Australia were a little lucky to leave with a point from their first match against New Zealand, but they will expect a much better performance when they play Bangladesh in their second match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

After only managing one point from their first match, and that too thanks to some rain, Australia will know they absolutely must beat Bangladesh if there are to find a place in the semifinals of CT 2017.

Bangladesh are also in desperation mode, having lost their opening match to England, so this will be a battle between two teams in need of a win at all costs.

Here is a look at how Australia vs Bangladesh might pan out.

If Australia bat first:

David Warner and Aaron Finch are a little circumspect to start the innings, but slowly they get into their groove, and when they do, the Bangladesh bowlers struggle to stop the flow of runs.

The Australia openers put on 98 runs for the first wicket, creating the perfect platform for the rest of the batsmen to take advantage.

Finch is the first to go, caught in the deep off Mehedi Hasan, who comes into the Bangladesh playing XI for this match.

Warner and Steve Smith add 32 runs, before the former is dismissed by Shakib Al Hasan. Smith, though, continues on, and with Glenn Maxwell, Chris Lynn (if he plays) and Travis Head chipping in nicely, Australia are able to make 329.

The Bangladesh chase is a disaster from the beginning.

Tamim Iqbal, fresh from a century in the first game, is dismissed by Mitchell Starc, with Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim also falling without troubling the scorers too much, as the Australia bowlers come out firing after their underwhelming performance against New Zealand.

There is a brief partnership between Sabbir Rahman and Shakib, but once that alliance is broken, it is curtains for Bangladesh.

If Bangladesh bat first:

Tamim and Sarkar put on 52 runs in the opening partnership, before it all starts to go wrong for Bangladesh.

Once Tamim is dismissed by Adam Zampa, Sarkar follows suit in the next over, with Sabbir also unable to make much of an impact out in the middle.

Mushfiqur and Shakib stay together for nearly 20 overs, but with runs hard to come by, the pressure eventually tells, as the latter holes out in the deep.

Mahmudullah comes in and decides to counter-attack, and that nearly works, before an unfortunate run out ends Bangladesh's hopes of making a big score.

Australia, with just 230 to get, decide to try and finish the match off quickly, with Warner and Finch smoking fours and sixes to keep the run rate well above six.

While the openers fall in quick succession, Smith and Maxwell get together, before Head finishes the match off with plenty of overs to spare.
