BAN vs PAK 1st Test Day 1 Predictions & Betting Tips

Bangladesh’s hunt for a first Test victory against their Asian rivals Pakistan is all set to continue with a two match series in their own backyard, the first of which is scheduled to be held at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram commencing on Friday, the 26th of November. Coming off a positive result against Zimbabwe, the Tigers will be looking to make a statement against the formidable Pakistan squad and give them a tough fight after some disastrous T20I performances. Here, I have collated the three best Pakistan tour of Bangladesh betting tips for you from the BAN vs PAK 1st Test Day 1 match prediction.

Even though Bangladesh has made some great strides off late in the white ball formats of the game establishing themselves as worthy competitors for the cricketing elites, they are still a long way off from achieving success in Tests. A golden run a few years ago did earn them maiden victories in the format against England and Australia, but overall the Tigers have largely fallen to easy defeats against the likes of India and Sri Lanka. Bangladesh have met Pakistan 10 times so far in Tests, registering losses in 9 encounters while holding them to a solitary draw in 2015. Their latest clash came last year where Pakistan comfortably won the first of two matches by an innings and 44 runs, before the pandemic forced the abandonment of the second fixture. Considering Pakistan themselves have been on a roll rediscovering their golden touch with a host of young talent led by the generational talent of Babar Azam, it is largely expected to be a lopsided encounter in their favour much like the T20 series. Nevertheless, here are my three best betting tips from the BAN vs PAK match prediction.

BAN vs PAK Player Bets:

Considering the huge disparity in strength and form between our two protagonists, most team bet odds on offer are expected to be underwhelming and hardly exciting. Thus, after going through all available options, I have picked the three perfect player bet tips for you from the BAN vs PAK head to head encounter.

Babar Azam to score over 38.5 runs

Arguably the best batsman in the world at the moment, Babar Azam’s numbers are unworldly. Across 188 international matches, the Pakistan skipper has racked up nearly 9,000 runs at a brilliant average of 49.50, including 20 centuries and 59 half-centuries. In Tests, he has 2,362 runs to his name averaging 42.94. In 2021, he has so far played six international red ball encounters, tallying 317 runs at an average of 31.70. His last four scores, which came in the series versus West Indies, read 33, 75, 55 and 30. The top order talisman has faced Bangladesh only once in Tests, scoring a fantastic 143 to help his team register an innings-victory. As for his overall form, the 27-year-old was the highest run-getter in the recently concluded World T20 averaging an astounding 60.60 and there seems to be little that can stop him from excelling at the moment. Thus, rest assured that Babar Azam will breeze past the ask set for him by the bookmakers in the first Test against Bangladesh.

Mohammad Rizwan to score big runs

By this point in time, everyone is aware of Mohammad Rizwan’s ridiculous supremacy in the T20 format. Now it’s time you became aware of his insane numbers in first-class cricket as well. Across 97 matches, the wicketkeeper has scored 5,000 runs at an average of 43.39. He has also played 17 Tests, racking up 914 runs while averaging a brilliant 41.54. Seven of those matches came in 2021 alone, during which he accumulated 397 runs at an average of 44.11, including his maiden Test century against the Proteas. As far as his present nick with the bat is concerned, the 29-year-old averaged upwards of 70 at the World T20 becoming the first batsman to cross the milestone of 1,000 runs in a calendar year in T20Is, before stepping up to the plate once again in the bilateral series against Bangladesh to help his team win games. When the world’s best batsmen are in great form, they are pretty much invincible at the crease and facing a rather weak and inexperienced Bangladesh bowling lineup, Mohammad Rizwan is all set to score big runs in the upcoming Test match. You can capitalize on this BAN vs PAK player bet tip at PariMatch with their typically amazing odds which will be made available soon.

Mahmudullah to provide resistance for Bangladesh

A lot of Bangladesh’s hope in the series will rely on the experienced shoulders of Mahmudullah, their former skipper in Tests. The 35-year-old has played 50 Tests for his country, aggregating 2.914 runs at an excellent average of 33.49. He has five centuries and 16 fifties to his name, etching his name amongst the Bangladeshi greats. His most recent Test came against Zimbabwe earlier this year, in which he struck a brilliant 150*, helping his team to a win by registering his highest Test score ever. The all-rounder however has crossed the milestone previously in first-class cricket, in which he has an incredible 6,557 runs averaging 35.63. Mahmudullah has grown into the role of a Test batsman in commendable fashion, adjusting his game to become a much needed anchor for the Tigers in the middle order. With 5 25-plus scores in his kitty against Pakistan in Tests, he is all set to serve as Bangladesh’s beacon of hope and provide resilience against a fierce bowling attack by edging his way past the mark set for him. To take on this BAN vs PAK player bet tip, head to PariMatch and accept their fantastic odds once released.
