over long-off to complete Australia's only victory of the World T20. The two batsmen touch gloves, but there's no real joy there. Al-Amin offers a half-volley that has been blasted out of the ground, Bailey getting a decent hit out there
6.45 pm That's it from this match, thank you for your company and your comments but do go on to the other match, where Pakistan and West Indies will fight for a spot in the semi-final. This is Alagappan Muthu, signing off
"A little consolation," says George Bailey, "Hell of a lot better result that if it had gone the other way. All the things we wanted to do, we did did today. Picked the balls, picked the gaps and the bowling was good as well. [Seam-dominated attack?] Just wanted to hit up them with a bit of pace. We knew there was enough varionaiton with Maxi, Watson and Christians medium pace. I think the its still a game of basics, we just haven't done them well enough in crunch games and lost them. We had a side that was up for the challenge and I'd not want to take anything from them"
"In the end we couldn't finish it well,"Mushifiqur Rahim, "After losing a couple of wickets, getting around 160+ would have been good. The wicket wasn't turning too much and our fast bowling is not our strength. Warner and Finch batted really well in the front and that dropped catch was touch as well. There are a few positives. Anamul and Shakib did very well, but in a World tournament we need to do well as a team. Thanks to the crowd for their support and hopefully we give back their faith soon"
Aaron Finch is the Man of the Match "Disappointing that it's come in this game. Nice to finish off with a win though. Wicket got better as the game went on. The way we started with the ball was good. We were in SA as well, we knew they would be slow, but we just didn't know it would be this slow. "
6.30 pm The target wasn't really daunting, and with the openers setting a solid platform Australia were always in the driver's seat. Aaron Finch continued his good form with 71 off 45 and he proved the difference as he blunted Bangladesh's spinners quite ably
smashes it down the ground, length ball with enough room outside off to pick it up and power it away
fullish on off stump, pushed down to mid-off

short and wide outside off, Bailey looks to steer it down the third man but only gets a bottom edge to the keeper
gets it nice and full and just outside off, pushed to short cover
shortish and outside off, dabbed to point
George Bailey, the Aussie captain, is in
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
slower ball, came out of the back of his hand. Maxi though was waiting for it and he has laced this through midwicket.
Time for Taskin, with 11 runs for Australia to get
damien: "The problem is australia isn't playing the entire victorian team, white,finch,maxwell, hodge, muirhead isn't enough" I was expecting this a lot earlier

full and outside off, Maxi nudges it all along the ground to long-on
leg cutter again, steered to third man with an angled face

Glenn Maxwell is the new batsman, by the way
fullish on off stump, defended
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
Bangladesh go back to Al-Amin again
dart outside off stump, cut away to deep point
look out over extra cover! Plantede his front leg outside leg and hammered this over the top, that's the second time he's nailed that shot today
came forward and pushes this towards point
shortish, but this is quicker. So Finch punches it behind point, along the ground
short ball, slammed to the cover boundary. Made room outside leg and he's muscled this away. No need to keep it down
