- Mitchell Marsh was in sizzling form in West Indies and was the highest run-getter for Australia. We are backing him as the top score for Australia in the first T20I.
- Shakib Al Hasan – With pitches assisting the spinners, Shakib can be deadly with his spin. He is likely to be the highest wicket-taker for Bangladesh.
- We are backing Mahmudullah to top score for Bangladesh as he enjoys extra pace on the bat and will fancy his chances against Australian attack.

BAN vs AUS Match Toss Prediction
Chasing won’t be easy thus both skippers might want to bat. However, in case of rain around, skippers might chase as well as shorter game works to the advantage of team batting second.
