The game was over as a contest after the Australians restricted Bangladesh to 123. Brett Lee became the first bowler to take a Twenty20 hat-trick and all the other bowlers bowled a superb line and length to keep Bangladesh on a leash. Bangladesh's batsmen were very disappointing after their break-neck start against South Africa yesterday.

A target of 124 was never going to Test Australia and Hayden top-scored with an unbeaten 73. Brett Lee is the Man of the Match for his hat-trick.

Thank you all for your emails today. This is George Binoy signing off for the evening. Cheers.
