Aus beat Ban 4th T20I: Daniel Christian’s heroics, Ashton Agar’s steady knock hand Australia a win; series stands 3-1: Australia won the fourth T20I against Bangladesh Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka by three wickets. The penultimate match of the 5-match T20I series was indeed a low scoring thriller that saw many moments of highs and lows in the contest. Right from Daniel Christian’s five sixes off Shakib al Hasan’s bowling to Mustafizur Rahman’s wicket maiden over; the match had all sorts of tides in the contest. The contest, however, concluded in Australia’s win who were searching for a victory to salvage their pride after losing the T20I series 3 down to Bangladesh.

Even after Bangladesh managed to post just 104 runs on the board, Australia had a tough task chasing it. After losing both their openers- Ben McDermott (5) and Matthew Wade (2) early, Daniel Christian (39) dusted off the pressure by smashing five sixes in an over. He looked in fine touch while partnering with Mitchel Marsh (11) before he was removed by Mustafizur Rahman who claimed a wicket-maiden over. Thereafter, Ashton Agar (27) lent some crucial runs to inch the visitors closer to the victory.

Aus beat Ban 4th T20I: Among the Tigers bowling unit, Mustafizur Rahman and Mahedi Hasan were impressive who claimed two wickets each and returned with economies- 2.20 and 4.20 respectively.

Bangladesh’s batting decision after winning the toss didn’t bear the expected fruits. Right from the beginning, they were off to a slow star. Barring three players- Naim Sheikh (28), Afif Hossain (20) and Mahedi Hasan (23), the rest of the host’s unit struggled to get runs with the willow.
