Pitch Condition:

Sher E Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka

This wicket is expected to be on the slower side. Bowlers(especially change of pace and spinners) will be more effective here.

Batting is way too tough. With a scoring rate of 5.86, last series was already the slowest T20I series of at least three matches that has ever been played on this ground.

Last 6 matches at this ground:

BAN: 131/7, AUS: 108 (Pace: 10 Spin:6)

BAN: 123/5, AUS: 121/7 (Pace: 9 Spin:5)

BAN: 127/9, AUS: 117/4(Pace: 7 Spin:4)

BAN: 104/9, AUS: 105/7(Pace:8 Spin:7)

BAN: 122/8, AUS: 62/10 (Pace:7 Spin:10)

NZ: 60/10, BAN: 62/5 (Pace:5 Spin:8)

Bangladesh Team Preview: 

They have performed superbly in the last series and will be favourites to win this series also. They have won the last T20 in an easy manner.
