T20 World Cup: Australia v Bangladesh preview

Australia continue their 2024 ICC T20 World Cup campaign on Thursday as they face Bangladesh in Antigua for their first match of the Super Eight.

At -714.29 with Bovada, the Aussies are clear favourites for this clash, whereas Bangladesh are paying long odds of +475 to spring an upset.

Australia completed a faultless group stage last weekend as they beat Scotland by five wickets. Chasing Scotland’s highest-ever World Cup score of 180, it was Travis Head (68) and Marcus Stoinis (59) who did most of the damage as they got there with two balls to spare.

Finishing top of their group, expectations are high for the Aussies, who are second favourites for the tournament at +300 with top cricket bookmakers.

After Australia rotated their bowling attack against Scotland, expect star quicks Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood to return in place of Nathan Ellis and Ashton Agar

Bangladesh also had a successful finish to their group stage as they beat Nepal by 21 runs. On a slow batting deck, no Bangladeshi batsman passed 20 as they set an underwhelming 106. However, their bowlers were far too strong, limiting Nepal to just 85 as Tanzim Hasan Sakib (4/7) and Mustafizur Rahman (3/7) led the way.

With three wins and a narrow loss to South Africa, Bangladesh have been strong on the low-scoring American wickets. However, with the second-lowest odds to lift the trophy at +6600, top sports bookmakers aren’t confident in their chances.

Australia v Bangladesh betting strategy

As the clear favourites for this clash, Australia will be looking to bank some net run rate before they face tougher opposition. Bangladesh’s batting is a clear concern, especially when facing a star-studded Aussie bowling attack. Despite showing little value, back Australia at -714.29 odds.

Man of the match in two out of four group matches, Aussie leg-spinner Adam Zampa has had an excellent start to the tournament. With nine wickets, he sits second in the overall standings, with an economy rate of just 5.87. As Bangladesh look to increase the run rate through the middle overs, back Zampa to draw out mistakes and take three or more wickets at +240 with top online bookmakers.

Aussie opener Travis Head has also had a great T20 World Cup so far, scoring 148 runs at a strike rate of 157.44. The South Australian makes the most of the pace on the ball during powerplays, often slashing from the first delivery. Back Head to score 30 or more runs at +100 with T20 cricket betting sites.
