Nottingham, June 20, Thursday at 03:00 PM IST
The five-times champions, Australia will face off Bangladesh- who has performed pretty well so far in the tournament – at Nottingham on Thursday afternoon.
With 8 points in 5 games, Australia is playing their natural game of domination and have almost made it to the other side of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019-the semi-finals. In 5 games, they have won four games and have faced a solitary defeat against India.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, has played up to the expectations and have done pretty well in the half of the tournament so far. In 5 games, they have two wins and two defeats while one of their encounters against Sri Lanka got abandoned due to rain. They will be looking to draw inspiration from their thumping 7 wickets win over Windies in the last encounter.
The clash will begin at 03:00 PM IST.
Looking at the previous contests at Nottingham, one can easily say batters have got some extra favour from the wicket. The average first innings score at the venue is 252.
As far as weather updates are concerned, some scattered showers are forecasted but there’s nothing to worried of as the game will progress. Seam bowlers will get little assistance early on after which it will be completely a batting surface.
