Earlier, Australia's destructive opening batsman David Warner hit a scintillating 166 off 147 balls after skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to bat first against Bangladesh. The Southpaw was dismissed by Soumya Sarkar. However, Warner registered the highest individual score in the ICC CWC 2019 so far.
Warner also went past Bangaldesh's Shakib Al Hasan in terms of highest number of runs in the tournament. Warner is also the leading run scorer in the ICC CWC 2019 with 447 runs to his name. After the win against Bangladesh, Australia are now at the top of the points table ahead of New Zealand, England and India. Bangladesh are on the fifth spot in the points table following this loss. A total of 714 runs were scored in this match, the most in any match in this world cup so far. The fans in the stadium surely got their tickets worth.
