Cricket World Cup 2023: AUS vs BAN Fantasy Preview and MPL Top Picks

Match: Australia vs Bangladesh, Cricket World Cup 2023

Date: November 11, Saturday, 10.30 AM IST

Venue: Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune

Australia is gearing up for a clash against Bangladesh in the 43rd match of the ODI World Cup 2023 on Saturday, November 11, at the Maharashtra International Cricket Stadium in Pune. Having secured a spot in the semi-finals with six wins out of eight matches, Australia looks to maintain their winning streak. Meanwhile, Bangladesh, positioned third from the bottom on the points table with only two victories in eight games, aims to conclude their World Cup journey positively despite being out of semi-final contention.

Australia’s recent match against Afghanistan highlighted their batting prowess. While facing a target of 292, Australia encountered early setbacks, losing seven wickets for just 91 runs. However, Glenn Maxwell’s historic innings of 201 runs off 128 deliveries played a crucial role in their successful chase, securing victory in 46.5 overs.

In a recent encounter with Sri Lanka, Bangladesh secured a three-wicket win. Charith Asalanka’s century propelled Sri Lanka to a first innings total of 279, a target Bangladesh chased down in 41.1 overs. Though this victory doesn’t propel Bangladesh into the knockouts, it provides them with momentum to conclude their World Cup campaign on a positive note.
