So, as the Champions Trophy 2017 continues, we now have Bangladesh taking on Australia at The Oval on 5th of June. Bangladesh couldn’t pull off a win against England despite scoring 305 while batting first and now they will be hoping for something different as they approach the new game. Australia, on the other hand, looked confident in their warm-up fixtures and will now be looking to open their account in Champions Trophy on a high as they could only get 1 point in their rain-affected opening game against New Zealand.
As usual, Australia are the favorites to win this one considering the stature of the two sides but how the Bangladeshis approach this game will prove to be crucial at the end of the day. We may have an interesting game of cricket on Monday.
Bangladesh did a great job to post 305 against a team like England in their opening game of the tournament but their bowling didn’t have the zip and penetration to get through the defenses of English batsmen. Two players who played ecstatically well were Tamim Iqbal and Musfiqur Rahim and they actually set up the stage for the Bangladeshis to reach such a huge target scoring 128 and 79 respectively. Let’s see how the duo comes up against Australia. But if Bangladesh have to challenge a side like Australia then other players will really have to chip in. Especially, Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes who belong in top 4 will have to do something special. But then, it all comes down to Bangladesh’s bowling. Only Mashrafe Mortaza and Sabbir Rahman could pick up a wicket a piece in the last game and no other bowler could really have any success whatsoever. A lot of hard work will have to be done this time in a must-win fixture for Bangladesh.
Australia will like have a head start to the tournament by defeating a comparatively weaker opponent in Bangladesh. They will be relying on Aaron Finch who looked in great touch in both the warm-up fixtures. However, he couldn’t really pay off in the game against New Zealand before the rain came down. Nevertheless, he’ll be expected to cash his form here against Bangladesh. Besides, Australia will be expecting something special from Warner, Smith and Maxwell in the batting department. But as far as their bowling is concerned, they really have some in-form players up their ranks with the likes of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and John Hastings. Hazlewood who picked up 6 for 52 against New Zealand will be the main worry for Bangladesh as well. Let’s see how they bowl on the day.
