Live: Aussie bowlers blitz Tigers for 182

Australia’s bowlers have given their side every opportunity to beat Bangladesh in the Champions Trophy as they as restricted the Mashrafe Mortaza led side to 182 all out.

Having been elected to bat first at the Oval, Bangladesh were dismissed for 182 in 44 overs, despite another excellent innings from Tamim Iqbal.

After hitting 128 in the previous match against England, Tamim was the main man once again, but this time he lacked support and was unable to stop Australia taking control.

Other two top-order batsmen Imrul and Soumya once again disappointed the Bangladesh team management as they went back to the pavilion very early.

Moises Henriques trapped Mushfiqur Rakhim lbw for nine before the dangerous Shakib Al Hasan, dropped by Glenn Maxwell on 13, was leg before to Travis Head for 29.

Adam Zampa who is playing his first match in the ICC Champions Trophy grabbed a wicket with only his second ball of the tournament as Sabbir Rahman was caught at point by Australia skipper Steve Smith. The young leggy grabbed a second in his next over when Mahmudullah dragged one on to his stumps to leave Bangladesh in trouble at 6/153.

Afterwards the story was all about Mitchel Starc. He ended Tamim’s vigil at the crease – the first of four wickets in eight balls as he ripped through the tail to finish with figures of 4-29.
