Bangladesh vs Australia 2017 cricket series has been started on 27th August 2017. The home series for Bangladesh has become a massive occasion for showing their improvements against stronger opposition. Both the teams have recently developed by a good margin in the recent past. So, all eyes are on this series.
Bangladesh has got some talented youngsters in their squad, who are very keen to settle in the National Team. Besides, they have some key experienced players like Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim in their squad. The pipeline of in-form players is quite long now. So, the competition has increased a lot than before.
Australia has got some experienced cricketers in their team also. They will play to their best to do well in the upcoming series against the Tigers.
There have been only 4 test matches between Bangladesh and Australia in the past. All of them were won by Australia. 3 of them were won by an innings and some runs. So, there is little hope for Bangladesh to gain from past records. But, the fact is, the last test was held in 2006, 11 years ago. And Bangladesh has improved dramatically over the past 3 years. So, it will be a new history to be written this time. Now, Australia is at the number 4 position and Bangladesh is at the number 9 position in Test Rankings by ICC. So, it will be a good contest between number 4 and number 9.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh has won the first test match at Mirpur by 20 runs.
