    Warner c&b Shakib 17 (Aus 119-4)

    Don't write this one off just yet. Somehow David Warner has hit a full toss straight back at Shakib Al Hasan, with the spinner taking a very smart catch. Australia still favourites, but another wicket would have this game right in the balance.  

  2. Aus 119-3

    Glenn Maxwell, the Big Show, is the new man, being made to sniff some leather by Al-Amin. Very nice stuff by Al-Amin, wh mixes his pace well. Four runs and a wicket from the over. Bangladesh need a few more like that.


    Khawaja b Al-Amin 58 (Aus 115-3)

    How's this happened? Usman Khawaja, looking more comfortable than a bear in a onesie, has somehow missed one. Walking across to Al-Amin Hossain, he gets too far across and loses his leg stump. How bizarre. Still hope for the Tigers?  

  4. Aus 115-2 (target 157)

    David Warner is still sporting a questionable moustache, like when Baldrick balanced a slug on his top lip in Blackadder Goes Forth. He pounces on a Mahmudullah long hop to pull for four, the steps back to brutalise a maximum over long-off. Down to an even chase now, a run a ball.

    Samuel Lock: So we're well into 2016, times are changing, but England fans still have Shane Watson failures to enjoy

  6. Aus 98-2 (need 59 from 48 balls)

    Looking again, Smith actually got nutmegged, somehow letting the ball between his legs. Megs! David Warner is the new man. 


    Smith b Mustafizur 14 (Aus 95-2)

    Bowled him! A full pint! Is that the spark of magic Bangladesh need? Mustafizur Rahman has castled Steven Smith, the Aussie captain looking totally bewildered as he walks off. Smith gets too far across and loses his leg peg. That's woken the crowd up...  

  8. Aus 94-1 (need 63 from 54 balls)

    It just feels like this game is already decided. Australia's chase is under complete control in the Bengaluru night, the rate managed, the ball not really threatening. It would be some turnaround if Bangladesh can pull it out from here.

  9. Aus 89-1

    Steve Smith must be a nightmare to bowl to. Or simply be around. He just won't keep still. Down the track to Sajib, straight sixer. 

  10. 50 for Usman Khawaja

    Aus 82-1

    I'm being chastised by my gaffer for comparing Usman Khawaja to David Gower. Apparently it's cricketing blasphemy. Either way, he goes to 50 with a cut for four off Shakib. The likes of Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers might have butchered it so far in this tournament, but Khawaja has been the most pleasing on the eye.

  11. Aus 74-1

    On the Aussie balcony, coach Darren Lehmann and selector Mark Waugh sit side by side. There's some runs there. And a few beers.

  12. Aus 72-1 (Khawaja 46 from 33)

    I'm really struggling to come to terms with the change in Usman Khawaja. It used to be like he was batting with someone else's arms. Now he's David Gower. A back-foot drive off Shakib is liquid chocolate, all warm and gooey.

  13. Aus 66-1

    Captain Steve Smith the new man for Australia. They're still in charge of this chase, but the wicket gives the Tigers a tiny smidge of hope.

  14. WICKET

    Watson run out 21 (Aus 62-1)

    Gone! Shane Watson will be livid, or, at least more livid than he usually is. He's called for a second, but runs like a man in treacle, not even bothering to dive. An excellent throw from Sabbir Rahman has him inches short. Five years ago, Shane...  

  15. Third umpire

    Aus 62-0

    The way things are going, a run out looks the only way Bangladesh will get a wicket. My hunch is that Shane Watson is OK, though...

  16. Aus 60-0 (need 97 from 78 balls)

    The ball went so high, Australia could have run two. In the end, Khawaja almost got run out just taking a single. Bangladesh ring the changes, bringing on debutant left-arm tweaker Saqlain Sajib. "Bowling, bowling," is the cry from behind the wicket, until Watson helps one over the mid-wicket fence. Catch it in the crowd! 

  17. Dropped catch

    Aus 52-0

    It's a calamity, it really is. Watson gets a leading edge, miles up, so high into the sky that the ball comes down with snow on it. It goes nowhere, surely someone in the ring can catch this with their eyes closed? Inexplicably, mid-on Mashrafe doesn't move, meaning Mithun has to dive from mid-wicket. He gets nowhere near it. It's nearly hit Mashrafe on the head. Mustafizur was already celebrating. Awful stuff.

  18. Aus 50-0

    You've got to feel for Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza. He's had two bowlers suspended, his best batsman is ill and now Watson and Khawaja are toying with his attack. Lovely from Watson, deftly late-cutting Mustafizur for four. Mustafizur holds his side, the injury he had before this tournament. I bet it wouldn't hurt if he was a on a hat-trick...

  19. Aus 44-0 (0-0-4-4-4-1)

    As ever, you feel like Bangladeshi hopes rest on the shoulders of Shakib Al Hasan. He's on with his left-arm tweakers, but instantly eased through leg side for four by Khawaja, who then lofts over cover for another four. Wonderful timing, like Dave Grohl on the drums. A sweep brings a third straight boundary. Is this really the same Usman Khawaja?

  20. Aus 31-0 (target 157)

    The left-arm pace of Mustafizur Rahman, returning after injury, is into the act, bowling with decent gas. When he appeals against Khawaja, all of the Tigers fans in Bengaluru are up, screaming with arms in the air. Going well down, though.
