Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (Chattogram) will host this Test series opener between Bangladesh and West Indies.

This venue generally brings the typical Asian pitches in Test cricket. Initially, batsmen feel very comfortable once get set, especially for the first three days. So, there is the chance of big scores with the help of some big knocks in the first two innings of a Test match. But in later part of a Test match, the spinners play massive roles with the ball.

This venue recently hosted an ODI between Bangladesh and West Indies, where the hosts won by 120 runs.
