As we are drifting closer towards the business end of the ICC 2021 T20 World Cup, the scenarios that each team need in order to qualify for the semi-finals are becoming clearer and the stakes for winning higher. One team from each of the groups in the Super 12s have already booked a spot in the semi-finals, meaning that the fight for the final two semi-final positions are well and truly up for grabs. Australia are going to take on Bangladesh in Group A, and this match is important for Australia and the three sides that have not yet qualified.

Who will go on to win? Read our T20 World Cup prediction and find out our opinion.

Australia Team Preview

Australia have done pretty well in this World Cup, only losing to England, although that was a complete drubbing. They will consider this match, against Bangladesh, to be a good chance to get another two points and boost their poor Net Run Rate a bit.

As things stand, Australia are in third spot in the Group A table thanks to two wins from three games, but because of their eight wicket defeat to England that came with 50 balls to spare, they have a very bad Net Run Rate of -0.627. However, a win against Bangladesh would definitely put them in the driving seat because they would just need to win their remaining match to progress.

Australia will be wary of Bangladesh, as they played a five-match series recently and lost 4-1. They have improved their team since then, so we are backing them to perform much better in this match. Australia's main concern is who to choose in their XI. While David Warner played a great knock against Sri Lanka, he was out cheaply against England and still does not look at his best. Also, Aaron Finch has not done enough damage as an opener. However, in the middle order, the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, and Mitchell Marsh have played decently well in the games they have played in.

They have a really good bowling attack, but England showed in their last match that they can be got up. However, the Bangladesh team does not have the same fire power as England, so they will struggle a lot more against the likes of Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, and Pat Cummins. Bangladesh have never been good when it comes to extreme pace, and the Aussie quicks have pace in abundance.

Overall, Australia have a great team on Paper, but their top order batsmen are not playing to their full potential. The Aussies will need the likes of Finch and Warner to fire and, if they do, then they will be hard to beat.

Bangladesh Team News

The Bangladeshis have a history of being able to bounce back, and while they want to do so in this tournament, it is not going to have any say as far as their qualification for the semi-finals is concerned. After their loss to South Africa, they are already officially eliminated and only have pride to play for, which they have plenty of.

With Shakib Al Hasan having been ruled out of the competition, Bangladesh have an even more brittle batting lineup, and this was clear when they took on the Proteas and were all out for less than 90. None of their batsmen looked remotely comfortable against the pace bowling that South Africa were serving up, so this does not bode well for this match against the Aussies. The only positive that they can take from their batting effort against South Africa is that Mehidy Hasan showed that he can bat well.

When it came to their bowling, Bangladesh at least managed to put up a fight and they will have been encouraged by that. It must be said that Taskin Ahmed was very good up front, and he will be the key when it comes to dismissing Australia's top order that is out of form. As well as him, the spinners will play a very important role since this game is a day match and there will be no dew factor.

Bangladesh, it must be said, have underperformed at this tournament - they have had conditions that should have suited them well, but they have played poorly. They will want to end the competition on a high, and if they can get all of their clogs working at the same time, they will be a hard team to beat.

Toss Prediction

The captain that wins the toss will more than likely decide to bowl first. To date, the team that has batted second at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium have had the advantage, so the captain that wins the coin toss should opt to bat second. It would be surprising if they did not. To give you an idea as to how advantageous it is to bat second, there have been eight matches played at this stadium in this World Cup, and seven of them have been won by the chasing team.

Pitch Conditions

The pitch at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium has not been that great for batsmen because the bowlers have been on top more often than not. The batsmen have had to work hard for their runs. The average first innings score at this stadium is 135, so the team that bats first will be looking to score somewhere in the region of 150.

Our Match Prediction

Even though this match means little to Bangladesh when it comes to the winning the World Cup, they will be playing for their pride. The Aussies enter this match off the back of a poor performance, so this could be the chance that Bangladesh need to get the ball rolling. However, when it comes to online cricket betting, we think that Australia are the more balanced side and have the better team. We think that you should put your money on Australia to win and keep their semi-final hopes well and truly alive.
