Australia and Bangladesh will compete in a Super-12 stage match of the 2021 T20 World Cup on Thursday, November 4. The match will take place at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the afternoon.
Australia are placed at No.3 in Group 1, having won two games out of three. On the other hand, Bangladesh have lost all four matches so far and are out from the semi-finals’ race.
The Aussies will look to bounce back after facing an embarrassing loss against England. That defeat has thrown their campaign into jeopardy, so in the upcoming game, they need to win by a heavy margin to outclass second-placed South Africa in the points table.

The pitch in Dubai has been batter-friendly but also assisted the bowlers after powerplay overs. Chasing has been the preferred choice so far, and hence, the captain winning the toss is expected to bowl first.
