Preview 

Bangladesh will play for pride in their last encounter against Australia in Dubai on Thursday (November 4). The team has been extremely disappointing and have lost all their Super 12 games so far. They will be keen to finish on a high. While the recent losses would have dented their confidence, the victory over Australia at home before the 20-20 World Cup will restore some. However, the wins came against a depleted Australian side sans David Warner, Steve Smith, and Pat Cummins. 

Bangladesh’s dismal performance in the 20-20 World Cup has surprised the onlookers of the game because the team is used to playing in these conditions. In fact, they were deemed as one of the teams to watch out for in the mega event. 

Bangladesh have been let down by their batters, who will need to come good if they want to have any hopes of beating Australia. The loss of Shakib Al Hasan is another major blow.

On the other hand, Australia needs a big win to remain in contention for the semifinals. The team was handed a crushing defeat against England and given Bangladesh’s spin attack and Australia’s woes against the same, it won’t be easy for them for sure.

Pitch Conditions

The match is going to take place at Dubai International Stadium. Teams chasing have thrived on this ground. The average score here in the tournament is 140.

Weather Conditions

It will be an afternoon match and needless to say that there will be no respite whatsoever from the hot and sunny climate in UAE. The expected temperature on Thursday (November 4) is 33 degrees.
