BAN vs WI Dream11 Prediction: The first Test of 2 Match series between Bangladesh and West Indies will be played on Wednesday, February 2 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Spinners have ruled the roost in the previous Test series and it shouldn’t be any different in this fixture as well. Batsmen will have to bide their time before going big, with wickets in hand being crucial.
The pacers should get the ball to move around, although they could revert to off-pace deliveries.
