Sydney, Apr 2: Australia has finally registered a victory in the World Twenty20 tournament in Bangladesh after they defeated the host side by seven wickets in quick time on Tuesday at Dhaka.
Australian batsmen chased down Bangladesh’s 5-153 with 15 balls to spare, in a saving grace for the team at what could rank as their worst performance in a global limited overs tournament especially given their triumphs in the Ashes and South Africa.
According to News.com.au, David Warner (48 off 35 balls) was at his punishing best and fellow opener Aaron Finch (71 off 45 balls) joined in the run-flurry to ensure Australia coasted to an easy win in the dead-rubber match.
Australia made the decision to go with no frontline spinners, dropping young legspinner James Muirhead and again leaving out veteran spinner Brad Hogg, meaning that the 43-year-old bowler has almost certainly played his last match for Australia in what has been a long and colourful career, the report added.
