India have taken on Sri Lanka in the first of the two match Test series at the IS Bindra Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali from earlier today. Day 1 saw plenty of runs flow through the willows of the Indian batters, in fact all of them until now. Time for some more riveting action on Day 2 and of course that brings me to my next round of betting tips from this IND vs SL 1st Test head-to-head clash.
Considering the fact that it is the 100th Test match for Virat Kohli, it was indeed a momentous occasion for the former captain as well as the Indian cricket fans. Coming back to the game, Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat first. The pitch did not do much since morning and the Sri Lankan bowlers had to toil hard to dismiss the Indian batsmen. Hanuma Vihari scored a gritty fifty and Virat Kohli on his 100th Test was bedazzled by a peach of a delivery from Lasith Embuldeniya. Rishabh Pant was the star of the day as he scored 96 runs before playing on from a good length delivery by Suranga Lakmal. Despite Sri Lanka’s efforts, India managed to pile 357 runs for the loss of 6 wickets on Day 1 of this Test match. Let us look at the top betting tips from Day 2:
It is obvious that the team bets will be in favour of the hosts and the odds are ridiculously low. However, I have still managed to find one out of one lucrative market from the IND vs SL 1st Test Day 2 battle.
This is a rather easy one to start with from Day 2 of India vs Sri Lanka 1st Test match. If India bats on the Indian soil on the 1st Day of any Test match, one can expect plenty of boundaries as the wicket is usually fabulous to bat on. The Men in Blue have clobbered 40 boundaries on Day 1 already with four batters still to bat on Day 2. The last time India played a Test match against Sri Lanka on the Indian soil, the Men in Blue clattered 55 fours in the first innings of that match. Surprisingly, the last time India played a Test match at the IS Bindra Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, they hammered 52 boundaries as well. In fact, on the last two occasions India took on Sri Lanka in the longest format of the game, India have managed to clobber over 51 fours on both occasions. The Pari Match website is offering incredible odds of 1.87 for India to hit over 52.5 fours in the IND vs SL 1st Test Day match prediction.
Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have remained unscathed at the end of Day 1 of this Test match. Therefore, these two automatically became the choice from the player markets section.
The Indian bowling all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin came out to the crease after Rishabh Pant was dismissed very late in the day. He is someone who does not hold back irrespective of the format of the game. Therefore, the chances of him getting out early is also high. To attest the point I just made, let me tell you that Ashwin has a batting average of 19.69 while playing against Sri Lanka in Test matches. However, while batting on the Indian soil, the right-handed batter has scored at an average of 29.15. In the ongoing calendar year, Ashwin has played three Test matches and has scored 81 runs at an average of 20.25. In the first match of any Test series, Ravichandran Ashwin has been maintaining a betting average of 23.72. The Tamil Nadu-born cricketer has played 20 Test matches in the ICC World Test Championship and has scored 493 runs at an average of 19.72. Head over to the Pari Match website yet again for getting hold of fantastic odds of 1.87 against Ravichandran Ashwin from the IND vs SL 1st Test Day 2 match prediction.
It is imperative for India to put up a good score in the first innings of this ongoing Test match. While the Vihari’s and Pants have gone back to the pavilion, Ravindra Jadeja has stood tall in the middle. He is one of the most prolific all-rounders in the world and he adds in every possible way he can to the game. At the moment, he is batting on 45* and is expected to score a few more runs tomorrow. However, we are going to bet against Jadeja and it is because he averages 39.73 with the bat in the ICC World Test Championship. When he plays against Sri Lanka, the left-handed batsman has a wonderful batting average of 56.66. While playing in India, the southpaw has maintained a batting average of 39.42. In the first match of any Test series, Jadeja has an average of 44.47 with the bat. Pari Match once again have come to your rescue as they are offering odds of 1.68 for Ravindra Jadeja to score under 82.5 runs in the IND vs SL 1st Test Day 2 match prediction.
