The second Test will begin from 4th of September at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. Bangladesh is already leading the series by 1-0 after their historic win in Dhaka. Australia is in a must win situation to save the series now.

Eid-ul-Azha is going to be celebrated in the whole country on Saturday which will be the next day after the teams reach Chittagong. For this reason the practice session of the Tigers have been postponed and they are going to celebrate the occasion in the home boy Tamim Iqbal’s place on Chittagong.

Although, the Aussies will be coming to ZACS on that day at 2 p.m. to complete their practice as expected.

To be noted, Bangladesh beat Australia on the first Test in Dhaka after a magnificent performance by Shakib Al Hasan with both the bat and bowl. Now it’s time to defend that victory and take the series win against Australia.
