After Bangladesh were the better side in the T20I series opener, the two teams are going head to head on Wednesday. Post that, the teams will meet for the third T20I on Friday. While Bangladesh batted first and scored 131/7 in the opening game of the series, there are clearly some major things missing in the Aussie setup as they were bowled out for 108 runs, far from being the world-beating and champion team we know. The Aussies will need to gather themselves and dust themselves off before they can aim at putting up a good show in the remaining matches of the series.
Big series for both the teams heading into the T20 World Cup. Both sides won't mind making mistakes there than doing it in a crucial position in the T20 World Cup. Thus, the Aussies would want to work on the mistakes that they did in the first match and try and not repeat them in the second game. Their batters need to step up, it's as simple as that. Although the Bangladesh bowlers did the job for them, giving them a lead in the series and helping them win their first t20I ever against the mighty Aussies, they would also expect more from their batters than the 130 odd that they managed after batting first in the first T20I.
