Mustafizur Rahman can be a good pick for the match.
Bangladesh exuded great character in the T20I series as they clinched the series and registered their first-ever series win against Australia. The visitors, however, struggled in the series as their batting lineup couldn’t hold the fort for the team.
But in the fourth T20I, Australia did a fine job and restricted the hosts to just 104 runs and secured victory. Heading into this match, Australia will be keen to secure another win and end it on a positive note. It thus would be an intriguing contest.
