When Australia were scheduled to travel to Bangladesh for their 5-match T20I series, no one would have expected the Aussies to experience such demolition at the hands of the hosts. Bangladesh won the last T20I in emphatic style and sealed the series 4-1 by bundling out Matthew Wade-led Australia for their lowest ever score of 62 runs in the format. After this disappointing performance by Australia, Twitterati have fund enough material to troll the away side.
One might suggest that the marquee cricketing stars of Australian cricket were missing from this entire series, yet they had ample talent at their disposal to clinch this series in comfortable fashion. After Bangladesh managed to score 122 runs in their entire quota of 20 overs on Monday, even a win for Australia would have saved their pride. Yet this game was more about their cricketing pride than anything else after already losing 3 straight games.
However, after the first wicket fell in the second over, Australia never managed to recollect their innings as only 2 of their batsmen managed to score runs in double digits (Matthew Wade 22 and Ben McDermott 17). Bangladesh were led by their key all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan with 4 wickets along with 1 maiden over as well registered against his name. Furthermore, Australia’s previous lowest score in T20I was set in 2014 against India, where they were bowled out for 86 runs. Interestingly, both of Australia’s lowest T20I scores have come up at the same venue, Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Bangladesh.
