Australia 381 - 5 (50 Overs) [Warner 166(147), Khawaja 89(72); Soumya Sarkar 3/58, Mustafizur 1/69] Bangladesh 333 - 8 (50 Overs) [Rahim(wk) 102(97), Mahmudullah 69(50); Starc 2/55, Coulter-Nile 2/58] Result- Australia won by 48 runs
Despite a 382-run mountain in front of them, Bangladesh deserve credit for not throwing in the towel. In the process, they also registered their highest ODI score ever, leaving behind the 330-run total that they notched up against South Africa in their first match of this tournament at the Oval.
As Australia batted first, David Warner sizzled with a 166 and almost threatened to get a double. Maxwell also showcased his brilliance with a 10-ball 32. Once Australia muscled 131 runs in the last 10 overs, they did just enough to push Bangladesh on the brink, if not out of the game.
But the Bangladeshi innings had some ebbs and flows about it. Their batters decided to be positive and ensured Australia had to work hard for this win. However, even Bangladesh's highest total in ODIs didn't suffice.
A win by 48 runs might not mean it was close. But Aussies never underestimated their counterparts. And this total of 333 was despite Shakib having an off day. But Tamim, Rahim and Mahmudullah came to the party and ensured it wasn't a dull contest. Their NRR also wouldn't have suffered as much as it might have in case of a tame effort.
