For the first time in any format, Bangladesh beat Australia in back-to-back matches as the Tigers registered a five-wicket win to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match T20I series at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Wednesday.
Afif Hossain (37 not out) and Nurul Hasan (22 not out) stitched together a vital 56-run unbroken sixth wicket stand to guide the home side to victory with eight balls to spare.
Earlier, disciplined Bangladesh bowling and fielding effort saw Australia restricted to 121/7 in their 20 overs.
Only Mitchell Marsh and Moises Henriques showed resistance against the Bangladesh bowling, scoring 45 and 30 respectively.
Mustafizur Rahman and Shariful Islam shared five wickets, while Shakib al Hasan and Mahedi Hasan picked up one each.
Wade had won the toss and decided to bat first.
Both the teams were unchanged from the first T20I, which Bangladesh won by 23 runs at the same venue Tuesday.
