AUS vs BAN Match Preview

Travis Head will have David Warner by his side as they aim to give the team a strong start. Meanwhile, Steve Smith has been struggling to score runs in this series and the team is hoping for a turnaround as the playoffs approach. The top order faced a collapse in the previous match, but Glenn Maxwell's incredible innings helped the team maintain their winning streak.

The team can also rely on the good form of Mitchell Marsh and Marnus Labuschagne. In terms of bowling, Adam Zampa leads the wicket-takers with 20 wickets, while the seam attack is gaining momentum with Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, and Pat Cummins having taken a total of 32 wickets. 

Tanzid Hasan has faced numerous challenges throughout this tournament, whereas Litton Das has managed to score only once above 40 in the past 4 matches. Nevertheless, the supporters will be delighted to witness Najmul Hossain Shanto's impressive knock of 90 runs in the previous game and will anticipate another commendable performance from him.

Considering Shakib Al-Hasan's unavailability for this match, there will be additional pressure on Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mahmudullah, and Mushfiqur Rahim to contribute with runs.

Furthermore, the bowling unit's performance has been rather ordinary. Mehidy Hasan and Shoriful Islam have both taken 10 wickets each, while Taskin Ahmed and Mustafizur Rahman have only managed to secure a total of 8 wickets between them.


Weather Report

The weather will be clear for the most part with some clouds dotting the sky. The temperature will remain between 27 and 32 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

The MCA Stadium offers an excellent batting track and we might be in for another run-fest. The average first-inning score is around 320 but the team batting first will target the 350-run mark. Since this is a day game, dew will not be a factor. The quicker bowlers can expect some assistance from the pitch but will need to be spot-on with their line and length.

Notable stats

Adam Zampa: Unstoppable

Adam Zampa is in terrific form in this World Cup. He has picked up 20 wickets in 8 matches at an average of 19.20 and a strike rate of 20.70.

Team News

Shakib Al-Hasan will be unavailable for this match due to a fractured finger.
