BAN vs IND Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Dec 10, 2022
Bangladesh has won the ODI series 2-0 and continued its excellent run in this format. Both matches have been close but we think no one would disagree that Bangladesh deserved to win both those matches. Rohit Sharma and Deepak Chahar picked up injuries in the previous match to add to the one that Kuldeep Sen picked up in the first match.
This means India's problems are already compounded. The cricket betting sites still have India as the overwhelming favorite to win this match. This does not make too much sense to us as Bangladesh has already shown there is not too much difference between the two teams in current conditions.
The home team would certainly back itself to win 3-0.

BAN vs IND Team Previews
Bangladesh's performances in the first two matches have followed a very similar pattern. The team has managed to bowl well and pick up early wickets before allowing India to get to a bigger total than expected. In return, Bangladesh's top order has not score many runs before being rescued and carried over the line by the lower order.
Mehidy Hasan Miraz was the hero for Bangladesh once more as scored a century at number 8 and then picked up two crucial wickets during the chase as well. Mahmudullah scored 77 as well and was integral to the partnership with Mehidy Hasan that eventually changed the course of the match.
Bangladesh will be hoping that its leading batters like Litton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, and Mushfiqur Rahim can also get into the act. With the Bangladeshi bowling at its best in home conditions, even an average performance by the batters has a good chance of turning into a match-winning one.
Mustafizur Rahman, Ebadot Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and Shakib Al Hasan all give Bangladesh four quality bowling options. If the pitch is anything like what we saw for the first two matches, then Bangladesh has a great chance of winning this match as well.

India will be without Rohit Sharma in this match and we think that may be a good thing. It will allow them to play one out of Ishan Kishan, Rahul Tripathi, or Rajat Patidar and give them a chance. India's white-ball teams are looking tired and need an injection of youth.
Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli have both struggled for runs so far. They will be under pressure to score in conditions that they are not the fondest of. Shreyas Iyer continues his brilliant ODI season and will be the premier wicket that Bangladesh is after.
KL Rahul at number five seems locked in for the time being as well.
Despite some very big names in this lineup, the current form is a big issue. Also, there is very little batting to follow after them. Washington Sundar and Axar Patel have been picked as spin-bowling all-rounders but their batting credentials are still unproven.
Why Shardul Thakur was picked for this tour is anyone's guess but with injuries decimating the squad, he is also certain to play. In fact, India may be forced to play with five bowlers and add another batter to their lineup. Umran Malik, Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, and Washington Sundar could be the five bowlers for India in this match.

Pitch and Conditions
The weather forecast for Chattogram on match day is excellent. There is no rain predicted and we should not have any interruptions. As far as the pitch goes, we are hoping for a surface that is slightly better than what we saw in Dhaka.
That could allow the batters to play with a bit more freedom and target a score of around 280-300 in this match.
BAN vs IND Betting Tips
We think India will be forced to play with a combination that is better than what it started out with. Injuries will make it add an additional batter to the lineup and thus there will be more depth to attack with. The bowling is a concern and does not have too much quality but Bangladesh's batting is not the most convincing either.
We think the odds have shifted a little but not enough to go big. This means you should place 50% of your purse on India before the match and then add as the match progresses.
Bet on India to win.
