Mitchell Marsh is fit to bowl Australia will face Bangladesh tomorrow

New Delhi. The Australian team led by Mitchell Marsh will start its campaign against Bangladesh in the Super 8 of the T20 World Cup. This match will be played in North Sound, Antigua. The Kangaroo team may look strong on paper in this match, but Australia will not make the mistake of taking the opposition team lightly in this important match to be played on Friday. The Bangladesh team is known for making upsets. To win this match, the Kangaroos will have to show an all-round game. Only then will things work out.

Before entering this match, the Australian players should keep in mind that taking Bangladesh lightly can cost the team heavily. Bangladesh defeated Australia 4-1 in the T20 series on its soil in 2021. The conditions here are also very similar to the subcontinent and in such a situation any kind of laxity can cost Australia heavily. In such conditions, the role of leg-spinners Adam Jampa and Glenn Maxwell and part-time spinner Travis Head will be important for Australia. The pitches here are slow and Australia can also keep left-arm spinner Ashton Agar in the playing XI. He can also prove to be a useful batsman in the lower order.

Australia's strong point is its fast bowling attack
Whatever the situation, Australia's strong side is its fast bowling attack which includes Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood. These three fast bowlers have troubled the batsmen a lot so far. Cummins and Hazlewood, who did not play in the last match against Scotland, are ready to return in this match. The good news for Australia is that captain Mitchell Marsh has declared himself fit to bowl in the Super Eight stage.

'I am fully fit to bowl'
Mitchell Marsh said on the eve of the match, “I will be available to bowl but with the kind of bowling attack we have, I don't think I will need to bowl.” Not only Australia's bowling but their batting is also very strong. Batsmen like Head, David Warner, Marsh, Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Tim David have the ability to destroy any kind of bowling attack.

Bangladesh's biggest concern is the poor performance of its batsmen
Bangladesh also has T20 specialist bowlers like Mustafizur Rahman, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah and Taskin Ahmed who can trouble the Australian batsmen. However, Bangladesh's biggest concern is the poor performance of its batsmen. Its batsmen are no less than any other team in terms of experience. But so far in this tournament, they have not been able to perform as expected. Therefore, if Bangladesh has to give a tough challenge to Australia, then its batsmen will have to perform well.
