Australia continued their momentum with a brilliant eight-wicket win against Bangladesh in their last World Cup 2023 group-stage game on Saturday, November 11. Mitchell Marsh made the biggest impact by smashing 177* runs off 132 balls to help Australia chase down the 307-run target with ease.
Bangladesh pulled off an impressive total while batting first at Pune’s MCA Stadium after a brilliant fifty from Towhid Hridoy. But Australian batters continued their red-hot form with Marsh scoring his highest ODI score and David Warner and Steve Smith registering crucial fifties to earn the seventh consecutive win in the tournament.
Playing in their last game of the tournament, Shakib Al Hasan-less Bangladesh were forced to bat first. Mustafizur Rahman, Mahedi Hasan and Nasum Ahmed came in for Bangladesh while Steve Smith and Sean Abbott replaced Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc for Australia.
