BAN vs SL Betting Tips

  • Opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy scored a century on the recent tour of South Africa and is our tip for Bangladesh’s highest run scorer against Sri Lanka. With the ball, Shakib Al Hasan has 215 Test wickets and we expect him to be the home sides’ top wicket taker in this Test.
  • Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne has been in excellent form with the bat in this format over the past 18 months. He is our pick for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer against Bangladesh. Lasith Embuldeniya is a very dangerous bowler on any surface and he is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in Chittagong.
  • As he is capable of winning a game with both bat and ball, we are predicting Shakib Al Hasan to take the Player of the Match Award.

BAN vs SL 1st Test Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Bangladesh host Sri Lanka in a two-match Test series beginning on May 15 at the Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. Bangladesh were heavily beaten in both games of their most recent Test series away in South Africa in early April. Sri Lanka lost 2-0 away in India in March. Read on as we preview this opening match. The Test begins at 10:00 local time.

Bangladesh have not won a home Test since February 2020 when they beat the touring Zimbabweans. However, home advantage is big in Test cricket and they will go into this game as favourites.

Sri Lanka are under new management with Mickey Arthur departing and former England coach Chris Silverwood taking over. They will be confident of being competitive in this fixture.

BAN vs SL Match Toss Prediction

With the pitch expected to take more spin as the game progresses, we expect both captains to choose to bat first if they win the toss in Chittagong

BAN vs SL Pitch Report

Although there is always a good amount of spin on the final three days in Chittagong, pace bowlers have had plenty of success on this ground in recent Tests. We expect to see a quick wicket which will deteriorate on days 4 and 5.

Weather Report

It will be hot, cloudy and humid throughout all five days of this Test with an outside chance of thunderstorms from the start to the finish.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

The home side will definitely be without Mehidy Hasan Miraz who has a finger injury but may return for the second Test of the series. Also missing will be the injured pace bowler Taskin Ahmed. Shakib Al Hasan is expected to replace Hasan in the line-up for this game.

BAN Key Players

  • Mahmudul Hasan Joy- the 21 year old opener has had a stern examination in Test cricket against South Africa, Pakistan and New Zealand in his first four games. He already has a century and a half-century to his name.
  • Tamim Iqbal- the experienced left-handed opener has played 65 Tests since making his debut in 2008. He has scored nine centuries and 31 fifties in this format.
  • Shakib Al Hasan- widely recognised as one of the best all-format all-rounders in the world. Bangladesh are simply a far better side with him in their team.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have struggled in Test matches in recent times and, apart from a very surprising win in New Zealand earlier this year, have lost five of their last six games in this format.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

 Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Shakib Al Hasan, Mominul Haque (c), Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das (wk), Yasir Ali, Taijul Islam, Khaled Ahmed, Ebadot Hossain

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Sri Lanka will be without impressive young batter Pathum Nissanka who is injured and Lahiru Thirimanne who is on paternity leave for three months. Although pace bowler, Suranga Lakmal, retired after the tour of India, Sri Lanka still have a good core of experienced players.

SL Key Players

  • Dimuth Karunaratne- the skipper and opening batter has been playing for Yorkshire in the County Championship in the weeks ahead of this series. He has scored 14 Test centuries.
  • Angleo Mathews- the 34 year old has been a mainstay of Sri Lanka’s team across all formats for many years. He averages 44.05 in Test cricket with a top score of 200 not-out.
  • Lasith Embuldeniya- the slow left-arm spinner has picked up 70 wickets in Test cricket from only 15 games. He has gone wicketless in only two out of 26 innings and they were in his second and third Tests.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka were well beaten by India in their last two Tests but had been picking up some good results in this format prior to that tour.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Kusal Mendis, Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Oshada Fernando, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Suminda Lakshan, Lasith Embuldeniya, Kamindu Mendis, Praveen Jayawickrama, Vishwa Fernando

🏆 Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Prediction

This will be the first glimpse of Test cricket since mid-April and we have two well matched sides who will go head to head. Sri Lanka have the ability to beat any side on their day but they will not be at full strength for this game. Overall, we think home advantage will be crucial and are predicting a victory for Bangladesh.
