    Aaron Finch: Everytime there was a partnership going, there were a few butterflies. We have been pretty consistent. We have guys who have WC experience. Having good partnerships with bat and ball is important. Few of the changes were forced. The spinner was left out as well for a few games. It also depends on the wicket. We always pride ourselves on our fielding and we were quite sloppy despite the wet conditions at the beginning. No excuses there. Not yet thinking about semis. Hopefully, we will secure a place in the top four. Nice to get a couple of boundaries away at the start. The wickets have been good as well and helps as an opening batsman.

    Mashrafe Mortaza: I think we gave away 40-50 on the field. Otherwise, it could have been a different chase. Credit to Warner and other Australian batsmen. This is the best we have. A few newcomers have come in. To be honest, we have been positive. Soumya got out run out and Shakib-Tamim did well but 381 was tough. Every game we need to win and wait for others as well.

    David Warner (3/3): It was a little slow, the wicket, but credit to the way Bangladesh fought. Mushfiqur played a fantastic innings. It was a grind for the bowlers, very difficult to get wickets out there, but it was great to get those two points in the end.

    David Warner (2/3): The bowlers bowled well to us in patches. It’s about knocking it around and try to target 6-8 an over after that in the middle overs. You have to adapt to the conditions, and it’s about momentum after that. If you get off to a flier, it’s about assessing: (1) how many wickets you lost, and (2) how to go about the middle overs.

    David Warner (1/3): Obviously it’s a great achievement (to equal Adam Gilchrist’s 16 ODI hundreds). For us it’s about getting the 2 points and moving onto the next game at Lord’s. I think you always keep wickets in hand in ODIs. It’s the way we play. We don’t intentionally not go after it on purpose. You have to respect the new ball. If you get off to a flier, you go ahead with the momentum you have.

    Bangladesh put up a brave fight but it was Australia who sealed a 48-run win in Nottingham:

    IT’S A WRAP! Australia have beaten Bangladesh by 48 runs to register their fifth win in World Cup 2019. Bangladesh put up a brave fight with the bat, with Mushfiqur Rahim scoring a hundred and Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah scoring fifties. But Australia, who scored 381, powered by David Warner’s 166 scored far too many for Bangladesh’s liking.

    HUNDRED! Fine fine knock from Mushfiqur Rahim. Took him 95 balls to register his ton.

    FOUR! Just over the mid-off. Mushfiqur Rahim moves into 90s.

Match highlights, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Match 26: David Warner’s 166 sets up Australia’s win over Bangladesh

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Match 26 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between Australia and Bangladesh at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Thursday.

Buoyed by their emphatic win over West Indies, Bangladesh will be brimming with confidence when they face a stiff test against Australia in their crucial World Cup fixture at Trent Bridge, here on Thursday.

On Monday, Bangladesh came out with a commanding performance in their last game against the Windies as they comfortably chased down 322-run target in Taunton. Shakib al Hasan (124*) and Liton Das (94*) played brilliant knocks as the Bangla Tigers made mockery of the Windies total and crossed the line with more than 50 balls to spare.

With wins against South Africa and Windies, Bangladesh have declared that they are no more underdogs and, now, they would aim to make a place in the semifinals.
