Bangladesh vs Australia T20I series has finished, BAN won the series 4-1. It is a remarkable achievement for Bangladesh cricket team as this is the first time ever in history that Bangladesh managed to defeat Australia in a T20 series. It wasn’t just a win but a very convincing win by all parameters. Winning against a seasoned T20I side by a 4-1 margin in a huge thing and this victory has arrived just at the right time for Bangladesh since ICC T20I World Cup is just a few months away.
Bangladesh cricket might have struggled against the quality sides in longer formats of the game but in shorter format they have performed consistently. On the other hand Australian cricket team hasn’t been able to win anything in T20 format for almost a year now.
Australian T20 team has lost all bilateral series since September 2020.
1- Australia lost to England (2-1) in September 2020.
2- Australia lost to India (2-1) in December 2020.
3- Australia lost to New Zealand (3-2) in March 2021.
4- Australia lost to West Indies (4-1) in July 2021.
5- Australia lost to Bangladesh (4-1) in August.
These stats show that there is a constant decline in Australia’s T20 performance and with T20 World Cup around the corner its a very concerning thing for Cricket Australia. One might argue that Australia didn’t fielded their best playing XI against the Bangladesh cricket team in the recent series, But Bangladesh could only beat what is in front of them so we cannot take any credit away from Bangladesh cricket team which played so brilliant cricket at home, using the conditions to their benefit and win convincingly.
