    Aaron Finch (Winning Captain): Every time there was a partnership going, there were a few butterflies. We have been pretty consistent. We have guys who have WC experience. Having good partnerships with bat and ball is important. Few of the changes were forced. The spinner was left out as well for a few games. It also depends on the wicket. We always pride ourselves on our fielding and we were quite sloppy despite the wet conditions at the beginning. No excuses there. Not yet thinking about semis. Hopefully, we will secure a place in the top four. Nice to get a couple of boundaries away at the start. The wickets have been good as well and that helps as an opening batsman.

    Mashrafe Mortaza (Losing Captain): I think we gave away 40-50 on the field. Otherwise, it could have been a different chase. Credit to Warner and other Australian batsmen. This is the best we have. A few newcomers have come in. To be honest, we have been positive. Soumya got out run out and Shakib-Tamim did well but 381 was tough. Every game we need to win and wait for others as well.

    David Warner (Man of the Match): Obviously it's a great achievement (to equal Adam Gilchrist's 16 hundreds). For us it's about getting the 2 points and moving onto the next game at Lord's. I think you always keep wickets in hand in ODIs. It's the way we play. We don't intentionally not go after it on purpose. You have to respect the new ball. If you get off to a flier, you go ahead with the momentum you have. The bowlers bowled well to us in patches. It's about knocking it around and try to target 6-8 an over after that in the middle overs. You have to adapt to the conditions, and it's about momentum after that. If you get off to a flier, it's about assessing, one, how many wickets you lost, and two, how to go about the middle overs. It was a little slow, the wicket, but credit to the way Bangladesh fought. Mushfiqur played a fantastic innings. It was a grind for the bowlers, very difficult to get wickets out there, but it was great to get those two points in the end.

    Overs 46 to 50 Roundup! Runs: 33 ; Wickets: 4 ; Bangladesh 333/8

    It all unfolded rather quickly in the end for Bangladesh. Coulter-Nile struck the decisive blows ending all hopes of a late comeback when he sent back Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman off consecutive deliveries in the 46th over.

    After that it Starc who got rid of Mehidy Hasan in the penultimate over and the only bright spot for the Tigers was Mushfiqur Rahim bringing up his first World Cup century. Bangladesh can take heart from this defeat though as they managed to reach 333 against a strong Australian unit.

    Australia beat Bangladesh by 48 runs.
