15:59 hrs IST

Warner takes on Shakib

FOUR! SIX! Michael Slater in the commentary says “That’s the Warner we know.” And he is absolutely right. A different Warner has walked out to bat today.

Big problems for Bangladesh

15:44 hrs IST

Fifty up for Australia

15:35 hrs IST

Don’t bowl there

SIX! Cracker of a pull shot from David Warner. Mustafizur tries to test Warner with a short one, bad idea. Warner quickly transfers his weight to the backfoot and his fast hands do the rest. Ominous signs for Bangladesh

15:31 hrs IST

Majestic from Warner

WOW! If there was a visual representation of the word timing then it had to be this shot from David Warner. Mortaza bowls seam-up, pitches it slightly short, Warner stretches his arms and just taps it past mid off. The fielder did not even bother to run and rightly so. Pure class from the Aussie left-hander

15:22 hrs IST

Warner dropped!

Did Sabbir drop it? Mortaza certainly believes he did. Bangladesh set Warner up for that, they had two points and the plan almost worked. Warner flashes hard on the wide one, it went straight to Sabbir at backward point, a bit low to his right but he spills it. Signals that he didn’t pick it. It results in a single, costly miss. Warner dropped!

15:20 hrs IST

First SIX

MAXIMUM! Finchs’ eyes lit up seeing that one in his arc. He launches into it, goes over cover to collect the first six of the match. The Australian captain looks positive.

15:13 hrs IST

Change of pace from Mortaza

Mortaza realizes that there is no swing on offer and he immediately resorts to the use of slower ones, as early as the third over of the match.That’s experience for you! This might just be the way to go on this track.

15:08 hrs IST

Hello says Warner

FOUR! This outfield is lightning quick. First a tap from Finch races away to the fence and now a gentle push from Warner beats the cover fielder comfortably. Great start for Australia, early signs that this might be a high-scoring encounter.

15:05 hrs IST

Golden touch from Finch

FOUR! What timing from Aaron Finch. Just a tap on the leg side and it races away to the fence, no chance for the fine-leg fielder. Finch is off the mark with a boundary.

14:59 hrs IST

All set

The players out, Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza has the new ball in his hand, he will be bowling from round the wicket to David Warner. Here we go!
