AUS vs BD Highlights 6-20-2024

Watch cricket video highlights of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 forty-fourth match between Australia vs Bangladesh. Venue of the match will be North Sound.

Adam Zampa spearheaded the attack throughout Bangladesh’s middle overs, and Australia made a decisive start to the Super Eight with a hat-trick from Pat Cummins at the death. Apart from a partnership of 58 runs between Litton Das and Najmul Hossain Shanto at the second wicket, Bangladesh failed to establish any sustained moments of dominance at the batting.

They collapsed to 140 for 8 from their 20 overs as a result. It was always going to be hard to defend, even with the slower North Sound pitch that helped the spinners. In the first 6.5 overs, Australia’s David Warner and Travis Head combined to smash 65, and even though Bangladesh’s spinners forced their way in after that, Australia was never really challenged. Play was stopped by rains while they were 28 runs ahead (squalls had been blowing through all evening).

Bangladesh was in a reasonable position to up the tempo at 57 for 1 at the conclusion of the eighth over, with two set batsmen already in. However, they faced one of the most astute middle-overs players available. Litton was bowled when Zampa slipped in a quick arm ball that he was unable to smash with his sweep stroke. Later, Zampa removed Bangladesh’s highest scorer of the night by hitting Shanto in front of the stumps with a quick legbreak. He finished his four overs with figures of 2 for 24 overall.

Bangladesh managed to score just 23 runs in the final three overs. It was mostly because of Cummins’s wicket-taking that Australia dominated that part of the match. Outside off, back-of-a-length deliveries delivered his first two wickets. Attempting to drive a ball past midwicket, Mahmudullah ultimately found himself bottom-edging the ball into his stumps. Despite his attempt to push it up, Mahedi Hasan could only muster a nice catch to deep third.

The hitter just managed to sweep the ball over the shoulder to short fine leg on the first delivery of the last over, which was a slower, lengthier ball bowled by Cummins than by Towhid Hridoy. Although it was just their second in a World Cup, this was Australia’s fourth hat trick in this format. Brett Lee made the first one in 2007, likewise against Bangladesh.

Australia’s openers were quick to establish themselves. Warner used a reverse sweep to knock Mahedi Hasan’s opening ball of the innings for four runs. However, they really got going in Taskin Ahmed’s fourth over, as both batsmen clubbed consecutive boundaries before Head lofted a short delivery into the bleachers past cow corner. 59 were pillaged during the powerplay. Despite taking two wickets in his opening two overs against Bangladesh, legspinner Rishad Hossain, Head, and Warner had Australia far ahead of the needed pace.
