OVAL – Restless Australia will face winless Bangladesh in the fifth game of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 today (Monday), June 5, at the Kennington, Oval. Match scheduled to begin at 13:30 local time (12:30 GMT| 6:30 PKT).
The quest for a place in the semi-finals begins now for Australia and Bangladesh whose respective first matches in the tournament didn’t go to plan.
Bangladesh would now have to lift themselves by batting at a faster rate, bowling much better and select a more balanced XI than they did in the last game.
Tamim Iqbal stood out with his century, putting a big partnership with Mushfiqur Rahim, but Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes and the rest flattered to deceive. But with time running out, this is going to be their big opportunity.
They need to register a win quickly, although Australia at least got a point out of their New Zealand match while Bangladesh lost to England.
Australia will also be hoping to get tips about Mustafizur Rahman from David Warner, his Sunrisers Hyderabad captain for the last two seasons. But if The Oval pitch doesn’t have a bit of roughness, it won’t be in Mustafizur’s advantage. The same can be said for Shakib Al Hasan and the other Bangladesh spinners.
