Rubel and Sabbir back in the mix

Bangladesh made two important changes to their XI coming into this match against Australia.

Mohammad Saifuddin who has been picking up wickets but has been expensive with the ball. This meant Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza backed the more experienced pacer, Rubel Hossain. Sabbir Rahman will also come into the team in place of Mosaddek Hossain. Other than this, no other changes have been made in the side.

Marcus Stoinis, who missed a few matches due to injury has recovered and called back to the side. He will replace Shaun Marsh. Adam Zampa replaces Kane Richardson, as Australia seek some help for the spinner from the wicket. Other than this, Nathan Coulter-Nile is back in the side in the place of Jason Behrendorff. Rest of the side is the same as their previous match against Sri Lanka.

As Australia is batting first on this track, a huge total is on the cards.

The bowling of Bangladesh is slightly problematic, and Australia could take advantage of it. David Warner and skipper Aaron Finch will open the innings for the Aussies. The new ball will be for Bangladesh as they need early wickets else batting will become much easier. The weather is also pitch perfect with bright sunshine and no expected forecast of rain.
