The T20 series between Australia vs. Bangladesh has been a low scoring affair but a highly entertaining one. Bangladesh ended up winning the first three T20 games even though they were the underdogs and registered a historic T20 series win against Australia.
The Aussies were embarrassed and were under threat of succumbing 5-0 as Bangladesh had the momentum behind them. Australia fought back in the fourth T20 to salvage some pride and go 3-1 up in the series. The fifth and final T20 will take place on August 09 and both teams will fight hard as Bangladesh will want to exert their dominance and finish with a 4-1 record while the Aussies will feel a lot better if the series finishes with a 3-2 scoreline.

Australia vs. Bangladesh – Predictions – Fifth T20
All of the games have been a low scoring affair and we expect the 5th T20 to be no different. Australia did well in the fourth T20 after they made some changes to their squad which our experts suggested. We predicted that Australia will do well if captain Matthew Wade goes up the order to open as he has in the past and gets Alex Carey down the order.
Wade did just that in the fourth T20 and though both of them did not make runs, it ended up working well for Australia. The introduction of T20 specialist Andrew Tye also worked as Tye picked up three crucial wickets. Australia will likely go in with the same playing XI as they will not want to tinker with a winning squad.
Australia know they need a little more from their batsmen if they are going to win again. Matthew Wade, Moises Henriques and Alex Carey need to score more runs with the bat if Australia is going to have the upper hand. If the batting does not get going, it is going to be another close match.
Bangladesh struggled in the fourth T20 as their batsmen failed yet again. One of the reasons their batting has struggled is because they are getting nothing from their captain Mahmudullah. Even though Bangladesh has won the T20 series, Mahmudullah the batsman will be under a lot of pressure.
This is a great opportunity for him to once again bat at 4 and take control of the game. Bangladesh will also be looking to their all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to deliver with both the bat and fall. Either Mahmudullah or Shakib Al Hasan will have to put their heads down and play a big innings for Bangladesh to get a good total on the board.
Australia vs. Bangladesh – Verdict – Fifth T20
Even though Australia are favorites to win the fifth T20, we are going to back Bangladesh to pull off another win and finish the series with a 4-1 record.
