Sri Lanka will be taking on West Indies for the last time during this tour in the second Test match. This fixture will also be played at the Galle International Cricket Stadium from November 29, Monday. I know the last time whoever went through my tips earned quite a lot of money and it is time to maximise yet another opportunity. Therefore I have brought along three of the top betting tips from SL vs WI 2nd Test Day 1 head-to-head encounter.
Sri Lanka had to have the upper hand as they welcomed the Caribbeans to their home for this two-match Test series. The Lankans, led by Dimuth Karunaratne, crushed West Indies by a mammoth margin of 187 runs in the 1st Test. The captain led from the front scoring more than 200 runs in that game and was rightly adjudged the man of the match for his outstanding effort with the bat. West Indies did put up a fight but their challenge came up in patches and that’s not going to win you a Test match on the subcontinental soil. Coming into this second Test match, Sri Lanka are likely to complete a clean sweep but who knows, the Caribbeans might come up with a surprise. Cricket is a funny game man! While we wait in anticipation for the match to start, let’s take a look at the top betting tips from the SL vs WI 2nd Test Day 1 clash.
The obvious point here is - Sri Lanka were to be favoured heavily by the aggregators and therefore the odds for the team markets are ridiculously low for this upcoming fixture. Thus, I have picked the top three player bets from the first innings of the SL vs WI 2nd Test.
The Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karunaratne was going to be my first choice from the player markets even if the team bets were available to be picked. The way he has been batting, particularly in the longest format, is exceptional. He has played 73 Test matches so far and has 5406 runs under his belt at an average of almost 40.00. He has played 5 matches against West Indies and has notched up 520 runs at an incredible average of 57.77. In the previous game, he finished with scores of 147 and 83, scoring 230 runs in a single game! As the skipper of the side, Karunaratne has played 15 Test matches and has racked up 1418 runs at an impressive average of 52.51. In 6 matches this calendar year, the captain has piled on a mammoth 854 runs at an astounding average of 77.63. Parimatch is offering odds of 1.87 for Dimuth Karunratne to score over 30.5 runs in the SL vs WI 2nd Test Day 1 match prediction.
Next up I have Nkrumah Bonner, who has been a decent fit in this West Indies Test outfit. The top-order batsman has shown resilience and grit on several occasions in this particular format of the game. The latest example of which came in the previous game when all of his batting partners succumbed to the trap laid by the Sri Lankan spinners, Bonner stood tall on one end and remained unbeaten on 68* in the second innings of the previous Test match. He has played 8 Test matches so far and has scored 498 runs at an average of 41.50. This is his third game against Sri Lanka in red-ball cricket and he has managed to score 213 runs at a very good average of 71.00! In the second match of any series, Bonner has a batting average of 33.50. Batting at number 3 for West Indies, this lad has been maintaining an average of 37.85. Parimatch is offering odds of 1.87 for Nkrumah Bonner to score over 23.5 runs in the SL vs WI 2nd Test match prediction.
Last but not the least, I have one of the most popular Sri Lankan cricketers, who has managed to brush his shoulders with the who's who of Lankan cricket and the world. Yes ladies and gentlemen, I am indeed talking about Angelo Mathews. He has had quite an illustrious career up until now as he has played 91 Test matches and has scored 6308 runs at an average of 45.05. In 7 matches against West Indies, Mathews has scored 279 runs at an average of 34.87. While playing on his home soil, the former Sri Lankan captain has an average of 45.17. Mathews set up a brilliant second innings knock of 69* runs alongside his captain in the last game. In the ongoing calendar year, the right-handed batsman has been maintaining an average of 40.87. Parimatch is at it yet again as they are offering odds of 1.87 for Angelo Mathews to score over 30.5 runs in the SL vs WI 2nd Test Day 1 match prediction.
Dimuth Karunaratne to score over 30.5 runs - @ 1.87 (Parimatch)
Nkrumah Bonner to score over 23.5 runs - @ 1.87 (Parimatch)
Angelo Mathews to score over 30.5 runs - @ 1.87 (Parimatch)
