Pakistan are currently on a tour of Bangladesh and they are going to play each other in a two-match Test series that is part of the World Test Championship. There are some important points available, so this is not a "dead" Test Match. They recently played a T20 series and Bangladesh were beaten 3-0, so they will be hoping to do better in the Tests.

So, what is our prediction of who will go on to win the first Test match of the series? Keep reading and all will be revealed.

Bangladesh Team Preview

Bangladesh will have an uphill task in this match, that is for sure. In past Tests, they have prepared pitches that turn square when playing teams that are not used to such conditions and this allowed their spin bowlers to dominate. The idea behind this is that their own spin bowlers are superior to their opponent's and that their batters are experienced at facing those types of conditions. However, this is something that will not work against Pakistan.

The absence of Mohammad Mahmudullah, who recently retired, and Shakib Al Hasan, who is injured, will be a big setback for the Bangladesh team. Al Hasan has been one of the best all-rounders in the world for years now and is their talisman.

When it comes to online cricket betting at whatever betting sites for cricket that you have an account with, our strategy would be bet against the Bangladesh team wherever it is possible. For example, in the over/under market for individual batsmen, opt for the under option, or opt for the under option for the Total Score. We believe that Mushfiqur Rahim and Mominul Haque are their two best batsmen, so if you want to bet on their top scorer, we would opt for one of these.

If there are some helpful conditions, then the bowlers might be able to give Bangladesh a bit of resistance. Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan are the bowlers that we feel are their most dangerous, so if you are looking at betting on the Top Bowler for the Bangladesh team, we would suggest that you put your money on one of those.

Pakistan Team News

Pakistan have been playing some great cricket with Babar Azam as their captain, and it seems like Pakistan want to take the World Test Championship seriously too. This two-match series against Bangladesh is a great way for them to get their campaign off to a flyer and pick up maximum points.

We think that the Pakistan team has a better batting line-up than Bangladesh, and their bowling attack just happens to be one of the best in the cricket world. We are quite looking forward to watching Fawad Alam bat and would recommend that you opt for him as their top batsmen, if that is the type of market that you like to bet on.

Alam is a very good player of spin bowling, and has been scoring plenty of runs against different opponents in all conditions, and we do not think that it is going to be any different against Bangladesh. When it comes to the Top Bowler, we like the look of Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Nawaz, so you should think about putting your money on one of these if you are going to think about betting on this market.

Toss Prediction

The captain that wins the coin toss will more than likely opt to bat first. In Bangladesh in test match cricket, batting first is the best option because the surface will deteriorate quickly, and batting last on it is not something that you will really want to do. If the pitch is spinning on day one, you can only imagine what it will be doing on Day four or five.

Pitch Conditions

The conditions will be difficult for the batsmen. The pitch is more than likely going to be slow and will spin sharply from the start. The team that bats first will look to put a score of about 350 on the board, so that they will have plenty of scoreboard pressure when their opponents are batting.

Our Match Prediction

Our cricket match prediction for this Test is that Pakistan will go on to win. However, if Bangladesh win the toss and bat first, then it might be wise to consider putting money on them to win the match. Although, even if they do win the toss, we still think that Pakistan's batting superiority will see them over the line and give them a 1-0 lead in the series.

Our match prediction:

Pakistan to win
