White gets three as Bangladesh slump to their lowest score ever. Shortish delivery outside off, tried to cut it, gets the bottom edge, ricochets off Haddin's thigh and Clarke dives forward from first slip to snaffle it inches from the ground and seal the win
Another good day's work for Australia. Another demoralising loss for Bangladesh. The visitors' bowlers did an acceptable job but the batting was woeful and the old problems of going for their shots too early persists.
Ashraful: If you lose five wickets in the first 20 overs, it's very difficult to come back. They bowled very well, good line and length. Our shot selection was poor.
Clarke is full of praise for the energy in the field and from the bowlers. He is also thrilled with the way the new boys like Brett Geeves and Shaun Marsh have stepped up.
Michael Hussey is named Man of the Match for his superbly paced 85.
