The contest, however, concluded in Australia’s win who were searching for a victory to salvage their pride after losing the T20I series 3 down to Bangladesh.

Even after Bangladesh managed to post just 104 runs on the board, Australia had a tough task chasing it. After losing both their openers- Ben McDermott (5) and Matthew Wade (2) early, Daniel Christian (39) dusted off the pressure by smashing five sixes in an over. He looked in fine touch while partnering with Mitchel Marsh (11) before he was removed by Mustafizur Rahman who claimed a wicket-maiden over. Thereafter, Ashton Agar (27) lent some crucial runs to inch the visitors closer to the victory.
