    Australia win by 8 wickets

    Just the win they were expecting at the start of the game. By a margin of 8 wickets they have won the game and that will be a huge boost to their NRR having chased the target in 6.2 overs. 

  • Nov 04, 2021 05:41 PM IST

    Warner departs

    Another wicket falls for Australia in their search for the quick finish. Warner is the batsman to depart, scoring 18 off 14.

  • Nov 04, 2021 05:36 PM IST

    A wicket for Taskin

    He deserved it more than anyone, having missed two opportunities to dismiss the Aussie skipper. Finch made room to hit the ball over the offside, but missed it and the ball hit the stumps. He walked back for 40 off 20, but Finch has done the damage. Australia need 16 more to win

  • Nov 04, 2021 05:31 PM IST

    21 off the 4th over!

    Warner started off with a boundary cut through point against Mustafizur. Finch then whipped one over deep mid-wicket for a six. Warner then smashed two back-to-back boundaries to take Australia to 44 for no loss in 4 overs.

  • Nov 04, 2021 05:23 PM IST

    Australia targetting NRR

    Finch and Warner are going hard against the Bangladesh attack, having already scored 23 runs in three overs with the captain smashing two boundaries and a six.

  • Nov 04, 2021 05:07 PM IST

    The chase begins!

    Warner and Finch make their way to the middle to chase this score down as quickly as possible. If they can get to the target in 8.1 overs, Australia's NRR will surpass South Africa's. Taskin Ahmed will open the attack for Bangladesh. 

  • Nov 04, 2021 05:01 PM IST

    Mitchell Starc speaks

    “We set ourselves to improve on that last fixture and I think we started really well in the powerplay and Adam Zampa taking a five-for was outstanding for us today, so good all-round performance with the ball. I had a few days to try and find some rhythm in my run-up, but we had to put the last fixture out of our minds and that's the nature of T20 cricket. We had a break and played a couple of rounds of golf and for me it's all about trying to find rhythm with my run-up.”

  • Nov 04, 2021 05:00 PM IST

    Record for Zampa

    He became the second Australian to pick a five-wicket haul in ICC men's T20 World Cup after James Faulkner's 5 for 27 against Pakistan in 2016. 5 for 19 is also the best figure by an Australian in the tournament history.

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:56 PM IST

    Bangladesh skittled for 73

    Bangladesh now have five scores of below 100 in T20 World Cups, two of them came in this tournament itself. After being folded for 84 against South Africa, the Asian country has been skittled for a disastrous 73 which is now their second-lowest total.

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:49 PM IST

    Zampa has a five-for

    When he returned into the attack in the 15th over, Zampa was on a hat-trick, having picked two-in-two in his third over. But the opportunity was put down by Wade. Nevertheless, he finished with a five-wicket haul, folding Bangladesh for just 73

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:41 PM IST

    It's all going Australia's way

    Round the wicket, shortish ball, down the leg side and Mahmudullah gets a faint edge. Wade makes a full-length dive to complete the dismissal. Bangladesh now go 8 down and stand on the verge of an unwanted total

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:33 PM IST

    Two-in-two for Zampa

    Shamim went for the cut against the googly and only manages to get a good outside edge. Wade makes no mistake as Shamim departs for 19. He then picks his third wicket catching Mehedi Hasan in front of the leg stump, dismissing him lbw for a golden duck.

    Bangladesh 62/7 in 11 overs

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:22 PM IST

    Warne is happy with Australia's show

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:20 PM IST

    First six of the game!

    50 deliveries into the game and Bangladesh score their first six in the game. Shamim Hossain got down on one knee to slog sweep the flighted delivery from Zampa over deep mid-wicket for a six. That was the longest part of the boundary. And that brought up 50 for Bangladesh as well.

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:08 PM IST

    Zampa joins the party

    First ball after the powerplay and Zampa picks up the fifth wicket, dismissing Afif Hossain for a duck. Australia will be happy with this given that they would want to improve their NRR besides winning their remaining games in the World Cup.

    Bangladesh 33/5 in 6.1 overs

  • Nov 04, 2021 04:03 PM IST

    Hazlewood ends Naim's charge

    Sliced on through backward point and punched on through the covers against Cummins to smash two boundaries. Naim then took onm Starc to hit back-to-back fours before getting one against Hazlewood. But the the latter ended his charge with a shortish and slower ball as Naim pulled it straight to Cummins at mid-wicket.

    Bangladesh 33/4 in 6 overs

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:50 PM IST

    Bangladesh sink further

    A third wicket falls for Bangladesh as it is Maxwell who joins the list, dismissing Mushfiqur Rahman for just 1 (2). Another poor start from Bangladesh, which has been one of the reasons behind their exit from the World Cup. 

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:45 PM IST

    Second wicket in second over!

    A thick inside edge and the ball hits the middle stump. Hazlewood dismisses Soumya Sarkar for just 5 off 8 as Bangladesh go 2 down for 6. This was the third time the Aussie dismissed Sarkar in T20s, for just seven runs in 22 balls.

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:38 PM IST

    Bangladesh in early trouble

    Gets some movement off the pitch and Starc gets the better of Liton Das in the third delivery of the game. He looked to push it towards the off side, but a late movement took the inside edge before rattling against the stumps.

    Bangladesh 1/1 in 0.3 overs

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:31 PM IST

    The game begins

    Bangladesh openers make their way to the middle. Mitch Starc to begin the proceedings for Australia. The players take a knee. And the game begins!

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:30 PM IST

    Bangladesh need a perfect start

    Among Super 12 nations, Bangladesh have the second worst run rate in the powerplay scoring at 5.02 runs per over against the new ball and a boundary every 12 balls, which is the worst in the tournament. Bangladesh have also lost 14 wickets in the powerplay, tied with Sri Lanka and Scotland. Australian bowlers, on the other hand, have an economy rate of 8.22 with the new ball, the worst in the tournament.

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:11 PM IST

    Good news for Aussie fans

    Chasing teams have won seven of the eight T20 World Cup games in Dubai.

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:07 PM IST

    Playing XI for the two teams

    Bangladesh (Playing XI): Mohammad Naim, Liton Das(w), Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah(c), Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman

    Australia (Playing XI): David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(w), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:07 PM IST

    Captains speak

    Mahmudullah: Looks a good wicket to bat, we need to put a decent total. We didn't play to our potential and it's a last opportunity for us. Want for play for pride. We got one change. Nasum is not playing and Fizz (Mustafizur) comes back in.

    Finch: We gonna have a bowl first. Just want it exploit any moisture on offer. Mitch Marsh comes in for Ashton Agar. That's the only change

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:03 PM IST

    TOSS TIME

    Mahmudullah calls, Finch wins. Australia opt to field first

  • Nov 04, 2021 03:01 PM IST

    Pitch report

    This is the same pitch that was used for yesterday's match between NZ and Scotland. 328 runs were scored yesterday, so it's a decent batting surface. Will have some seam and bounce, and there might be some spin on offer as well.

  • Nov 04, 2021 02:48 PM IST

    Australia's semi-final chances

    Australia need to win both their remaining games - they play West Indies in their final game - but an NRR of -0.627 implies they will need England to beat South Africa, who stand second in the table with six points from four games and have an NRR of +0.742.

  • Nov 04, 2021 02:32 PM IST

    Bangladesh's poor record

    Bangladesh have beaten a full-member nation in the T20 World Cup only twice in 25 games - against West Indies in 2007 and Afghanistan in 2014. If Australia win today, they will become the second team after Pakistan to beat Bangladesh five times in the tournament history.

  • Nov 04, 2021 02:16 PM IST

    Head-to-head tie

    In their recent bilateral series, in August this year, Bangladesh recorded their first ever T20I win against Australia before defeating them 4-1 in the five-match series at home. However, Australia still stand ahead, albeit narrowly, in their H2H tie with five wins in nine meetings. Four of those wins came in T20 World Cups.

  • Nov 04, 2021 02:07 PM IST

    Hello and welcome!

    Hello and welcome to the LIVE coverage of the Group 1 game between Australia and Bangladesh, which will be played at the Dubai International Stadium. Australia will hope to stage a comeback after being hammered by England in their previous game, against a battered Bangladesh side. Stay tuned for more updates!
