Share

A tournament highest of 166 by David Warner has helped Australia put a huge total of 381 against Bangladesh in their World Cup clash.

110 Innings taken for David Warner to score his 16th hundred.

Soumya Sarkar brought relief for a anxious Bangladesh by sending back Finch with his fifth ball in what was a soft dismissal off the medium pacer in the 21st over of the innings.

Warner first shared a 121-run stand for the opening wicket with Aaron Finch (53) and then continued to dominate as he and Usman Khawaja (89) added another 192 runs.

Warner took 55 balls to reach his first two fifties but he switched on his power-hitting mode after reaching his century and took just 30 more balls to reach 150 runs.

Bangladesh (BAN): Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Mithun, Sabbir Rahaman, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Jayed. Rubel and Sabbir will both make their first starts in this World Cup. Previously, Bangladesh had scored 24 against West Indies in the 38th over.

Australia have made three changes, replacing Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa and Nathan Coulter-Nile with Shaun Marsh, Jason Behrendorff and Kane Richardson. Stoinis and Coulter-Nile will play Bangladesh for the first time. Usman Khawaja or Soumya Sarkar can also do.

Australia is looking to consolidate its place in the semifinal positions while Bangladesh is trying to break in.

Their lone win came against Pakistan in their opener three weeks ago.

Bangladesh are coming off an exciting seven-wicket win against West Indies in the last game, chasing down 322 without breaking a sweat. "There were some half-chances, and especially with the two guys who batted so well for Bangladesh", Sir Viv pointed out. Captain Mashrafe Mortaza is the only survivor from either side.

25 Runs scored by Australia in the 46th over, the moost in a single over in this World Cup.
