Windies, Tigers set for series decider

Dhaka, Bangladesh - Bangladesh and the West Indies are expected to face a somewhat slow and dry pitch when they meet for the series-deciding second and final Test match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

On the eve of the match the surface looked a bit drier than the one the two sides played on during the T20 International and two One-Day Internationals earlier this month. However, West Indies skipper Darren Sammy preferred to focus on his team’s readiness for the match rather than the pitch.

He held four catches and completed a stumping as play in the rain-affected first Test resumed after two days were lost to the inclement weather.
