paltry 103 in the first innings of the opening Test. Skipper Shakib Al Hasan was the lone warrior, scoring 51 runs. The pace trio of Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales and Alzarri Joseph fired for West Indies, picking up eight wickets amongst themselves.

A half-century from skipper Kraigg Brathwaite and Jermaine Blackwood helped West Indies put up 265 runs on the board in reply. Mehidy Hasan was the pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh with four wickets. Shakib Al Hasan scored another fifty in the second innings as the visitors got to 245.

However, West Indies got home with ease in the end, finishing 88/3 with John Campbell unbeaten on 58. They will aim to repeat their all-round performance while Bangladesh are under pressure to make a strong comeback. Pacer Shoriful Islam returning to the side will be a boost for them.
