The Australia tour of Bangladesh ended with the 5th T20I on Monday at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium. Though it seemed like Australia would be able to make this series 3-2 situation, the hosts bludgeoned them to lead to an inevitable 4-1 win. What makes this victory even more special for Bangladesh is that this is their first T20I win against the Aussies. Shakib Al Hasan, with his brilliant display of skills and tactics throughout Ban vs Aus T20, was declared the Man Of The Match and the Man Of The Series.
There is no denying that the pitch conditions during the Australia tour of Bangladesh was not the best right from the start. Bangladesh had won the toss and decided to bat. The batsmen struggled to put up runs on the board, such that, even a total of 122 by Bangladesh seemed pretty difficult to chase. So much so that Mohammad Naim, with his 23 runs off 23 balls was the only one to have crossed the twentieth mark from the host’s side.
The bowling by Ashton Agar proved threatening to the hosts as he took three crucial wickets of Mahedi Hasan, Naim, and Mahmudullah. However, even his bowling skills could not save the day for the Aussies in this Australia tour of Bangladesh.
Ban vs Aus T20 series is not something that the Aussies would want to fondly remember for a long time. Bangladeshi bowling attack hammered away at the Aussie batting so hard that the visitors were all-out for 62 runs at 13.4 overs.
Mathew Wade and Ben McDermott tried their best to put up a good fight by putting some runs on the board, but they proved to be of no match for Hasan and his boys in the Ban vs Aus T20 series. Read all the sports news here just bookmark this page.
