Warner key in Aussie win
David Warner scored his second century of the Cricket World Cup to help guide Australia to a 48-run victory against Bangladesh.
Having made three figures earlier in the tournament against Pakistan, the opener took advantage of the small Trent Bridge pitch to score 166 off 147 balls.
The 32-year-old was ably abetted by Usman Khawaja, who came in at his more natural number three position to notch 89 that, despite 3-58 from Soumya Sarkar, allowed the Baggy Greens to post 381-5 from their 50 overs.
Bangladesh's reply to what was a World Cup record target got off to a poor start when Soumya went for just 10 but fellow opener Tamim Iqbal made 62 and Mahmudullah 69.
However, Mushfiqur Rahim was the star of the Bangladeshi innings as he scored 102 off 97 balls.
They eventually fell short in their pursuit by 48 runs, a result that leaves them fifth in the table, with the world champions third.
Speaking afterwards, Aussie captain Aaron Finch admitted there were times when he was worried by Mushfiqur's form but, following a match in which three of his bowlers took two wickets each, he feels his team are heading in the right direction.
Finch said: "Absolutely, every time a team starts to get a partnership going, especially experienced players, but I thought our boys held their nerve pretty well.
"A couple of changes were forced, so it's just toying with ideas and it also relies on the surface. All in all we've got a really good idea going forward.
"It's going to be a fight right to the end and hopefully secure one of those four spots."
