Top stuff from Warner. At this rate, 350 could be on and that was improbable at one stage. Will be a far tougher chase for Bangladesh than the one against the West Indies

By the end of Australia’s innings, David Warner said that he was trying to make up for last year after he was banned for ball-tampering. “Felt little bit bogged down, kept hitting fielders initially. Built a good partnership with Finchy. And then Uzzy. When you’re deep into your innings like that, you feel fatigued. It’s about trying to make as many runs as you can. Trying to make up for that year off,” he said. As of now, Bangladesh is nearing the score of 220 runs with the loss of four wickets.
