Cricket World Cup 2019: Australia won 48 runs on Bangladesh
In the 26th match of the 12th World Cup, the defending champion Australia beat Bangladesh by 48 runs.
What happened in the match
On the ground of the Trent Bridge, Australia won the toss against Bangladesh to bat first, 381 runs in the fifty overs. David Warner scored the highest of 166 for Australia while the Somalia ruler of Bangladesh got out of three.
In reply, the Bangladesh team made 333 runs in the 40 overs in the run of eight wickets. Bangladesh made the highest score by Mushfaq Rahim, who played 102 for unbeaten innings while Nitna Collator Nile, Mitchell Stark and Marks Stevens out two two players.
The best player of the match
Australia’s opener David Warner had his 16th Test in a one-day match that he completed in 110 balls and became the highest-run batsmen in the tournament.
He scored 14 fours and five sixs in this innings. This is Warner’s second innings in the tournament.
Remember that Warner returned to the Australian team after a year’s ban resulting from the World Cup one year ago.
Bangladesh’s strong response
When Australia hit the target of 382 for Bangladesh, it was difficult to get Bangladesh closer to this target. But in this way all the Bangladesh batsmen made 333 runs with the help of small partnerships.
In this context Mushfaq Rahim and Tamim Iqbal’s role was very important. Tamim Iqbal played an impressive innings of 62 runs, while Mushfaq played fourth in the fourth innings, but regret that no one with him could survive.
When Bangladesh made 300 runs in 45 overs, it felt that Bengali bowlers and the fielders had given 30 to 40 more.
The main turnout of the match
Bangladesh’s Shakib-ul-Hasan has so far seen a great deal in this tournament. He has made two scenes and batting at third place to provide a strong foundation for the team.
Even today, Shakib showed a very good batting and played 41 runs of beautiful innings, but at the same time when the position of Bangladesh was steady, he went out by the Mitchell Stunts.
If one of the first three Bengali batsmen went to play a big innings, perhaps the goal of pursuing this target could be possible.
