In the match between Bangladesh and Australia, The Tigers, batting first, put 306 runs on the board, their highest total in this World Cup.
Once again, Australian bowling had to rely on Adam Zampa for wickets, as the wrist-spinner took a two-wicket haul and now has the most wickets (22) for Australia by a spinner in a single edition.

Other than Zampa, Australia also relied on Marnus Labuschagne’s fielding and produced two scintillating run-outs. Out of the two, one run-out that took over the internet was of Mahmudullah’s, where Marnus produced a Johnty Rhodes-like run-out.
During the 36th over of Bangladesh’s innings, Josh Hazlewood bowled a length ball which Towhid Hridoy hit towards cover and ran for a single. Labuschagne chased the ball and picked it up using one hand, and then produced an under-arm direct hit at the striker’s end. Mahmudullah tried to make it to his crease by making a desperate dive, but unfortunately, he was found short of his crease. Here is the video of the dismissal.
The run-out was only inspired by Jonty, as the legendary South African fielder inspired the cricketing world after he ran Inzamam-ul-Haq out in the 1992 World Cup.
