Day 22 at the World Cup: Bangladesh went down to defending champions Australia by 48 runs on Thursday after David Warner's 166-run knock guided them to a commendable 381/5 in their 50 overs. Apart from Warner, Usman Khawaja scored a 72-ball 89, while Glenn Maxwell's 10-ball 32 provided the late impetus.
In reply, Bangladesh rode on Mushfiqur Rahim's unbeaten 102 to score 338/8 in their allotted 50 overs in a match that ultimately had the most number of aggregate runs scored in World Cup history.
On the World Cup Daily, Geoff Lemon and Adam Collins are following the Cup all around England and Wales. Their long weekly podcast The Final Word has been going for five years, but now it has changed into a short daily form for cricket’s biggest tournament.
Every day, The Final Word will team up with Firstpost to bring you a new episode from wherever Geoff and Adam are on the road. On trains and buses, in pubs, on the street, in parks, on barges floating down rivers, and anywhere else that they might end up.
They are also watching an awful lot of cricket, and can summarise all the matches that you didn’t have time to see, or can bring you into the discussion about the ones you did watch.
They will nominate their player of the day, who will probably not be the official man of the match, and will pick one moment or person or incident to go into The Final Word Hall of Fame, with an overall winner to come at the end of the tournament.
Tune in to The Final Word World Cup Daily tomorrow for Day 23.
