In quest of a victory, the Bangladesh A team will take on West Indies A on Tuesday in the second unofficial Test at Sylhet Academy Cricket Ground.

The three-match series opening unofficial Test ended in a draw after the visitors dominated the game largely. The rain however denied the second string West Indies the victory as it ate up most of the time of the four-day match.

After the first two days were severely hit by rain, West Indies declared the first innings on 427-7. Bangladesh however failed to overcome follow-on, being all out for 264.

Desperate for the victory, West Indies A enforced follow-on but Bangladesh A survived the last day and put up 187-7 to draw the game from the knife-edge of the defeat.
