T20 World Cup : Australia defeat Bangladesh in rain-affected match

Sports Desk

Australia on Friday defeated Bangladesh by 28 runs in a rain-affected Super 8 match played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.

Australia restricted Bangladesh to 140-8 in 20 overs after a hat-trick from star pacer Pat Cummins, who bagged figures of 3-29 in four overs.

This was the first Super 8 match for both sides in the tournament.

Mitchell Starc made early inroads after Australia captain Mitchell Marsh won the toss and opted to bowl.

However, Cummins struck thrice in his last two overs while Adam Zampa also bagged a couple to help Australia restrict Bangladesh to a below-par total. Australia made two changes to their side for their first game of the Super Eight phase, restoring Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood to the team.

Earlier, Australia have won the toss and elected to field first.
