Bangladesh vs Australia 1st T20 2021: Preview, Dream Prediction, Playing 11, Pitch Report, Top Fantasy Picks

Bangladesh will take on Australia for the first time in a bilateral T20 International series with 5 matches to be played. The Bangla Tigers are formidable on home turf and recently came back from a tour of Zimbabwe, where they won the series 2-1.

Australia are struggling with injuries and now Matthew Wade is their captain in the absence of Aaron Finch. The Aussies struggled on the West Indies tour where they lost the T20 International series 1-4 and then saved some blushes by winning the ODI series 2-1. It’s not going to be easy in the subcontinent conditions for the Aussies.
