Australia was once a mighty and undefeated team in white-ball setup, now the legacy is fading away quite drastically particularly in T20s. Australia doesn’t have a consistent winning record in the history of T20 internationals. They are yet to lift the WCT20 title, which very much demands their need for improvement in limited-overs.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh is a proven performer in their home games in all formats due to the turning tracks they possess and the bowlers who will stand out in friendly conditions.
Bangladesh team confidence is on a high after tasting success in limited-overs fixtures of zimbabwe tour. Meanwhile, the Australian team is already looking for the proper combination of players to win a game. They are coming into the series with a 4-0 loss against the world champions West Indies.
Australia bowling department is doing a decent job with the ball, it is their batting that led them down on both the 1st and 2nd T20I against Bangladesh. The absence of experienced batters like David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, and injury to Aaron finch, steven smith are considered to be the main reason for their batting vulnerabilities. Only Mitchell Marsh is holding the fort for them, he hardly gets supports from the other batters. Meanwhile, Bangladesh included Nasum Ahmed in the team whom Australia never faced on an international stage exposed their spin weakness on a slow tacky pitch by claiming a 4fer and man of the performance award.
The players who are missing this tour warner, maxwell, and smith are good players of spin in all conditions, they can attack, rotating strikes, and score quick runs against any oppositions. It will be difficult for Australia to win the series with the current squad they have in Bangladesh. They need a big performance from their middle-order to have any chance of winning. If they win from here on then we will be witnessing something miracle for sure!!!
