Australia vs. Bangladesh – Betting Odds – Third T20
Even though Australia lost their first two T20 games, they once again go in as the betting favorites. Bet365 has given the Aussies odds of 1.53 while hosts Bangladesh have odds of 2.50. Those odds are not going to dampen the spirit of Bangladesh as they will relish the underdog tag and would love to create an upset by pulling of a series win in the third T20.
Australia have a strong team even though some of their top players are not in the squad. Australia are struggling due to two reasons. The first reason is due to the conditions in the sub-continent which favour Bangladesh. The second reason is because Australia haven’t played well under the leadership of Matthew Wade.
Our experts predicted at the start of the series that Australia should win the series if Alex Carey captained the side but would struggle if Matthew Wade captained. The Aussies decided to let Wade captain and as predicted Australia have lost the first two T20s and are struggling to win the series.
Australia vs. Bangladesh – Predictions – Third T20
Australia have bowled rather well as both the T20 games have been a low scoring affair. The Aussies have failed in the batting department and we think one of the main reasons for that is due to Matthew Wade.
Wade has opened the batting for Australia on a number of occasions. However he has decided to push himself down the order and let Alex Carey open instead. We think it’s a bad move as Wade should be leading from the front with the bat and leading by example. The captain has come in at number 5 in both the games and has scored 13 from 23 balls and 4 from 7 balls.
When the captain struggles, the team generally struggles as well. If Matthew Wade does not change the batting order or once again struggles to get runs, it will be very difficult for Australia to win.
Bangladesh have bowled really well but know they need to do little more with the bat. The two games have been low scoring affairs but have also been closely contested. Bangladesh need a little more from the premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and their captain Mahmudullah.
Mahmudullah came in at 4 in the first T20 and went down to 5 in the second T20. We think that just like the Aussie captain, Mahmudullah needs to bat at 4 and take control of the innings early on.
If Bangladesh end up winning the third T20, they will look to use that momentum and push for a 5-0 series whitewash.
Australia vs. Bangladesh – Verdict – Third T20
We get the feeling that Australia is going to stick to the same strategy in the third T20. This will once again give Bangladesh a better opportunity at winning. We are going to back Bangladesh for a third time to win the match and the series 3-0.
