Bangladesh vs Australia, 1st T20I – Match Details, Live Streaming, Pitch Report, Weather Forecast, Probable Playing XIs, Head-to-Head, Dream 11 Prediction

Bangladesh vs Australia: Bangladesh will be taking on Australia in the first T20I of the three-match series at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Sunday, March 31. Bangladesh will be looking to bounce back from their recent ODI defeat. Whereas, Australia continued their unparalleled dominance in ODI cricket as they whitewashed the hosts, 3-0.

Even though Bangladesh lost all three matches in the ODI series, they must stay positive for this game. They should recapture the form they showed when they beat South Africa in December. Fargana Hoque won’t be playing, with Dilara Akter taking over as the keeper-batter. Bangladesh’s batting woes have been evident, failing to put up competitive scores in the one-days. However, they aim to turn the tide with a better performance.

On the other hand, Australia will be entering the T20 series with high spirits after dominating the ODI. Australia are currently placed at the first position on ICC Women’s T20I Team Rankings and are in great form in the shortest format. Their batters never treat the opposition bowlers with much respect and play with an attacking approach from the very first ball. The visitors would be looking to keep the momentum.

Bangladesh vs Australia, 1st T20I – Key Players


  1. Nigar Sultana – She has been the backbone of Bangladesh’s batting order for a long time. If Sultana gets going in the series, the hosts will have great chances to compete well against a strong Australian side. Her contribution has always proven very crucial for Bangladesh. Nigar Sultana is the all-time leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in T20Is.
  2. Nahida Akter – She bowled exceptionally well in the recently concluded ODI series against Australia. Akter is expected to be the best bowler for Bangladesh in the first T20I. Nahida can give some vital breakthroughs to her side and can play an important role for the home team in stopping the visitors at low scores.


  1. Ellyse Perry – Her scintillating form makes her a top contender for the best batter position in the upcoming game. Perry dominated the recently concluded WPL 2024 in India as the Orange Cap holder, tallying 347 runs across nine innings, embellished with two half-centuries. Eager to sustain her momentum, she aims to replicate her stellar performance in the first T20I clash.
  2. Megan Schutt – She could emerge as a strong contender for the title of the best bowler. Renowned for her adept swing bowling, the right-arm pace bowler is poised to exhibit her skilful mastery once again. With her ability to generate significant movement upfront, Schutt is eager to make her mark.
