Australia face a make or break Champions Trophy showdown with England after their Group A clash against Bangladesh was abadoned due to rain on Monday.
Steve Smith’s side were chaasing 183 Runs to beat Bangladesh at The Oval when persistent drizzle forced the players from the field.
Having scored 83-1 from 16 overs, Australia only needed to play for four more overs to be eligible to win via the Duckworth-Lewis rule for rain-affected games.
Instead, Smith and his team-mates were reduced to anxiously looking at weather updates and peering upwards for any sign of a break in the slate grey sky.
Unfortunately for Australia, who bowled out Bangladesh for 182, the rain became heavier and the match was called off at 2019 GMT.
Australia will be cursing their luck as they were also frustrated by bad weather when their opening group fixture against New Zealand was abandoned, although on that occasion they were in a less commanding position.
With England, who won their opener against Bangladesh, due to play New Zealand in the next Group A fixture, two-time champions Australia will have to beat the hosts in Birmingham on June 10 to qualify for the semi-finals.
Tamim Iqbal’s 95 was the highlight for Bangladesh, who are winless and face New Zealand in their final group tie.
Despite Iqbal’s best efforts, Mitchell Starc’s spell of four wickets in nine balls ensured Australia had the upper hand before the rain arrived.
Bangladesh scored182/10 in 44.3 Overs

David Warner becomes fastest Australian to reach 4,000 ODI runs

Australian batsman David Warner on Monday June 05,2017 added another feather in his cap by becoming the fastest Aussie batsman to complete 4,000 ODI runs.
The left-hander achieved the feat against Bangladesh in Match 6 of the tournament where he scored an unbeaten 40 runs in a tie marred by rain.
Warner, who took eight years to reach the 4000-run mark, also equalled the record of Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who reached the landmark in 93rd ODI innings like the left-hander.
In the process, Warner broke the Australian record of 102 innings set by Dean Jones 27 years ago. He is now behind only South African Hashim Amla (81 innings) and West Indian Viv Richards (88) on the all-time list.
