Youth sometimes can overcome experience, as a young West Indies side stormed to victory over Bangladesh in the first Test. Can they secure a series win when the second Test takes place from February 11-15.
Bangladesh v West Indies 2nd Test Betting Tips & Predictions: Match Winner
When it comes to Test cricket, it doesn’t matter how old you are, if you are good enough you are old enough. A young West Indies side showed plenty of heart as they recorded a three-wicket success over Bangladesh in Chattogram – something which I predicted by the way as a 13/2 shot. It’s not exaggerating to say these youngsters a playing for their future, if they perform like they did in the first Test then they will pushing to knock out some of the players who have missed out on this tour on a more regular basis. I am backing youth to overcome once again with West Indies winning back-to-back Test matches.
Bangladesh v West Indies 2nd Test Betting Tips & Predictions: West Indies Top Runs Scorer
I correctly backed Kraigg Brathwaite would top score for West Indies in their first innings. He managed to post 76 from 111 balls with 12 fours, but it was a player on his Test debut that took all the plaudits. Kyle Mayers showed glimpses of what he is capable of in the first innings as he made an impressive 40 before being trapped LBW. He showed more than glimpses in the second innings as he smashed seven sixes and 20 fours on his way to an unbeaten 210. All eyes will be on the 28-year-old in the second Test to see if he can produce that kind of innings on a regular basis. I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt and back him to top score in the first innings to show he is not a one Test wonder.
Bangladesh v West Indies 2nd Test Betting Tips & Predictions: West Indies Top Wicket Taker
Unfortunately for me, Kemar Roach couldn’t produce the goods to help me claim a hat-trick of wins in the first innings as he took just one wicket. His second innings performance was no better to be fair, as he failed to claim a single victim. I’m not going to hang him out to dry, I am sticking with him. The 32-year-old has 205 Test wickets to his name so he is not a bad bowler, I am putting my faith in him again to take the most wickets in the first innings.
