Taskin bangs one short, and Mitchell Marsh sees it early and swats it with immense power over midwicket for a big six. Australia wrap up victory in 6.2 overs, which means their net run rate is now 1.03, clear of South Africa's 0.74. Sometimes, a team just steps on the field and everything goes right for them. This was one of those times for Australia. What a day.
Deja vu for Bangladesh, except Australia gave them an even worse hiding today than South Africa did on Thursday. They've ended another T20 World Cup campaign without a single win in the main group stage. They have immense talent, as was evidenced by their victory at the Under-19 World Cup last year, but they have a lot to do to become a top-rung T20 team. Their biggest issue right now, and for a long time, is that they don't seem to have the power game for the format just yet. They'll go back and do a bit of reflection, and hopefully out of this misadventure can come some learnings that they'll build on in the near future.
Adam Zampa, as expected, is the Player of the Match. A maiden five-for for him, and he could have had a hat-trick too, had Matthew Wade not put down Taskin Ahmed. "I think I wouldn't have had as many wickets as I do had it not been for Wadey's hands," is Zampa's response when he's asked about that moment. Sweet.
Anyway, this group is now beautifully set up, between a flying England, and two teams chasing them manfullly in South Africa and Australia. West Indies still have the tiniest of chances too - they play Sri Lanka later tonight, so make sure you tune in for that.
That's all for me for now, as I go away and dash off the full match report. See ya!
