Bangladesh has won the first two matches of the series and now leads 2-0. Australia will be searching for answers as it tries to stay alive in the 5-match series. The third match is also going to be played in Dhaka, on the 6th of August 2021.
Bangladesh vs Australia 3rd T20 2021
Bangladesh played an unchanged eleven for its previous match and it really has no reason to change anything just yet. They have made the most of slow wickets and will expect it to wrap up the series.
Likely Playing XI of Bangladesh
Mohammad Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah (c), Nurul Hasan (wk), Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed
Australia also chose not to make a change for the previous match it played. For this match, it will have no option to tweak the balance and be more competitive. Specialist leg spinner Mitchell Swepson will be hard to overlook. The top order had lacked solidity in the absence of Aaron Finch and changes are expected there too.
Likely Playing XI of Australia
Josh Philippe, Alex Carey, Mitchell Marsh, Moises Henriques, Ashton Turner/Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade (c & wk), Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Andrew Tye/Mitchell Swepson, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
Pitch and Weather Conditions
The forecast is for some rain in Dhaka on the day of the match. The chances of rain do recede as the time of the start of the match approaches. The pitch has been very slow and difficult to score off. Another low-scoring match where 150 could be a winning total is likely.
