Notably, the game was conducted at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham, a venue which is already famous for high-scoring encounters.
Batting first, Australia scored a mammoth 381, with Warner scoring 166 runs off 147 balls, hitting 14 fours and 5 sixes. The legendary leg-spinner is not at all impressed with the way Australia have approached their innings with the bat in the ongoing World Cup. "It is certainly pressure, but we have faith in our boys", Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said. "A player like [Warner], it's very hard".
He further said that although Australia could challenge India and England, they cannot do so without changing their game style.
Warner now owns Australia's two biggest knocks at World Cups and he drew level with Adam Gilchrist on 16 tons, behind only Ricky Ponting and Mark Waugh. That's been a bit annoying but I've just hung in there. Usman Khawaja was unlucky to not complete his century as he got out for 89. In the space of 10 balls he pulled, drove and steered 32 runs, the highlight being an off-balance helicopter shot played while falling over to the off-side, the ball soaring over cover and landing on the boundary rope for six.
Finch looked surprised when Khawaja replaced him in the 21st over, presumably because that left two left-handers at the crease, but the under-fire batsman responded with 89 (72) to finally tighten his grip on the No.3 position.
Finch and Warner added 121 runs for the opening wicket before the former departed at 53. "We've played so much cricket - I know I have over the last 12 months - with a lot of different people, especially the Bangladesh guys", Warner said. I think we need to limit the mistakes.
ESPN Has Brutally Honest New York Knicks Draft Graphic
On Friday morning, the first question he was asked was about shouldering the load for the Knicks as the No. 3 overall pick. Last year, it was to trade down two spots to select Trae Young while also acquiring the No. 10 pick in this year's draft.
In Soumya's main job, he was run out for 10.
It is not that Tamim has not been getting starts in the tournament. Previously, Bangladesh had scored 24 against West Indies in the 38th over.
But Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah went on a careering partnership worth 127, one that blossomed as the afternoon grew golden.
Mahmudullah holed out for 69, from 50 balls, off Nathan Coulter-Nile (2-58) as his fantastically entertaining innings came to a close and Sabbir chopped on next ball, leaving Mushfiqur, with any realistic prospect of victory gone, to try and reach his century. The batsmen are showing their courage.
Shakib arrived and looked good to become the first Bangladeshi to hit six successive fifties in one-day internationals.
