The second test match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka is going to be played at Mirpur. This has been a venue where exciting, result-oriented cricket has been played in the past.

Both teams have some injury issues going into this match. We can expect some changes to the viewing lineups because of injuries and also because of the expectation that the pitch is going to take a lot of turns. From a betting point of view, you should look for bets that favor the spinners, bets against the batters in most cases, and look for hedging opportunities as the scales can shift quickly.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Match starting on the 23rd of May 2022.

BAN VS SL TEAM PREVIEWS

BANGLADESH

Bangladesh will not have the services of Nayeem Hasan and Shoriful Islam available to them in this match after they picked up injuries. That is not a huge concern for them as they still have some good skin options available. We expect Taijul Islam, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mosaddek Hossain to do the bulk of the work.

You can look at Taijul Islam as the top wicket-taker Bangladesh betting market. Among the batters, we are going to avoid betting on them as the pitch can crumble quickly making run-scoring a bit of a lottery.

Bangladesh has lost its previous two matches here and has also been troubled by quality spin in recent matches. It is not going to be easy for the batters to score freely and that will put pressure on them for sure.

SRI LANKA

Sri Lanka looks like a pretty attractive bet heading into this match. Not only are the odds quite good but we also think the stars are aligning nicely for the islanders. Don’t worry about the fact that Embuldeniya and Mendis were a bit out of sorts in the previous match. That was a flat pitch where they had nothing to work with. This time, they will have a lot more assistance and we think they are going to be a handful.

A bet on either (or even both of them) to be the man of the match could be a great pick. Sri Lanka came into the series with a few question marks about its batting and that is where Angelo Mathews’s form in the previous match has solved some big problems.

He is a huge presence in the middle and also fantastic against the spin. A bet on him to try and capitalize on the good form he seems to be in is a good idea as well. There is also enough other batting talent in Sri Lanka that they should be able to cope on a potentially difficult track.

The pitch at the Shere Bangla National Stadium is a balanced track. The new ball comes nicely onto the bat and the batters can play their strokes freely right from the start of their innings. The spinners are expected to play a major role while bowling on this surface as the ball tends to hold a bit on the surface as the game progresses.
