Pre-tournament favourites Australia finished their unimpressive World Twenty20 campaign with a comfortable seven-wicket win over Bangladesh in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Openers Aaron Finch scored a 45-ball 71 and David Warner knocked a fiery 35-ball 48 to help Australia chase down a 154-run target in 17.3 overs in the Super-10 Group two match.

Australia and hosts Bangladesh had lost their first three matches and were playing for pride in a meaningless match with no bearing on semi-final positions.

Finch and Warner put on a solid 98-run opening wicket stand by the 12th over to quash any hopes of a win for Bangladesh at a packed Sher-e-Bangla stadium.

Finch smashed four sixes and seven boundaries before he was bowled by paceman Al-Amin Hossain who finished with 2-30.

Finch was also ruthless, hitting three sixes and five boundaries before Hossain bowled him with a beautiful delivery.

Cameron White, who made 18 not out, hit a four and a six to seal the victory.
