Meanwhile, Australia have hundred percent winning record against Bangladesh in Test format as they have thrashed the Tigers all of the four times they faced them. However, a lot of things have been changed in this period of the time.
Bangladesh are now considered as one of the toughest opponents in the home ground as they thrashed a strong England side last year in only three days. They even achieved victory against Sri Lanka in a away series earlier this year.
If we look at the performance of the Aussies in last 10 years, they have managed to win only two matches out 22 in Asian sub-continent. From 2013 to 2016 they had to face three white-washes in Asian sub-continent.
However at one point, both Bangladesh team and Australia team are same as none of the current players of the both side has never faced each other in Test cricket. So it can be said, it will be a great competition between the new generation of the two country.
