Sri Lanka v Bangladesh 2nd Test – Match Preview

When: Thurssday, 29 April 2021

Start time: 10:00 IST (04:30 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Sri Lanka have now only recorded one win here in their previous eight matches.

Spinners will likely have a big role to play as the clash develops.

Weather conditions: Thunderstorms and rain showers are expected for this clash. It is likely they’ll have much impact in the first few days but could get worse heading into the weekend.

  • Dimuth Karunaratne – The captain continued his good form at this ground when bagging 244 first-innings runs in the first Test match. He will look to lay more foundations for his side in this clash.

Sri Lanka v Bangladesh 2nd 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.

Sri Lanka to Have Highest Opening Partnership

Sri Lanka’s openers both batted well in the first Test when having to reply to Bangladesh’s big first innings score.

Dimuth Karunaratne hit 244 and partner Lahiru Thirimanne made a half-century as they pushed beyond an opening century stand.

While Bangladesh had the in-form Tamim Iqbal leading from the top, the same can’t be said of his fellow opener Saif Hassan, who fell for a duck and one run over the course of the contest.

Given question marks over Hassan’s form, backing Sri Lanka to enjoy the highest opening partnership looks a great bet.

The home side can be backed at 1.85 with 22Bet to achieve that feat.

Mominul Offers Value

Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque was impressive in the first Test and looks the value bet to be his team’s first innings top scorer.

Tamim Iqbal leads the betting in this market but siding with the bigger-priced Mominul is worth considering.

He hit a superb 127 in the first innings of the first Test and was unbeaten on 23 when the clash ended in a draw.

Opener Saif Hassan is struggling and number three Nazmul Hossain Shanto fell early in the second innings of the previous clash. It means Mominul could carry the Bangladesh fight coming in at number four.

He is 3.75 with bet365 to be his team’s first-innings top scorer.

Back Taijul for Top Bowler

Taijul Islam took two wickets in the first Test and can build on that here.

The left-arm spinner should enjoy conditions at this venue again and is a man in form.

He took eight wickets against the Windies in Dhaka in February before enjoying more success in domestic cricket.

Backing him to be Bangladesh’s top first-innings bowler looks a good bet. He is priced at 3.25 with bet365.
