Bangladesh vs Australia 3rd T20I Betting Tips 06/08/2021

Teams Status

Bangladesh

Bangladesh are within touching distance of a historic T20I series win over Australia, thanks to their back-to-back wins in the first two games.

The nature of their win in the second T20I was not too dissimilar to the opener, except that this time Australia batted first and Bangladesh chased.

The pitch was again slow and favoured Bangladeshi bowlers, who took full advantage and restricted the visitors to just 121-7 – a target whose pursuit had its perils — Bangladesh were down 67-5 — but the job was done eventually.

Mustafizur Rahman was excellent with the ball and the pairing of Afif Hossain and Nurul Hasan were calm in the run chase. And that’s all the heroes Bangladesh needed, thanks to the paltry target set by the Aussies.

Another win and the Tigers will secure their first-ever T20I series win over Australia.

Australia

Already red-faced after what transpired in the opener, Australia heaped more misery upon themselves by losing the second T20I – and that too in a humiliating manner.

Their bowlers again did quite well, making a match out of a total that is almost indefensible in modern cricket, with Josh Hazlewood and Ashton Agar being super economical.

If it wasn’t for Hossain and Hasan’s clutch 56-run stand for the sixth wicket, the Aussie bowling unit could have pulled off an impressive win. But the job done in first half of the match by Aussie batters was woeful at best and it again left little room for their ball hurlers. Apart from Mitchell Marsh (45) and Moses Henriques (30), none did anything of note as the Aussies got humbled again.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Australia to win @ 1.536

It’s now time for us to pick sides again. For a side that is clearly struggling and has lost two on the bounce, Australia are definitely priced quite expensive. But then again it’s Australia. Their winning pedigree should kick in right about now. As challenged as they are for talent, they had Bangladesh on the ropes in the second T20I and another wicket could have changed the result of the match. On the basis of that gut feeling, we back Australia to win @ 1.536 with 22Bet.

Tip: Josh Philippe to score Under 20.5 runs @ 1.832

Josh Philippe is on a horror run and has struggled for run for quite some time now in all formats. In fact, in his last 10 matches for both Australia and Western Australia, his best has been a 39-run knock against the Windies in an ODI. We expect Philippe to continue to not be so useful in the 3rd T20I and contribute under 20.5 runs. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

Australia are a shell-shocked and a shell of their former sell but we expect them to come alive, with their pride and the series both on the line.
