Australia won the toss and opted to bat first against Bangladesh at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday.
Bangladesh will be eyeing another big scalp in the tournament. The ‘Bangla Tigers’ have already beaten South Africa and West Indies in the tournament and are placed at the number fifth spot on the points table. A win for Mashrafe Mortaza’s men against the defending champions will throw the competition wide open at the top half of the table.
Australia have won four out of their five matches in the tournament so far and will look for another win to further strengthen their position at the top half of the table. Australia are unlikely to tinker around with their winning combination but could go for minor tweaking in the lower-order.
