England Test Cricket Betting

A very closely fought ODI series has definitely unraveled the prospect of another close series as Bangladesh and England begin their two-match Test series starting at Chittagong on Thursday, October 20. The two Tests are expected to serve as preparation for England ahead of their Indian tour later this year.

Bangladesh may have taken huge strides in ODI cricket, but in Test matches, they still remain a weak team. The hosts have lost all of their eight Test matches against England and this record doesn’t look likely to be changing this series. But there is anticipation among the passionate home supporters that this stat could change.

The hosts have stacked their squad with off-spinners to counter the left-handers in the English side. Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim remain their best bets with the bat, while Tamim Iqbal would want to revive his good old memories against the visitors.

For England, the return of Alastair Cook at the top is a huge boost. There is no doubt that they want to identify a template to beat India later in the season and this series is just a prelude. Finalizing an opening partner for Cook is high on the agenda as also is the search for a Jimmy Anderson replacement – although the pacer is expected to be back for the India series.

After a long time, the spin stocks for England look exciting with the likes of Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid leading the attack. Veteran Gareth Batty is also in the squad, though it’s difficult to see him get a game. Watch out for the all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes who give great balance to Cook.

There’s no doubt who the bettors market is punting on to win the series. England is a runaway leader and there is no value in that. So instead we will focus on some of the player markets.

Root is a top punt to end up as England’s best batsman. For the hosts, Tamim Iqbal is an interesting punt to end up their best batsman.

With the ball, Shakib Al Hasan looks a very good punt to end up as the hosts’ best bowler, while at these odds, Stuart Broad is worthy of a look from the England side.

Tip: Stuart Broad England Most Wickets – $6.00 at Sportsbet
