The betting tip is...
India will win
Bangladesh have suddenly lost the depth in their batting lineup and now they are back to their inconsistent performances. In the first innings, the batters struggled to build a constructive partnership and the opening lineup departed early leaving the pressure of scoring runs on the middle order.
The only positive side was the century of Zakir Hasan in the second inning and the quality of bowling Bangladesh displayed in both innings.
Shubhman Gill, Chiteshwar Pujara, and Shreyas Iyer have come out as strong batters from the batting lineup of team India. Cheiteshwar Pujara has made a brilliant comeback to international cricket after staying away from the team for most of the time.
Kuldeep Yadav has displayed his dominance in test cricket again with 5 wickets in the first inning and three wickets in the second inning. The major concern for the team is the pace attack right now.
Bangladesh has failed again to make an impact in Test cricket. Considering the recent performance of Team India, we predict that India will score another win in the second game.
