BAN vs AUS Live – BAN vs Australia 2021 Live 2nd T20, Another opportunity awaits for these two teams to work on plans and players to press for selection ahead of the T20 World Cup. The series could not be much more condensed – five matches played across seven days with two sets of back-to-back matches – but it has taken considerable work and negotiation to get this tour on the road.
It will be the first time Bangladesh and Australia have met in bilateral T20Is – their previous four matches have all come in the T20 World Cup. Australia is currently 4-0 up but it would be no surprise to see that record slip over in the coming days with the patched-up nature of their batting line-up, further weakened from the side that lost 4-1 in the West Indies by the absence of Aaron Finch.
In Finch’s absence, they will be led by Matthew Wade. The bowling attack remains potent, but with five matches very quickly, it remains to be seen how many of them – including the likes of Mitchell Starc – play.
There is disgruntlement in the Bangladesh camp that they won’t be able to call on the experience of Mushfiqur Rahim after he was unable to comply with the strict ten-day bubble requirements agreed by the boards to allow this series to go ahead.
Bangladesh are coming off a hard-earned 2-1 victory over Zimbabwe which was secured by their second-highest successful chase. As ever, Shakib Al Hasan will be in front and centre for them and they will also lean on the experience of Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah with the bat and hope to have Mustafizur Rahman back from injury during the series.
