ICC Cricket World Cup Highlights: Australia beat Bangladesh by 48 runs

Updated : 2019-06-21 08:01:48

Australia strengthened its Cricket World Cup semifinal credentials and punctured Bangladesh's in a 48-run victory at Trent Bridge. David Warner became the tournament's leading run-scorer by hitting 166 in two-century partnerships that underlined a 381-5 total, the second highest in World Cups for Australia. Then Mitchell Starc grabbed sole leadership among the wicket-takers with his 14th and 15th as Bangladesh's chase slowly unraveled and finished tamely on 333-8. Mushfiqur Rahim finished a maiden World Cup century on 102 not out, but his team's hopes faded halfway through its chase when Tamim Iqbal (62) was back in the pavilion with Shakib Al Hasan (41). Australia, the defending champion back on top of the standings, goes to Lord's on Tuesday to face top-ranked England in good shape. Since losing to India, Australia has won three straight group matches, and posted four consecutive 300-plus scores. Here are the key highlights of the match:
