    3.2 good length ball around the off stump, Tamim goes for an on-the-up drive again but this time his timing is terrible. Lobs a low catch to mid-off and departs with his head down. He's not had a very good few months recently and that rut continues 12/2
    1.4 simple catch at first slip and Anamul succumbs to a very rash shot! Charged him and swung wildly, that's been his gameplan in this little innings, and it ends with a straightforward snick into the cordon. Reward for a fuller length for Coulter-Nile 4/1
    17.3 he has struck this quite hard, but Maxwell has pulled off a blinder at deep midwicket. Cleared his legs for a full swing of the bat down on this full ball on middle. It went flat and hard and Maxi runs forward and dives full length to cling on to a low chance 133/4
    16.2 went deep in his crease to try and get under this fuller ball on middle, but the slog falls safely into the hands of Maxwell at deep midwicket. Falls short of a well-deserved fifty 124/3

    19.6 bowled off the last ball as he was trying to make room! Beaten for pace as he tried to dab it away to third man for at best a single 153/5

    15.1 terrific catch from Nasir, who inspects his right wrist to check for damage. Leg cutter dupes him as Finch backs away and looks to flay this over the covers. Gets more of an edge which soars into the evening sky. Deep point races in, keeps his eyes on the ball all the way through and pouches it safely despite it swirling a little away from him at the last minute 135/2
    11.2 off goes the middle stump and Al-Amin sends Warner off, with a few verbals as well. Good length ball angled in at the stumps as he had switched around the wicket. The batsman went for a pull, when it wasn't really short enough and misses. Middle stump is knocked back and Al-Amin gets in Warner's face while celebrating 98/1

    16.2 misses a full toss and has his stumps in disarray. First T20 wicket for Taskin. Looked to hit across the line towards midwicket and the bat face closed a little too early. Consolation wicket, but Australia are already on the cusp of a... uh, consolation victory 147/3

Match Notes

  • Selfies don't save Bangladesh

    It was a limp end to the home team's campaign, though the DJ temporarily raised spirits by playing a <i>Miles</i> number

  • Mushfiqur backs out-of-form Tamim

    Mushfiqur Rahim has given his full backing to Tamim Iqbal after the Bangladesh opener completed a wretched World T20 campaign with another early dismissal

  • Late win can't hide Australia's shortcomings

    The sight of Aaron Finch and David Warner marauding their way to a 98-run opening stand hint at what might have been for Australia, but the selection against Bangladesh highlighted their issues

  • Warner's faulty switch

    ESPNcricinfo picks the plays of the day from the World T20 match between Bangladesh and Australia

  • Australia breeze to consolation win

    Aaron Finch and David Warner gave Australia the chance to go home with a solitary win in an otherwise forgettable tournament
