Bangladesh and West Indies are set to play the second of the 2-match Test series from 11th February at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. West Indies registered a historic win in the first Test when they chased down a mammoth target of 395 runs in the fourth innings. Debutant Kyle Mayers turned out to be the hero for them in that match scoring unbeaten 210 runs off 310 balls in the fourth innings.
Bangladesh also had few positives in the first match with captain Mominul Haque and Mehidy Hasan scoring centuries. They will be without the services of Shakib Al Hasan in the second match who has been ruled out due to an injury.
Let’s look at important stats and numbers before the start of the second Test between Bangladesh and the West Indies:

Tip Foster of England currently holds this record, who scored 355 runs in the first 3 innings of his Test career.
