Australia take on Bangladesh today at the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Australia’s first game against New Zealand was washed out and Bangladesh on the other hand lost to hosts England comprehensively. For Bangladesh, a win would mean they stay alive in the tournament and for Australia a win would mean they take a step in the right direction for the knockouts. For Bangladesh, Tamim Iqbal who scored 128 is in form and apart from that they need others like Sarkar, Shakib, Mahmudullah to stand up with the bat and Mustafizur Rahman and Taskin need to fire if Bangladesh want to pose a challenge for Australia. The only time the two teams met at the ICC Champions Trophy stage, they were walloped by 9 wickets.

It will be a togh task for Bangladesh bowlers to curb David Warner and Steven Smith who are in rollicking form and to go with that Mitchell Starc will be bowling fast, really fast. The only time Bangladesh got the better of Australia was in Cardiff, thanks to a breathtaking knock by Mohammad Ashraful. Bangladesh would dearly be hoping for something similar from Mohammad Ashraful.
