ban vs aus Match Prediction & Analysis

Australia and Bangladesh are all set to play 5 T20I matches and both teams will play this series with T20I world cup on back of their minds. Australia will look to find their best players in the sub-continental conditions which will be similar in the UAE. Bangladesh on the other hand will be delighted to host Aussies for the first time for a T20I series in their home soil. Both teams miss a lot of first choice players but the players in the squad will audition for their selection for the World Cup. We can expect both teams to give spirited performances with a lot at stake in this series.

Teams Preview

Bangladesh Preview

Bangladesh will open with Mohammed Naim and Soumya Sarkar in the absence of Tamim Iqbal. They will have a strong middle order with the likes of Skipper Mahmudullah, Shakkib Al Hasan, Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, and Keeper Nurul Hasan. .

Shoriful Islam and Mustafizur Rahman will their new ball bowlers with a stiff competition between Taskin Ahmed, Mohammed Saiffudin, and Rubel Hossain for the third seamer`s slot. Taijul Islam will partner Shakib in the spin department with the likes of Mahmudullah, Shamim Hossain, and Afif Hossain capable of bowling some vital overs in the middle phase.

Top players to bet on:

Shakib Al Hasan – Shakib Had a brilliant ODI series and he is yet to make a mark with the bat in the T20Is and we expect him to take his chance in the decider game to help his team clinch the T20I series.

Shoriful Islam – Shoriful Islam picked 6 wickets in 3 matches at an economy rate of 7 RPO in the last series. We expect him to take wickets in this series and trouble the batsmen consistently.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah (c), Nurul Hasan (wk), Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin/Taskin Ahmed, Taijul Islam, Shoriful Islam.

Australia Preview

Alex Carey will lead the team in the absence of Aaron Finch and will have a huge responsibility of leading the youngsters. Josh Phillipe and Mathew Wade are expected to open the batting with Mitchell Marsh, Moises Henriques, and Ashton Turner expected to slot in the middle order alongside their skipper.

Australia has a host of fast bowlers in their squad and we expect the trio of Josh Hazelwood, Mitchell Starc, and Andrew Tye to play in the first match. Adam Zampa will be their premier spinner with the likes of Mitchell Swepson and Ashton Agar fighting it out for the second spinner`s slot.

Top players to bet on:

Mitchell Marsh – Marsh had an excellent series against West Indies with 219 runs and 8 wickets.  He was the top run scorer and wicket-taker for the Aussies in the last series.

Adam Zampa: Adam Zampa is expected to play a huge role in the sub-continental pitches and he picked up 4 wickets at an economy rate of 8 RPO in the series against West Indies.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

Alex Carey (c), Josh Philippe, Mitchell Marsh, Moises Henriques, Ashton Turner/Dan Christian, Matthew Wade (wk), Andrew Tye, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar/Mitchell Swepson, Josh Hazlewood

Weather Conditions

Dhaka is expected to have rainy weather with thunderstorms on the match day. And we expect rain and DLS equation to make appearance in this match.

Venue Details

Dhaka pitch is traditionally a slow track with low bounce and slow pace. Batsmen will find it harder to hit the ball along the lines and we expect the average scores to be around 150-160 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Dhaka has a 22-22 win-loss record for batting first and second in T20Is so far. We expect both captains to bowl first with new pitch on offer and rain threat looming for the match.     

BAN vs AUS Winning Prediction

Bangladesh have never won a T20I match against Australia so far but they have a better team composition and balance to take advantage of the conditions on offer in this series. They have good depth in batting line-up with a number of spin options if needed. Australia on other hand come of a series loss with no batsmen barring Mitchell marsh scoring runs. And they need to adjust to the sub-continental conditions in this series. We expect Bangladesh to win their maiden T20I match against Australia.

Bangladesh will win the match & Lead the series 1-0
