After winning the toss, West Indies decided to bowl first. What happened with Bangladesh was not much different than in the first test. The team started to fold early on. They lost back-to-back wickets. Even though Tamim Iqbal tried in the beginning but couldn’t hold the end for much longer.

After smashing a Mayers delivery for a four, Bangladesh‘s captain Shakib Al Hasan was bowled by Jayden Seales. When Nurul Hasan was removed by an Alzarri Joseph short ball. Bangladesh faced another setback. Litton Das was playing strongly and confidently striking boundaries. For the remainder of the post-lunch session, Litton and Mehidy Hasan played cautiously to prevent Bangladesh from losing any more wickets. Litton Das scored the highest score 53 runs.

West Indies struck at regular intervals, leaving the visitors at 156/6 at tea on Friday (June 24). Bangladesh lost four wickets for only 33 runs during the second session.
