This is a pathetic display from Aus. Marsh has been horrid all tournament and probably shouldn’t be in the side let alone captain.

We probably need to beat India to make the semis. Jesus

Yeah never liked Marsh captaining over Cummins. Cummins is an IPL captain with an aura about him and you can picture him holding the trophy, not sure you can say that about Marsh.

Credit to Afghanistan, they played their hearts out.

Au’s can beat India. Regardless, you sense a changing of the guard is coming. After this tournament obviously Warner is gone and I suspect Stoinis too along with Wade obviously and maybe even Maxwell, though I reckon he might around until he’s about 40.

We have JFM and Green rotting on the sidelines while he is locked into the side by virtue of being the captain. He's not even bowling atm, so either his hammy injury is lingering or he's not bowling himself intentionally.

Agar was a total passenger today. No idea why he's still in the conversation for any Aus side in any format. Should've probably gone with Ellis.

Aussies have really screwed the pooch this tournament, too much arrogance.

Afghanistan deserve to go through.

Only 115 for Afghanistan. Bangladesh should be able to chase that down right?...

Problem is Bangladesh need to win inside 13 overs for them to qualify so even if they lose wickets they will probably just keep swinging and be all out for 45 or something

I wonder what the calcs will be with the rain too.

Lol at that fake cramp from the Afghan player the second they were ahead on the DLS. Hopefully that inspires the Bangladeshi players to stop trying to slog it and just knock the ball around for the win

Would've been nice to be ahead on DLS obviously and it could be game over now, but think we needed a shortened game for our sake, 35 required with 3 wickets left and Rashid with still 1 to bowl was probably too many.

It will be interesting to see if the cricket gods return the favor for the Aussies after we did the right thing and helped England out.

Looks like India or England are winning the tournament :vom:. That Mahmudullah wicket that looked like it wasn't close to the bat is probably going to cost us
