BAN vs AUS: Bangladesh cross swords with Australia in the 2nd T20I of this 5-match T20I series between these two nations. The match will be taking place at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. The contest between these two teams is slated to begin at 5:30 PM (IST).
Bangladesh have been in blistering form and they stunned Australia in the first T20I to register their maiden victory against Australia in the T20I form. It is indeed a historical moment for the Bangladeshi team but they cannot bask in the euphoria. Australia would come back stronger and the Asian team has to brace for that challenge.
The spinners of Bangladesh were in supreme form and they picked up 6 wickets and were a potent threat to the second-string Australian outfit. Nasum Ahmed picked up 4 wickets. The Australian batting department is to be blamed for their loss and nobody except Mitchell Marsh could muster a solid knock. The likes of Moises Henriques and Matthew Wade need to be step up, if Australia are to come back into this game.
