Australia tour of Bangladesh: The five match T20Is will be of renewed importance especially with Australia succumbing to a 4-1 defeat in the West Indies. The series gives some fringe players the game time to make their claim for a spot in the T20 World Cup squad, especially in the absence of David Warner, Steven Smith, Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell. The squad is unlikely to see any additions from the tour of West Indies, barring any last moment changes owing to injury.
