Having already suffered an embarassing defeat at the hands of hosts Bangladesh in the first of the two-Test series at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka, hosts Australia would desperately look to avoid a defeat in the second and final Test at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong, in order to avoid sinking to their lowest Test ranking in almost 29 years. A defeat in the final Test would not only mean a 0-2 whitewash for the Aussies, but they would get down to as low as sixth spot in the ICC Test Rankings, which would be their lowest rank since 1988.

Speaking further on the situation to cricket.com.au, Australian skipper Steven Smith said, “I don’t know if we’re better than that at the moment, that’s a difficult question. I think we’re still a young team, obviously some new players that have come in only last year in the summer and some guys that are still trying to find their way. We’re a young team and we’re a team that hopefully is going to continue to improve. We’ve still got a long way to go to rise up in the rankings and hopefully as a group we can continue to improve and get better.” BAN vs AUS, 1st Test: Warner’s pristine Baggy Green draws attention
