Australia beat Bangladesh today by 10 wickets in the Super 8 phase in the World Cup at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua and Barbuda.

This was Bangladesh's first game in the Super 8 stage, which they entered pointless after defeat to fellow group qualifiers Sri Lanka. Australia already led the Super 8 group with 4 points on the board, thanks to their victory over the West Indies and group stage win over South Africa.

The match was reduced to a 22 over game due to delays from the wet outfield.

Glenn McGrath became the leading wicket taker in World Cup history with his 3 wickets here, taking him past Wasim Akram.


Toss: Australia won, and elected to field first.
