With absence of Taskin and Sunny, there is a clear imbalance in the Bangladesh side, who are now  more dependent on their batsmen. The recent forms of Tamim Iqbal, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah and Shakib-Al-Hasan have been encouraging.

On paper, Australia are the more superior side, but Bangladesh, like they have done in the past might just surprise the mighty Aussies. Bangladesh’s resurgence in the recent times has been commendable. They reached the Asia Cup T20 final recently, where they beat teams like Pakistan and Sri Lanka, but lost in the final to India.
