Bangladesh vs Australia, Third T20I, Match Preview

Bangladesh will take on Australia in the third T20I to win their maiden international series win over Aussies, while visitors would look to bounce back in the series. 

Match Timings: Aug 06, 5:30 PM IST

Team Preview 

In just two days, Bangladesh has changed the story of the 5-match T20I series, and hosts are ready to surprise Aussies in T20 format. With disciplined bowling and mature batting, Bangladesh also won the second game by 5 wickets. It was another dominating show from the hosts. Australia’s top-order mistakes haunted them again and they scored just 121 in the first innings. Bangladesh lost wickets on regular basis but they held the nerves in the end. They are on the verge of winning a historic series win against Australia. This is also the first-ever bilateral T20I series for both sides. Earlier, hosts troubled Australia with smart bowling and defended a modest total in the opening game. 

Australia are two down in series and they cannot afford a loss here. They have been a poor side in T20 format. They are going through their tough phase in the shorter format of cricket. Aussies are missing their key players in the batting lineup. Mitchell Marsh is the only good performer in batting. Pace duo Starc and Hazlewood are two bowling warriors for them. Australia last won a T20I series in South Africa last year. Since then, they lost against England, India, New Zealand, and West Indies. Out of 18 matches, Australia won only five matches which is a poor record they ever had in any format. Australia can make changes in their XI. 

On the other hand, Bangladesh are going strong with every game and they are making good use of their home advantage. They can script a history. Hosts have never won a T20I bilateral series against top nations. Hosts don’t have Tamim Iqbal and Rahim but it is allowing other players to perform. They are finding strength in their squad ahead of the T20 WC. Aussies would surely bounce back this time and the series can also find a decider.
