The hosts have lost three games on the trot and will be looking to emulate Netherlands who defeated England in their last game. This would give their supporters some joy after what has been a period of unrelenting support in adversity from local fans.

Bangladesh never looked like they would get into the semis, with their campaign tapering away from the final stages of the qualifiers when they lost to Hong Kong. They only managed to make it to the Super 10 owing to a superior run rate.

In the last three games, they were not able to stamp their superiority in any facet of the field, with their bowling leaving much to be desired. Their batting line-up is strewn with match winners, but none of them has been able to make a notable contribution in the tournament.

A win against one of the most in-form teams in the world, Australia, will let them leave the field on a high note.

Australia were among the tournament favourites coming into the series, having whitewashed England in the Ashes and put in a splendid performance against South Africa to win the series. However, their players failed to adjust to the pace and bounce of the wicket and are facing the ignominy of crashing out of the tournament without winning a single group game thus far.

They were completely outplayed by India but came close to winning against Pakistan. The absence of bowler Mitchell Johnson has had a startling effect on their fortunes, something which they need to address after heading back home.
