World Cup 2019: "I know a few players in our dressing room who believe we can beat anybody" says Mashrafe Mortaza ahead of their game against Australia
Bangladesh will hope to continue their giant-killing run when they take on Australia at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Thursday at the Cricket World Cup.Having recorded convincing wins against South Africa and West Indies, the Tigers now turn their attention to the defending champions.However, history is stacked up against the Tigers, who have only beaten Australia once since 1990 in twenty completed matches.The top-ranked all-rounder in the world, Shakib Al Hasan, has been in the form of his life, scoring two centuries so far in the tournament. The left-handed batsman is also the leading run scorer of the tournament with 384 runs in four matches.Bangladesh face the prospect of having to beat either Australia or India from their remaining four matches - that also includes games against Afghanistan and Pakistan - to seal a spot in the semi-finals.
