Player of the series Michael Hussey

The Bangladesh national cricket team played three One Day International (ODI) matches in Australia in 2008, under the captaincy of Mohammad Ashraful. The Australians were captained by Michael Clarke as they comfortably swept the series 3-0.

The series was during the Southern Australian winter, therefore, the matches were played at Marrara Oval, Darwin, in northern Australia. On slow low continental like pitches, Bangladesh failed to score more than 125 in the series. Australian Shaun Marsh was the leading run-scorer for the series, with 175 runs. Australia's Mitchell Johnson finished leading wicket-taker for the series—with six wickets—ahead of team-mates, Cameron White and Stuart Clark. Michael Hussey was named man-of-the-series as the Australian's dominated every facet of the series.
