Captain Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad were unbeaten on 55 and 31 respectively. 

Debutant opener Shadman Islam scored a gritty half-century hitting 76 off 199 balls before he was trapped leg-before by Devendra Bishoo.

 

Tigers went into the game without any recognised fast bowler as they dropped Mustafizur Rahman and replaced him with additional batsman Liton Das.

 

Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur overcame concerns about his fitness to be included in the side. 

West Indies replaced suspended Shannon Gabriel with right-arm pacer Sherman Lewis.

 

The home side lead the two-Test series 1-0 thanks to their 64-run win in the opening Test in Chittagong.
