States there are three games left so they can still win the series but they need to get things right here. Informs they have three changes, Nathan Ellis, Dan Christian and Ben McDermott come in for Josh Philippe, Mitchell Starc and Andrew Tye. Mahmudullah says they would want to put up a good total, the bowlers have done well and they would want to restrict them later on. Mentions it is a big opportunity for them and he hopes they can win. Informs they are unchanged. TOSS – Up goes the coin and it lands in the favor of Bangladesh. They have ELECTED TO BAT FIRST! UPDATE – Also, we have some timings now! The toss will take place at 1900 local and game will begin at 1915 local, provided there is no further rain. Bowlers, bowlers dominating in Nottingham and here in Bangladesh too. It is the seamers there and it is the spinners here. Courtesy that, the hosts have a 2-0 lead in the series. Another win and that will see them bag the series with 2 games to go and they are favorites to do so. Does Australia have it in them to keep it alive? We will find out. Welcome to the coverage. THERE IS A DEBUTANT FOR THE AUSSIES! Starc has been seen handing the cap over to Nathan Ellis! For those who do not know, he is a pacer, he has been really impressive in the Big Bash in the last few overs and this was on the cards. UPDATE 1837 local – Even better news now! All the covers are off! The clouds too seemed to have passed away. The toss can’t be far away now. Stay tuned. There is now an inspection going on. Both the umpires are out there having a look with their masks on. Wade and Langer are out there having a look at the pitch. They would be desperately hoping for a wicket which is a little more batting friendly. The Bangladesh players are in a huddle. Also, we are entering the territory where we might start to THE COVERS ARE COMING OFF AGAIN! The groundsmen are also doing their bit. Let us hope rain does not make its presence felt again. The covers are back on! There is a slight drizzle and it is quite dark out there! The players too have gone back inside. The groundsmen have also made their way back into shelter so these are not good signs. Good news! The rain has eased off, it has actually stopped! The groundsmen are doing their job and the players too are out in the middle warming up. The drainage here is excellent so we are hopeful of having a 20-over game. Should have had the toss by now but, but, guess what has made its presence felt, THE RAIN! It has been delayed for now. Well, if there is rain here, there is no rain in Nottingham for now so you can catch all the action from the Test match where India’s trail has gone below 30. Isn’t cricket a lot more fun when the bowlers are dominating? Well, high-scoring thrillers are also exciting but there is something that fascinates you when the bowlers make the ball talk. We are hoping for another turner of a wicket here, what about you?
