BAN vs IND Match Prediction - Dec 22, 2022

India and Bangladesh are getting ready to face off against each other in the second Test. India has already climbed to second on the World Test Championship rankings and would love another win in this match before its tough series against Australia at home. Bangladesh would have been quite disappointed with the way the first test turned out. It had its chances but it did not capitalize on them. 

Injuries to its bowlers made the task much more difficult and now it must make changes to its team composition as well. The second test is being played in Dhaka where the ball spin sharply and so while India may be the odds-on favorite to win, Bangladesh cannot be counted out of this contest. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Bangladesh vs India 2nd test 2022. The match will be played at the Shere Bangla Stadium, Dhaka starting on the 22nd of December 2022. 


BAN vs IND Team Previews


Bangladesh suffered injuries to Ibadat Hussain and Shakib Al Hasan in the first test match. This meant that they were effectively playing with just three bowlers on a flat pitch.  this was never going to be successful against a strong batting lineup like India. 

As a result, Bangladesh is expected to add Nasum Ahmed to the lineup alongside Taskin Ahmed. 

We don't think these changes are going to make Bangladesh a world-class test side but they will allow it to compete to the best of its abilities. The biggest challenge for Bangladesh to overcome is a lack of runs from its leading batters. They have not been able to score consistently or just get enough runs on the board in Test Match cricket. 

Litton Das and Majmul Hossain Shanto are still finding the right rhythm with which to bat in the longest format of the game. Shakib Al Hasan is perhaps the only batter you can bank on. 

We think three spinners (Taijul Islam, Nasum Ahmed, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz) will play this match alongside Taskin Ahmed and Khaled Ahmed. This gives it a strong bowling lineup with which it should be able to take advantage of a pitch that generally takes sharp spin.

India is likely to take the field with the same lineup as the one it played in the first Test. Rohit Sharma has not recovered completely and Navdeep Saini has also got injured in the nets. The balance of the Indian lineup is quite promising and gives it plenty of options. 

The batting lineup is very strong with KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Rishab Pant, and Shreyas Iyer in the top-6. Almost all of these batters have scored runs in the previous match and are in good form. On a spinning pitch, we think Rishab Pant and Shreyas Iyer are the best batters for India. You can back them to get some runs in this match as well.

Also, Axar Patel and R Ashwin are genuine all-rounders in sub-continental conditions. Both of them are also going to lead the bowling effort alongside Kuldeep Yadav. The spin options at India's disposal are much better than what Bangladesh has and that is a huge advantage. 

Mohammad Siraj and Umesh Yadav will be the two fast bowlers that India plays in this match.

BAN vs IND Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. 60% of the matches played at the Shere Bangla Stadium have been won by the team that has batted first. It should be seen as having a big advantage.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for Dhaka is quite good and there is no rain expected. If anything, bad light may be more of an issue and could take some time out of the game. The pitch at the Shere Bangla Stadium is always spin friendly. The best time to bat will be on the first day after which the surface will continue to get worse. 

Scores will get progressively lower with each inning and getting a big first-inning total and a lead will be crucial. 

BAN vs IND Betting Tips

We think India has all the tools to be able to win this match. Its bowling lineup is capable of picking up 20 wickets even on a flat surface and thrives when the pitch starts to turn. India also has a massive advantage when it comes to the batting comparison between the two teams.

Bet on India to win.

    Shreyas Iyer (5.50)


Iyer has been in brilliant form this season and is particularly competent against spin. His role in the middle order could be massive especially if India loses the toss. We like the odds being offered and think the bet is worth a punt.

    Kuldeep Yadav (2.50)


It is remarkable just how much Kuldeep Yadav has improved as a bowler. He is bowling faster and still getting a lot of turn. His variations are hard to pick and we can see him picking a lot of wickets in this match as well.
