World Cup 2019: Highest run scorers and wicket-takers’ list after Australia vs Bangladesh clash


Australia continue to maintain their winning streak in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 following a win against Bangladesh by a margin of 48 runs on Thursday.

Aussie skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and opted to bat.

The outfit posted a total of 381 runs for the loss of five wickets in 50 overs. Opener David Warner was the highest run-scorer with 166 runs off 147 deliveries in an innings comprising of 14 boundaries and five sixes. He was further named as the man of the match for his performance.

Not only this, Warner also became the first batsman to register two 150-plus innings in the history of the Cricket World Cup. Finch, Usman Khawaja were valuable contributors at the other end scoring half-centuries with a quickfire late cameo from Glenn Maxwell.

Bangladesh got off to a bad start during the chase with opener Soumya Sarkar dismissed early for 10. Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan made their presence felt at this stage stitching a partnership of 79 runs to help the outfit gain dominance.

However, they were soon dismissed followed by an ineffective show by Liton Das who was dismissed for 20. A late partnership between Mahmudullah who scored an aggressive 69 and Mushfiqur Rahim (102*) resulted in Bangladesh finishing with a total of 333 runs at the end of their 50 overs.
