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.

N Coulter-Nile to S Rahman, 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.

N Coulter-Nile to Mahmudullah, 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.

DRINKS BREAK. Bangladesh are slightly losing the plot now. Even at this stage, they are almost on par with Australia. The Kangaroos were 186 at this point of time, but with just a wicket down. It is from here that the explosion started. The Tigers will hope that they don't have an implosion instead.

A Zampa to L Das, OUT! LBW! Zampa gets Australia the breakthrough. It was the slider, pitching outside off and Das misses the flick, with the ball hitting the pad. 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.

M Starc to T Iqbal, 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.

M Stoinis to Al Hasan, 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.

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.

N Coulter-Nile to T Iqbal, 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.

N Coulter-Nile to Al Hasan, 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.

N Coulter-Nile to T Iqbal, 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.

Pat Cummins to T Iqbal, 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.

Pat Cummins to S Sarkar, 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.

M Starc to T Iqbal, 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.
