It's all well and good against Bangladesh, but you're facing the best attack in the world now! So I think the Aussies will have to go with 4 bowlers, but whatever they do I suspect they will be a little short either way.
As I say - the fact that they're facing the best attack in The World (hopefully, of course) means that batsmen and bowlers-who-bat are not as different as otherwise.
