- Bangladesh vs Australia T20 Series
- The first T20 will be played on August 3
- Australia has become the new captain of the team
Australia’s tour of Bangladesh is going to start from Tuesday. Both the teams will meet in a series of 5 T20 matches. Australia Cricket Board has announced the captain before the series. Recently, Alex Carey, who led the Kangaroo team in the ODI series against West Indies, has been replaced. In his place, veteran wicket-keeper batsman Matthew Wade has been given the command of Australia in the Bangladesh series. Let us tell you that Australia had to make this change due to the injury of regular captain Aaron Finch. Finch had returned home from the tour of West Indies due to an injury to his right knee.
Matthew Wade has captained domestically
Many strong players will not be seen in the series against Bangladesh. The absence of opener David Warner, pacer Pat Cummins and all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has led to the appointment of 33-year-old Matthew Wade as the team’s captain. Wade has captained the Victoria, Tasmania and Hobart Hurricanes domestically. Recently, Australia had a mixed performance on the West Indies tour. The team suffered a 4-1 defeat at the hands of West Indies in the T20I series. On the other hand, Australia showed stamina in the three-match series and thrashed West Indies 2-1.
Wade made his international debut in 2012
Wade made his international debut in the year 2012. He has played 97 ODIs, 36 Tests and 43 T20 Internationals so far, in which he scored 1867, 1613 and 613 runs respectively. Wade has taken over 200 catches behind the wicket and made 22 stumpings. It is worth noting that the first T20 between Bangladesh and Australia will be held on August 3 and the second match on August 4. Both the teams will clash in the third T20 on August 6 while the fourth match will be played on August 7. At the same time, the fifth and last T20 will be held on August 9.
