The 2021 champions Australia outplayed Bangladesh in every department in their 28-run win via the DLS method in their first Super 8 encounter of the ICC T20 World Cup.

Bangladesh were restricted to 140/8 before Australia sailed to 100/2 in 11.2 overs and won the match by Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method in a rain-affected clash.

Shanto believed that coming up against a good team like Australia required some form of gamble. The Tigers also moved Rishad Hossain to number four in the batting order, but the teenager, who has created a reputation for himself by scoring rapid runs, struggled to make an impression with the bat against Australia.

"The wicket was good, a bit slow, but we should have made at least 170. Playing against this team, we should gamble, today Rishad Hossain came at 4 to tackle the spinners, he's a big-hitter but he couldn't execute that," Shanto said in a post-match presentation.

Shanto capped off a dry spell in the shortest format. In the match, Shanto played a crucial knock of 41 runs off 36 runs.

"I'm doing alright so far, enjoying playing here, and think I can do a bit more," he said on his performance.

Bangladesh will face India at the same site in less than 48 hours, and the Tigers captain hoped for a stronger performance against Rohit Sharma-led side after their net run rate plummeted following today's crushing defeat.

Bangladesh are now at the bottom of Group 1 of the Super Eight, with a net run rate of -2.471.

The Bangladesh captain said that the top-order scoring runs were important in the game and hoped that bowlers can continue the good work in the next game against India.

"It's very important for the top-order to get runs like we did today, that's a big boost, hopefully, the bowlers will continue their form. Looking for a good show against India in our next match," he added.
