Bangladesh vs West Indies – 1st Test Betting Tips

Host Bangladesh will be looking to continue their winning ways when they lock horns with West Indies in the first Test of the two-match series at Zahur Ahmad Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Wednesday.

The hosts will be high on confidence after completing a clean sweep in three-match ODI series. With the return of Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman, Bangladesh will back themselves to take all points from this two-match series and climb the ladder in the ICC Test Championship.

Meanwhile, West Indies will face their toughest challenge as their high-profile players like Jason Holder, Roston Chase, Shimron Hetymer and Shai Hope have opted out of the Bangladesh tour due to covid-19 concerns.

Both teams have competed in 16 Tests in the history of five-day format where West Indies have an upper hand with 10 wins compared to Bangladesh’s four victories whereas two matches ended as a draw.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Based on their current form, Host Bangladesh will be confident of beating West Indies in this opening fixture. With Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman producing excellent performances, the home side will be looking to deliver another clinical performance at Chattogram.

With their Test regulars not available for this series, West Indies might fight it tough competing against in-form Bangladesh.

Therefore, the prediction is for Bangladesh to secure a comprehensive win against West Indies in Chattogram.

Tip 1: Mominul Haque phenomenal record at Chattogram

In the past 12 months, Bangladesh Skipper Mominul Haque has suffered from a lean run with the bat. In seven Test matches played, Mominul has scored 347 runs at an average of 26.69 with one century and one half-century to his name.

Zahur Ahmad Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram has been a happy hunting venue for Mominul Haque, who has accumulated 1056 runs in 7 Test matches at an average of 75.42. He has scored six centuries at this venue.

Due to his excellent performances at this venue, Mominul Haque will be looking to lead from the front and deliver a big innings against West Indies. So we are backing Mominul Haque to score 60 or more [email protected].


Expect Bangladesh to register a comprehensive win over West Indies in the First Test.
