Australia secured their first win of the World T20 with a 3 wickets win over Bangladesh at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Monday.
Smith won the toss for Australia and invited Bangladesh to bat first. Mithum and Sarkar opened the batting for the Tigers, in the absence of the injured Tamim Iqbal. Watson struck early to dismiss Sarkar in the 2nd over to put Bangladesh on the back foot. Mithum went on to make 23 from 22 balls, while Rahman struggled during his 12 from 17 balls. Shakib Al Hasan looked in good form during his 33 from 25 balls but lost his wicket at a key juncture to place even more pressure on the lower order. Mahmudullah was magnificent with the bat, blasting the quality Australia attack during the death overs to end on 49 from 29 balls taking his side to 156/5. Zampa was the best bowler for Australia, ending with excellent figures of 3/23 from his 4 overs.
Khawaja and Watson got Australia off to a lighting start, as they pounded the Bangladesh bowling attack for 51 runs during the power play overs. Watson was the first man dismissed with his score on 21 from 15 balls, but it was the bat of Khawaja that caught the eye, scoring 58 from 45 balls before he was bowled by Al-Amin Hossain in the 14th over. The middle order for Australia were not up to scratch, looking to end the game in a rush, and only succeeding in losing their wickets. It was left to Faulkner and Nevill to score the winning runs which they did with 9 balls remaining in the innings. Shakib Al Hasan was the top bowler for the Tigers, ending with figures of 3/27 from his 4 overs.
