The second and final Test of the series will start on December 4 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. Gough and Saikat will also be on the field as on-field umpire in this second test. Besides, Masudur Rahman Mukul will be the fourth umpire.
Besides, Niyamur Rashid Rahul will be the match referee in both the matches. At the same time, Gazi Sohail has been given the role of TV umpire or third umpire in both the matches.
