BAN vs SL Prediction - May 15, 2022

Bangladesh is going to be playing its first Test Match at home this season as it gets ready to hist Sri Lanka. Matches between them have been quite intriguing in the past and can often get quite feisty. From a betting point of view, the teams are seen as being quite evenly matched and so that means we get some attractive odds to play with.

Going into this match, both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are being offered at exactly the same odds to win the match. Sri Lanka has won both the previous series it has played against Bangladesh, one of which was in Bangladesh.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka 1st Test match 2022. The match is going to be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram starting on the 15th of May 2022.

BAN vs SL Team Previews


Bangladesh will be happy that it has the services of Shakib Al Hasan available to it after a COVID scare. It is expected that his bowling is going to less than 100% but his batting is good enough to warrant a place in the side alone.

Bangladesh's batting lineup is quite decent and has a lot of experience. Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Litton Das, and Shakib Al Hasan should all find a place in the starting eleven. That is an amazing amount of batting depth, especially while playing in home conditions.

The bowling attack for Bangladesh is going to be a bit compromised as Taskin Ahmed and Mehidy Hasan are not fit. That means Taijul Islam, Shoriful Islam, and Ebadot Hossain will lead the bowling attack with support from the all-rounders.

Picking 20 wickets could be a challenge.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka was demolished by India in the two Tests it played prior to this series and that seems to have resulted in a number of changes being made to the squad. A pretty new look batting lineup is likely to take the field in the first Test and that is a concern.

A lot of the pressure of scoring the runs is going to fall on Dimuth Karunaratne. He is the clear best Test player in this team and is often underrated. You can bet on him to score some runs in this match. Oshada Fernando, Kusal Mendia, Angelo Matthews, Dhananjaya de Silva, and maybe Dinesh Chandimal are expected to find a place in the playing eleven.

The bowling attack for Sri Lanka is average at best and it also has some of its best players missing. Kasun Rajitha, Lasith Embuldeniya, Vishwa Fernando, and Praveen Jayawickrama are the ones that we think will form the bowling unit for the first match.

Once again, this is not a lineup that is going to take 20 wickets on flat pitches.

Sri Lanka Playing 11

Dimuth Karunaratne, Oshada Fernando, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella, Ramesh Mendis, Lasith Embuldeniya, Asitha Fernando, MVT Fernando.

BAN vs SL Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. That should be seen as a big advantage since the pitch should deteriorate as the match progresses and the team batting last could struggle.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch is expected to be flat and good for batting. As a venue, the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is one of the best for batting in Bangladesh or even Asia as a whole. The betting strategy here should be to back the middle-order batters from both teams to score runs in the first inning.

The weather is not very encouraging and there is some rain predicted n every single day of the match. That could take out a lot of time from the match and we could struggle to get a result.

BAN vs SL Betting Tips

We are going to bet on the Draw in this match. Both teams have a strong batting lineup with a good amount of depth and bowling attacks that are not the greatest. Also, the pitch (if it plays to reputation) should be quite slow and placid. The odds available on the Draw right now are the most attractive to us.

Bet on the Draw.

    Dimuth Karunaratne Total Fours First Inning

    Over 2.5 (1.66)


We don't think there is a batter better than Karunaratne right now in the Sri Lankan lineup. he also bats at the top of the order when the opportunity to get boundaries is always more.

    Tamim Iqbal Total Fours First Inning

    Over 3.5 (1.75)


This is another similar bet like the previous one we recommended. Tamim is the leader fo the Bangladeshi batting lineup, scores a lot of boundaries, and is up against a mediocre Sri Lankan bowling attack. We will take these days any day of the week!
