HIGHLIGHTS

  • 23:26 (IST)

    AUSTRALIA WIN: On to the final over of the match. Stoinis comes for the final over. Mortaza strikes one over the bowlers head for a four. But that would not have any impact on the match. And on last ball of the over Mortaza gives a simple catch to Maxwell in the deep. That's the end of the match as Aussies emerge victorious by 48 runs.  

  • 23:22 (IST)

    100 FOR RAHIM: A great milestone for Rahim as he gets to his ton. A great innings from him as he takes his side close to Australia total. 

  • 23:19 (IST)

    OUT: And another one bites the dust. This time Starc gets the wicket of Mehidy Hasan. Warner takes an easy catch. From here on it should be an easy win for the Aussies. It is 323/7. 

  • 23:06 (IST)

    OUT: Two in two for Australia. A slower one from Coulter-Nile and Sabbir Rahman fails to judge it. He chops the ball on to his stumps. He goes for a first ball duck. And Aussies are on top once again. It's 302/6. 

  • 23:03 (IST)

    OUT: And after a long while Australia have a wicket coming their way. Coulter-Nile bangs in one short and Mahmudullah goes for a hook. But he finds a fielder in the deep. He has to depart for 69. Bangladesh are now 302/5. 

  • 23:00 (IST)

    SIX: Cummins continues. Australia are still the favourites in this battle. The equation is too steep for Bangladesh for the moment. But the kind of fight they have shown, has certainly raised some hopes. Mahmudullah just launches one from Cummins into the orbit. This is excellent batting by this duo. It's 300/4 as Bangladesh need 82 from 30 balls. 

  • 22:45 (IST)

    SIX, SIX: Zampa comes on for his ninth over. Bangladesh are just not giving up the fight though they might not be getting the required boundaries. Mahmudullah dances down the track and gets six runs. It's now or never for Bangladesh. And he gets another six in the over. Bangladesh are 264/4 now and need 118 in 48 balls now. 

  • 22:37 (IST)

    Mushfiqur Rahim reverse sweeps Zampa over point for a boundary. They are 245 for 4 in 20 overs and require 137 runs in the final 10 overs. Bangladesh need some very big overs but for now it looks like Australia will pick up a win with relative ease.

  • 21:51 (IST)

    Liton has been given lbw! It was a wrong'un from Zampa and it hit Liton on the front pad. He reviewed it but the replays suggest that the ball was clipping the leg stump. Liton will have to walk back for 20. 30 overs done, Bangladesh are 177 for 4.

  • 21:25 (IST)

    Knock him over! Just when Tamim was starting to play some shots, he dragged back one of Starc's deliveries back to the stumps and will have to walk back for 62. This is a big wicket for Australia and Bangladesh are now in some trouble.

  • 21:08 (IST)

    Tamim gets one short and slaps it towards backward square leg for a boundary and then works one towards third man to complete his fifty. This has been a quality knock but the left-hander will have to convert this one into a big score.

  • 20:57 (IST)

    OUT: And Bangladesh are two down now. Stoinis has done the trick for the Aussies. A slower one, and Shakib fails to judge the pace of it. He departs after scoring 41. Bangladesh are 102/2. 

  • 20:56 (IST)

    100: There is another change in the bowling as Adam Zampa comes into the attack. And in this over 100 comes up for the Bangladeshis. This has been a good partnership till now. After 18 overs it's 102/1. 

23:33 (IST)
A run fest at Nottingham
23:26 (IST)

AUSTRALIA WIN: On to the final over of the match. Stoinis comes for the final over. Mortaza strikes one over the bowlers head for a four. But that would not have any impact on the match. And on last ball of the over Mortaza gives a simple catch to Maxwell in the deep. That's the end of the match as Aussies emerge victorious by 48 runs.  

23:22 (IST)

100 FOR RAHIM: A great milestone for Rahim as he gets to his ton. A great innings from him as he takes his side close to Australia total. 

23:19 (IST)

OUT: And another one bites the dust. This time Starc gets the wicket of Mehidy Hasan. Warner takes an easy catch. From here on it should be an easy win for the Aussies. It is 323/7. 

23:17 (IST)

Rahim is trying his best to get Bangladesh across the line, but it looks all but over. In the meantime, he cracks two boundaries off Stoinis and enters the 90s. It has been an excellent innings from him. It's 322/6 after 48 overs. 

23:06 (IST)

OUT: Two in two for Australia. A slower one from Coulter-Nile and Sabbir Rahman fails to judge it. He chops the ball on to his stumps. He goes for a first ball duck. And Aussies are on top once again. It's 302/6. 

23:03 (IST)

OUT: And after a long while Australia have a wicket coming their way. Coulter-Nile bangs in one short and Mahmudullah goes for a hook. But he finds a fielder in the deep. He has to depart for 69. Bangladesh are now 302/5. 

23:00 (IST)

SIX: Cummins continues. Australia are still the favourites in this battle. The equation is too steep for Bangladesh for the moment. But the kind of fight they have shown, has certainly raised some hopes. Mahmudullah just launches one from Cummins into the orbit. This is excellent batting by this duo. It's 300/4 as Bangladesh need 82 from 30 balls. 

22:51 (IST)

This match is still not over. In fact Bangladesh are bringing down the equation within reach with each passing ball. The way Mahmudullah and Rahim are batting, Bangladesh would still fancy their chances. Cummins over reaps 13 runs. Bangladesh are 277/4. 

22:45 (IST)

SIX, SIX: Zampa comes on for his ninth over. Bangladesh are just not giving up the fight though they might not be getting the required boundaries. Mahmudullah dances down the track and gets six runs. It's now or never for Bangladesh. And he gets another six in the over. Bangladesh are 264/4 now and need 118 in 48 balls now. 

22:37 (IST)

Mushfiqur Rahim reverse sweeps Zampa over point for a boundary. They are 245 for 4 in 20 overs and require 137 runs in the final 10 overs. Bangladesh need some very big overs but for now it looks like Australia will pick up a win with relative ease.

22:27 (IST)

Mushfiqur upper-cuts one towards third man for a boundary but it looks like the game has gone far away from Bangladesh's reach. They are 226 for 4 in 38 and still need 156 runs.

22:19 (IST)

Two fours in the last two overs and Bangladesh are somehow keeping themselves in the game. The two will have to attack and make sure that the run rate stays within the reach. 36 gone, Bangladesh are 216 for 4.

22:11 (IST)

Mahmudullah chips one over point and gets a boundary. Still only seven runs from the over, Bangladesh are 210 for 4 in 34 overs.

22:07 (IST)

Mushfiqur Rahim lofts one towards deep mid-wicket for a boundary before Mahmudullah does the same, scoring a boundary at the same region. They will have to show intent. Bangladesh are 194 for 4 in 33 overs.

22:01 (IST)

Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah will now have to come up with something special if they want to get anywhere near the total. Zampa has looked way better in his second spell and it's not going to easy for the two batsmen. Bangladesh are 184 for 4 at the end of 32 overs.

21:51 (IST)

Liton has been given lbw! It was a wrong'un from Zampa and it hit Liton on the front pad. He reviewed it but the replays suggest that the ball was clipping the leg stump. Liton will have to walk back for 20. 30 overs done, Bangladesh are 177 for 4.

21:44 (IST)

Cummins goes full and Liton punches it down the ground for a boundary. He then knocks one towards cover where Stoinis misfields and allows the ball to run away for four. 10 runs from this over, Bangladesh are 167 for 3.

21:40 (IST)

Mushfiqur Rahim ends the over with a solid cover drive for four and now one of him or Liton will have to get a move on. Bangladesh need some big overs to keep themselves in the game.

21:35 (IST)

Bangladesh are currently at par with Australia but they will need someone to play innings like Warner and Maxwell. Pat Cummins has been brought back into the attack and the paceman concedes only three runs. 26 done, Bangladesh are 149 for 3.

21:29 (IST)

Liton Das comes into the crease and Starc welcomes him by pinning him on the back of the helmet. Liton got into an awkward position and took his eyes off the ball. The physio is out and after some check-up, Liton is set to go.

21:25 (IST)

Knock him over! Just when Tamim was starting to play some shots, he dragged back one of Starc's deliveries back to the stumps and will have to walk back for 62. This is a big wicket for Australia and Bangladesh are now in some trouble.

21:21 (IST)

Tamim is starting to play his shots now as he sweeps Zampa for a boundary towards backward square leg. Nine runs from this over but Bangladesh need some big overs. They are 144 for 2 in 24 overs.

21:17 (IST)

Mitchell Starc comes back into the attack and Tamim welcomes him with a cover drive for three runs. There was also a run out chance but Carey didn't get the direct hit. Still only six off the over, Bangladesh are 135 for 2.

21:13 (IST)

Mushfiqur Rahim comes down the track and smokes one down the ground for a maximum. Nine runs off this over, Bangladesh are 129 for 2 in 22 overs. Bangladesh will have to play out of their skin if they want to win this encounter. They will have to make sure that they reach as closer as possible to the target.

21:08 (IST)

Tamim gets one short and slaps it towards backward square leg for a boundary and then works one towards third man to complete his fifty. This has been a quality knock but the left-hander will have to convert this one into a big score.

21:04 (IST)

Zampa continues. But Musfiqur plays an excellent reverse sweep and sends the ball to the boundary rope. Bangladesh are clearly targeting the leg-spinner. After 20 overs it's 112/2.  

21:00 (IST)
Second blow for the Bangladesh team
20:57 (IST)

OUT: And Bangladesh are two down now. Stoinis has done the trick for the Aussies. A slower one, and Shakib fails to judge the pace of it. He departs after scoring 41. Bangladesh are 102/2. 

20:56 (IST)

100: There is another change in the bowling as Adam Zampa comes into the attack. And in this over 100 comes up for the Bangladeshis. This has been a good partnership till now. After 18 overs it's 102/1.

Australia vs Bangladesh Live Score, ICC World Cup 2019 Match at Nottingham Highlights: As it Happened

Australia vs Bangladesh Live Score, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ODI Match at Nottingham Latest Updates: 100 FOR RAHIM: A great milestone for Rahim as he gets to his ton. A great innings from him as he takes his side close to Australia total.

Australia vs Bangladesh in the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 20 (Thursday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and Live streaming will be available on Hotstar. The match will be played a Trent Bridge, in Nottingham and will begin at 1500 HRS IST. You can also follow all the action on our live blog. (AUS vs BAN).

PREVIEW: Up until a few years back, an Australia v Bangladesh contest would have been termed a mismatch, a David v Goliath contest where the odds of David winning was minuscule at best. But a lot has changed over the past few years. Bangladesh are no longer the pushovers they used to be, coming into a contest to win hearts, and nothing more.

They started off their 2019 campaign with a solid win over South Africa, gave New Zealand a mighty scare defending only 244, lost to England and then chased down 321 against West Indies by seven wickets with as many as 51 balls to spare.

One of the biggest reasons behind Bangladesh's success so far this tournament has been the form of their star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. He is the leading run scorer in the campaign with 384 runs in four innings and has also picked up five wickets at a good economy. While Shakib is undoubtedly the best player that Bangladesh has ever produced, to bring out performances with such consistency has surprised even his most ardent fans.

Having said that Australia are going to be a different kettle of fish for the Tigers. There is a reason why the head to head count in ODIs is 18:1 loaded in the favour of Australia. They have been meticulous so far in the competition with the only blip being against India. With four wins and one loss after five games, Australia are placed second on the points table and a win at Nottingham, in Trent Bridge will take them to the top of the pile and make their route to the semi-finals much easier.

The encouraging bit of news for them before the Bangladesh game is that Marcus Stoinis seems to have fully recovered after being on the sidelines for the last two weeks with a side strain. There is a fitness test that he still will have to go through but two days out from the clash, the all-rounder seemed to be in no trouble whatsoever be it batting or bowling. Australia Head coach Justin Langer too concurred with the above statement.

"We've been monitoring him," said the coach. "He's an elite athlete, he's an elite professional.

"He's determined, so it doesn't surprise me with where he's at now. It's a credit to him, it's a credit to the medical staff that are getting him up. So hopefully he can have a real impact on the tournament."

Nathan Coulter-Nile who had to miss the previous encounter against Sri Lanka due to soreness, too is available for selection against Bangladesh.

Stoinis' availability is more crucial as it helps Australia drop one of the four seamers from the side and include one of Adam Zampa or Nathan Lyon in the mix.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, will have to tighten their bowling against a rampant Australia top order. None of the bowlers so far have looked threatening for a period of time and the kind of form the likes of David Warner, Aaron Finch and Steve Smith have been, the Bangladeshis will have to maintain a strict channel else they will travel the distance.

Their batsmen though have been in good touch and will hope to continue their run against the Australian pacers.

This will be fifth and final game in Trent Bridge and the surface is looking a bit dry and expected to turn on first glance. There are a few thunderstorms predicted in Nottingham on Thursday but the game should largely remain unaffected by the rain.

Last Five ODIs

Australia: W W L W W

The defending champions have been in red hot form so far this tournament winning four of the last five games. They started off by brushing aside Afghanistan and West Indies, lost to India and then scored comfortable wins over Pakistan and Sri Lanka respectively.

Bangladesh: W NR L W L

Bangladesh have had a mixed competition so far. They started off with a convincing win over South Africa, lost to New Zealand and England, had their game against Sri Lanka washed and then walloped West Indies.

Players to watch out for:

David Warner: The opener started off the tournament slowly with two slow half-centuries, got his mojo back against Pakistan with a solid ton and having missed out against Sri Lanka will want to get back to his fluent scoring ways against Bangladesh. Warner is the fifth-highest scorer so far in the World Cup and will want to move significantly up on this chart post Thursday.

Shakib Al Hasan: It might have become tiring reading this name under the sub-heading but that's how this campaign has been for Shakib. The all-rounder has been a one-man army for Bangladesh. His scores so far in four innings read 75, 64, 121, 124*. He has looked at his absolute best all through and Bangladesh will desperately hope the same Shakib turns up against Australia as well.

Team News/Availability

Australia: With Stoinis and Coulter-Nile expected to be back to full fitness, Australia are likely to have there full 15 available for selection.

Bangladesh: There are a few niggles in the Bangladesh camp but none too serious that might force a player to sit out of the next game.

Squad:

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa

Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan (VC), Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Mohammad Mithun, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mosaddek Hossain, Abu Jayed
