Bangladesh vs Australia Tips


Mitchell Marsh was in superb form in his last T20I series. The value is on him to continue his fine form in the opening match against Bangladesh.

  • Bangladesh’s Soumya Sarkar has scored 50+ runs in 2 of his last 3 T20I matches.
  • Bangladesh are missing Tamim Iqbal and Mushifqur Rahim for this series.
  • Australia have won their last 4 T20I matches against Bangladesh.
  • Australia’s Mitchell Marsh has scored 30+ runs in 4 of his last 5 T20I matches.

Head to Head


Australia have won their last four T20I matches against Bangladesh. Their last encounter took place back in 2016 where Australia were victorious by three wickets.

Bangladesh Form


Bangladesh have lost four of their six T20I matches since cricket returned from the pandemic. Their most recent series ended in a 2-1 victory in Zimbabwe.

Soumya Sarkar was the form player in Zimbabwe, scoring 50+ runs in the first and third match, both of which were won by Bangladesh. His 68 runs in the 3rd T20I helped Bangladesh chase down Zimbabwe’s 193 runs to win by five wickets.

In home conditions Bangladesh is a threat to any side and they will fancy their chances against an Australia team that tends to struggle against spin.

Bangladesh Team News


Mushfiqur Rahim has been ruled out of the series against Australia due to COVID-19 protocols. Head coach Russell Domingo has hit out at Australia for their stringent return to play requirements.

Tamim Iqbal is also unavailable for this series.

Australia Form


Australia arrived in Bangladesh straight from the West Indies where they won the ODI series 2-1 but lost the T20I series 4-1.

The Aussies will hope to rectify their batting in this series with the T20I World Cup in October this year. They struggled in the Caribbean as far as run scoring goes, only Mitchell Marsh really found some form in the shortest format.

The Australia allrounder scored 51, 54, 9, 75 and 30 runs in the five T20I matches. Another series with that sort of form should consolidate his place in the squad for the World Cup.

Australia Team News


Australia are still without a number of their big players. David Warner, Steven Smith and Glenn Maxwell opted out of the tour while regular captain, Aaron Finch is injured. Matthew Wade will take over the captaincy.
