Australia chasing 183 victory target for win vs Australia

Police at the scene at Southwark Bridge in London

Australia were cruising in the Group A Champions Trophy clash at 1-83, after bowling the Tigers out for 182, when light rain started to fall in the 16th over.

It was nearly exactly 12 years ago, on June 18, 2005, that Bangladesh faced Australia - who then, as now, were coming off a victorious World Cup - having won only two ODI matches out of 77 against top-eight ranked opponents, and never having defeated Australia.

"For us it's to get that win to get through to that next stage. but also to find some little weak points in some of their players going into the summer as well". England, on the other hand, are the only participating team which has never won the title. "I haven't really read into anything else that's happened".

"They have that win on the board and are pretty confident with the way they are playing cricket".

Tamim Iqbal's 95 was the only solace for Bangladesh with the opener falling just short of scoring back-to-back hundreds for the second time in two years.

Starc rocketed back to form after a lacklustre first-up effort against New Zealand, scorching the Bangladesh tail-end with searing pace and accuracy and re-discovering his pinpoint yorker to take four wickets in just nine balls.

"I thought all our bowlers were a lot better today". We hit some good areas early on and challenged the defence of the Bangladeshi batsmen.

The result was a result in a blow to both teams' hopes of reaching the semi-finals, but it may boost New Zealand's chances to go through from the same pool.

"Following last night's incident all team hotels went into lockdown and teams, match officials and staff were all quickly accounted for", the global governing body said. "But the umpires are there to make a decision and I think drinks was at the end of that over, which probably didn't help".

Mortaza feels that they were lucky in Monday's match as Australia dominated them in every department, he said, "It is a part of the game and you can't do anything about it". "It's disappointing not to get a win but can't do much about the weather and we can't control that".

Apart from ace pacer Mustafizur Rehman, all the bowlers looked below par, leaving Captain Mashrafe Mortaza fairly concerned.

However, they've got company at the top of the tree, with the defending champions, India, signalling their determination to retain their trophy with a record-breaking demolition of Pakistan at Edgbaston.
