Bangladesh were left frustrated by the Windies pacers as they were bundled out for a humiliating  43 runs in the first innings and a similar situation forced them to a defeat by an innings and 219 runs

Bangladesh national pace bowling coach Courtney Walsh is expecting a wicket similar to that of Antigua when visitor Bangladesh lock horns with host West Indies in the second and the final Test match of the series at Sabina Park in Jamaica today.

Bangladesh were left frustrated by the Windies pacers as they were bundled out for a humiliating  43 runs in the first innings and a similar situation forced them to a defeat by an innings and 219 runs. The wicket in Antigua had grass and bounce to aid the in-form Windies pace attack.

Right-arm pacer Kemer Roach who bulldozed the Bangladeshi batsmen with his record five-for was man of the match. The Winides will miss his services in the second Test due to a strained hamstring but that should not be a worry for the confident home side.

"We are expecting the wicket that we got in Antigua. Green and seaming wickets worked for the West Indies with a bit of bounce. Good to see those wickets coming back in the West Indies. Probably I retired too soon. Expecting to see a similar wicket with bit of grass," said Walsh to the media in Jamaica Tuesday.

Walsh is happy to be back to his home, Jamaica, and hoped his knowledge on local conditions will aid the Bangladesh pacers. The Bangladesh pace attack were also below par in the first Test, having failed to execute according to the team plan despite having a suitable conditions.

"It is just about being more focused and a lot more consistent. It is a good opportunity for the fast bowlers to get a chance and put their hands up. I just have to give them whatever information I can, I just need to pass onto them. And hopefully we can go out there and execute well. It is good to be back home. I am looking forward to this Test," former Windies pacer Walsh informed.

"As you all saw we had a rough first Test. It did not go as well as we were hoping. The West Indies played well. But with this Test we have a chance of bouncing back. It is a big Test for us and we will try to correct our mistakes from the first game," Walsh cited.
