Over 20: 12 runs off the over. Ban 156/5

Over 19: 17 runs off the over. Ban 144/5

Over 18: Big over for Bangladesh as 15 runs came off it. Ban 127/5

Over 17: 4 runs off the over. Ban 112/5

Over 16: 4 runs and a wicket off the over. Ban 108/5

15.2 Zampa to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT

Shakib was making room, Zampa follows him with his orthodox leggie. Just a little bit of extra bounce makes the top edge appear and short third man takes care of the rest.

Over 15: 8 runs off the over. Ban 104/4

Over 14: 5 runs off the over. Ban 96/4

Over 13: 11 runs off the over. Ban 91/4

Over 12: 12 runs and a wicket off the over. Ban 80/4

11.3 Zampa to Shuvagata Hom, OUT

Against a batsman looking to take him on, Zampa sneaks in the faster one on a shortish length. Hom goes on the back foot for the pull, realises its not on and tries to adjust.

Over 11: 4 runs off the over. Ban 68/3

Over 10: 3 runs off the over. Ban 64/3

9.2 Zampa to Mohammad Mithun, OUT

The most deceptive thing in his arsenal. It sat up for the pull shot, Mithun nailed it but he picks out the fielder at deep midwicket.

Over 9: 12 runs off the Maxwell over. Ban 61/2

Over 8: 4 runs off the over. Ban 49/2

Over 7: 12 runs off the Mitch Marsh over. Ban 45/2

Over 6: 8 runs and a wicket came off the Shane Watson over. Ban 33/2

5.1 Watson to Sabbir Rahman, OUT

One risk too many for Rahman and Watson, returning to the attack, strikes again. He should have aborted the shot because of what eventually happened. He hit the ball too high on the bat, got very little power behind it, and was caught smartly by a diving Faulkner at mid-on.

Over 5: 6 runs off the over. Ban 25/1

Over 4: Big over for Bangladesh. 9 runs came off that over. Ban 19/1

Over 3: 5 runs off the over. Ban 10/1

Over 2: 3 runs and a wicket off the over. Ban 5/1

1.2 Watson to Soumya Sarkar, OUT

Soumya has reached out to what could conceivably have been a wide and cut it straight to point. A bemused Watson walks over to celebrate with his team-mates, still wondering how such tripe became wicket-taking.

Over 1: 2 runs off the Coulter-Nile over. Ban 2/0

Australia will be determined to demolish underdogs Bangladesh in their World Twenty20 clash on Monday, to secure their first points in the group stages and increase their chances of reaching the semi-finals.

AUS XI: U Khawaja, S Watson, S Smith, D Warner, G Maxwell, M Marsh, J Faulkner, P Nevill, J Hastings, N Coulter-Nile, A Zampa

BAN XI: Mithun, Sarkar, Rahman, Shakib, Mahmudullah, Rahim (wk), Hom, Mortaza (c), Sajib, Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman
