Australia v Bangladesh

The Oval, London

Don’t discount Bangladesh in this one at The Oval

They have the batsmen in Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes to run amok if the mood takes them – just ask England last winter – their strokeplay is unorthodox, destructive and brilliant to watch and if the mood is with them will make any bowling attack toil.

And in Hasan Miraz they have an opening bowler of skill and cunning who will relish the occasion.

But the Australians are finding their mojo again and are beginning to pluck players who have starred domestically into the national side. Billy Stanlake is a real find with the ball, Josh Hazlewood and James Faulkner are experienced, well-versed in the art of one day cricket and will keep things right for the Aussies who just know how to win.

Both sides will relish the conditions and playing surface at The Oval for this one – a good pitch, fast outfield and quick scoring promise to deliver a fascinating encounter.

Australia may be the overwhelming favourites but the Tigers of Bangladesh will trade fiercely in this encounter so if you want to be part of something special, see two world class teams in action, look no further than our ticket-inclusive options for this great game.
