Mominul dropped as Tigers asked to bat first in 2nd Test

Axe was finally fallen on Mominul Haque following his poor batting form as Bangladesh were invited to bat first in the second and final Test after West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite won the toss at Darren Sammy Stadium in St Lucia on Friday.
Mominul's lean batting streak extended to ninth straight single digit figure after he scored just 0 and 4 in the both innings of the first Test that Bangladesh lost by seven wickets.
Mominul, however, stepped down from the captaincy ahead of the series to regain his batting form but it still didn't help him, leaving the team management helpless as Bangladesh continued to suffer from top order collapse, BSS reports.

Anamul Haque Bijoy who was called up in the Test squad after eight years replaced Mominul. Coincidently Anamul played his last Test at this very venue in 2014.

Bangladesh made another change from the first Test as Mustafizur Rahman was dropped to make way for another left arm pacer Shoriful Islam.

West Indies have made one change to their XI with Gudakesh Motie making way for Anderson Phillip, who makes his debut in this match.

West Indies

Kraigg Brathwaite(c), John Campbell, Raymon Reifer, Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Kyle Mayers, Joshua Da Silva(w), Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales, Anderson Phillip.


Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Anamul Haque, Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan(c), Nurul Hasan(w), Mehidy Hasan, Khaled Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam.
