Team Analysis:


Australia Cricket Team, ICC Cricket World Cup

Australia’s batting is in good hands right now, but still, the explosiveness which the team has not shown by them. The previous match had some excellent performances by the likes of Aaron Finch, Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell. Each of them had a strike rate above 100. Usman Khwaja was expected to give another fantastic inning but deferred against Pakistan bowling. David Warner also had a slow start and eventually got out.

Mitchell Starc had the best bowling performance in the team. But the noticeable one was of Glenn Maxwell who gave a breakthrough by conceiving the wicket of Perera in the previous match. Statistically, the absence of Coulter-Nile as Behrendroff was not able to provide the impact. Kane Richardson also had some high numbers. Only concerning thing for the bowing is the partnership breaking ability was lacking, which they inevitably will cover.

Shakib Al Hasan, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal all these were enough to shatter the hopes of Indies. The batting carried by Shakib Al Hasan and the supporting cast boosted by the addition of Liton Das. The player was already in good form was warming the bench. This line-up shouldn’t change until and unless it doesn’t become necessary. Mahmadullah and Hossein were left, and they can also help the team to get more runs on the board.

Mustafizur Rehman is still struggling and cannot find his form. The bowling looks good, and anything else is not needed. Mosaddek Hussein, Mashrafe Mortaza all have been performing excellently. Shakib Al Hasan can be a worry as the current wear and tear of his body cannot be neglected. The no.3 all-rounder is giving his almost 100% as he is achieving accolades in a quick. Bangladesh should be ready to make the squad prepared to face any calamities if Shakib doesn’t perform.
