It has been 11 years since they last squared off in a Test. Their last series is mostly remembered for Jason Gillespie’s double hundred. Out of the 100 Tests that Bangladesh have played, only 4 have come against Australia and those games came at a time when Bangladesh were still finding their feet in international cricket and Australia were world beaters. Things have changed as Bangladesh take on Australia in the first Test of the series at Mirpur on Sunday.
The live cricket streaming of the match will be available on Hotstar while the live telecast of the match will be available on Star Sports Select 1 HD and Star Sports 1 HD.
Bangladesh cannot be considered minnows anymore and with their good bowling attack they have proved to be a more than competitive side in the recent past, especially in the subcontinent. They beat England last year to level a series at home, which they were whiskers away from winning it. They also beat Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka to mark their memorable 100th Test. At the other hand, Australia haven’t won a series in subcontinent in last 6 years, losing 2 series in India (2013 and 2017), 1 against Pakistan (2014) and were whitewashed in Sri Lanka 0-3 in 2016.
You can sit back, relax from the interiors of your home on this Sunday to witness Bangladesh trying to prove a point against the dominant Australian side. In case, you have other plans there is always live streaming. Not to forget, CricketCountry will be covering the game as well and you can tune into this space for more.
