Australia will hope for a clear day. The head-to-head tally clearly favours the men from Down Under; who have won 18 of 19 times the sides have clashed. Their only loss against Bangladesh had come in 2005 courtesy Mohammad Ashraful. Even at neutral venues Australia have the upper hand having won 4 of the 5 games both sides have featured. Bangladesh’s biggest chance lies in a truncated match, for the shorter the duration of the match, the more likely the weaker side is to pull off an upset.

Bangladesh will be happy with their batting unit in totality. With Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim going great guns against England, their top order looks reasonably strong. Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes and Shakib Al Hasan also got starts but failed to make it count in the middle failing to false shots.
