Australia as a part of their preparations for the World T20I  had some difficult tours with many of their top players making themselves unavailable due to bio bubble fatigue.  Due to this reason, they struggled badly on the tours of the West Indies and Bangladesh.

In the West Indies, they were thrashed in the T20 series  4-1 by the strong home side with few good performances coming from Mitch Marsh and Starc.  Australia later made amends by winning the ODI series 2-1.

However, a bigger shock awaited for them at Bangladesh who before this T20I series never won a T20I match against Australia, let alone a series.  Australian second-string players completely failed to cope in the humidity and the spinning pitches of Bangladesh and were rudely thrashed 4-1 in the series. It was a great and historic series win for Mahmudullah and his boys. Even Bangladesh played without two of their top-notch stars Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim.

The difficulty faced by Australia was illustrated aptly by Andrew Tye while he was bowling the last over of the first T20I. After bowling the 5th ball he vomited on the field probably unable to bear the humidity of the venue. 

However, he completed his spell in which he bowled well getting 1/22. He ended with 5 wickets in 3 matches in the series with 13 average which was a good performance. His ability to bowl cutters and slower ones can be handy on subcontinent pitches and Australia should have kept this in mind while they finalised their world cup squad .
