Then Mehdi Hasan put the team in more danger and got out. The hard hitter, who scored 23 off 24 balls with a six, fell into the trap of stamping while playing Adam Jumpa down the wicket. Bangladesh lost 5 wickets for 67 runs. But in the end, Afif-Sohan did not have to be disappointed with the responsible batting.

In the 2nd T20, Australia won the toss and elected to bat first. Their two openers, Alex Carrey and Glenn Philippe started playing. This time to Bangladesh started bowling with spin. Mahdi Hassan was attacked by captain Mahmudullah Riyadh. Australia can make only 1 run from the first over. In the second over, Nasum Ahmed attacked Carry, who hit a pair of boundaries. However, in the next over, Mahedi showed the way to this opener.

Unable to understand the spin in the third ball of the over, Carry (11 off 11 balls) gave up mid-off, Nasum took an easy catch. Australia lost the first wicket by 13 runs. After that Mostafizur Rahman showed magic in his first over with the ball in hand. Australian opener Glenn Philippe was fooled by an incredible delivery from the cutter master. The incident of the sixth over of the Australian innings. Fiz got the boundary in the first ball of the over but then turned around brilliantly. The second and third said dot.

The fourth ball is an incredible delivery. Whether to leave Philippe (10 off 14 balls) or not, the leg stamp that was exposed from the backside flew to Mostafiz's cut. After losing 2 wickets for 31 runs, Australia then took the strategy of watching the game. Moises Hendricks and Mitchell Marsh put on a 50-run stand for the third wicket. Shakib Al Hasan finally broke their 57 off 52 balls. Hendrix missed the line when he went to play a sweep to Shakib in the second ball of the 15th over and was bowled. He made 30 runs off 25 balls.

Marsh was playing once more. However, Shariful Islam made a mistake and continued to bat in one of the deliveries. The batsman, who scored 45 off 42 balls with five boundaries, was caught by wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan Sohan. Mostafiz added more grief to Australia in the 16th over. He took two wickets in a row. Aussie captain Matthew Wade (4 off 7 balls) emptied the leg stump and went to play a shot, the stamp goes up in Mostafiz's great delivery.

Ashton Agar also got confused with the next ball. The ball bounced off his gloves. Wicketkeeper Sohan did not make a mistake in taking that catch. Mostafiz gave hat-trick delivery wide. The result was the opportunity to say the next. This time Mitchell Stark also had an edge. Didn't catch for a while. In the end, Australia could not make a longer score.
