Australia v Bangladesh World Cup team news

Australia have the option to rest Mitchell Starc or Josh Hazlewood. Sean Abbott stands by. Glenn Maxwell, he of the greatest ODI innings of all time, is an obvious doubt with various ailments. Cameron Green could come in. Steve Smith may replace Marnus Labuschagne.

Possible XI: Warner, Head, M Marsh, Smith, Inglis, Green, Stoinis, Cummins, Abbot, Zampa, Hazlewood

Bangladesh are without skipper Shakib-al-Hasan due to a finger fracture. There has been some fallout following the Angelo Mathews timed out dismissal. Bowling coach Allan Donald has criticised the decision and will leave his role.

Possible XI: Tanzid, Das, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shanto, Hridoy, Mushfiqur, Mahmudullah, Mahedi, Taskin, Shoriful, Saqib

Australia v Bangladesh World Cup pitch report

Pune is a flat one for batters. Even England managed 339 on it against the Netherlands. We would expect Australia to threaten something similar batting first. It may be possible to get 1.9110/11 about 320 or more.

Back over 320 Australia 1st inns runs @ 1.9110/11

Australia v Bangladesh World Cup match report

Australia are 1.152/13 with Bangladesh 7.4013/2. This has been a good World Cup for the outsiders but it looks like the shocks are all done now.

The Aussies should comfortably beat a dreadful Bangladesh team even if they were not at full tilt. Margin of victory options include Australia by ten wickets/90+ runs at 23/103.30.

Australia v Bangladesh World Cup player bets

David Warner is due a score and we're grateful to Sportsbook for boosting him to 13/53.60 to do so. There's little appeal on the Bangladesh tops markets so a chunkier option is to pair Warner with Adam Zampa for a batter-bowler double at 10/111.00. Warner and Zampa are returning at 30% and 58% respectively.

Liton Das is a short in-play. Das can often get starts but against the best attacks he rarely goes on. He averages 21 against the Big Six. He should be a sell at 40.5.
