That's it from us for our live coverage of Australia vs Bangladesh. A tight match but pretty low on quality overall it must be said. Any which way, this makes the group very interesting like we saw. 

More from us tomorrow, do join us for the live coverage of the Indian women taking on England

23:06 (IST)

This is  how Group 2 looks like. Like we said after the Pakistan win, India are still not out of the woods. Both Aus and Pak ahead of India now

23:03 (IST)

Adam Zampa is named MoTM for his figures of 3-23

23:00 (IST)

Well, not so 'thrilling' as much as both teams telling each other they don't want to win this easily.....

22:56 (IST)

That's it, it's all over! Faulkner, the finisher, pushes Australia past the line. Sajib has been poor tonight and bowls a  rank short ball that is pushed past cover for four. Bangladesh have only themselves to blame for a sloppy effort on the field.

22:53 (IST)

Shakib, you beauty! What an over. Two wickets but is it all a bit too late? First he gets Maxwell stumped as he goes for one big shot too many. Then off the last ball, Hastings slogs one straight to cow corner.

Shakib finishes with figures of 4-0-27-3, fighting effort

After 18 overs, Australia 152/7 ( James Faulkner 1)

22:50 (IST)

After 17 overs, Australia 148/5 ( Glenn Maxwell 26 , James Faulkner 0)

Oh Mustafizur, what have you done! Two fast-ish balls in that over and Maxwell pumps both past the boundary line for two big sixes. First a glance over fine leg, and then a straight bat drive over long on. 

Bangladesh have dug their own hole today

Preview: Bangaldesh frustrated ahead of Australia clash

Bengaluru: The International Cricket Council's (ICC) ban on bowlers Taskin Ahmed and Arafat Sunny for illegal actions in the middle of the World T20 campaign has diminished the Bangladesh team's spirits.

They are scheduled to take on Australia in their second Super 10 match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Monday, reports bdnews24.com.

The actions of the bowlers were questioned in the first-round match against the Netherlands on March 9. Sunny went through the assessment in Chennai on March 12 and Taskin on March 15. The ICC announced the results on Saturday.

The team was particularly frustrated about the suspension of Taskin, who is an important cog in their pace wheel.

"We are very upset with the decision. It is very disappointing. We still believe that Taskin is alright. I don’t know the system. Playing back-to-back matches and then be tested," Mashrafe said on Sunday.

"Again, we can’t do anything at the moment. We have to go through the process. The team is very upset."

Losing two of his key bowlers, Mashrafe insisted that things would not be the same in the team.

"If two of your boys in the family are in a pickle, you won't be able to do anything properly - you won't get the same enthusiasm. Our mental state is not like before any more, you can see it clearly," the captain said.

"Taskin and Sunny are obviously disappointed. But the whole team is behind them. At the moment, it is very difficult to tell them that everything will be alright.

"As a group, the coaching staff and players are helping them cope with it. All that we can wish and pray is they come out stronger and fight it out - come back and play for Bangladesh."

Mashrafe claimed the timing of the ICC verdict made things tougher for the team.

"The shock came at such a time when it is difficult for us to manage. If we got the two replacement players a couple of days ago, we could've managed it."

The 32-year-old skipper said the players would still try to lift their spirits and face Australia with resolve.

"So we can't just keep thinking about all those things. We all know that (M. Chinnaswamy) wicket is a high-scoring strip, so we have to work as a unit to be successful.

"I know the people of Bangladesh are on our side and would still be there in more difficult situations. We will also try so that our performance meets their expectations. But it is definitely a difficult task."
