Bangladesh has already sealed the five-match T20 series against Australia. However, Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah Riyad urged the batsmen to play more sensibly as the hosts have struggled with their batting throughout the series.

Bangladesh top-order has been struggling since the first T20, one of the biggest concerns was the opener Soumya Sarkar, who was great with the bat in the recently concluded T20 series against Zimbabwe.

However, the left-arm opener has completely failed in the ongoing series as he managed to score only 12 runs in four matches.

During the post-match conference, Mahmudullah has advised the batsmen to be more careful and sensible to overcome the batting failure. Bangladesh T20 captain also said that batting in the fourth match was not easy.

"It was always difficult to chase, but we didn't assess the wicket well enough batting first. It was a 120-target wicket. As batters, we need to be cautious and sensible. Today's wicket was hardest among all,” said Mahmudullah.

Bangladesh batsmen have scored only one half-century in the current series. That too came from the bat of Mahmudullah.
