Bangladesh vs Australia, 5th T20I match

Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka

Batting on the tour has been extremely difficult, with only two batsmen scoring more than 100 runs in four matches so far. One of them is Mitchell Marsh, who has been a revelation ever since he was promoted to No. 3 in the batting order. Another good performance with the bat will make it difficult for the Australian selectors to overlook his name for a spot in the T20 World Cup squad.

Captain Matthew Wade has already indicated that Australia may go with three spinners in the final game, which will likely see Adam Zampa return to the playing XI.

Bangladesh is also likely to make changes to its XI, which has remained unchanged throughout the series. With the series coming to an end, the Tigers will be looking to test their bench strength ahead of the mega-event later this year.

Remember last time

Australia won their first match of the series by three wickets in the fourth T20I.

On a slow and dull Sher-e-Bangla pitch, Bangladesh managed to get only 104/9 in their 20 overs, thanks to some encouragement from Afif Hossain and Mahedi Hasan in the second half of the innings. With Zampa rested, Mitchell Swepson made an immediate impact playing his first game of the series, returning figures of 3/12 in four overs.

As has been the case throughout the series, the Australian batsmen struggled against the Bangladesh spinners and the shrewd Mustafizur Rahman. Moving up the order, Daniel Christian's 39 off 15 balls proved to be a game-changer for the visitors; 30 of those runs came in an over where he hit Shakib Al Hasan for five sixes.

After his wicket, Australia went from 49/3 to 65/6 before Ashton Agar's solid run-a-ball of 27 took them home with one over remaining.

What did they say?

Matthew Wade (Australia Captain): It's not like we're batting so poorly, even they are struggling. But we will get another chance to score individually and as a team in the next game. The bowlers have dominated this series. You want to get those too early 30s and early 40s. We can play with three spinners in the next match.

Mahmudullah (Captain of Bangladesh): As a batting unit, we need to be alert and sensible. Tonight's wicket was the toughest one to bat on. We need to look ahead and maximize our batting line-up. Shakib's over was crucial. Dan Christian changed the landscape. This can happen in a T20 match. Shakib however is a champion bowler.
