Australia vs Bangaldesh 2nd T20 Betting Tips

It’s two games in two days as the second T20 kicks off in Dhaka on Wednesday night. Australia’s deficiencies against spin were once again the headline in a 23 run loss in game one. Can the Aussies find a way to combat the Bangladeshi spinners? Or will Bangladesh take an imposing 2-0 lead in the series? We have you covered with the preview and tips for the second T20 of the series!

Bangladesh vs Australia 2nd T20 Betting Tips

Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Wednesday August 4th, 10:00pm AEST

Match Prediction

Despite restricting Bangladesh to 7/131 thanks to an excellent performance by Josh Hazlewood (3/24), Australia were spun out by Nasum Ahmed who took a career best 4/19, as the Aussies were bundled out for 108. Ahmed and Shakib Al Hassan were comprehensively beating the Australian batsmen in the air and off the pitch.

Bangladesh will look to continue their use of their plethora of left arm spinners against the Aussies in game two. Outside of Mitch Marsh’s stoic 45, Australia’s batsmen were timid against the Bangladesh spinners. Nasum Ahmed, Mahedi Hasan and Shakib Al Hassan took a combined 6/65 off 12 overs. Australia don’t stand a chance in this series if they continue to play spin in the manner they did in game one.

With Bangladesh missing Tamim Iqbal and Linton Das, this series will continue to be filled with low scoring encounters on a pitch that provides plenty of spin. These low scoring matches are going to play right into Bangladesh’s hands, especially when they can bowl 12 overs of spin bowling every game.

Shakib was important with the ball, but his knock of 36 off 33 anchored the Bangladesh innings, giving their bowlers a total to bowl at. Matthew Wade could be shifted up the order in game, as the Australians have stated they will be more aggressive against spin in game two.

With a low scoring affair inbound between two undermanned batting units, Bangladesh’s spinners will be confident against a vulnerable Australian line up that has almost no experience in Bangladesh. Bangladesh are in a prime position to take game two in Dhaka.

Bangladesh Prop

Shakib Al Hasan is the number two ranked all rounder in T20I and the only player ranked as a top five all rounder in all three formats. Against Australia in T20I cricket, Shakib has taken 6 wickets from 17 overs, at an average of 21, at an economy of 7.4. Shakib also took 10 wickets at Dhaka in Bangladesh's only test win over Australia. The experienced campaigner knows with many of his experienced batsmen out, he needs to star with the ball. Against an Australian batting order with plenty of right handers, Shakib is set to wreak havoc in game two.

Australia Prop

Stand-in skipper Matthew Wade will be crucial to Australia’s success in this series. Wade will be Australia’s best chance to get a hold of Shakib Al Hasan and Nasum Ahmed given he’s one of the only left hand batters in the side. Wade started to build a bit of form at the end of the ODI series against the West Indies with scores of 36 and 51 not out. Outside of Aaron Finch, Wade has scored more runs than any other Australian in T20I cricket in the last twelve months. With many of Australia’s experienced campaigners not involved in this series, there’s a lot of responsibility on Wade’s shoulders, and he won’t let his side down.
