Dhaka  – After finishing the exciting 1st Test with 22-run defeat in Chittagong, Bangladesh will face the visiting England in the 2nd and last match that will roll on Friday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.The 10th Test match between tow nations will begin at 10am.After the dramatic behavior of Chittagong pitch, was hailed for challenging the batsmen and bowlers, there is much interest in the darker surface in Dhaka that usually favoured the batsmen,UNB News Agency Reported.Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim is expecting a different game in Dhaka with a suspension of pitch behavior, “The Dhaka Test will be played on different soil. We don’t know how it will behave, but I just want our spinners take advantage from the wicket and for the batsmen to be more responsible.”Mushfiqur who is on the brink of 50th Test appearance, after Habibul Bashar and Mohammad Ashraful among Bangladesh cricketers, was talking at a pre-match press conference at the match venue on Thursday.Mushfiqur will leapfrog wicket keeping record of Khaled Mashud when he will take the ground for his 45th Test keeping.England captain Alastair Cook praised his new teammate in the Test at another pre-match press conference on the day at the same venue.”It was in my plan to play Ansari (Zafar Ansari) in one Test here. He has the ability to take the ball away from the right-handers and I’ve seen in the nets he can bowl at good pace with good control. He can also bat as well, which is good.”There are two changes in the visitors’ best eleven side that played in Chittagong. England is set to hand a Test debut to Ansari, while Finn will take Broad’s place – meaning he has to wait to make his 100th Test appearance. Ansari is replacing Batty as England look to give Rashid another chance despite his indifferent performance in Chittagong.Bangladesh is likely to field nine batsmen making only one change in the squad that played for the side in the last match. Shuvagata Hom is likely to replace Shafiul Islam in the squad to add spin options. Subhashis Roy, Nurul Hasan Sohan and Mosaddek Hossain Saikat have to wait for their Test debut. But the place is still open for Soumya Sarkar to play as a second seamer or can go with a two-man seam attack by picking up Subashis Roy.However, the Met office forecast shows that there is possibility of light rain in Dhaka on the 2nd and 3rd day of the match due to influence of the Cyclone Kryant that passed over the Bay of Bengal.Bangladesh squad(probable): Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mominul Haque,Mahmudullah Riyad, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (captain & wk),Sabbir Rahman, Soumya Sarkar/Shuvagata Hom, Mehedi Hasan Miraz,Taijul Islam and Kamrul Islam Rabbi.England squad (probable): Alastair Cook (captain), Ben Duckett, Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow (wkt), Moeen Ali,Zafar Ansari, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid and Steven Finn.
