SL vs ZIM Prediction - Jan 18, 2022

We saw a very high-scoring match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe as over 596 runs were scored. The pitch was absolutely flat and batsmen from both teams made merry. Sri Lanka came out the winner in that contest but Zimbabwe showed that it is not going to be a pushover in this series.

The cricket betting sites are offering very short odds on Sri Lanka to win and we saw that even after Zimbabwe scored 296, the odds did not move as much as expected.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe 2nd ODI 2022. The match is going to be played at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele on the 18th of January 2022.

SL vs ZIM Team Previews

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka's bowling was not very effective and a flat surface may have affected their effectiveness further. Of course, the fact is that Sri Lanka's bowling is quite weak. Their fast-bowlers lack pace and the spinners also seemed to be quite easy to face without too much spin on offer. This is not really going to change in the span of a day and so we expect another tough day in the office for them. From a betting perspective, we don't think it is a good idea to bet on the Sri Lanka bowlers.

The batsmen, on the other hand, offer a fantastic opportunity in our opinion. Look at all the top-order batsmen like Pathum Nissianka, Kusal Mendia, Dinesh Chandimal, and Charith Asalankna, and check out their Over/Under line for this match. You can bet on the 'Over' in all cases. You can either do this pre-match or as the wickets fall with in-play betting.

You can look at the Most Sixes and Most Fours betting markets for this match and bet on Sri Lanka, although, the two teams scored the same number of sixes and fours in the opening match.

Zimbabwe played very well and got quite close to pulling off a win. We think if Zimbabwe would have chased in the previous match, it would have had a better chance of winning. The bowling attack for Zimbabwe is severely lacking. Only Blessing Muzarabani is the one bowler that has the pace to be able to trouble the Sri Lankan batsmen, however, he went at close to six runs per over and only picked up one wicket in the previous match. All things considered, we would avoid betting on the Zimbabwe bowlers as well.

Among the batsmen, Sean Williams, Craig Ervine, and Regis Chakabva are the batsmen that you need to focus on. These are the batsmen that reliably score runs for Zimbabwe and they all have a pretty good record against Sri Lanka. The Over/Under betting markets for all three of these players are worth exploring.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch remains very good for batting and in fact, seemed to get better for batting as the match went on. Expect the same during this match as well. We think batting first, teams will need to score at least 330 to feel comfortable defending. Chasing does appear to be a big advantage and should be taken into account while betting.
