  • 382 to get in 300 legal balls. Bangladesh showed their batting talent in the last match against West Indies where they overhauled a 300-plus total with 51 balls to spare. Can they repeat it again against the likes of Starc, Cummins and Coulter-Nile? We will find that out shortly.
  • Harsha Bhogle catches up with the man of the moment, David Warner, for a little chat. The Aussie opener starts by admitting that he felt a bit bogged down at the start but managed to hang in there and build good partnerships with Finch and Khawaja. On whether 200 was in his mind, Warner replies that when you are deep in your innings you are fatigued. On his new approach, Warner smiles and says that he is looking to make up for the one year he lost. On the pitch, Warner informs the wicket is on the slower side and feels that Rubel hit some good lengths. He is happy that they capitalized at the back end. States they have to bowl well and try to get as many wickets as possible early on in the Powerplay and build pressure.
  • Bangladesh were abysmal in the field! Their bowling wasn't up to the mark and the fielding was in the mood to do some charity. Such was the state of their bowling that the part-timer, Soumya Sarkar, was the best bowler for them with a 3-wicket haul. The Asian team conceded runs at a haemorrhaging rate in the last 10 overs (131/4) and are now left with an improbable task of chasing a gigantic total. They did make a tiny comeback towards the end when a flurry of wickets fell but that didn't have much say in the final score.
  • David Warner was in his zone today and had the lady luck as well. He started slowly, got dropped on 10, then survived a run out chance also and after that, he just took the attack to the bowlers - smashing 166 off 147 balls, the best individual score in this World Cup. Usman Khawaja also showed his hitting talent in his knock and was unlucky to miss out on his century by 11 runs.
  • 316, 307, 334 and now 381! Australia have peaked well with the bat as the tournament has progressed. Scintillating batting by the Kangaroos today as they feasted on the bowling of the Bangla Tigers. Everything went according to the plan right from the toss. Their openers made a cautious start and then pressed on the accelerator. After the century opening stand was broken with the departure of Aaron Finch, David Warner constructed an even better partnership with Usman Khawaja worth 192. The platform was set for them after that for a big finish and unlike other games, their batsmen didn't disappoint. Glenn Maxwell launched into the Bangla bowlers from the word go and scored a whirlwind 10-ball 32 to power the Australian total beyond the 350-run mark.
  • 49.6 Very full in length on off, Stoinis throws all his power behind his shot and drills it down to long off. The fielder in the deep moves across to his right to stop the ball and the batsmen take a brace. 13 in the last over, Australia end on a massive 381/5!
  • 49.5 FOUR! Streaky! You can't do much with that as a bowler. Back of a length ball on middle, Stoinis swings his bat across the line and it flies off the top edge to the third man fence.
  • 49.4 FOUR! That's hit dead straight! Mustafizur misses his yorker mark and it falls very full on middle, Stoinis removes his front leg again and bludgeons it back past the bowler.
  • 49.3 Nice yorker on off by Rahman. Carey digs it out to wide mid off and scampers across for a run.
  • 49.2 Lands it full and on middle, Stoinis clears his front leg and forces it down to long on for another run.
  • 49.1 A low full toss outside off, Carey slashes it down to deep cover for a run.
  • The players have returned on the field for the final over. Mustafizur to continue from this end. Carey on strike...
  • Update 1426 local (1326 GMT) - Good news. The rain has stopped and the covers are coming off. Play to resume in another 9 minutes. Stay tuned...
  • Update 1409 local (1309 GMT) - GOING OFF! Dear me, the rain has picked its intensity and the umpires have no other option but to call for covers. Still 6 balls left in this innings as the players leave the field. Let's hope it's just a passing shower.
  • 48.6 Shortish and on off, Carey gets back and slaps it down to covers for one. 368/5
  • NO, NO, PLEASE NO! It has started raining here. It is coming down with quite some force. Please rain god not today. Not now. Let us have a full game.
  • 48.5 FOUR! Shot! Sarkar serves a low full toss outside off, Carey reaches out for it and caresses his drive past extra cover for a boundary.
  • 48.4 Too full and outside off, Stoinis shapes up for the paddle scoop but seeing the line, he opens the face and pushes it to short third man for a run.
  • 48.3 Superb delivery. A near yorker outside off, Stoinis goes hard at it and only manages to dig it out off the bottom edge.
  • 48.2 A low full toss outside off, Marcus drills it to the left of long off and rushes back for the second run.
  • 48.1 Slower short ball on middle, Alex gets on top of the bounce and pulls it through square leg for a run.
  • 47.6 A low full toss around leg, Carey works it out towards long on for one. Excellent over by The Fizz, 5 runs and wicket from it. 359/5
  • 47.5 Driven towards the mid off region. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 47.4 A high full toss on leg, Carey doesn't go with the full swing of his bat and just pushes it down to long on for a run. Last 9 balls have gone for just 5 runs and it has accounted for three wickets. A bit of a comeback from the Bangla Tigers.
  • 47.3 Lands it on a length and down the leg side, Stoinis nudges it to fine leg for a run.
  • 47.2 Fullish and on off, Carey drives it to the cover fielder standing at the edge of the circle and collects a single to open his account.
  • Alex Carey is the new batsman in.
  • 47.1 OUT! No inside edge. Smith is dead in front! Rahman fails to execute his yorker but still strikes. A low full toss in the line of the stumps, Steve shuffles across a bit to work it on the leg side but misses. He is thudded on the pads, they appeal and the finger goes up. Smith takes the referral, maybe just because it's left and the Ball Tracker shows three reds. Finally, someone other than Sarkar has taken a wicket.
  • Rahman has trapped Smith right in front with a full toss. The umpire has raised his finger and only an inside edge can save Smith. He has taken the DRS. Let's see...
  • Bowling change.
  • 46.6 Sarkar is showing his full range. Hits the yorker mark on middle, Smith does well to keep it out on the leg side and gets off the mark with a single. 354/4
  • Steve Smith walks out to bat next. He is also quite handy with his unorthodox style of playing big shots.
  • 46.5 OUT! Khawaja is gone! 3-fer for Sarkar! Yet again he gets a wicket with a short delivery. Not much pace there as he lands it around off. Khawaja shapes up for the pull shot but ends up bottom edging it behind. Rahim does well to snap a good low catch inches above the surface. Soumya Sarkar is having a ball, literally.
  • 46.4 Driven towards the mid off region. They pick up a single.
  • 46.3 Back of a length delivery outside off, Stoinis stays back to steer it through the line but finds short third man. A rare dot.
  • Maxwell gone, who will walk out to bat now? Will they go for a power-hitter in Stoinis or Carey? Yes they will. It is going to be Marcus Stoinis who will join Khawaja out in the middle. He has the ability to go big from ball one but has been cautious in his approach of late at the start.
  • 46.2 OUT! Maxwell is run out! There was a single on offer but for some reason Khawaja stuttered after taking off. A full ball on middle and leg, Glenn tickles it off his pads to short fine leg and sets off for a run. Usman responds but then seeing the fielder attack the ball, he stops. Maxwell is left high and dry in the middle of the pitch and to his bad luck, Rubel Hossain comes up with a direct hit at the striker's end. End of an entertaining cameo from the Big Show!
  • 46.1 SIX! Sarkar is given yet another over here. Hmm... He bowls a short ball at his pace, Maxwell picks it in a trice and hammers his pull shot over mid-wicket. 350 up for Australia!
  • 45.6 FOUR! It's becoming too easy! 25 runs in the over! Full and around middle, Khawaja hops back to make room and plays a delightful drive in front of square on the off side for a boundary. England's 397 in danger here! 346/2
  • 45.5 Whips a length ball down to wide long on where Tamim makes a stop near the fence. The third umpire finds it clean and three runs have been added to the total.
  • 45.4 Yorker on off, Maxwell digs it out to covers.
  • 45.3 SIX! 102 runs have come in the last 40 balls. Scintillating stuff. Shortish ball on middle, on the slower side, Maxwell with a clean strike dismisses it over square leg. The Big Show is on fire, delivering the KO punch to Bangladesh!
  • 45.2 FOUR! BOOM! A length ball around off, Maxwell hangs on the back foot and smacks it over covers for a boundary.
  • 45.1 SIX! Full and wide with mid off in the circle is always a danger. Maxwell latches onto it outside off and transfers all his weight on the right leg and thwacks it over extra cover. It falls flush on the rope and is given as a biggie after consulting the third umpire.
  • Free Hit loading... Maxwell on strike!!!
  • 45.1 A low full toss on middle, Usman flicks it to deep mid-wicket for a run. Hang on, Rubel has overstepped...
  • 44.6 FOUR! This is a tremendous shot by Glenn Maxwell. A wide yorker outside off, Maxwell reaches out for it and squeezes it through point for a boundary. 12 runs from the over but a big wicket of Warner as well. 321/2
  • 44.5 A yorker on middle, Usman keeps it out on the leg side and crosses.
  • 44.4 Maxwell has driven it through mid on. They pick up a single.
  • 44.3 Shortish and on middle, it's eased to wide long on for a brace.
  • Glenn Maxwell is the next batsman in. He waits for Warner to cross the fence, gives him a pat on the back and then enters the field. The Big Show would try to finish some unfinished business here.
  • 44.2 OUT! So, it turns out to be the masterstroke from Mashrafe Mortaza! Sarkar has dismissed Warner. Such is the state of Bangladesh's bowling that both the wickets have gone to the part-timer, Sarkar. He delivers a short ball outside off, gives no pace to the batsman to work with. Warner delays his shot and tries to play the ramp shot. But he fails to generate enough power and timing. He ends up ballooning it in the air and Rubel Hossain accepts the simplest of catches inside the circle. No double century for David Warner. He falls for 166 and is walking back to a big cheer from the crowd. End of a terrific, terrific innings from David Warner. Take a bow!
  • 44.1 FOUR! Doesn't matter who the bowler is, the ball is going to the fence. Sarkar bowls a low full toss outside off, Warner reaches out for it and squeezes it through cover-point.
  • Change in plan from Mashrafe Mortaza at the last moment. He was about to give the over to Mustafizur Rahman but then brings in Soumya Sarkar. A big punt, this.
  • 43.6 Too full in length on middle, Warner flicks it firmly to deep mid-wicket for one. 13 from the over, 59 in the first four overs of Powerplay 3. This is insane hitting from Australia. 309/1
  • 43.5 Finally a yorker on leg, Warner digs it out safely to the leg side for a couple of runs.
  • 43.4 FOUR! Up and over! Short in length and outside off, Warner rocks back and lofts it over short third man for a boundary. Poor death bowling by Bangladesh.
  • 43.3 FOUR! Plays the conventional shot and finds the fence! A length delivery on middle, David winds up for a big heave across the line and puts it away for a boundary at wide long on. Moves to 155, the highest individual score in this World Cup.
  • 43.2 The batsman works it down the leg side. They pick up a single.
  • 43.1 Tries to be too fancy, Warner. But he fails to middle his attempted Switch Hit. A delivery in the channel outside leg, Warner shuffles across with the intention to spoon it over short third man but misses. It goes off his pads to the off side and they cross for a leg bye.
  • Rubel Hossain is back on.
  • 42.6 Mortaza trying his best to execute his yorker but without any success. Another full toss on middle and this time he gets away with it. Warner smashes it to deep mid-wicket for one. 14 from the over, 46 in the last 3. 296/1
  • 42.5 Angles in a length ball on off, Khawaja gets forward and opens the face of the bat late to work it through cover-point for one.
  • 42.4 FOUR! Impeccable timing on this shot! Slower length ball outside off, Khawaja takes his front leg forward and creams his square drive to the fence.
  • 42.3 6th 150-plus score in ODIs for David Warner! Too full in length around leg, Warner keeps it out through mid-wicket for one. Raises his bat for the crowd and his teammates are clapping in the balcony. Double century?
  • 42.2 SIX! Another full toss from Mortaza but this time the batsman is different. Warner stays back to receive the gift and spanks it over mid-wicket for a biggie.
  • 42.1 A low full toss on off, from 'round the wicket, Khawaja drives it down through mid on for a run.
  • Mashrafe Mortaza is back on. 7-0-42-0 so far.
  • 41.6 A low full toss on leg, Khawaja clips it to fine leg for a run. 19 runs in total from this over, 32 in the first two of Powerplay 3. 282/1
  • 41.5 FOUR! 18 runs off the over so far! This is turning out to be a very expensive one for Bangladesh. Short in length on middle, too straight in line, Usman swivels and helps his pull shot down to long leg for a boundary.
  • 41.4 FOUR! This is very poor bowling from someone who is known to bowl superbly at the death. A full toss on the pads, Khawaja accepts the gift gleefully and just lofts it in front of square leg for a boundary.
  • 41.3 Bowls a full toss this time, Khawaja turns it through square leg and rushes back for the second run.
  • 41.2 FOUR! 150-run stand comes up! This has come in good time as well. Rahman goes short this time and bowls it without much pace, Khawaja stands back quietly and then ramps it down to third man for a boundary.
  • 41.1 EDGY FOUR! Rahman tries to bowl the yorker but it reaches on a low full toss to the batsman. Khawaja throws his bat at it and it takes the bottom edge before running past the keeper for a boundary at third man.
  • Mustafizur Rahman back for another burst. 6-0-32-0, his figures. Has been economical so far but the death overs are not too kind on the bowlers.
  • 40.6 SIX! This one has disappeared! Shakib drops it short on middle and leg, Warner attacks it with all his might and pummels it over mid-wicket for a biggie. 13 from the over, a good start to Powerplay 3 for Australia. 263/1
  • 40.5 Flatter and on middle, Warner pulls but finds short fine leg.
  • 40.4 FOUR! Out comes the reverse hit! Tossed up ball around middle, David immediately gets into the position and nails it down towards third man for a boundary.
  • 40.3 Short and down the leg side, Usman pulls to the right of short fine leg. The fielder makes a tumbling stop and they cross.
  • 40.2 A low full toss on off, Khawaja flicks it through mid-wicket and returns for the second run.
  • 40.1 Misses out! Full and down the leg side, Khawaja sweeps but straight to short fine leg.
  • Shakib Al Hasan to start Powerplay 3. He has not had the best of days with the ball. Not only has he been wicketless he has also been expensive.
  • Powerplay 3 signalled. Now a maximum of 5 fielders can be outside the 30-yard circle till the end of this innings. I doubt they will keep any less than 5 outside now.
  • 39.6 Easily done. Back of a length ball on off, Usman calmly plays it through square leg and keeps strike with a run. 13 from the over. 250/1 with 10 overs to go in this innings. 250/1
  • 39.5 Length delivery on the pads, slower in pace, Warner helps it to mid-wicket and rotates the strike.
  • 39.4 Straighter delivery, on a length, Khawaja uses his wrists to work it through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 39.3 Short again, going down the leg side, David helps it down to fine leg for one.
  • 39.2 Shortish and around leg, Warner tucks it towards square leg and takes a couple of runs.
  • 39.1 SIX! That's demolished! Rubel serves it full and in the line of the stumps, Warner brings down a straight bat and launches it over the bowler's head for a biggie. Didn't try to hit it too hard, he has just timed it.
  • 39.1 Wide! Short ball down the leg side, Warner tries his best to pull but fails to make any connection.
  • 38.6 Short delivery, on the slower side around off, Khawaja goes back and pulls it in front of square leg. The fielder in the deep makes a sliding stop and the batsmen take a couple of runs. 237/1
  • 38.5 The batsman was beaten and missed the line of the delivery.
  • 38.4 Fuller and outside off, driven off the front foot but straight to covers.
  • 38.3 Shortish again, on middle, Warner flashes and misses. Rahim fumbles and they cross for a bye.
  • 38.2 FOUR! Boom! Rahman serves another slower one, it's on the shorter side and this time Warner is ready on the back foot. He packs a punch and sends it rocketing over extra cover for a boundary.
  • 38.1 Beaten for the lack of pace! Shortish and on middle, Warner moves back to make space for a big shot but is early into the swing of his bat. He misses the ball completely and it goes over the leg stump.
  • 37.6 Another delivery on the pads has been eased away to backward square leg for a single. 230/1
  • 37.5 Fifty for Khawaja, his 11th in ODIs. Rubel delivers it on leg, Khawaja tickles it through square leg for a run. A fine knock by him and he has played an active role in this century partnership.
  • 37.4 FOUR! Helped on its way! Back of a length delivery around middle and leg, Khawaja shifts his weight on the back foot and eases it behind square leg for a boundary. Nicely timed.
  • 37.3 Played to the point region by the batsman. They pick up a single. 400 runs for Warner in this tournament!
  • 37.2 FOUR! What a shot! 100-run stand comes up with this glorious boundary. Rubel bowls it short and in the line of the stumps, Warner jumps back to create room and steers it through point. Only the fourth time in World Cup history that the first two wicket partnerships have put on century stands.
  • 37.1 Short in length on off, Usman pulls it off one leg to deep mid-wicket for a run. Liton misfields but doesn't concede any extra run.
  • 36.6 Bang! Short in length and close to off stump, not enough room there, Warner camps back and flat-bats it over extra cover. The sweeper in the deep cuts it off and they take a couple of runs. 218/1
  • 36.5 Short and on off, Usman gets on top of the bounce and pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a run.
  • 36.4 Rahman tries to spear in a delivery but it turns out to be a full ball on the leg side. Warner is beaten for pace as he tries to flick. It goes off his pads to mid-wicket and they steal a leg bye.
  • 36.3 Reaches out for a full ball wide outside off and plays a flowing drive through covers for a run.
  • 36.2 Slower one, an off cutter outside off, Khawaja drives on the up but fails to beat the diving cover fielder.
  • 36.1 Back of a length delivery on off, Warner hangs back and pushes it through covers for a run.
  • Drinks break. Australia are placed superbly here. 212 already on the board and they have 9 wickets left to go hammer and tongs in the last 14 overs. A total close to 350 will be in their mind and with the kind of firepower left in their batting tank, they are very much likely to achieve it. Bangladesh have not bowled too badly here but lack of wickets means that they have failed to gain any control here. It will be all about minimizing the damage from hereon. Mustafizur Rahman to bowl after the mini-break.
  • 35.6 Gets behind the line of the delivery and drives it past the diving bowler for a run at long on. 212/1
  • 35.5 Warner is down in pain! Rubel bowls an effort delivery. He extracts some extra bounce from a good length around middle and Warner ends up getting an inside edge near the box region. He immediately falls down on the ground and then catches some breath.
  • 35.4 Fuller in length and on the pads, Warner flicks but finds the mid-wicket fielder.
  • 35.3 Short and on middle, Khawaja turns inside the crease and pulls it to deep square leg for a single.
  • 35.2 Shortish and on off, Warner forces it out to mid off for a run.
  • 35.1 A length ball down the leg side, Usman deflects it off his pads to fine leg for a run.
  • Rubel Hossain is back into the attack. 4-0-17-0, so far. Bangladesh will be hoping for some tight overs from him at the back-end.
  • 34.6 Length delivery on middle, Usman flicks it towards square leg for a run. 11 runs have come from the over. Expensive over from Mortaza in his comeback over. 208/1
  • 34.5 FOUR! Second boundary of the over. Mortaza bowls short of a length delivery, Khawaja pulls it over mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 34.4 Full on middle, Warner drives it towards mid on for a single.
  • 34.3 FOUR! Excellent shot from David. Short of a length delivery, Warner picks it early and pulls it over mid-wicket for a boundary. 200 up for Australia. Time for David Warner to accelerate.
  • 34.2 Length delivery on off, Warner cuts it to point.
  • 34.1 Presents the full face of the ball and gently pushes it in the direction of mid off for a run.
  • The skipper is back into the attack. Needs a wicket and also needs to stop the run flow. Can the captain deliver?
  • 33.6 Loopy and full outside off, it's stroked through covers for another single in this over. 7 from it without any risk. Mehedi has bowled out, 10-0-59-0! Decent effort. 197/1
  • 33.5 Rocks back to a short ball and cuts it through point for a single.
  • 33.4 Sliding down the leg side, helped to mid-wicket for one.
  • 33.3 Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. They have run through for a single.
  • 33.2 Flatter and shorter on off, punched down to long on for one.

  • 32.5 Uses his feet to come down the track and eases it through mid off for a run.
  • 32.4 On the pads, Warner plays it down to mid-wicket.
  • 32.3 Gets down and reverse sweeps it wide of short third man for a run.
  • 32.2 CENTURY NO. 16 IN ODIS FOR WARNER! He gets there with a gentle tickle off his pads through square leg for a run. Here comes the famous leap of joy from him. This is his second hundred in this World Cup and he continues with his rich vein of form. Kisses the badge on his helmet and he is all smiles. Plenty of overs left still and David can go for a really big one here.
  • 32.1 Full and flighted on leg, flicked straight to mid-wicket.
  • 31.6 Driven towards the mid off region. No run to complete a 9-run over. 186/1
  • 31.5 Full and floated outside off, it's driven past the cover fielder and the long off fielder does well to chase it down in the deep. Three taken, Warner moves to 99!

  • 31.3 Goes on the back foot and forces it through covers for one.

  • 30.4 Hangs on the back foot and smashes it to deep cover for a run.

  • 30.2 Flighted and full outside off, Usman tries to reverse sweep but misses.
  • 30.1 A long hop on middle, Warner crouches and pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a run.
  • Shakib Al Hasan is back! He has been expensive so far. 3-0-24-0 his figures so far.
  • 29.6 Flatter and on off, defended off the back foot to backward point. Only 3 from the over! 168/1
  • 29.5 Goes hard at a full ball on off and gets an inside edge onto the pads. It deflects to cover-point and Khawaja looks for a run. He is sent back by Warner.

  • 28.3 Driven towards the mid on region. They pick up a single.

  • 28.1 Back of a length delivery on off, Khawaja remains on the back foot and strokes it to sweeper cover for a single.

  • 25.3 Mix-up, a run out chance but safe! Khawaja jumps out of the crease to a full ball and bunts it down to mid on. He straightaway wants the run, Warner stutters a bit though as he was ball-watching but then he responds. Sabbir, stationed there, attacks the ball but fumbles while picking it up and that allows David some extra seconds to dash to the other end safely.
  • 25.2 Too full in length on off, David drives it through mid off and takes a single.
  • 25.1 Quicker and flatter on middle, punched back to the bowler who dived to stop the ball.
  • 24.6 Khawaja has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. Another 7-run over, 14 from the last two. 139/1
  • 24.5 FOUR! First boundary for Usman Khawaja! A loose delivery, short and on middle, Khawaja swivels a bit on the back foot and directs his half-pull shot behind square leg for a boundary. Easily done, really.
  • 24.4 Strides forward to a full ball and strokes it through covers for a couple of runs.
  • 24.3 Warner has pushed it to the cover region. One run added to the total.
  • 24.2 Gets behind the line of the delivery and punches it back in the direction of the bowler. Sarkar moves across to his right, collides with the non-striker a bit, apologizes immediately and the ball is picked up by the mid on fielder.
  • 24.1 Well stopped, Sabbir! Short in length and outside off, Warner slaps it off his back foot and Sabbir at backward point makes a diving stop.
  • 23.6 Shortish and outside off, Warner stays back and cracks it through cover-point for a run. 7 from the over. 132/1
  • 23.5 Flatter and quicker again, on middle, Khawaja gets forward and forces it down to long on for a run.
  • 23.4 Driven through the covers by the batsman. Two runs added to the total.
  • 23.3 Fires in a flatter delivery on off, Khawaja punches it from the crease to covers.

  • 23.1 Goes on the back foot to a short ball and punches it square of the wicket on the off side for a couple.
  • 22.6 Gets on the back foot and pushes it wide of mid off for a run. 125/1
  • 22.5 Shout for an lbw! Sarkar delivers a full ball around leg, Khawaja tries to flick but misses. He is rapped on the pads, the bowler screams his lungs out in appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Mortaza asks his bowler regarding the DRS and then looks at his keeper. They are of the opinion that it pitched outside leg and hence no referral is taken. Meanwhile, the batsmen have crossed for a leg bye.
  • 22.4 Good length delivery on off, Usman Khawaja hangs on the back foot and pushes it to mid off.
  • 22.3 Angling away from the southpaw, Usman tries to drive off the front foot but it takes the inner half and goes to mid on.
  • 22.2 On a length and outside off, Khawaja plays late with an angled bat but still finds the point fielder.
  • 22.1 A gentle length delivery, on off, Khawaja pushes it down from the crease to mid off.
  • 21.6 Shorter on off, Warner punches it to the man at cover. 123/1
  • 21.5 Tossed up on the stumps, Warner taps it back to the bowler.
  • 21.4 Tossed up on off, Warner strokes it to the right of the bowler. Hasan moves to that side quickly and stops the ball.
  • 21.3 Khawaja is off the mark. Floated on middle, this time Khawaja nudges it down to long on for a single.
  • 21.2 Tossed up on middle, Usman strokes it to mid-wicket.
  • 21.1 Flighted on off, Warner milks it down to long off for a single.
  • 20.6 Fullish and outside off, Khawaja pushes it off his front foot to cover-point. 4 runs and a wicket from the over. Soumya Sarkar has done what he was brought on to do. 121/1
  • Who will walk out at number 3? Smith, Khawaja or maybe Maxwell or Stoinis? It is going to be Usman Khawaja, the designated number 3 who will bat at his normal postion.
  • 20.5 OUT! Soft dismissal for Aaron Finch! Sarkar delivers an innocuous delivery on the shorter side outside off. Finch remains back footed maybe trying to play it square of the wicket on the off side. But the bounce gets big on his bat and he ends up handing a straightforward catch to Rubel Hossain at short third man. He makes no mistake and finally, Bangladesh get their first breakthrough. The 121-run opening stand is broken and Finch walks back looking a bit disappointed.
  • 20.4 Reaches out for a length ball wide outside off and strokes it to sweeper cover for one.
  • 20.3 Angling across the batsman, Warner takes the full ball in his stride and drives it through the gap between extra cover and mid off. A couple taken.
  • 20.2 Wicket to wicket line, the length is fuller and Finch just presents a straight bat to push it down towards long on for a run.
  • 20.1 Pitches it up and on off, Finch drives but finds the extra cover fielder.
  • Bowling change from Mashrafe Mortaza with nothing happening. It's Soumya Sarkar to bowl his slow medium deliveries.
  • 19.6 Gets forward to a full ball and defends it on the off side. 7 from the over! 117/0
  • 19.5 Driven through mid on by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 19.4 FOUR! 24th ODI fifty for Aaron Finch! He has been in sublime form of late and is just continuing to power the Australian innings forward with his fluent knocks. A delivery down the leg side has been eased fine for a boundary at fine leg. Finch raises his bat to acknowledge the crowd. He got a big century in the last match and would be eyeing another here.
  • 19.3 Fullish and on middle, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 19.2 Too full in length on middle, Finch makes room and hits it off the inner half to deep mid-wicket for a couple.
  • 19.1 Quicker and flatter on off, Finch sticks back to play it late but finds the point fielder.
  • 18.6 Poor from the fielder. They were so good in the field against West Indies but have been lethargic today. Good length ball on off, Warner plays it through covers. The fielder misfields there allowing them to get an extra run. 110/0
  • 18.5 This time bowls it on the body, Warner looks to flick but misses and the ball rolls to the side of the pitch off his hips.
  • 18.5 WIDE! Another one down the leg side. This is fuller and now Warner misses his flick. Umpire having to do some stretching here.
  • 18.5 WIDE! Effort ball gone wrong. Rubel bangs it in short but down the leg side, Warner looks to pull but misses. Wide signalled.
  • 18.4 Good length ball on off, Finch pushes it wide of mid off and gets a single.
  • 18.3 Back of a length this time, Warner pulls it down to fine leg and gets a single.
  • 18.2 Corrects his line and bowls it on middle, Warner defends it to mid off.
  • 18.1 Good length ball on the body, Warner looks to pull but misses and gets hit on the body.
  • 17.6 Goes back and pushes it through covers for a run. 3 from the over, a good one by Mehedi! 104/0
  • 17.5 Warner has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 17.4 This time Finch plays from the back foot and sends it to long on for one.
  • 17.3 Stays on the back foot and punches it down to long on for a run.
  • 17.2 Warner has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 17.1 Huge shout for an lbw! Not given by the umpire. No DRS taken either. That tells the appeal was more in hope. Flatter and fuller around leg, sliding down, Warner walks forward with the flick shot but fails to connect. The keeper and the bowler appeal but to no avail. Missing leg.
  • Drinks break. Steady beginning from Australia and now they are looking to up their scoring rate. Once again the Australian openers adopted a cautious approach up front and denied Bangladesh any wicket. Warner, though, got a life when he was on 10 and that will be already hurting the Asian side. Hard to predict from where the first breakthrough will come. Bangladesh should look to dry out the runs if the wickets are not coming otherwise they will be staring down to a massive total.
  • 16.6 Finch has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 101/0
  • 16.5 Short in length on off, pulled across the line without much timing to deep square leg for a run.
  • 16.4 Ouch, that would have hurt! Some extra bounce from a length on middle, shooting up off the surface, Warner tries working it around but gets hit on the bottom hand. Straightaway he takes his hand off in pain. Nothing serious though.
  • 16.3 Shortish and on middle, Warner eases it through square leg for a couple of runs. The century stand comes up! This pair continues to prosper.
  • 16.2 Back of a length ball on off, David rocks back and taps it down to point.
  • 16.1 Gets on the front foot to a full ball and pushes it to covers.
  • 15.6 Played to the point region by the batsman. No run to end a 12-run over. 98/0
  • 15.5 FOUR! Finch targets the longer part of the ground this time, hits into the breeze also and as a result it doesn't go all the way. Tossed up all around off, Aaron muscles it across the line and it falls just before the fence at wide long on. Mehedi is targeted at the moment.
  • 15.4 SIX! Finch picks the shorter side of the ground, goes with the spin and powers his slog sweep over square leg for a biggie. When he hits, they stay hit!
  • 15.3 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 15.2 Flighted and full on off, driven back to the bowler who didn't stop cleanly but no run taken.
  • 15.1 Identical to the last delivery, this time Warner gets bat on ball and works it in front of square leg for a run.
  • 15.1 Wide! Starts with a skidder down the leg side, Warner tries to flick but misses.
  • Mehedi Hasan into the attack now. Bangladesh need to break this partnership here. Can he be the man to give his skipper the first breakthrough?
  • 14.6 20th ODI fifty for David Warner! Shortish and on middle, Warner jumps on the back foot and glances it behind square leg for a run. Fine knock by David, he started slowly again but is now picking up the scoring rate. This partnership is 14 runs short of a century now. Good going for the defending champions! 86/0
  • 14.5 Good length delivery on middle and leg, David flicks it on the leg side but not in the gap.
  • Marcus Stoinis is seen going out for a net session. A possible promotion for him on the cards? Quite possible, let's see whether he gets it. He does open the batting for Melbourne Stars. The Aussies have kept the number 3 slot open so far with Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja rotated as per the need of the hour.
  • 14.4 Fractionally short in length on off, Aaron goes on his toes and gently tucks it in the gap at mid-wicket for a run.
  • 14.3 Fullish and on off, driven back to the bowler.
  • 14.2 Shortish and on off, punched from the crease to deep cover for a run.
  • 14.1 Good length ball on middle and leg, Warner defends it from the back foot. It probably takes the inside edge and deflects off his pads to square leg.
  • 13.6 Remains back footed this time and helps it through mid-wicket for one. 11 from the over, 24 in Shakib's first 3. 83/0
  • 13.5 Walks down the track and blocks it on the leg side.
  • 13.4 A bit of a leading edge this time. Warner tries to work it around but closes the face of his willow early. It doesn't carry to the bowler though.
  • 13.3 Shakib goes quick and flat this time, on off, Warner punches it to covers.
  • 13.2 SIX! This is the mirror image of Williamson's six last evening in the last over. Full and floated on off, turning back in, Warner goes down on one knee and smokes it over mid-wicket. 94m on the radar, that's a really big one from a short man.
  • 13.1 FOUR! Well played again by Warner. He dances down the track to take it on the full and crunches his drive through covers for a boundary.
  • 12.6 Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. One run added to the total. 19 runs in the last 3 overs, Australia are trying to up their scoring rate. 72/0
  • 12.5 Appeal for a catch! Width on offer outside off, Warner flashes and misses. Rahim collects the ball and gets ready to throw while the bowler is appealing. Nothing from the umpire. Nothing in the replays either.
  • 12.4 Misfield! Short in length on off, Warner pulls it across the line and the fielder inside the ring at mid-wicket misfields. It rolls behind and Shakib boots it out just before the rope at the last moment. Two added to the total.
  • 12.3 Another back foot shot, this time from the Australian skipper, and it hurries across the turf to deep cover for one.
  • 12.2 Back of a length delivery on middle and off, Warner sits on the back foot and punches it to sweeper cover for a run.
  • 12.1 Starts his spell with a touch short of a length ball on off, Warner steers it off his back foot but finds the point fielder.
  • Rubel Hossain is into the attack.
  • 11.6 Yet another single down the ground, towards long on again, and one more run has been added to the Australian score. 67/0
  • 11.5 Knocks a full ball down to long on and rotates the strike.
  • 11.4 Good fielding effort! Short in length and outside off, Warner cracks it square of the wicket on the off side and it races away. Sabbir chases it down from point and saves a run for his team.
  • 11.3 Mistimed shot! Extra loopy ball on this occasion, it lands full on middle and Finch tries to drive it through the line. But it skids on to take the inside edge and goes in the gap at mid-wicket for a run.
  • 11.2 Use of the feet this time by Warner and he eases a full ball down to long on for a run.
  • 11.1 Full and flighted on off, Warner pushes it back to the left of the bowler who runs across to make the stop.
  • 10.6 FOUR! Poor delivery and Finch makes full use of it. Mortaza serves a good length ball on leg, it's further angling down, Finch just helps it on its way to the fine leg fence. 60/0
  • Dark clouds are slowly building around the stadium. Let's hope they stay away.
  • 10.5 Sweet timing but straight to the fielder. A back foot punch by Finch but he fails to pierce the off side field.
  • 10.4 Sliding down the leg side, it's worked behind square leg for a single.
  • 10.3 Played to the point region by the batsman. No run.
  • 10.2 Slower off cutter on off, Finch moves back and tickles it in front of square leg for a single.
  • 10.1 Shorter length ball outside off, Warner camps back and slaps it to sweeper cover for a run.
  • Powerplay 2 time! Now maximum of 4 fielders can be placed outside the 30-yard circle till the 40th over.
  • 9.6 Fuller and flatter on middle, Finch keeps it out to mid on. 6 from Shakib's first over! Good start for Australia in Powerplay 1! 53/0
  • 9.5 Pushed to the cover region by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 9.4 Goes on the back foot and punches it towards extra cover for a run. Warner looks for another but then decides against it.
  • 9.3 FOUR! Cracking shot! Shakib lands a full delivery right in the slot for the batsman. Finch goes deep inside the crease and drills it down the ground for a boundary at long on. 50 comes up for Australia!
  • 9.2 Finch has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 9.1 Starts with a friendly short delivery outside off, Finch cuts it off his back foot but finds point.
  • First bowling change of the game. Spinner finally introduced into the attack. It will be the No.1 all-rounder and Bangla superstar Shakib Al Hasan who will end the first Powerplay. He has been their go-to man, can he break this opening stand.
  • 8.6 Fullish and on off, Finch drives it straight back and Mashrafe fails to stop it cleanly in his followthrough. He though takes the pace off the ball and it takes time in reaching mid off. The batsmen scamper across for a run in the meantime. 47/0
  • 8.5 Slower one, an off cutter landing on a length outside off, once again Aaron finds the cover fielder after playing it from the crease.

  • 7.6 Change of angle for The Fizz. He switches to 'round the wicket and bangs in a short ball around leg. Warner picks it and evades. 8 from the over! 44/0
  • 7.5 Too full in length and on off, Warner gets behind the line of the delivery and digs it out to mid off.
  • Some issue with the ball. Maybe it has lost its shape after getting a harsh treatment from Warner's bat. The umpires have called for the replacement.
  • 7.4 SIX! Warner gets his first biggie! He picks the short ball early, swivels on the back foot and fetches it from outside off. He then plays a controlled pull shot after that and sends it packing behind square leg for a maximum.
  • 7.3 Finch has driven it to mid-off. One run added to the total.
  • 7.2 Back of a length delivery outside off, Aaron is on the back foot as he punches it towards covers. Finds the fielder.
  • 7.1 Eases it down towards mid on where the fielder dives to his right to make the stop. Cannot prevent the single though.
  • 6.6 Slower short ball on off, Warner turns it behind square leg and takes a single. A decent going for Australia, so far. 36/0
  • 6.5 Shortish and on off, punched from the back foot to covers.
  • 6.4 FOUR! Shot! Excellent timing again from Warner. He doesn't try to hit it hard and just places his back foot punch through the gap at extra cover.

  • 6.1 A cutter from Mashrafe. Fuller and on off, Warner pushes at it after getting half-forward and it goes off the inner edge to short fine leg.

  • 5.5 A leg stump half-volley is the follow-up delivery to the shorter one, Warner nudges it fine down the leg side for one.
  • 5.4 Rahman bends his back on this occasion and digs in a short ball close to off stump. Warner watches the line closely and sways away at the last moment.
  • 5.3 Hangs on the back foot to a full delivery and pushes it to covers for a run.
  • 5.2 Sliding down the leg side, Warner fails to flick and is hit on the pads. It rolls in the gap on the leg side and they cross for a leg bye.
  • 5.1 Angling away from the batsman, Finch runs it down to third man and takes a run.
  • 4.6 Is that dropped? The backward point is saying he didn't pick it up. Hmm... Short in length and outside off, Warner reaches out for it and slaps it through the line. It's aerial and to the right of Sabbir, who reacts but fails to hang on. Early life for Warner. The batsmen take two. 27/0
  • 4.5 Shortish and outside off, Warner reaches out for it and tries to hit it through the line. But it takes the bottom half of his blade and rolls down to mid off.

  • 3.6 Short and wide outside off, Warner goes back and packs a punch through the line. But he fails to beat the diving cover-point fielder. 18/0
  • 3.5 FOUR! Easy pickings! Mustafizur drifts a full ball down the leg side, Warner neatly deflects it off his pads and sends it whistling to the fine leg fence.
  • 3.4 Very well bowled. Rahman brings in a length ball on middle and leg, Warner also does well to block it out on the leg side.
  • 3.3 Lands it on a fuller length just outside off, Warner takes a stride forward and pushes it gently to point.
  • 3.2 Pitches it up and in the line of the stumps, Finch flicks it off his pads to deep backward square leg for a run.
  • 3.2 Wide! Rahman loses his line on this occasion and slips a back of a length delivery down the leg side. Finch tries getting his bat behind the ball but fails.
  • 3.1 Angles across a fuller length ball on off, Finch covers his stumps and allows it through. That was bowled at a decent click, 140 kph to be precise.
  • 2.6 Half-shout for an lbw! Nothing from the umpire. A good length ball on off, angling down, Finch fails to flick and is hit on the pads. They cross for a leg bye as the umpire turns down the appeal. Missing leg in all likelihood. 12/0

  • 1.5 Stifled appeal for an lbw! The umpire remains still. Looks quite high and going down the leg side too. A touch short and on middle and leg, Warner fails to glance it away on the leg side.
  • 1.4 Shortish and on off, David is on the back foot as he plays it down to cover-point.
  • 1.3 Good length delivery just outside off, Warner allows it through to the keeper this time.
  • 1.2 FOUR! Timing and placement from Warner! The outfield is lightning fast and David has played it towards the shorter part of the stadium as well. Width on offer outside off, the southpaw goes on the back foot and nicely places his shot between the gap at point and cover-point. The fielders chase but the ball wins the race.
  • Who will bowl from this end? Spinner or pacer? Pacer it will be. Mustafizur Rahman to bowl from the other end with the second new ball.

  • 0.6 Forces a length ball towards covers where Shakib makes a good diving stop. 5 from the first over! 5/0

  • We're minutes away from getting underway. Currently, the players from both sides are out in the centre for their respective national anthems.
  • Bangladesh (Playing XI) - Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(WK), Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman (IN FOR MOSADDEK HOSSAIN), Mehedi Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza(C), Rubel Hossain (IN FOR MOHAMMED SAIFUDDIN), Mustafizur Rahman.
  • Australia (Playing XI) - David Warner, Aaron Finch(C), Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis (IN FOR SHAUN MARSH), Alex Carey(WK), Nathan Coulter-Nile (IN FOR JASON BEHRENDORFF), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa (IN FOR KANE RICHARDSON).
  • Bangladesh skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza says they would have batted first as well but he reckons the outfield is heavy right now so one cannot be sure. Informs they have chased well so he is positive. Tells the boys are very confident especially after the last game and they are looking forward for this one. Informs Mohammad Saifuddin has back spasm so he is out and Mosaddek Hossain is out as well. Rubel Hossain and Sabbir Rahman replace them. Tells that they need to pick early wickets as Australia have a good team and he hopes to continue how they bowled early in the previous game.
  • Australia skipper, Aaron Finch says they are batting first as it looks a good surface. Tells that they have played good cricket in patches but have not been able to continue it for full 100 overs. On his team changes, Finch informs there are three changes in his side as Coulter-Nile, Zampa and Stoinis come in and Richardson, Behrendorff and Shaun Marsh miss out. Mentions that picking wickets in the middle overs are also very important.
  • Toss - We have captains of both sides along with the match referee all in readiness for the toss. The Australian skipper Aaron Finch has the coin in his hand. Bangladesh skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza calls Heads but it turns out to be the wrong call. AUSTRALIA OPT TO BAT FIRST!
  • Pitch report - Harsha Bhogle and Mel Jones are the pitch analysts for the game. Harsha says it is a lovely day and the skies are clear. He informs while bowling from the Radcliffe End the boundaries straight are slightly bigger but on the leg side, they are small. It is similar from the other end as well. Mel Jones from the other end looks at the pitch and says there is a slight tinge of grass which we have hardly seen in this tournament. She informs that there are cracks on the pitch indicating that it is a dry surface underneath and she feels it will be interesting to see how much assistance the spinners will get off the deck. Jones suggests that the change in pace will be a key factor on this surface.
  • Hello and welcome to Match 26 of the ICC World Cup 2019. After a nail-biter last game, we now move from Manchester to Nottingham. And we have another top class contest lined up. Top 4 hopefuls, Bangladesh take on Australia in a crunch contest. The Kangaroos have lost just one game so far in this edition and a win here for the Aaron Finch-led side will see them get even closer to book their place in the semi-final. Bangladesh, on the other hand, chased down one of the highest totals in World Cups quite convincingly against West Indies, all thanks to the Bangla Superstar, Shakib-Al-Hasan. Mashrafe Mortaza will be hoping that Shakib continues his magnificent run and the others too join the party. Will Bangladesh take down another giant in Australia or will the Aussies once again show why they are one of the favourites? We have another spectacle ready for you. Stay tuned as the toss is not far away.

Australia Vs Bangladesh Live Score (ODI) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • Number 10 for the Aussies in terms of points! They get back their pole position. Still, no one is qualified for the semis officially, while no one is out. On Wednesday, New Zealand topped the table. Thursday, it was done by the Aussies. Come Friday, England will look to win the musical chairs round by beating Sri Lanka. Do we have a surprise in store? Join us on June 21, 2019 at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT) at Headingley, Leeds. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • Victorious Australian captain, Aaron Finch, is not quite fussed about being nervous during the Mahmudullah-Rahim stand and says that there is plenty of experience in the Aussie bowling to finish things off. On his partnership with Warner, Finch says that both of them are pretty much experienced and know how to go about things. Admits that they missed Stoinis a lot in the last 2 games and today he was welcome. On the possibility of 2 spinners in the side, Finch says that it depends on the track and also about the balance of the side. Admits that the fielding was very sloppy today. With one leg almost in the semi-final, Aaron says that the Aussies would like to have one more win and consolidate that spot. On his own batting form, Finch says that as an opening batsman, once you get a couple of boundaries, you are on your way to getting confidence.
  • Bangladesh skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza, says that had the target been 40 runs lesser, the mindset of the Bangladesh batsmen would have been different. Praises his batters though and credits the Aussies for piling on a huge total. On the current squad, Mash says that they have the best team that they can possibly put together. On the run chase, Mortaza says that big partnerships were needed but even then, admits that 381 was a bit too much. Sadly says that he can only focus on winning his own games and hoping that some other teams lose above Bangladesh.
  • DAVID WARNER HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. On his 16th ODI hundred, being par with Adam Gilchrist, Warner says that it is a great achievement but is happier with the 2 points. On his and Finch's newly found approach, David says that it is all about respecting the new balls and then opening up and target the secondary bowlers. Adds that one needs to adapt to the conditions and then play according to the situation. On the pitch, Warner says that the pitch was a tad slow and a grind for the bowlers. Ends the conversation with a smile, saying that he will continue trying his best to get the big scores.
  • Not a great reading for the Aussie bowlers. This was a game where they had plenty of cushion with the score reading 381 but barring Starc, no one bowled well. On a track which had nothing for the bowlers, everyone suffered, not quite doing that well. A worrying sign, with the business end approaching. Australia have 10 points from 5 wins but none of those 5 have quite seen a complete performance yet. Please stay tuned for the presentation...
  • The brothers-in-law, Rahim and Mahmudullah then decided to have some fun. They teed off, punishing all the Aussie bowlers and added 127 for the 5th wicket but in the end, the task was too much to do. Rahim got to his century but today, when Shakib was needed to score big, could not quite get a big one.
  • When a team is chasing 382, it needs a solid and a quickfire opening stand. Bangladesh could not get that. Sarkar was dismissed early and after that, even though Shakib and Tamim revived the innings, that stand seemed a bit slow and was always behind the 8-ball. The acceleration never really came till Liton Das joined forces with Mushfiqur Rahim.
  • Comprehensive win for Australia but Bangladesh fought hard. Had the target been around 350, they might have very well chased it. The Aussies might have ironed out their batting issues but the bowling still needs a lot of working over.
  • 49.6 OUT! Caught. A wicket to end the game. A short ball, outside off, Mortaza pulls it away but it is only as long as deep mid-wicket. Glenn Maxwell runs to his right and completes the formalities. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 48 RUNS.
  • 49.5 A low full toss outside off, flicked towards mid-wicket for a run.
  • 49.4 Full and on the off stump, pushed towards point for a run.

  • 49.2 Outside off, a wild heave but a miss.
  • 49.1 On middle, tucked to the leg side for a single.
  • 48.6 HUNDRED FOR RAHIM! Well played. What a knock. Fighting hard with the chips down. Gets there with a gentle push through the covers. Starc is done - 10-0-55-2. 326/7
  • 48.5 Around off, solidly defended.
  • 99...Mushfiqur. No field changes from Finch. Shouldn't the fielders come in?
  • 48.4 A terrific yorker, Mortaza somehow gets his bat down in time and ekes out a thick outside edge to third man for one.
  • 48.3 99. Full and on middle, flicked through mid-wicket for a run.
  • In comes the skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza, for the final rites. He will be at the non-striker's end as the batsmen crossed.
  • 48.2 OUT! Caught. Starc gets another tail-ender. This is a quick one, 145 kph, in line of the stumps, Mehedi backs away to the leg side and looks to chip this over the on side but only mistimes it straight to mid on. Easy catch for David Warner and Starc has his second.
  • 48.1 Yorker on the stumps, dug out towards point for a single. Moves to 98.
  • 47.6 Yorker on off, squeezed behind point for a single to keep the strike. 322/6
  • 47.5 A slower bouncer, outside off, MR looks to play the upper cut but misses.
  • 47.4 FOUR! A bit lucky, for Rahim and he will take that. A hit away from a century now. Outside off, Mushfiqur has a poke at it but gets a thick outside edge, wide of Carey to the third man fence.
  • 47.3 Full and around off, Rahim works it through square leg, Mitchell Starc gives it a good chase from fine leg and dives, stopping the ball cleanly. Two runs taken.
  • 47.2 FOUR! Just over! Full and outside off, Rahim backs away and hits it hard. Just about clears a leaping Aaron Finch at mid off. Moves to 90. That is the only point of interest left in this game now.
  • 47.1 Short and outside off, slapped through point for a single.
  • Marcus Stoinis to bowl the 48th over. 6-0-35-1 so far.
  • 46.6 Excellent over. Just 6 off this one. Back of a length on off, Mehedi hits it over the bowler's head and gets just a single. 310/6
  • 46.5 Full on middle and leg, Mehedi strokes it towards mid on. Mushfiqur wanted a single but Hasan says no. Warner has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Replays shows had he hit it would not have made a difference as Rahim was in.
  • 46.4 Back of a length ball outside off, Mehedi lofts it over point and gets a couple.
  • 46.3 Very full outside off, Mehedi guides it to backward point for a single.

  • 45.5 Mehedi does well to deal with the hat-trick ball. Good length ball on middle, Mehedi tucks it towards mid-wicket and gets one.
  • Mehedi Hasan comes out to face the hat-trick ball.
  • 45.4 OUT! Two in two. Coulter-Nile on a hat-trick now. Good length ball outside off, and for some reason Sabbir was trying to run it down towards third man. The required run-rate is well over 12 but he still goes for this shot. He ends up getting an inside edge which goes onto hit the stumps. In a matter of two balls all the Bangladeshi hearts are broken.
  • Sabbir Rahman walks in at number 7, replacing Mahmudullah. All is not lost yet. One big over, in the 20s, can still even this contest.
  • 45.3 OUT! Coulter-Nile gives Australia the big breakthrough and maybe that is the final nail in the coffin for Bangladesh in this chase. Coulter-Nile bangs it in short, Mahmudullah goes for the pull. It makes sweet sound off the bat but he does not time it well and it goes straight to Cummins at deep mid-wicket. The crowd is dejected. Mahmudullah did give some hope but could not quite fulfill the needs. End of a magnificent innings though.
  • 45.2 In the air but safe. Good length ball outside off, Mahmudullah looks to hit it over long on. It does not come off the middle. It goes towards long on. The ball falls short of Starc who lost it in the sun as he dived but was nowhere close.

  • 44.4 Good length balll on off, Mushfiqur runs it down to third man for one. Singles won't hurt Australia.
  • 44.3 Fuller on off, Mahmudullah plays a good looking loft shot over covers. There is a man in the deep so just one.
  • 44.2 In the air...but short. Cummins bangs it in short. Rahim does not time his pull. It works in his favour as it falls short of Coulter-Nile at deep mid-wicket. A run taken.
  • 44.1 Good length ball on middle, Mahmudullah comes down the track and hits it towards mid-wicket. There is a man in the deep there so just a single.
  • 43.6 Mahmudullah will keep the strike. On the pads, Mahmudullah flicks it to the on side and gets a single. 93 needed off the last 6 overs. 289/4
  • 43.5 FOUR! This is better for Bangladesh. A low full toss on middle, Nathan Coulter-Nile expects Mahmudullah to go straight but he hits it through mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 43.4 FOUR! Fifty for Mahmudullah! He is going to fight till the end here. Full outside off, Mahmudullah squeezes it past point for a boundary to bring up his 21st ODI fifty.
  • 43.3 Short on off, Rahim pulls it to deep mid-wicket and gets just a solitary run. Bangladesh need sixes and fours here.

  • 42.5 WIDE! Another one in this over. Cummins is all over the place in this over. Yorker outside off. It is on the wrong side of the tramline and Kettleborough has to stretch out his arms. 100-run stand comes up between the two.
  • 42.4 Full again on middle, this time Rahim flicks it towards deep mid-wicket. Gets just a single.

  • 42.2 Good length ball on off, Mushfiqur strokes it towards cover and gets to the other end.
  • 42.2 WIDE! This time bowls it outside the tramline on the off side and Rahim misses his cut. Wide given by the umpire.
  • 42.2 WIDE AND FOUR! Slower bouncer bounces too high. Rahim goes after it but misses. The ball pitches in front of Carey and then spins away from him. He misses it and the ball goes to the fine leg fence.
  • 42.1 Slower ball on middle, Mahmudullah turns it towards square leg and gets a single.
  • Pat Cummins is back on. 8-1-41-0 so far.

Zampa appeals, umpire Gough thinks for a while and then raises his finger! Das has a look at Rahim, then walks over for a chat. Rahim smiles and then agrees for the review. Replays show that there was no inside edge with the bat being behind the pad. Ball Tracker shows it to be clipping the leg stump. So Bangladesh do not lose a review but lose Das.
  • Is that the first wicket for Zampa? Liton Das has been adjudged leg before. He has a long chat with Rahim and after a wry smile, they decide to refer it upstairs. No inside edge. Is this sliding down? No. Umpire's call it is, clipping leg stump.

  • 24.3 On the pads, Liton flicks it to deep mid-wicket and gets a single.
  • The physio is out in the middle having a check on Liton. He looks to be fine but you cannot take any risk with such incidents. He will need a new helmet and the physio is having a concussion test on him.
  • 24.2 Nasty! Bouncer on middle, Liton looks to duck but he is late and the ball rattles his helmet. Starc has a check on Liton and Das gives him a thumbs up, indicating he is alright.

  • 24.1 OUT! Chopped on. Tamim does not convert his fifty and Bangladesh in deep waters here. Good length ball outside off, Tamim looks to guide it down towards third man but he ends up getting an inside edge as his feet went nowhere near the ball. The ball goes onto hit the leg pole. Starc is having fun, he keeps his hand on his mouth and smiles looking at Tamim. Maybe even he knows it was not a ball which deserved a wicket. He will take it though as he now becomes the highest wicket-taker in this World Cup.

  • 23.1 Zampa bowls a flatter one this time, outside off. Rahim cuts it towards covers for a single.

  • 21.5 SIX! Up and over! Finally it arrives. The first six in a run chase of 382. A full toss onto the leg stump, Rahim races down the track and thrashes into the stands at long on. Easy pickings for Rahim and much-needed one for Bangladesh.
  • 21.4 Full and outside off, driven towards long off for a run.
  • 21.3 A yorker length delivery onto off, Rahim drives it back to the bowler but wait, the ball goes between Zampa's legs and the batsmen take a single. Lethargic.

  • 21.1 A bit short and quick, Tamim goes on the back foot and punches it to the mid off fielder. A single taken.

  • 20.5 Full on middle, Mushfiqur flicks it to deep mid-wicket and gets to the other end.
  • 20.4 FIFTY FOR TAMIM! His first fifty in this World Cup. Good length ball outside off, Tamim taps it down to third man and gets a single to bring up his 47th ODI fifty. He holds the key here in this chase. He needs to convert this into a daddy hundred if Bangladesh wants to keep their hopes alive in this tournament.
  • 20.3 FOUR! Nicely pulled! Tamim moves to 49! Slower bouncer on the body, Tamim pulls it over mid-wicket and gets a boundary.
  • 20.2 Full again on middle and leg, Tamim pushes it back to the bowler.
  • 20.1 Full on middle, Mushfiqur flicks it to deep mid-wicket and gets a single.
  • 19.6 Full and outside middle, sweeps this through fine leg for a run. 112/2
  • 19.5 Zampa bowls a fuller length, Rahim comes forward and plays a solid defense, ball goes rolling back to the bowler.
  • 19.4 Full and outside off, Rahim looks to defend but gets a bottom edge which is stopped by Carey on the bounce.
  • 19.3 IN THE AIR, SAFE! Full and outside off, Rahim pushes this with a loose bottom hand and it almost goes back to the bowler. Lands just short.
  • 19.2 FOUR! Fine shot. Bangladesh need to attack Zampa and not let him settle. Full and around off, Rahim gets down, brings out his reverse sweep and connects it really well to send it over short third man.
  • 19.1 Again a tossed delivery onto leg, Rahim goes for a paddle and works it towards fine leg to grab a pair.
  • 18.6 Good length ball on middle, Rahim flicks it to square leg and gets a single. Brilliant over from Stoinis. Just shows how critical he is for this side. He gives away just three runs and gets the prized scalp of Shakib Al Hasan. 105/2
  • 18.5 On the pads, Iqbal flicks it to the on side and gets a single.
  • 18.4 On the stumps, Tamim defends it with a straight bat.
  • 18.3 On the pads, Mushfiqur turns it behind square on the leg side and takes a single.
  • 18.2 Good length ball on middle, Mushfiqur defends it off the front foot.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim walks out to bat next. Bangladesh need a world class innings from him today.
  • 18.1 OUT! The slower one does the trick and the Bangla superstar is out of here. It is on middle and leg, Shakib looks to flick but gets deceived by the lack of pace on it. He ends up chipping his flick which goes straight to the man at mid off. You just cannot keep Warner out of this game. He is the one stationed out there, he gets down and takes a good catch. Body blow this for Bangladesh. This is a tough ask and without Shakib this looks close to impossible. Shakib will be disappointed with this dismissal. It was not the best of deliveries and he might feel he could have done better.
  • 17.6 Tossed delivery onto the leg stump, much fuller this time, batsman works this towards square leg for a single to end the over. 102/1
  • 17.5 Full and outside leg, flicked through mid-wicket for one more.
  • 17.4 Shorter one and onto the pads, Shakib flicks it towards square leg and grabs a single.
  • 17.3 A touch short, the wrong 'un again, Tamim walks across and works it through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 17.2 Around middle, watchfully defended.
  • 17.1 Googly to start his day, a bit quicker, Tamim goes for the defence and is beaten.
  • Adam Zampa is brought on to bowl now.
  • DRINKS BREAK. A look at the scorecard and it might suggest that Bangladesh are nowhere in this run chase. They need 284 from 198 balls at 8.6 an over and one may think, impossible. But consider this - Australia were 101/0 at this stage. So, nothing much to choose between the two. Bangladesh just have to figure out how to counter Usman Khawaja's attack. There is nothing in the pitch, the ball is not moving and the ground is way too small. Decent partnerships will keep them in the hunt and that one mad knock can probably cause the unthinkable.
  • 16.6 Single to end the over. Back of a length on off, Tamim pulls it to deep mid-wicket and keeps the strike. 98/1
  • 16.5 Length ball on off, Shakib milks it down to long off for one.
  • 16.4 Good length ball on the pads, Tamim flicks it to square leg and takes a single.
  • 16.3 Once again on the stumps, Tamim blocks it.
  • 16.2 Almost another run out. Good length ball on off, Tamim defends it and looks for a quick single. Shakib comes but then Tamim sends him back as he slips in his stride out. Smith gets to the ball and has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. It would have been close had Steve hit the target but I feel that Shakib would have been in.
  • 16.1 FOUR! Cut away! Stoinis bowls it wide outside off, Tamim cuts it past of the diving Maxwell at point for a boundary. Good start to over this for Bangladesh.
  • 15.6 Once again Nathan bowls it on the body, Tamim flicks it to deep mid-wicket and keeps the strike. 91/1
  • 15.5 Bouncer! It is away from the body so Shakib pulls it to deep mid-wicket and gets to the other end.
  • 15.4 On middle and leg, Tamim flicks it to deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 15.3 Outside off on a length, Shakib guides it down to third man for a run.
  • 15.2 On the pads, Tamim flicks it to square leg and gets a single.
  • 15.1 Coulter-Nile bangs it in short. Tamim plays a very controlled pull wide of deep mid-wicket and gets a couple.
  • By the way, just missed that Marcus Stoinis was called into the attack. Nothing special about that over but Finch will be happy that he has got one extra bowling option. His absence has really hurt the Aussies in the bowling department and his 5-6 overs can take some pressure off the regular bowlers.
  • 14.6 Down the leg side, helped through fine leg for one more. 84/1
  • 14.5 Full and around middle, driven straight back down the ground for a run.
  • 14.4 Full and around middle, sensibly flicked through mid-wicket for another single.
  • 14.3 Around middle, tucked through square leg for one more.
  • 14.2 Dropped short, Tamim launches into the pull but the ball rises high on him and he mistimes it in the air, but wide of mid on. A single taken.
  • 14.1 Around off, tapped to the off side for a quick single.
  • 13.6 A full toss on the pads, whipped through mid-wicket for one. 78/1
  • 13.5 Around middle, defended back to the bowler.
  • 13.4 A short ball again, around middle and leg, TI goes for the hook but is cramped for room. The ball takes the inside edge and goes fine down the leg side. A quick run taken.
  • 13.3 A bouncer, on middle, Tamim ducks. It bounces way too high and Iqbal looks at the square leg umpire for the wide signal but it does not come.
  • 13.2 Outside off, played through point for a single.
  • 13.1 Around off, solidly defended.
  • 12.6 On the pads again, Shakib flicks it towards square leg and gets a single. 75/1
  • 12.5 This time flicks it wide of mid-wicket and gets a couple. It also brings up the 50-run stand between the two.
  • 12.4 On the pads, Shakib flicks it to the man at mid-wicket.
  • 12.3 FOUR! Two in two and this is even better. Tossed up on middle, Shakib lofts it over the bowler's head and scores another boundary.
  • 12.2 FOUR! Very well played. Flighted on off, Shakib comes down the track and chips it wide of long on. Nathan Coulter-Nile runs to his right to stop it but fails in his attempt to do so.
  • 12.1 Flighted around off, Tamim plays it towards point and takes a single.
  • 11.6 Single to end the over. Back of a length ball on off, Tamim defends it with soft hands and takes a run. 63/1
  • 11.5 Outside off on a length, Shakib punches it through covers for one.
  • 11.4 Length ball on off, Tamim looks to play it on the off side but gets an inside edge. The ball goes down the leg side and they take a single.
  • 11.3 Good length ball around off, Tamim looks to defend but does so off the upper half of the bat. The ball bounces down the ground but on the side of the stumps.
  • 11.2 Short again, this time Shakib pulls it towards mid-wicket and gets a single.
  • 11.1 BOUNCER! Shakib ducks under it and lets it carry to the keeper.
  • 10.6 Outside off, Iqbal drives it to the man at point. 59/1
  • 10.5 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 10.4 On the pads, Shakib flicks it to mid-wicket and takes one.
  • 10.3 In the air but safe. Outside off, Shakib looks to hit it over covers but gets an outside edge which goes over point and they take a couple.
  • 10.2 Short outside off, Shakib drives it through covers and takes a couple. Cummins in the deep cleans it up. He slips but no damage done.
  • 10.1 Good running. Tossed up on the pads, Tamim defends it towards the on side and takes a quick single.
  • Powerplay 2 signalled. Now 4 fielders can be placed outside the 30-yard circle till the 40th over. As Australia have always shown in this tournament, as soon as Powerplay 1 is done, they introduce a spinner. This time, they are not introducing, as Glenn Maxwell has already bowled an over before. Here he comes again.
  • 9.6 Short again, Shakib pulls it to short mid-wicket. That ends Powerplay 1, with Bangladesh making 53/1. Australia were 53/0 at this stage. 53/1
  • 9.5 FOUR! Slower ball gone wrong. Full on off, Shakib drives it magnificently past mid off and the ball races away to the fence. This man is in some kind of form.
  • 9.4 Short now. Shakib pulls it to mid-wicket off the upper half of his bat.
  • 9.3 Yorker! It is on off, Shakib does well to get his bat down in time.
  • 9.2 Good length ball on off, Shakib punches it to cover.
  • 9.1 Good length ball around off, Shakib pushes it to the man at cover.
  • 8.6 Stifled appeal turned down. Good length ball pitching outside leg, Shakib looks to flick but it goes off his pad towards the fine leg region and they take a single 49/1
  • 8.5 FOUR! Smashed! Outside off on a length. Shakib the form that he is in, will take the width on offer with both hands and smashes his cut over point for a boundary.
  • 8.4 Full on off, Shakib drives it through mid off and gets a couple.
  • 8.3 Outside off, Iqbal looks to cut but it goes off the outside edge towards third man for a single.
  • 8.2 This time it is full, and Iqbal defends it off the front foot.
  • 8.1 On a length on off, Iqbal punches it to the man at cover.
  • 7.6 Short ball on middle and leg, Tamim pulls it towards mid on. 41/1
  • 7.5 SAFE! Waste of a review. It looked to be pitching outside leg and that was the issue. Good length ball around leg, Shakib looks to flick but misses. The Australian players put in an appeal. The umpire though turns it down. Finch has a word with the keeper, NCN was not too convinced but Carey gives the green light for the review. They take it upstairs, Ultra Edge shows no inside edge. Ball Tracker later shows the ball was pitching outside leg.
  • Review time! Coulter-Nile and Carey reckon that Shakib is plumb in front. Looks to be pitched outside leg though. A gamble by Finch and he takes it. Could be a big wicket if Shakib is dismissed. Well, Ball Tracker shows it to be pitching outside leg. Matter over.
  • 7.4 Outside off on a length, Tamim shuffles across and taps it down to third man. Maxwell moves to his right and looks to have a shy even before getting a grip of the ball. He misses and then slips later on. Allows them to take an easy single.
  • 7.3 Good length ball on middle, Tamim looks to flick but gets an inside edge onto his pads. There was a stifled appeal but the umpire is not interested at all.
  • 7.2 On top of off, Tamim defends it back to the bowler.
  • 7.1 Good length ball on off now, Shakib taps it towards deep point and gets a single.
  • 7.1 WIDE! Starts with a wide down the leg side. Shakib leaves it alone and it has been wided.
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile into the attack. 4 bowlers already used by Finch inside Powerplay 1.
  • 6.6 SHOT! Very well played this. Length ball outside off, Tamim guides it past the diving point fielder. Zampa from third man cleans it up as the batsmen take two. 38/1
  • 6.5 Bouncer! It is around the body, Tamim sits under it. He has had issues with the short ball in the past.
  • 6.4 Good length ball on off, Tamim punches it to cover.
  • 6.3 In the air but safe. Full outside off, Tamim looks to play it on the on side but it goes off the upper half of his bat. It is short of mid on so no worry there.
  • 6.2 Full and around middle, watchfully defended.
  • 6.1 FOUR! Loose start. Full and on the pads, Tamim flicks it through mid-wicket and gets a boundary!
  • Change of ends for Cummins.
  • 5.6 Outside off, Tamim guides it down to the right of short third man. Starc there dives to that side and saves a certain boundary. Only a single taken. 32/1
  • 5.5 OUCH! That must have hurt. Flighted on off, Tamim pushes it to cover and looks for a quick single but he is sent back. The fielder gets to the ball and throws it to the keeper. The ball hits Tamim on his right calf and he slips down. The Aussies get around him and just try to cheer him up.
  • 5.4 Flighted on off, Shakib milks it down towards cover and takes a single.
  • 5.3 Good running. On off, Tamim pushes it towards cover and takes a quick single.
  • 5.2 Floated on off, Tamim defends it off the front foot.
  • 5.1 FOUR! Not the welcome Maxwell would have been looking for. Tossed up on off, Tamim gets on the front foot and creams it through covers for a boundary.
  • Spin inside Powerplay 1. It is going to be Glenn Maxwell.
  • 4.6 A bouncer on middle, Shakib ducks. 25/1
  • 4.5 On middle and leg, tucked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 4.4 A bouncer on middle, Tamim is on his back side as he looks to duck.
  • 4.3 Around off, pushed to the off side for a single. The throw is a wild one, going towards long off and Shakib wants the second but Tamim has backed up too far and hence the run is cancelled.
  • 4.2 That goes through everything! On a length outside off, cutting back in sharply, Shakib looks to defend but the ball comes back in a long way, cuts him into half and just misses the off stump on height!
  • 4.1 Full on middle, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 3.6 Bouncer to end the over! Tamim sits under it. 23/1
  • Shakib Al Hasan walks out at number 3. It was his heroics in the last game that saw Bangladesh chase down the 300-plus total with ease. The ask is even bigger this time and he will have to be the savior once again.
  • 3.5 OUT! Disaster, Disaster! This is just school boy stuff. No communication at all. Good length ball on middle, Tamim flicks it towards mid on and looks for a single. He comes halfway down the track but Sarkar sends him back. And for some reason after sending his partner back Sarkar goes to the keeper's end. Finch slides to his right and stops the ball. Finch shows his alertness and after deciding to throw it at the keeper's end he waits and scores a direct hit at the bowler's end. Sarkar is in middle of nowhere and has to walk back. This is just the kind of start you don't want while chasing a mammoth total.
  • 3.4 Bouncer! Tamim ducks under it.
  • 3.3 On off, Iqbal blocks it off the back foot.
  • 3.2 FOUR BYES! The ball swings and dips but after it goes past the stumps. You don't want that kind of a swing, especially if you are a keeper. Good length ball outside off, Iqbal looks to defend but misses. The ball moves away and Carey behind misses it due to the movement.
  • 3.1 Good length ball on off, Iqbal pushes it to cover.
  • 2.6 Better this. Good length ball outside off, Sarkar looks to cut but misses. 10 from the over, Bangladesh are on the march. 19/0
  • 2.5 FOUR! This is an even worse ball than the previous one. Full toss on the pads, Sarkar flicks it down the fine leg region. Cummins runs to his left and gets to the ball but he slips and the ball deflects off him to the fence.
  • 2.4 FOUR! Poor ball this from Starc. He gets no swing and he bowls it on the pads. Sarkar just uses the pace of the ball and flicks it over square leg. The outfield is quick and he gets a boundary.
  • 2.3 On middle and leg and coming in with the angle. Tamim turns it towards square leg and gets a single.
  • 2.2 Good length ball on off, Tamim pushes it to mid off.
  • 2.1 Good length ball which comes in with the angle. It is on the pads, Sarkar looks to flick but misses. The ball goes down to the fine leg region and they take a leg bye.
  • 1.6 Dot to finish the over. Once again it is on a length, Tamim punches it to cover-point to see off the over. 9/0
  • 1.5 Follows it up with a punch to cover.
  • 1.4 FOUR! First one of the innings and what a handsome looking stroke this is. Cummins bowls it too full on off, Tamim just strides out his front foot and drives it with class through mid off for a boundary.
  • 1.3 Length ball on off, Tamim defends it off the back foot.
  • 1.2 In the air...but safe. Good length ball outside off, Sarkar checks his shot and ends up chipping it wide of mid off. Warner slips there to his right and looks to block the ball from hitting his face. In an attempt to do so, he stops the ball as well, that too, with his wrong hand, the left. so just a single. In the end it is a good effort from David. Everyone is smiles. Cummins applauds the effort.
  • 1.1 No swing for Cummins either. Full on off, Sarkar pushes it to mid off.
  • Pat Cummins to bowl from the other end with the second new ball.
  • 0.6 Good length ball on off, Iqbal defends it to the man at cover. 4/0
  • 0.5 Sarkar is off the mark. Good length ball angling away from the batsman slightly, Soumya looks to defend but gets an outside edge which goes to third man. Sarkar takes a single.
  • 0.4 Outside off on a length, Sarkar plays it to the man at point.
  • 0.3 The chase is off the mark. Good length ball outside off, Tamim stays tall and punches it between mid off and cover. Warner at mid off slips but Stoinis from cover runs behind the ball and pulls it before the ropes. 3 taken by the batsmen.
  • 0.2 Full on middle and off, Iqbal blocks it off the front foot.
  • 0.1 Starts with a good length ball on middle, Tamim jumps and tucks it to mid-wicket. Absolutely no movement there.
  • We are back for the chase! The Australian players are out and going to their respective position in the field. Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar walk out to start this daunting chase. The first new ball is in the hands of Mitchell Starc. He will start the proceedings. He has two slips in place to begin. Also, it is drizzling.
