The series between Bangladesh and Australia will be written in the history books where Bangladesh team won their 1st ever T20I series against Australia. The Bangladesh team have all their resources, but the Australians were without their top batsmen like Aaron Finch, David Warner, and Glenn Maxwell. Their absence were felt due to the bad batting effort by the visitors in a pitch supporting the slow bowlers. But the Australia team would take a deep breath after finally securing a win in the 4th T20I, with 1 T20I still to be played.
The batting all-rounder Dan Christian finally came out of his bad form and contributed for the Australian team which ultimately helped them to win the 4th T20I match by 3 wickets. Being promoted to the top-order, he was given a signal to play attacking cricket to put pressure on the spinners of the Bangladesh team.
In the 4th over of the Australian innings, Shakib thought of taking wickets off his arm ball to the right-handers. But, Christian had another thoughts during his stay and made his intent clear in the first ball of the innings. Shakib’s over read 6,6,6,0,6,6. The batsman was dismissed after hitting 39 off 15 balls but provided a momentum to the team in chasing down the score.

The Bangladesh team have been performing well in both the departments, particularly with the ball. Their batting was disappointing in the 4th T20I, which made sure that the Australian team chase down the total. It is expected that Bangladesh team would go all guns blazing in the final T20I.
The visitors, Australian team will be upbeat after winning the 4th T20I, albeit in a close fashion. The attacking option chosen by Dan Christian proved to be a saviour for the team in tough conditions and they will look to replicate in the 5th T20I. Their bowling is doing fine work, and must ensure to maintain the same performance to guarantee a win in the 5th T20I.
