One of the favourites of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, Australia, will take over a rather comfortable side, Bangladesh, in the coming match. The Kangaroos triumphed against their arch rivals, England, by a big margin of 111 runs. The home side powered 342 runs for the loss of nine wickets in the allocated 50 overs and squeezed the innings of the Englishmen for 231 with 49 deliveries still available. The Bengal Tigers took off smartly while beating the minnows, Afghanistan, by a difference of 105 runs in the 7th game of the event. The former smashed 267 runs before they were bowled out on the last ball of the 50th over and folded the innings of the latter at 162 with 7.1 overs to spare. Both winning sides will look forward to gain another two points when they meet in the 11th game of the tournament.
Aaron Finch toyed with the English bowling and registered his sixth ODI ton while opening the innings for Australia. He blasted 135 runs, Glenn Maxwell, George Bailey and Brad Haddin chipped in with 66, 55 and 31 while David Warner, Shane Watson and Steven Smith can spark in the coming matches. Mitchell Marsh broke the back of the rival batting by grabbing 5-33, Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Johnson shared two wickets each as Josh Hazlewood, Watson and Maxwell are their supporting bowlers.
The experienced duo of Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan associated in a valuable partnership of 114 runs for the fifth wicket. They contributed 71 and 63 runs whereas rest of their batsmen were unable to cross the 30 runs mark. Anamul Haque, Tamim Iqbal, Soumaya Sarkar and Mahmudullah should concentrate on their batting and assure their team with a hefty score. Mashrafe Mortaza led his side from the front by taking three wickets as Shakib Al Hasan, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed and Mahmudullah are bowling well.
