BANA vs IND_A Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Dec 06, 2022
The first Test match between Bangladesh A and India A ended in a Draw. The two teams will now go up against each other once more in Sylhet as they try and win the series. There is a fair bit of experimentation when the A teams play and so you may see some team changes on both sides.
BANA vs IND_A Team Previews
Bangladesh A hung on to a Draw in the first match by just a very small margin. They were nine down and had a very small lead when the match ended. The lack of runs from their batters in the first inning put them in trouble.
Zakir Hasan scored 173 in the second inning and showed he has the talent to make it on the big stage. Najmul Hossain Shanto also scored 77 in the second inning and helped Bangladesh A escape a tricky situation. Apart from them, though, no one else really scored any major runs.
Mossadek Hossain top scored with 63 in the first match and would like to make more of a contribution in this match.
Bangladesh's batting is certainly the weak link but the bowling unit has a lot to think about as well. Taijul Islam picked up three wickets and Khaled Ahmed two but none of the other bowlers were able to make any dent on the Indian batting.
Bangladesh A Playing 11
Ashiqur Zaman, Hasan Murad, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Musfik Hasan, Shahadat Hossain, Sumon Khan, Zakir Ali Anik, Mominul Haque, Mohammad Mithun, Shadman Islam, Zakir Hasan.
India A scored 465 for 5 in the only inning that they played. Yashavi Jaiswal scored 145 and Abhimanyu Easwaran scored 142. The rest of the batting lineup did not have much to do as the team pushed on for a declaration but almost everyone got starts. Players like Tilak Varma and Sarfaraz Khan can play massive match-winning innings themselves so India A has nothing to worry about batting strength wise.
The bigger concern is being able to pick up 20 wickets to force a win.
Navdeep Saini and Saurabh Kumar were the best bowlers in the first inning. More bowlers chipped in during the second inning but it was only Saurabh Kumar that managed to end with five massive wickets to his name.
India A Playing 11
Abhimanyu Easwaran, Mukesh Kumar, Navdeep Saini, Yash Dhull, Cheteshwar Pujara, Jayant Yadav, KS Bharat, Sarfaraz Khan, Saurabh Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Yashasvi Jaiswal.

Pitch and Conditions
The conditions are expected to be dry and we should not have many interruptions during the match. The pitch in Sialkot should be flat to start out with, have very little pace and bounce, and offer spin from the start. Things can start to move very quickly from the second or third day onward and we think a result is likely.
