BAN vs AUS 2nd T20I: Possible Playing 11 of Australia


AUS Playing 11: Australia will take on Bangladesh in the second T20I here at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. Having lost the first match, Australia will be under pressure here and they quickly need to readdress themselves before it gets too late. The way their young batsmen struggled against spin would have raised some concerns in the dressing room. They had also lost their last T20I series to West Indies. With T20 World Cup not too far away, they quickly need to find their best combination. In the head-to-head record, Australia leads Bangladesh 4-1 in T20Is.

Team News

  • Australian bowlers were impressive which means the bowling line-up is likely to be the same.
  • In batting, Ben McDermott could replace Alex Carey in the opening position.

Australia will look for an improved performance in the batting department. This will be a great opportunity for players like Josh Philippe and Ashton Turner to stake their claims on these difficult pitches. Mitchell Marsh was the only Australian batsman in the last match who looked like scoring big runs. The allrounder will be crucial in this match too. The bowling line-up looks well settled with both fast bowlers and spinners bowling well in tandem.
