Video and statistics highlight from Australia v Bangladesh match

For the first time in this World Cup, Finch won the toss, and without giving a second thought, decided to bat first. The pitch, a dream to bat on, produced 381 runs for Australia.

Australia’s day at the Trent Bridge, a comfortable win, at top of the points table, Warner and Starc lead in batting and bowling chart. What else Australian fans want from the team at this stage of the tournament.

For the first time in this World Cup, Finch won the toss, and without giving a second thought, decided to bat first. The pitch, a dream to bat on, produced 381 runs for Australia.

Warner and Finch (51) opened the batting for Australia and yet again added a hundred run partnership for the team. Warner has been scoring runs consistently in the tournament and scored a splendid hundred, his second of the edition. During his 166, Warner became the first player to reach 400 runs in the competition and also became the highest run scorer of World Cup 2019. With Khawaja (89), Warner added 192 runs for the second wicket. Maxwell then murdered Bangladesh’s bowling attack as he smashed 32 runs in just ten balls helping Australia to reach their second highest score of World Cup history.

Chasing a score of 381 is never easy, especially when you have to face Starc and Cummins. Although Bangladesh scored 333 for 8 in their 50 overs, the chase was never on. From the beginning, they required a run rate of around 8 in an over for the successful hunt, but they batted at six runs per over till 40th over, which meant they had to chase 140 odd runs in the last 60 balls. Even in the T20 age of cricket, the task was impossible to achieve. Shakib (41) had a rare failure, but he managed to cross the mark of 400 runs in the tournament. Rahim (102) and Mahmudullah (69) just completed the formality in the end.
