AUS vs BAN Super 8 Match Highlights | Points Table and Match Details: Tournament heavyweights Australia moved closer to the knockout stages of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup with a crucial win over Bangladesh in a rain-affected encounter at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.

The match was notable for Pat Cummins’ brilliant hat-trick, a quickfire half-century and being interrupted by rain multiple times.

Australia showed their dominance by beating Bangladesh in a match affected by weather interruptions and securing a crucial win using the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method.

AUS vs BAN: Bangladesh Innings

Bangladesh elected to bat first but struggled to gain momentum due to disciplined bowling from Australia. Mitchell Starc dismissed Tanji Hasan on the initial strike, making Starc surpass Lasith Malinga to become the highest wicket-taker in the men’s World Cup.

Despite the early setbacks, Liton Das and captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto held the innings together and took Bangladesh to 39/1 by the end of the powerplay. Shanto’s aggressive batting raised some hope, but Adam Zampa’s tight bowling halted Bangladesh’s lead by dismissing Das in the ninth over.

There was more collapse throughout the innings, with important wickets losing at critical times. Bangladesh reached a decent 140/8 thanks to Tauheed Hridaya’s 40 off 28 balls, but Cummins’ hat-trick in the last overs limited their total. In Australia’s bowling attack, Cummins’ closing numbers of 3/29 were very significant.

AUS vs BAN: Australia’s chase

Australia started aggressively, with openers David Warner and Travis Head scoring quickly, reaching 60/0 by the end of the powerplay. Warner’s explosive batting laid a strong foundation, ensuring Australia dominated despite rain interruptions.

After the first rain delay, Bangladesh lost Head for 31 and Mitchell Marsh for low scores, giving them a small ray of hope. However, Australia crossed the 100-run mark thanks to Glenn Maxwell’s quickfire knock and Warner, but the game had to be halted for the final time due to rain.

Australia’s score at the time of the interruption was 28 runs more than the DLS par score, giving them a comprehensive win.
