Sri Lanka vs West Indies 2nd Test Betting Tips 29/11/2021

Teams Status

Sri Lanka

The opening Test was pretty much as was expected. Sri Lanka batted first, piled up a big total before bowling out the Windies easily, and then batted again to set up a mammoth target, which the tourists never came close to reaching.

The home side dominated from the very first session, with their openers – Pathum Nissanka and Dimuth Karunaratne – giving them a 139-run start and the Lankans never looked back.

Captain Karunaratne obviously led from the front, scoring 147 in the first innings and another 83 in the second as he was later deservedly named the man of the match. Like him, Ramesh Mendis was excellent in both the innings, taking seven wickets overall.

A blueprint has been set and the Lankans would want to follow it. Although even a Draw would get them the series win, they’d certainly want to play with the same strategy and go for a 2-0 sweep.

West Indies

The tourists were clearly the second-best side in the opening match but their main problems were with their batting.

Consistency was a massive issue as those that got some runs in the first innings fell flat in the second, and those that got runs in the second had failed earlier.

The Windies batters, as is was expected, just could not handle the Sri Lankan spin of Lasith Embuldeniya, Ramesh Mendis, and Praveen Jayawickrama, especially on days four and five wickets when the wicket had become even more spin-friendly.

Roston Chase’s five-for in the first innings and Nkrumah Bonner’s stubborn and unbeaten 68 in the final innings were the two best contributions.

It is clear that these conditions and this format are not suitable for the men from the Caribbean. Can they save the second Test? It’s very difficult to see that happening.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sri Lanka to win @ 1.61

Unless the heavens up or second comings of Brian Charles Lara and Sir Garfield Sobers happen overnight, there is no way this West Indies side can survive against Sri Lanka under these conditions. We backed the Lankans in the first stanza and we’re doing it again. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Shai Hope to score more than 19.5 runs in 1st innings @ 1.87

Shai Hope failed in both the innings of the first Test, contributing a meager 10 and three. He is not a world-beater but he is a better batter than that and should do better now, if not set the world alight. 20 runs over more is all we want from him in the first innings of the second Test. The odds have been sourced from Dafabet.


Sri Lanka are the better side playing under supportive conditions. There is no reason for this not to be another drubbing.
