BAN Playing 11: After a historic win in the first T20I, Bangladesh will face Australia in the second T20I here at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. The hosts were clinical in their bowling effort in the last game reminding everyone of their abilities in home conditions. They had plenty of positives as spinners didn’t allow Australia to get away at any point. Along with the spinners, fast bowlers were also impressive with their change of pace. This was Bangladesh’s first ever T20I win over Australia. Before this, they had lost 4 games, all played in T20 World Cups.

Bangladesh’s bowlers led the way to a brilliant win in the last match. The spinners made full use of a slow and turning pitch making life difficult for Australian batsmen. Nasum Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers returning figures of 4-19. Again, they will be a huge threat to Australians. Mustafizur’s return was a big boost for the hosts. The batting though, needs to click and put some runs on the board. The openers need to make full use of powerplay restrictions. Experienced batters like Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah will be crucial.
Mahmudullah (C), Shakib Al Hasan, Nurul Hasan (wk), Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Taijul Islam, Mohammad Naim, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman, Afif Hossain, Rubel Hossain, Mohammad Mithun, Mosaddek Hossain, Soumya Sarkar, Shamim Hossain, Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan.
