Pitch Report

The pacers will be key at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium with there being enough swing and bounce to keep them interested. The batters will have to work hard for their runs, but the pitch should ease out once they see out the new-ball phase. Spin could play a part in the second half of the Test, making for an intriguing contest between the bat and ball. Both teams will look to bowl first upon winning the toss and make good use of the conditions upfront.


Today’s WI vs BAN Dream11 match top picks

Wicketkeeper

Liton Das: Liton Das has been in brilliant form in the Test format this year, scoring 558 runs in six Tests despite batting in the lower-middle order. He has a decent technique against both pace and spin and can shift gears at will. Given the form that he is in, Liton is a good addition to your WI vs BAN Dream11 fantasy team.

Batters

Kraigg Brathwaite: Kraigg Brathwaite has been a reliable piece in the West Indies set-up for quite some time. The Windies captain has a good record in home conditions and was the highest run-scorer in their previous home series against England. With his knack for scoring big runs at the top of the order, Brathwaite should be one to watch out for in this game.

All-rounders

Shakib al Hasan: Although Shakib Al Hasan is all set to start another stint as Bangladesh captain, the focus will be on his all-round skill-set. The star all-rounder is one of the best players in the Test format with a good record with both the bat and ball. While the conditions may not favor the spinners, Shakib's experience and ability should hold him in good stead ahead of the game.

Bowlers

Jayden Seales: Jayden Seales is perhaps the brightest fast bowling prospect on the Windies circuit, with his performances for the national team also holding him in good stead. His ability to swing the ball and generate extra pace and bounce should serve him well on helpful wickets, making him a fine addition to your WI vs BAN Dream11 fantasy team.
