Sher e Bangla Stadium in Mirpur
Bangladesh and India will take on each other in the 2nd test of the 2-match series at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur. India won the first test, which was dominated by the spinners, and it will be interesting to see how the pitch in Mirpur will behave in the 2nd test.
India opted to play with three spinners in the last match, and it was the right call. Kuldeep Yadav was excellent on his comeback, and he would want to continue playing in the same way. In the batting department, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara and Shreyas Iyer were the bright prospects.
Bangladesh loves playing in their home conditions, and they would be eager to make a comeback in this match. The spinners of the side possess a brilliant record here at this stadium, and they would want to show their magic on the field.
Sher-e-Bangla Stadium’s pitch is yet another typical subcontinent surface that is famous for its low and slow nature. The pitch is going to be a belter on the initial days of the match, and the spinners will come into play as the match will progress. The same was the case in Chattogram as well.
On the initial days, it will be an excellent track to bat on, and both sides would want to bat in that phase of the match. As the match will progress, the track will turn, and the spinners will dominate. It is unsurprising that the top-3 wicket-takers here are all spinners, and all three of them (Shakib al Hasan, Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan Miraz) will play together in this match for Bangladesh.
The average 1st innings score here is 341 runs, whereas the average 4th innings score is 180 runs, which clearly shows that batting first will be the preference of both teams upon winning the toss. The low bounce on the track can even help the pacers on the initial days.
