Sri Lanka v Bangladesh 1st Test – Betting Tips and Prediction
We have even more cricket betting tips for you. These are based on the form of the players and based on the best odds on offer.
The Match to End in a Draw
With thunderstorms and rain showers on the cards every day of this Test, the price for the draw looks appealing.
Sri Lanka also drew their last two Tests against West Indies as they showed fine battling spirits away from home.
Bangladesh will need that same fight now after travelling with an inexperienced squad.
However, they did show in their last test action, also against West Indies, that they have it in them to score runs, especially through Tamim Iqbal, Shadman Islam and Mominul Haque.
That makes the draw look a decent value bet at 5.0 with bet365.
Karunaratne for Top Batsman
Dimuth Karunaratne had a mixed time against West Indies but did end the second Test with a fine 75.
Before that, he also scored a Test century against South Africa at the very start of the year.
The left-handed opener has a good record here, scoring 285 in his previous 4 matches. A return to the venue could bring out the best in him.
He is priced at 4.0 with 1xBet to be Sri Lanka’s top first innings batsman.
Miraz to take Wickets
Mehidy Hasan Miraz could have some joy in Kandy.
Backing the spinner to star with the ball for his team looks a decent bet.
The 23-year-old troubled the Windies in his previous Test matches and has more to come.
His price of 3.0 with 1xBet to be his team’s top first-innings wicket-taker looks is worth considering.
Look at our round-up of the best cricket betting tips for this match.
