Bangladesh bowl first against WI

DHAKA: Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bowl first in the first Test match against West Indies at Arnos Vale ground, Kingstown Friday.  

A few things to look forward to ahead of toss. For the visitors the make-up of their top-order has been a topic of debate. They used four openers in their top four during the one-dayers. Then there's the curious case of Mominul Haque, who always seems stuck in the sidelines 

Tigers hope to do well in the test match series under the new coach Chandika Hathurusingha, bowling coach Heath Streak and trainer Mario Villavarayan. 

It has been while since Bangladesh played a Test match. The last time was against Sri Lanka in February.

On the other hand, West Indies recently lost a 3-match series to New Zealand 2-1.

Bangladesh Squad:

Tamim Iqbal, Shamsur Rahman, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim*†, Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Shuvagata Hom, Taijul Islam, Al-Amin Hossain, Rubel Hossain

West Indies Squad:

CH Gayle, KC Brathwaite, KA Edwards, DM Bravo, S Chanderpaul, J Blackwood, D Ramdin*†, KAJ Roach, JE Taylor, SJ Benn, ST Gabriel.
