Maxwell quite rightly furious with Khawaja there, really sold him down the river.

A bit of mild relief for Bangladesh, but Australia should still get 400 from here.

Khawaja compounding that error by edging behind off his next ball. Soumya has an improbable 3-for, and now 400 looks a bit more of a stretch.

Well yes but if you're not going to run it's usually advisable to not shout "YES!" and run halfway down the pitch before stopping Wink

Momentum shift - after the carnage, from 46.1 to 47.1 overs, 2 runs and 3 wickets.
This is oen of the issues with leaving the acceleration so late - a wicket goes and the new batsman has to just go for it from ball 1

Really? Is it raining so hard that one over would make that much difference to the pitch (it's not as though the ball condition will be that important).

It looks like a well-timed innings from Australia this. If they curtail the innings they'll probably round it up to 380 off 50, and then work out what Bangladesh need from there (if their reply is shortened).

Bangladesh will struggle to get 380 against this Australian attack. Even if the pitch is better and the boundaries are smaller, the bowlers will have greater skill, more variety and better plans than the ones they faced against the West Indies.

Australia to come back out and bat the last over, before a 30 minute interval. Cricket.

Khawaja almost literally played Root's innings from the other day and Vaughan is not happy with it but was absolutely creaming himself on Tuesday. What a clown of a commentator

Khawaja actually scored an extra run in 3 fewer deliveries - so if anything it was better. I guess the only difference is Root came in slightly earlier. But otherwise near enough identical.

Vaughan isn't my favourite commentator, not by a long way. I've heard he is involved with a PR company and his commentary promotes the players who are represented by this company, but I can't speak for the validity of that claim.

I thought Khawaja played very nicely TBH. Took a few balls to get in, eased to 50, and then hit the accelerator.

I would argue that perhaps Australia could have hit the accelerator a few overs earlier, but they seem to prefer the players coming in to be able to simply go for it from the off.

Vaughan was a fine cricketer, but he's a fairly rubbish commentator/pundit.

Well there was a predetermined theory that he should only play as an opener, its very prevalent amongst the ex player pundits. apparently Warnes been very vocal on it. When he came in things did really slow down and they have a very low scoring 10 over period at a time when they might have looked to chip along. Hes also never going to be able to score in the Maxwell did at the death. 
The pundits though were left looking rather stupid when Smith got out straight away in that flurry of wickets and suddenly they were running out of batsmen. 
They wouldnt have got this total without Warner and Khawaja hanging around, nor without Maxwells charge. You cant deny that he didnt contribute strongly and perform well. 
The argument seems to be that if they play England or India on this type of wicket theyll need 400 and Khawaja wont get them there. 
The India game is being cited where they played to hang on to wickets and then relied on Maxwell late. They fell well short. This score was against a poor attack on an easy scoring ground.

Bright enough start from Bangladesh. We know from the WI game that they're not going to die wondering. I think 380 will be quite a bit beyond them mind, but for tipping game purposes I'd like to see them get within 50 Very Happy

Oh goodness, a dreadful mix-up sees Soumya run out by a direct hit from Finch at mid-on. Tamim hits it towards him, wants the run and commits, Soumya not interested, but seeing how far down Tamim has come decides to attempt the run, by which time Tamim has turned back. Soumya also turns back, but it's too late, and he's way gone. All a bit comedic.

I think your last paragraph is almost irrelevant, Goose. Your'e still living two weeks ago... forget the past. Australia are steadily rising again.

England made a similar score (386) on a postage stamp sized ground at Cardiff. Not too worried about Australia's effort today at all. They did well.
The main thing is to build up the innings first with wickets intact. Then take it from there. Australia is deliberately avoiding the recent England trend of coming out all guns blazing... which carries much more risk...  especially if the plan goes wrong. If you look at the Cardiff match again; there's not much difference between England's 67 runs after 10 overs and Australia's 60 runs today. It's insignificant as I say above.

I think the key to setting the big scores against the better teams isn't the first powerplay. You'll probably have faced the main two strike bowlers with slips in for at least 8 of those overs and the wickets column is more important. 40-0 is better than 80-3 here.

What matters is keeping the run rate going against the change bowlers in the middle without losing lots of wickets. Today I think Australia did that fairly well, not losing the second wicket until the acceleration in the last 10 while Rubel in particular took a bit of a hammering. However there was a slow down after the Finch wicket which went on a bit longer than they would have wanted, and they could be looking at 400 if they'd picked the pace up more quickly.

Good from Shakib. If Bangladesh are to get anywhere near this they really can't allow Maxwell to whittle through a few tidy overs here, and he takes charge with a couple of boundaries straight down the ground.

Decent rate but it feels like they are a touch under. They do need to get at the change bowling for sure.
Holding on to hope of what happened against WI when they went from looking behind on rate and wickets and suddenly exploded to win with a lot to spare.
They need some of that magic to chase this down.

That's probably the end of any realistic hope TBH. Shakib gone, and it's a rather tame dismissal, trying to whip Stoinis through the leg-side, and getting a leading-edge straight to mid-off, where Warner takes the easiest of easy catches. Shame as Shakib was once again looking in excellent touch.

Shakib has gone. A lot on Tamim now to really bat through and a big ton to break the back of this chase.

If Tahir had have reviewed the Williamson dismissal yesterday it would still be open.

With Tamim out that's probably that for this game though.

It's been pretty inevitable after the first 3 rounds. I'm just clinging to a fragment of pretence.

The gap between these top sides and the middling ones seems huge.

-Today's game a case in point that when chasing team gets too far back like 12, 14 and 16 RPO with many over left
Then te defnding team's intensity drops, they start bowlling safe , put it there, even if they do 8 to 10 RPO, its deemed OK because RRR is further building up

and the chasing team gets too many cheap runs and finish with an inflated score......Aus did this to India ( thru Carey).....and Pak thru Imad wasim when RRR was 26.

-Aus's batting & balance is sorted with stoinis back....the issue they need to reveiw if Nile & Zampa are their best 3rd seamer and spinner.
Probably not in my view.

Good effort from Bangladesh, but it always looked like being quite a bit beyond them, and so it proved. Nice century from Mushfiqur, getting Bangladesh to within 50 runs and thus giving me an extra five points in the tipping comp Very Happy.

Australia will be happy with their batting effort, but will still have a few concerns over their bowling, which seems to rely a lot on Starc and Cummins. Zampa didn't bowl particularly well again, and you do wonder if they'll give Lyon a go in the next game to see what he can do. They also had a bit of an off day in the field, a few misfields and missed a couple of chances.

Bangladesh's batting has certainly come along. They've made now three scores of well over 300 (including 320 vs WI in 43 overs). Their bowling is a step down though: their seamers aren't that great, and Shakib hasn't bowled all that well, while Mehedi has been solid but not threatened to run through sides. Their fielding has also been inconsistent.

The semis continue to look more and more set in stone by the day.

Okay let's play out some MMO scenarios for our English fan friend here

Aus has 3 games in hand, on 10 points and needs one more win to make it to semis...but wait...their 3 games are

1-England, the greatest side today by far & not beatable by even a world 11...so Aus stands no chance

2-NZ the other strong team and Forumers' favorite...will beat them with an E ( Easily)

3-And then SA will rise and shine & with nothing to lose, knock out Australia
Yahoo Yahoo Yahoo

Not a bad effort from Bangladesh, but didn't ever really threaten to get near the total. Those semi finals really do look locked down, the interesting games left are probably the ones where the probable semi finalists face each other and the chance to get a mental edge on a knockout stage opponent.

Who has actually said England are the greatest team ever? You clearly live in some alternative universe where you see things on here that don't actually exist. That post is literally pathetic

The chasing team gets a higher score by not scoring runs.
I think that one was worse VTR

Preview of Today's Game:

The greatest team on the planet vs. Lowly Lankans
Swann says in CI's screaming headlines that Eng believe they can score 500

& then bowl them out for 200 ( because the not so great Aussie bowled them out for 240 so Eng definitely will do better)
Coming up Scorching 300 run win today

Give it a rest KPF. We were all asked to lay off you, and took that on board, but you won't let it lie and move on. Utterly immature and pathetic post yet again

What Swann actually said is that the England team believe they can at some point, not that they will or should for this game. I doubt they will push for that kind of score here, they just dont need to. Sri Lanka dont have the batting or bravery to chase 400, gunning for a ridiculous score and collapsing is the only way they are likely to lose this. If they bat first expect a measured attack early as we have seen from pretty much every innings and team at this cup. If they bat second they wont get the opportunity to chase 500.
As is being argued for Aus in the khawaja debate the real monster scores are likely to be chased in the games between the big 4 and the knockouts. High 300s might not be enough for those.
The Sri Lankan captain said they plan to limit England to under 300. It appears they have been practising lots of slow ball variations. 50 overs of wobblers.
It could be horrible to watch.

Ohh so you don't believe this Eng side can score 500?
Or their bowling is better than that of Aus
