Australia have been in an undefeated streak across all formats of cricket and have managed to become a powerhouse in this generation of cricket. Australia and Bangladesh have faced each other five times in the past and the Aussies have taken the win every single time. Bangladesh have been in good form this season, emerging second in their group stage and making cricket enthusiasts wonder if the sixth face off would produce a different result?

Ahead of Friday’s Australia vs Bangladesh Super 8 contest in Antigua, here are a few things you need to know.

Pitch Report : The pitch has favored fast bowlers in the previous matches, though batters also have a advantage because of the good bounce it presents. However, Antigua has the reputation of being a low scoring ground and no team has reached a 200 total in the past T20I seasons.

Weather Forecast : The chance of rain is expected to be 59 per cent on the day of the match. Considering the match will be played at night time, the chances of rain seems unlikely.
