Dhaka: Nov 13, 2012

 

West Indies captain Darren Sammy won the toss and elected to bat in the first Test against Bangladesh at Dhaka on Tuesday.

 

Sammy wants his players to “stay hungry” and to build on recent successes when they meet Bangladesh on Tuesday in the first of two cricket Tests.

 

Sammy’s men are buoyed by victory in the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka last month following a 2-0 home Test win over New Zealand.

 

They are looking to continue the good work in a Bangladesh tour which also includes five one-day games and a Twenty20.

 

Sammy, who led the West Indies to a 1-0 Test victory over Bangladesh  last year, said his team must maintain the momentum.

 

“I think World Twenty20 was a great achievement for us but we have got to stay hungry. We can’t keep thinking because we won the World Twenty20 that we have turned the corner,” he was quoted by AFP.

 

 

 

Teams:

 

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (c), Mahmudullah, Tamim Iqbal, Zunaed Siddique, Shahriar Nafees, Shakib Al Hasan, Naeem Islam, Nasir Hossain,  Shahadat Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Shohag Gazi.

 

West Indies: Chris Gayle, Kieran Powell, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Marlon Samuels, Denesh Ramdin, Darren Sammy (c), Veerasammy Permaul, Sunil Narine, Tino Best, Ravi Rampaul.
