Australia edged past Bangladesh by 48 runs in what was a first completed ODI between the two sides in more than eight years. David Warner’s 166-run knock laid the platform for the Aussies to finish with 381/5 in their 50 overs. Bangladesh did go well in the chase but were never on track with the required run rate. Mushfiqur Rahim remained unbeaten on 102 while Tamim Iqbal (62) and Mahmudullah (69) scored fifties. The closest they came was 82 needing from last five overs but could only finish with 333/8.

All the statistical highlights from Australia’s 48-run win over Bangladesh at the Trent Bridge:

A high-scoring game at a high-scoring venue:

714 – A total of 714 runs were scored by both the sides in this game; the highest aggregate in a World Cup game. This went past the 688 runs aggregated by the 2015 edition game between Australia and Sri Lanka in Sydney.


3 – This is the 3rd time Nottingham has produced an ODI with 700+ runs. A total of 720 and 719 runs were scored during the England-Australia ODI in 2015 and England-Pakistan ODI in 2019 respectively. England recorded the top two team totals in ODI format during those two games.

The Nottingham’s Trent Bridge thus became the first venue to witness three ODIs with an aggregate of 700+ runs. The Johannesburg’s Wanderers Stadium is the only other venue to host two ODIs with 700+ runs.


Warner gets yet another big century:

1 – David Warner became the first player in the history of the World Cup to score two 150+ scores. Warner scored 178 against Afghanistan in 2015 World Cup at the WACA.

A record total for Bangladesh:

333/8 – The total of 333/8 by Bangladesh is their highest total in ODI cricket. They surpassed their total of 330/6 that came against South Africa in their first game of this tournament.


333/8Bangladesh’s total of 333/8 is the 2nd highest World Cup total for any team in a defeat. England finished with 334/9 at this very venue two weeks ago against Pakistan and fell 15 runs short of the target.


Starc and his love for World Cup:

14 – Mitchell Starc has picked up at least one wicket in all 14 World Cup matches he played. This is the longest streak for any bowler with at least one scalp surpassing Glenn McGrath’s 13 between 2003 and 2007.


37 – The 37 wickets in the CWC for Starc are the 2nd most by an Australia in the World Cups. Glenn McGrath leads the list with 71 wickets. Starc went past Brett Lee in this game as the former Aussie pacer had 35 CWC wickets from 17 games.


Bowlers getting half-centuries:

11 – A total of 11 players in this game conceded 50 and more runs – 6 from Bangladesh and 5 from Australia. This is only the 2nd ODI where as many as 11 players conceded 50+ runs. The 2018 ODI between Scotland and England in Edinburgh also witnessed 11 bowlers conceding 50 and more runs.


Shakib sets a new benchmark for Bangladesh:

425 – Shakib Al Hasan became the first Bangladesh player to aggregate 400 runs in a series/tournament in International cricket. Habibul Bashar’s 379 runs during a 3-match Test series against Pakistan in 2003 are the previous most runs scored by a Bangladesh player in any International series. In ODIs, the previous most was Mahmudullah’s 365 runs during the 2015 World Cup.


Yet another 300+ total for Australia:

4 – Australia registered their 4th consecutive 300+ total in this World Cup. This is the only the 3rd time a team has scored more than 300 runs in four or more successive innings at the World Cup. Australia had five in a row during the 2007 edition while Sri Lanka also recorded four consecutive 300+ totals in the previous edition.
