Shakib returns to Test side for WI series

January 30 2021

Shakib was under an injury cloud
Shakib was under an injury cloud
All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan returns to Bangladesh Test team as he has been named in the 18-member squad for the upcoming two-match Test series against West Indies.

There was an injury cloud over Shakib, who had picked up a groin injury during the final ODI. Although the BCB physician remained optimistic about hisavailability for the Tests with scans not indicating any tear in the groin region, Shakib did not to join his team-mates for the practice sessions ahead of the Tests until Saturday (January 30).

'Shakib is desperate to play. 'We are confident that he will be available for the Test series. We are waiting to see how he feels after bowling tomorrow (Sunday) as he has just batted today,'' he said. "It's Test cricket and that is why we are confident because he can have rest in between unlike in T20s or ODIs where you are playing with the same intensity.''

Bangladesh had earlier named a 20-member provisional Test squad, which had been practising since the conclusion of the ODI series while Shakib opted to rest. But he did take part in the session on Saturday, although he batted mostly against the spinners in the nets while the others were involved in match scenarios.

But his presence in the condensed squad is an indication that the 33-year-old has recovered sufficiently and is likely to play a role in the Tests. Nurul Hasan and Khaled Ahmed are the ones left out from the provisional squad named while Shadman Islam, who missed the Zimbabwe series, is also on the comeback trail.

The first Test is scheduled to begin on February 3 in Chattogram while the second Test will be played in Dhaka from February 11. This will be Bangladesh's first Test assignment since their innings victory against Zimbabwe at home in February 2020.

Squad: Mominul Haque (c), Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Najmul Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammed Mithun, Liton Das, Yasir Ali, Saif Hassan, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Shadman Islam, Nayeem Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Zayed, Ebadat Hossain, Hasan Mahmud

Out of Test rhythm, but Bangladesh still hold all the aces against weakened West Indies https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/wes ... ch-preview


03-FEB-2021, 09:00 Am


1st Test, Chattogram, Feb 3 - Feb 7 2021, West Indies tour of Bangladesh



PREVIEW

Out of Test rhythm, but Bangladesh still hold all the aces against weakened West Indies
Shakib Al Hasan's return lends balance to the hosts, who haven't played Test cricket in almost a year


Shakib Al Hasan's return will bring with it the balance Bangladesh XIs have lacked of late

Big picture

On paper, this first Test between Bangladesh and West Indies looks a bit of a mismatch. The tourists don't have a bunch of their regulars, including their captain, and are taking on a team that dominates most at home. Bangladesh's spin-heavy attack and experienced batsmen are expected to steamroll West Indies just as they did in 2018, but this is a side that will play its first Test in close to 12 months.

That should give West Indies a bit of an advantage. Some of their players have played Test cricket since the Covid-19 pandemic started - overall, they have played five Tests since then - unlike the Bangladeshis. But, at the same time, they are bereft of a lot of experience. Not to mention that they have lost four out of those five Tests, in England and in New Zealand, while winning just one.

Tamim's opening partner still a riddle

Joshua Da Silva prepares for his time in the limelight

West Indies' batting will depend heavily on Jermaine Blackwood, captain Kraigg Brathwaite, and John Campbell. Blackwood's 95 in the Southampton Test last year was the high point in his comeback to Test cricket, and he has been West Indies' highest run-getter in the last 12 months. Brathwaite, despite some patchy form of late, has often batted long and well against Bangladesh, while Campbell has shown recent form in New Zealand and during the three-day practice game against a BCB XI.

Among the bowlers, Shannon Gabriel has been the frontman for the last three years, and their most successful bowler in these five Tests, where he has taken 17 wickets. Kemar Roach and Alzarri Joseph are expected to support him but it is likely that the spinners, especially offspinner Rahkeem Cornwall, will be entrusted with a lion's share of the job in Chattogram. Cornwall's 7 for 75 against Afghanistan in Lucknow was 14 months ago, but he picked up a five-for in the tour match last week, and should be high on confidence.

Bangladesh, meanwhile, won the ODI series 3-0 a week ago, but Test cricket's rhythm will be different, even for experienced cricketers. It is likely that the pitch at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium will be a batting paradise for the first couple of days, before slowing down.

That will encourage Bangladesh to revert to their best plan of action - a four-man spin attack, after having picked two seamers in their last home Test. Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan will lead an attack that also includes Nayeem Hasan, who took nine wickets in their last Test. Bangladesh is also likely to prefer a second left-arm spinner to support the returning Shakib. Coach Russell Domingo has indicated that Mustafizur Rahman would be selected, after impressing the coaching staff with his new inswinger into the right-hander.

Their batting, as is usually the case, will depend heavily on Tamim Iqbal, Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim, but runs will be expected from opener Saif Hassan, who hasn't played his breakout Test innings yet, and Najmul Hossain Shanto.

Form guide

Last five completed matches, most recent first

Bangladesh: WLLLL

West Indies: LLLLW

In the spotlight

With scores of 44 and 68, John Campbell showed form during West Indies' warm-up match last week against the BCB XI. Campbell also scored a half-century in their last Test, so in the absence of many regulars, he will have to put a big price tag on his wicket.

Liton Das is likely to bat at No. 7, which might give Bangladesh a stroke-player around the time the second new-ball is available. He will be expected to make substantial contributions even when batting with the lower-order - not like his 36 runs in the three ODIs.

Team news

Bangladesh could go for a straightforward four-man spin attack with Rahman as the lone pacer. A fit Shakib will take Mohammad Mithun's place in the middle-order while Mehidy, Taijul Islam and Nayeem Hasan should be natural choices on a pitch that would require patient and skilful bowling.

Bangladesh (possible): 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Saif Hassan, 3 Najmul Hossain Shanto, 4 Mominul Haque (capt), 5 Mushfiqur Rahim, 6 Shakib Al Hasan, 7 Liton Das (wk), 8 Mehidy Hasan, 9 Nayeem Hasan, 10 Taijul Islam, 11 Mustafizur Rahman

West Indies would likely have fielded a different bowling attack to the one that did duty in their last Test, in Wellington, but now their hand has been forced. Coach Phil Simmons is faced with balancing the attack with right number of spinners, while Nkrumah Bonner and Kyle Mayers seem certain for Test debuts.

West Indies (possible): 1 Kraigg Brathwaite (capt), 2 John Campbell, 3 Nkrumah Bonner, 4 Jermaine Blackwood 5 Joshua Da Silva (wk), 6 Kyle Mayers, 7 Rahkeem Cornwall, 8 Raymon Reifer/Alzarri Joseph, 9 Jomel Warrican, 10 Kemar Roach, 11 Shannon Gabriel

Pitch and conditions

The average first-innings score at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is 370, which indicates a batsman-friendly venue. There won't be much for fast bowlers, and spinners should call the shots after the first couple of days. There's good weather in store with moderate temperatures in Chattogram.

Stats and trivia


Mominul Haque has scored six centuries in nine Tests at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. He averages 75.42 at the venue.

West Indies lost their last two Tests by innings defeats; the last time they suffered three innings defeats in a row was in 1931.

Brathwaite has played 15 Tests in Asia, the most in this West Indies squad.

Quotes

"I think Bangladesh will always have the edge no matter who they are playing at home, even though they haven't played (Test) cricket for a year. They are a very strong side when they play at home. You can have lack of international cricket but you will be training properly. It takes away the rust, which is only a mental thing. It will go away after the first couple of hours of the first day."

West Indies coach Phil Simmons doesn't think the gap will hurt Bangladesh

"Our performance in Tests in the last couple of years hasn't been that good but it is something that we are really trying to rectify. We spoke long and hard about it after the Pakistan Test. I feel that we are definitely moving in the right direction. It is the start of a process for us in Tests, and the results are very important."

Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo thinks the future is bright
