Australia showcased their cricketing prowess in a rain-affected Super 8 clash against Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup 2024. Led by Pat Cummins’ hat-trick and David Warner’s blistering half-century, Australia secured a comfortable 28-run victory via the DLS method.

In a match that saw intermittent rain interruptions, Australia’s bowlers, led by Cummins, restricted Bangladesh to a modest total of 140/8 in their allotted 20 overs. Cummins was the star of the show, claiming a hat-trick in the 18th over, becoming only the second Australian bowler to achieve this feat in T20 World Cups.

In response, Australia’s openers, David Warner and Travis Head, launched a blistering attack on the Bangladeshi bowlers, racing to 59/0 in the powerplay overs. Warner, in particular, was in sublime form, scoring an unbeaten 53 off just 34 balls.
