Bangladesh v West Indies 1st Test – Match Preview

The West Indies have won seven of their last 10 head-to-head meetings with Bangladesh in Test cricket.

However, the last time the Windies played Test cricket in Bangladesh, the tourists lost 2-0.

Where: Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram

When: Wednesday, 3 February 2021

Start time: 09:00 IST (03:30 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Bangladesh lost their last test in Chattogram to Afghanistan. The pitch can be typical of the subcontinent – low and slow. The captain to win the toss will probably look to bat first and only once, then bowl the opposition out twice on a deteriorating deck.

Weather conditions: Rain is predicted throughout the five days, but only nominally, and probably not enough to truly affect play. The weather will be hot and dry otherwise, with characteristically high humidity levels.

  • Shakib Al HasanBangladesh cricket are happy to have their star all-rounder back. He has recovered from a groin injury and has been included in the Test squad.
  • Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel – The West Indies played a Test in Chattogram as recently as 2018. Gabriel and Roach opened the bowling in that match – and will remember the conditions this time.

Bangladesh v West Indies 1st Test – Betting Tips and Prediction

We have more expert cricket betting tips for you. They include some great odds and are based on the form of the players.

Make Mehidy Your Top Bangladesh Bowler

Mehidy Hasan was really good during the ODI series against the West Indies and might take that fine form into this first Test.

He should be allowed to bowl plenty of overs in the first innings, when he’s a good pick at 3.5 with 22Bet to be the top bowler for Bangladesh.

Pick No Century to Be Scored

With Gabriel and Roach threatening alongside the West Indies spinners and the visiting batsman hardly comfortable in foreign conditions, we could see several stop-start contributions with the bat.

Picking a century not to be scored is an attractive price at 5.0 with 10CRIC. This could bring great value for a bet others might not want to take.

Bet on Brathwaite as Top West Indies Batsman

There is more responsibility on the shoulders of Kraigg Brathwaite this time, since his tour of Bangladesh in 2018.

He’s the captain, which he can’t let negatively affect his primary role with the bat. Early signs suggest it won’t. He’s a solid price at 3.5 with 1xBet to be the top West Indies batsman in the first innings.

Here’s our round-up of the best cricket betting tips for this match.
