The hosts have surprisingly dominated the 5-match series against Australia, securing a clear three point lead in the first three games, coming out to be the superior team. However, Australia managed to bounce back in the 4th game and will aim to register another win, in order to salvage their pride in this series. Bangladesh is set to host Australia for the final T20I of the 5-match series on August 9 at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka at 5:30 PM (IST) leading the series 3-1.
Having clinched the series already, Bangladesh have looked in remarkable form throughout the series, overpowering the visitors. Key batsmen Naim Sheikh and Mahmudullah would be the top picks for batters from the Bangladeshi side given their performance in the series so far. All-rounder Shakib Al Hasan who has been one of the top players for the hosts should be a must have in one’s fantasy and is an excellent choice for captain. Additionally, Mustafizur Rahman and Shoriful Islam can fetch some good points from the bowling end.
Although the Aussies have not looked in their best form in this series, they managed to bounce back after losing 3 games back to back at the hand of the visitors. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh, wicket-keeper batsmen Matthew Wade and Moises Henriques are the best picks from the Australian side, with the former being a wise choice for captain. Additionally, last game’s top performer Mitchell Swepson alongside Josh Hazelwood can contribute to fantasy from the bowling department.
