BAN vs AUS: Australia in Bangladesh: Preview
Bangladesh won a historic first-ever T20 international victory over Australia in the opening match of the series and would be quite confident going into this match. They did a brilliant job against the visitors. After a low score of 131, Bangladesh backed their bowlers to take down the Australians while chasing. It was a low scoring match & batsman from both the sides should make a note of it. Bangladesh’s batting is a bit fragile and can be put under pressure but its bowling is definitely capable of keeping Australia under pressure in this series.
Australia has been quite poor on pitches that have favored the spinners in recent matches and it will need to be much better to be able to challenge Bangladesh. We saw the same when Australia was playing against West Indies in T20 format. Things are not looking very good for Australia going into this match. The conditions are not what the Australian batters enjoy and playing two consecutive matches is only going to make them even worse. Australia’s bowling line up is doing a great job but it’s time their batsman should start scoring & win matches.
BAN vs AUS: 2nd T20: Weather Report
The rain did not fall and we had a full, uninterrupted match to watch. The forecast for this next match is also a bit grim and we could have some interruptions but hopefully, the rain will continue to stay away during the time of the match.
BAN vs AUS: 2nd T20: Pitch Report
The pitch at the Shere Bangla was slow and low. It offered some turn (not too extravagant) that could make batting difficult. Spinners and fast-bowlers that take the pace off of the deliveries are going to be hard to score off.

BAN vs AUS: 2nd T20:: Match Prediction
Australia looked so poor in the first match that we think the market is perhaps overvaluing them right now. The odds to bet on Bangladesh are quite fantastic considering they just dominated Australia. The conditions are heavily loaded in Bangladesh’s favor and we think they have a great chance of winning once more.
