Zampa five-for and aggressive batting give Australia massive NRR boost in big win over Bangladesh


Australia’s 82-ball win is the biggest T20I victory between two full-member teams in terms of balls remaining

Australia 78 for 2 (Finch 40) beat Bangladesh 73 all out (Zampa 5-19, Hazlewood 2-8, Starc 2-21) by eight wickets

A five-wicket haul from Adam Zampa bowled Bangladesh out for 73, and Australia’s batters then razed down the target in 7.4 overs to not only earn two points but also gain a massive NRR boost that now sees them leapfrog past South Africa into second place. To go past South Africa on the points table, Australia needed to reach 74 in 8.1 overs, but backed by Aaron Finch’s 20-ball 40, they did so three balls earlier.
