What are the hot tips and best bets for the first clash of the long form series?

<div><h2>India vs Bangladesh First Test</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Thursday 14 November, Holkar Stadium, Indore</strong></a></p><p>India goes off no better than 1.11 for a 1-0 lead in the three-Test series against neighbours Bangladesh. If they win the toss and bat at Indore Stadium, Bangladesh may as well pack up and go home. In the last two years India have batted first 15 times at home – they have won 13 and drawn two.</p><p>And although there is little form to go on with regards to the pitch, we can expect a flat track to aid the hosts with a monstrous total first up. In the only Test there three years ago, India amassed 557 against New Zealand. Virat Kohli made a double century and Ajinkya Rahane 188. In first-class cricket, it has been a bat-dominated surface, too.</p><p>But all is not lost for punters, even though the match odds contest is unlikely even simmer. Bangladesh, don’t forget, are without key batters Shakib-al-Hasan and Tamim Iqbal and it is highly unlikely they’re going to bat long enough and deep enough to upset the hosts. The side markets provide us with significant edges.</p><p>It is true that in each of the markets we’re going to target, we’re betting favourites. That can often make us feel a little uncomfortable because the immediate reaction of a punter when perusing a price list is to try to get the shortest of all beat. But not this time.</p><p>Kohli and Ravi Ashwin are value for top India batsman and top India bowler respectively. As you can see from our hard-researched charts below, the duo is underrated by the bookies even though they are no better than 3.25 (9/4 <a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betway</a>) and 3.0 (2/1 <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfair</a>, <a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paddy Power</a>).</p><h2>Last two years India top batsman wins/matches</h2><p>Kohli 9/20</p><p>Pujara 5/20</p><p>Rohit 0/8</p><p>Rahane 1/19</p><p>Vijay 0/10</p><p>Hardik 1/8</p><p>Dhawan 1/8</p><p>Ashwin 1/15</p><p>Jadeja 1/11</p><p>Pant 1/10</p><p>T=tie</p><p> </p><h2>India top bowler wins/matches</h2><p>Bumrah 2 t/11</p><p>Shami 2t/18</p><p>Ishant 2 t/18</p><p>Ashwin 7 2t/15</p><p>Jadeja 1/12</p><p>Hardik 1/8</p><p>Umesh 1/8</p><p>Kumar 1 t/3</p><p>Kuldeep 1/4</p><p> </p><h2>Last two years Bangladesh top bat wins/matches</h2><p>M Haque 3/11</p><p>Tamim 3/6</p><p>Mahmudullah 1/11</p><p>Mush 1/9</p><p>A Haque ½</p><p>Das 1/10</p><p>Medhi H Miraz 1/11</p><p>Shakib 0/5</p><p> </p><h2>Last two years Bangladesh top bowler wins/matches</h2><p>Taijul 4 t/9</p><p>Jayed 1t/5</p><p>Sarkar t/5</p><p>Mehidy H Miraz 2 2t/10</p><p>Najeem 1/3</p><p>Razzak t/1</p><p>Shakib 0/5</p><p>Fizz 0/5</p></div>
