It is quite rare, that both teams can go full force with their roster in a test match. Let’s have a look at the following example. One team beat another team a couple of times in a row, but those matches have been during the last couple of years.

A lot can even change during one year, let alone a couple of years. That is the reason why online betting for such a huge event as Word Cup 2022 is very popular all around the globe.
