Bangladesh vs Pakistan 2nd Test Betting Tips 04/12/2021

Teams Status


Pakistan have the opportunity to make their tour of Bangladesh a perfect one. If they beat their hosts in the final Test as well, which when coupled with their first Test win and a clean sweep of the T20I series, would make their visit of these shores flawless.

Based on the evidence of the first Test, they should achieve the feat unless something miraculous happens. After all, they won that game despite some of their best batters, including Babar Azam, Fawad Alam, and Mohammad Rizwan failing.

With the series not in the bag, expect Babar and Co to go with their full-strength side and try their hardest to win the second Test.


Bangladesh were extremely poor in the T20I but they were a lot better in the first Test and were pretty much in the game, and probably even had designs on a win at the halfway mark before a second innings collapse late on day three threw a spanner in the works.

The positives for them were Liton Das’ batting, with him top-scoring in both the innings. Tajiul Islam’s seven-for in the first innings was also impressive, while Mushfiqur Rahim’s resilient 91 was also commendable.

However, other than those three, few pulled their weight, with the top order failing in both the innings. If the front four do not deliver again, expect the same result as of the series opener.

One major boost for Bangladesh is that star allrounder Shakib Al Hasan has been declared fit to play. Saif Hasan is out with typhoid.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Total runs for Shakib Al Hasan in 1st innings over 21.5 @ 1.87

Shakib averages 68.66 runs in Tests against Pakistan. He is back in the side at a time when his team needs him the most, and with such responsibility on his shoulder, he should deliver. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Total runs for Azhar Ali in 1st innings over 33.5 @ 1.87

The last time Pakistan played a Test match against Bangladesh in Dhaka, the year was in 2015 and Azhar Ali was the player of the match. The right-handed batter had scored 226 in the first innings of that game. With him in the twilight of his career, and some questioning his place in the side, now is the time for Azhar to play big innings on a surface he has excelled on before. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


As was the case last week, Pakistan are again the far more talented side. The only chance Bangladesh have is by preparing a slow, dusty, spin-friendly wicket and letting Tajiul Islam and Co go to work.
