India inflicted one of the worst defeats to Australia in recent times with a margin of 73 runs at Dhaka. Team India goes into the Semi Finals winning all its group matches. Another boost for India before the Semis is the return of form for Yuvraj Singh who rescued them from a precarious position with his knock of 60 from 43 balls.

India from 66 for 4 in 11.3 overs finished with a respectable total of 159 for 7. Surprisingly Australia with all its fancy big hitters collapsed in a heap for 86 all out in 16.2 overs. It was totally an indifferent performance from the Aussie batsmen.

R Ashwin was the Man of the Match for taking 4 for 11 in 3.2 overs. Three of his victims were the destructive trio of Aaron Finch, David Warner and Glenn Maxwell!

Toss and Teams: Australia have won the toss and asked India to bat first at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. It is an inconsequential match for both the sides with India through to the Semis while Aussies out of the tournament.

Australia have made one change with Cameron White coming in for Faulkner. India have made two changes with Ajinkya Rahane and Mohit Sharma replacing Dhawan and Shami.
