Bangladesh vs Australia – 1st T20I Betting Tips

Australia will look to bounce back from recent thrashing as they face Bangladesh in the opening game of the T20I series at Shere-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Bangladesh will be field a relatively inexperienced team with key players unavailable for this T20I series. Captain Mahmudullah will be hoping that the side can put on a strong show in this opening encounter.

On the other hand, the visitors recently were completely outplayed by West Indies in the five-match T20I series played in the Caribbean and will hope this series will bring a much sight of relief. Australian Captain Alex Carey will be hoping that the side can turn their fortunes around in this T20I series.

In the previous four T20I matches played between the two teams, Australia have come out on top on all four occasions.

Bangladesh Form and Team News

The home side will assess the pitch conditions and select their best combination for this opening contest.

In the batting department, the onus will be on in-form openers Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, captain Mahmudullah, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and Shamim Hossain to deliver the bulk of the runs.

The team will be expected to go with three pacers-Mohammad Saifuddin, Shoriful Islam, and Taskin Ahmed for this opening game of the T20I series. Shakib Al Hasan and Nasum Ahmed are prominent spinners included in the XI for this game.

Besides Marsh, wicket-keeper Alex Carey, Moises Henriques, and Matthew Wade will be expected to deliver notable scores against Bangladesh.

Our Tipster’s Angle

In the absence of premier players like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Liton Das, the home side will be looking to try their bench strength for this T20I series.

Soumya Sarkar showed excellent form for Bangladesh in the previous series against Zimbabwe. The team management will be hoping that Sarkar can continue his good form with the bat.

On the other hand, Australia will have to adjust to the conditions in a bid to overcome Bangladesh in this fixture.

Therefore, the prediction is for Australia to beat Bangladesh in the opening game of the T20I series.

Tip 1- Mitchell Marsh to carry Australia’s batting hopes

All-rounder Mitchell Marsh showcased excellent form with the bat in the recently concluded five-match T20I series against Australia. In five matches played, Marsh showed consistency with the bat and smashed three half-centuries against West Indies.

Given his outstanding performances in the Caribbean, we can expect all-rounder Mitchell Marsh to score 20 runs or more in this series [email protected].

Tip 2- Soumya Sarkar to continue his excellent form at the top 

In the absence of bigwigs like Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar has certainly grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Left-hander showed decent form in the previous T20I series played against Zimbabwe. 

With two half-centuries in his previous four T20I outings, we expect Opener Soumya Sarkar to score 25 runs or more in this [email protected]


Expect Australia to overcome Bangladesh in this contest and take a 1-0 lead in the five-match T20I series.
