W
OUT! Caught. Starc gets another tail-ender. This is a quick one, 145 kph, in line of the stumps, Mehedi backs away to the leg side and looks to chip this over the on side but only mistimes it straight to mid on. Easy catch for David Warner and Starc has his second.

2
Full and around off, Rahim works it through square leg, Mitchell Starc gives it a good chase from fine leg and dives, stopping the ball cleanly. Two runs taken.

47.2Stoinis to Rahim

4
FOUR! Just over! Full and outside off, Rahim backs away and hits it hard. Just about clears a leaping Aaron Finch at mid off. Moves to 90. That is the only point of interest left in this game now.

1
Short and outside off, slapped through point for a single.

46.6Starc to Hasan

1
Excellent over. Just 6 off this one. Back of a length on off, Mehedi hits it over the bowler's head and gets just a single.

46.5Starc to Hasan

0
Full on middle and leg, Mehedi strokes it towards mid on. Mushfiqur wanted a single but Hasan says no. Warner has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Replays shows had he hit it would not have made a difference as Rahim was in.

45.4Coulter-Nile to Rahman

W
45.4: N Coulter-Nile to S Rahman, OUT! Two in two. Coulter-Nile on a hat-trick now. Good length ball outside off, and for some reason Sabbir was trying to run it down towards third man. The required run-rate is well over 12 but he still goes for this shot. He ends up getting an inside edge which goes onto hit the stumps. In a matter of two balls all the Bangladeshi hearts are broken.

45.3Coulter-Nile to Mahmudullah

W
45.3: N Coulter-Nile to Mahmudullah, OUT! Coulter-Nile gives Australia the big breakthrough and maybe that is the final nail in the coffin for Bangladesh in this chase. Coulter-Nile bangs it in short, Mahmudullah goes for the pull. It makes sweet sound off the bat but he does not time it well and it goes straight to Cummins at deep mid-wicket. The crowd is dejected. Mahmudullah did give some hope but could not quite fulfill the needs. End of a magnificent innings though.

45.2: N Coulter-Nile to Mahmudullah, In the air but safe. Good length ball outside off, Mahmudullah looks to hit it over long on. It does not come off the middle. It goes towards long on. The ball falls short of Starc who lost it in the sun as he dived but was nowhere close.

42.7Cummins to Mahmudullah

WD
WIDE! Another one in this over. Cummins is all over the place in this over. Yorker outside off. It is on the wrong side of the tramline and Kettleborough has to stretch out his arms. 100-run stand comes up between the two.
