Australia now has lost four T20I series in a row.
The magical Bangla Tigers won the 3rd T20I and created history by winning their first-ever bilateral T20I series against Australia. They bowled exceptionally well in the 3rd T20I and defended 128 runs quite successfully, and sealed the game in the end by 10 runs. Mustafizur Rahman gave away only one run in the penultimate over of the matc, which turned out to be a match-winning over.
Australia were completely outplayed by the Bangladeshi bowlers in the 3rd T20I and in this series as well. Chasing 128, which seems to be modest in the T20 format, their batting unit faltered miserably, and as a result, they lost the match by 10 runs and even lost the series with two matches still to be played. This is their 4th straight T20I series loss in a row.
