BAN vs AUS Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for the 2nd T20I, Australia tour of Bangladesh, 2021.
Bangladesh will take on Australia in the 2nd T20I at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka.
BAN vs AUS 2nd T20I Match Preview
Bangladesh has started the series with a bang and won the first game comfortably by 23 runs. They didn’t start well with the bat and managed to post a total of just 131 runs. Mohammad Naim gave a decent start for the team and scored 30 runs. Shakib Al Hasan also scored 36 runs but looked slow in his approach. All other batters were dismissed cheaply and hence were not able to finish well.
The bowling department was outstanding for them, especially the spinners as they took the game away from the opposition. Nasum Ahmed was the pick from the bowlers and ended his spell with the figures of 4/19 in his 4 overs. Mustafizur and Shoriful Islam also bowled pretty well at the end and picked up 2 wickets each.
The Bangladeshi team will be high on confidence going into this game and will look to continue their winning streak in this game as well.
The Aussies are missing their top-class batsman and are looking very weak with the bat. Except for Mitchell Marsh, no other batter can play a big inning for the team from the last series.
Their bowlers perfectly set the tone for their batters in the last game and restricted the home side to a low total of 131. The chase looked pretty simple, but the Aussies were not able to play the spin. Hazlewood and Starc bowled brilliantly and picked up 3 and 4 wickets respectively in their 4 overs. Adam Zampa also bowled well and picked up a wicket.
Their batting looked very average and was bundled out for just 108 runs. Mitch Marsh was the pick from batters as he scored 45 runs, but all other batsmen were dismissed cheaply. The team is highly dependent on the top order, and the middle-order looks very weak. Skipper Matthew Wade has pushed himself up down the order but failed to impress in the last game.
The Aussies will hope for a better batting performance from the batters in this game and will look for a win.
