After being knocked down by India, defending champions Australia recorded a sensational comeback in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament which saw them winning three games on the trot. Batting first, Australia smashed Bangladeshi bowlers to post 381 on the board. While an ever improving Bengali side fought valiantly, but they fell short by 48 runs as the daunting total was always looking out of their reach.
The game which installed Australian team at the top of the table was all about David Warner’s belligerence who smashed another century in the tournament. However, it would be unwise to ignore the contribution of proficient batsman Usman Khawaja who joined hands with Warner to form a 192-run match defining partnership for the second wicket.
Registering a sublime half-century which was scored at a brisk strike-rate of 123.61, the 32-year old amassed 89 runs using the aid of 10 fours. This knock allowed the Islamabad born to produce his best World Cup innings till date. Australia’s top four seems to be in good shape as they head towards the business end of the competition.
