Both teams made one change, with Australia spinner Adam Zampa coming in for John Hastings, while Bangladesh opted for Mehedi Hasan in place of Mosaddek Hossain.

Bangladesh were beaten by England at The Oval in their opening group match, while Australia's first fixture against New Zealand was abandoned due to rain.

"It looks a very good wicket to bat on. It's used, so it might be slower later on," Mashrafe said.

"We feel like when we scored 305 we were a bowler short. We have an exciting off-spinner who hopefully will help us.

"Hopefully we'll make a good total that we can defend."

Teams:

Australia

Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steve Smith (captain), Moises Henriques, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade (wkt), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

Bangladesh

Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wkt), Sabbir Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mashrafe Mortaza (captain), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain
