The ICC Women’s World Cup has been an absolute treat for spectators (and bettors) so far. The matches have been close and teams have shown that they are closer together than one might have expected. This next between Bangladesh Women and Australian Women, though, is not one of them.
Australia has been dominant so far and is the team that everyone else is chasing. Bangladesh has improved but it is still a far distance away from being competitive against the leading nations. In a match like this where the result is seen as a foregone conclusion, it can be both tough and easy to find betting value depending on where you look.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Bangladesh Women vs Australia Women ICC Women’s World Cup 2022. The match is going to be played at the Basin Reserve, Wellington on the 25th of March 2022.
BANW VS AUSW TEAM PREVIEWS
Bangladesh Women have fought admirably in a couple of games and eventually won their first-ever match in a World Cup by beating Pakistan. It also came very close against the West Indies but was let down. Now, we know nothing is impossible but even the most ardent of Bangladeshi fans will know it will take a minor miracle for Bangladesh to come close to beating Australia.
Bangladesh’s batting is just not strong enough and it always seems like a collapse is close by. Fargana Hoque, Nigar Sultana, and Rumana Ahmed are probably the three best batters in the Bangladeshi lineup at the moment. They have talent and can play cameos but the lack of big scores from them is concerning.
We don’t think either one of these batters would make it into the Australian Women’s team right now.
The bowling attack for Bangladesh is spin-dominated. Unless the wicket starts to take a lot of spins (which is unlikely at the Basin Reserve), Bangladesh’s bowling is going to struggle to make any impact. Jahanara Alam and Nahida Akter have been the two most impressive bowlers for Bangladesh in this World Cup.
Australia is unbeaten in the ICC World Cup 2022 edition and has also broken the world record for the most consecutive wins chasing. The Aussies have been pushed on more than one occasion but they have managed to come up with trumps every single time.
Rachel Haynes and Meg Lanning are leading the batting effort with excellent cameos from Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, and Elyse Perry as well.
The flat batting surfaces are suiting Australia and their batters are just crushing bowling attacks every single time they come into bat.
The bowling lineup for Australia has so far escaped scrutiny but it has not been most impressive. It has allowed batters from England, India, and South Africa to post big totals. Wicket-taking has been a problem and the runs have also flowed quite freely when Australia has bowled.
The fact remains, though, that Bangladesh is unlikely to have the batting strength to take advantage of this potential chink in the Aussie armor.

Match: Bangladesh Women vs Australia Women, Match 25, ICC Women’s World Cup 2022.
Date and Time: March 25, 2022, Tuesday; 03:30 AM IST.
Venue: Basin Reserve, Wellington.
The pitch at the Basin Reserve in Wellington has been a decent one for batting. However, the chasing team could find it tough in this game. Winning the toss and batting first should be the way forward.
There is a chance of heavy rain, meaning the DLS could come into play. The temperature should be around the 15-degree Celsius mark and the humidity mostly in the 60s.
TOSS: TO BOWL
It has been a high-scoring venue where bowlers have found assistance only in the early overs of the game. The wicket becomes good to bat on as the game progresses. The side winning the toss would want to make use of the conditions by opting to bowl first on the wicket.
PROBABLE XI BANGLADESH WOMEN
Sharmin Akhter, Murshida Khatun, Fargana Hoque, Nigar Sultana (c & wk), Rumana Ahmed, Ritu Moni, Lata Mondal, Salma Khatun, Nahida Akter, Fahima Khatun, Jahanara Alam.
Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy (wk), Meg Lanning (c), Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Tahlia McGrath, Ashleigh Gardner, Jess Jonassen, Annabel Sutherland, Alana King, Megan Schutt.
Two sides come with contrasting forms into this game. Bangladesh has hardly won anything in this tournament, and they must put up their best effort with the bat to challenge the Australians. The Aussies have looked in excellent form with the bat and the ball and they would start outright favorites to win this game. Punters must look for the best bookies if they want to get value for their money.
Australia Women to win.
