Aussie cricket contingent safe after London attacks
Australia's opening game against New Zealand was also halted by rain while Bangladesh stay in contention, just, despite their opening loss to England. According to the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which sets the laws of the game, at least 20 overs should be completed in each innings in a limited-over match to produce a result.
The Australian bowlers received a severe thrashing at the hands of New Zealand batsmen in their previous game before rain gods intervened and the match was abandoned. "The same thing happened with New Zealand in the last match when they were in a commanding position and Australia got lucky to seal a point".
Way back in 2005, the Australians were on the receiving end as Bangladesh beat them by 5 wickets in an ODI in Cardiff, causing one of the greatest upsets of recent times.
Bangladesh lost the tournament's opening match to England at the same venue on Thursday, despite a century from Tamim Iqbal, and can not afford a second defeat.
The Duckworth/Lewis (D/L) method was applied in the rain-affected match and while chasing 289 runs in 41 overs under D/L, Pakistan got bowled out for just 164 runs, falling short of 124 runs.
A frustrated Steve Smith believes more could have been done by The Oval ground staff after rain denied his side victory over Bangladesh.
The outcome means both Australia and Bangladesh were awarded a point for their efforts.
Left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Starc was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up four wickets for 29 runs.
"For us it's to get that win to get through to that next stage. but also to find some little weak points in some of their players going into the summer as well".
Warner and Smith were reluctant to leave the field and felt they could have played through the rain for at least another two overs. Mashrafe conceded that the balance of the side was something they were likely to address, with Mehedi or Sunzamul Islam perhaps likeliest to come in given the game will take place on a used pitch (the same as that for South Africa's win over Sri Lanka on Saturday). "We knew it's going to be hard playing against Australia, they bowled really well and only Tamim Iqbal was able to perform apart from all the other batsmen", he said.
A classy 95 from opener Tamim Iqbal held together the Bangladesh innings before he became Starc's first victim, with Josh Hazlewood taking a running catch in the deep.
