    The hosts needs to sort out their batting problems at the earliest. Their top order has struggled to Australian pacers throughout the series. Mahmudullah and Shakib Al Hasan have been inconsistent so far though the pitches have been difficult. Bowlers have shined with spinner Mahedi Hasan consistently bowling well with the new ball. The biggest positive, though, has been Mustafizur Rahman’s performance whose wily cutters have looked unplayable.
