The 26th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between Australia and Bangladesh at Trent Bridge today. Considering the form of both the teams, don’t be surprised if you witness a high-scoring cliffhanger.
With four victories in five matches, Australia are currently at No. 3 in the points table. On the other hand, with two victories in five matches, Bangladesh are not far behind at No. 5. A win for Bangladesh might not change their position in the points table but for mean a lot for the tournament getting closer during its business end.
AUS vs BAN Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keepers for AUS vs BAN Dream 11
My only wicket-keeper batsman for this match is Bangladesh’s Liton Das. Playing his first match, Das scored a match-winning 94* (69) with the help of eight fours and four sixes against West Indies to win the match for his Bangladesh. Buying him at 8 credits is a STEAL. Get him in!
Batsmen for AUS vs BAN Dream 11
Citing Trent Bridge’s high-scoring nature in mind, I have picked as many as five batsmen in this squad. Having scored 343 runs at an average of 68.60 and a strike rate of 110.64, Australia captain Aaron Finch is currently the third-highest run-scorer in the tournament.
Much like Finch, Steve Smith is another automatic selection in my fantasy team for this match. Having scored three half-centuries so far, one believes Smith might just play register daddy hundred today. An adept player of spin bowling, Smith is likely to succeed against the likes of Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan Miraz.
While I would have loved to pick David Warner as well, a budget constraint has made me proceed with Usman Khawaja. The southpaw might not have got going in this World Cup but him scoring 867 runs at an average of 48.16 and a strike rate of 83.84 including two centuries and six half-centuries speaks highly of him and his worth.
My other two batsmen for this match are Bangladesh opening batsmen – Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar. The pair has provided Bangladesh with brisk starts. Given Australian fast bowlers’ pace, both Iqbal and Sarkar would be looking to take the attack on the opposition in Nottingham.

384 runs at an average of 128 and a strike rate of 103.78 including two centuries and half-centuries each. Five wickets at an average of 44.40 and an economy rate of 5.84. Having watched his formidable century in the last match, there is not an iota of doubt in my mind with respect to including Shakib in my team.
My second all-rounder for this match is Australia’s Glenn Maxwell. If Australia continue to play four specialist fast bowlers, expect Maxwell to bowl significant amount of overs. The same in addition to his power-hitting skills with the bat make him a vital cog in the wheel for my team.
Bowlers for AUS vs BAN Dream 11
The Australian new ball pair of Mitchell Starc (13 wickets at an average of 19.15, economy rate of 5.41 and a strike rate of 21.2) and Pat Cummins (11 wickets at an average of 11.88, economy rate of 4.48 and a strike rate of 25.1) being among the Top Five wicket-takers in the tournament makes me pick them instantly.
Another reason behind picking Starc is him picking a five-wicket haul against West Indies at the same venue earlier in the tournament.
My last bowler for this match is Bangladesh’s Mohammad Saifuddin. Having dismissed nine batsmen at an average of 27.55 and a striker rate of 22.6, Saifuddin is Bangladesh’s highest wicket-taker in the tournament. With Saifuddin expected to bowl in the death over, you can count on him for providing breakthroughs in the third powerplay.
