Notably, both the Tests are part of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2021-23. Currently, Sri Lanka occupy the fifth, while Bangladesh eight spot on the 9-team WTC points table.

BAN vs SL Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the BAN vs SL 2nd Test head-to-head contest.

Match to end in a draw

Ahead of the first Test match in Chattogram, Bangladesh had lost their last four home Test matches on the bounce. However, their all-round performance against Sri Lanka saw them breaking the chain of defeats and settling for a draw. The Bangla Tigers have managed only one win in their last 10 Test matches against Sri Lanka, dating back to March 2013. Also, Bangladesh are yet to beat Sri Lanka at home. Sri Lanka have won six out of their nine Test matches in Bangladesh, but since 2014 a draw has been enforced on three out of five occasions by the hosts. With the two teams meeting for the second Test match in Mirpur, another draw is likely on cards. The performances of both the teams is crying out loud the result of the second and final Test of the 2-match series. As many as five Sri Lanka batsmen scored at least a fifty during the first Test. Former Sri Lanka captain Angelo Matthews was the lone centurion for his team. He missed out on a double hundred by just one run. Current captain Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis looked solid at the top. Experienced Dinesh Chandimal and wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella also chipped in with handy contributions. Bangladesh batters got the opportunity of playing in just one innings in the drawn Test but they showcased their capabilities exceptionally in their home conditions. Opener Mahmudul Hasan Joy scored 58, Tamim Iqbal smashed a hundred, Litton Das also came up with a handy 88, and Mushfiqur Rahim, who became the first Bangladesh batsman to score 5,000 Test runs, also slammed a hundred. With no big name in the bowling departments on either side, Bangladesh off-spinner Nayeem Hasan and Sri Lanka pacer Kasun Rajitha starred with six and four wickets respectively in the match. The batsmen from both the sides look in some fine form, whereas the bowling departments of both the teams lack any viciousness. We are very well set for another high-scoring encounter which will end in a draw. Until and unless there is some dramatic batting collapse in the match, which is very unlikely, the second Test and the series both are set to end in a draw. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and place your bet on the same at the odds of 3.20 from the BAN vs SL head-to-head encounter.

BAN vs SL Player Bet:

Dinesh Chandimal and Mushfiqur Rahim are my top two player betting tips for the BAN vs SL 2nd Test match. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Dinesh Chandimal to score over 24.5 runs

Before the start of the series, we had predicted that senior Sri Lanka players including Dinesh Chandimal would make a massive difference in the result of the series. The 32-year-old scored crucial 66 runs in the first innings and remained unbeaten at 39 off 135 balls in the second. The right-hander's record against Bangladesh is nothing but stunning. Chandimal carries a stunning average of 80.50 in his nine matches against Bangladesh. He has scored 805 runs which includes four hundreds. In Bangladesh, Dinesh Chandimal averages 64.83 in five matches. In his last ten innings Bangladesh, Chandimal has scored -- 39*, 66, 30, 0, 87, 5, 138, 50*, 5, 100*. Overall, the middle-order batsman has played 65 Test matches to score 4322 runs at an average of 40.01. The two innings from Dinesh Chandimal in the first BAN vs SL Test came at crucial junctures. One saw his forge a 136-run partnership with Angelo Mathews to help Sri Lanka post 397 in the first innings, while the seventh wicket partnership of 99 unbeaten runs with Niroshan Dickwella in the second innings ensured that the visitors settle for a hassle free draw to kick off their Bangladesh tour. Dinesh Chandimal has played just two innings at Mirpur. In 2014 he scored 40 runs in the first innings, while in 2018 he managed 30 runs in the second innings. Prior to the first Test, Dinesh Chandimal had scored his last Test fifty in January 2021. Now that Chandimal has played to crucial knocks and gained some serious confidence, he is very likely to score impeccably in the second Test match in Mirpur. Keep an eye out for Dimuth Kuranuratne on Pari Match from the BAN vs SL head-to-head contest.

Interestingly, the wicketkeeper-batsman averages 62.63 in eight Tests in Sri Lanka and a moderate 35.30 at home in as many red-ball matches against the Lankans at home.
