Bangladesh will take on Australia in the third match of their five-match T20I series on Friday, August 6 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. Bangladesh will be looking to gain an unassailable lead over Australia while the visitors will be trying to avoid that.

Australia, on the other hand, is now in a must-win situation for the rest of the series. No other player except Mitchell Marsh and Josh Hazlewood have performed up to the mark in the series till now.
