Fresh from their first T20 win against Australia in the previous game, Bangladesh hold a 1-0 lead against Australia. They will take that confidence into the second match of the series, also to be played in Dhaka, on the 4th of August 2021.
Bangladesh vs Australia 2nd T20 2021
Bangladesh is expected to play the same team as the first T20. It won the first match by defending a low score of 132 and will expect more of the same from their spinners.
Likely Playing XI of Bangladesh
Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Shakib Al Hasan, Nurul Hasan (wk), Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed
Australia were in a comfortable position at the halfway mark in the first game. Hence, their focus would be on better application from the batters rather than making changes to the side.
Likely Playing XI of Australia
Josh Philippe, Alex Carey, Mitchell Marsh, Moises Henriques, Ashton Turner, Matthew Wade (c & wk), Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Andrew Tye/Mitchell Swepson, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
Pitch and Weather Conditions
The weather forecast is for rain in Dhaka, so a shortened game will favour the chasing side. The pitch was slow and very helpful for the spinners in the first game, and it's expected to be another low-scoring game with slow bowlers dictating the flow.
