Australia beats Bangladesh at T20 world cup

5:38 am on 2 April 2014

The Australian cricketers have escaped the embarrassment of a winless World Twenty20, beating Bangladesh by seven wickets in their dead rubber in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh made 154 and in reply Aaron Finch hit 71 as Australia reached their target with 15-balls to spare.

Australia lost their 3 previous matches at the tournament.

The result leaves hosts Bangladesh as the only team to fail to secure a victory in the group stage - a feat even achieved by associate side the Netherlands with their incredible upset of England yesterday.
