KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Smith's team had to endure frustration after rain spoiled Monday's showdown with Bangladesh.

New Zealand have won six of their last seven matches against England in 50-over world tournaments (World Cup and Champions Trophy).

Australia might have to beat England on Saturday to advance to the semifinals.

"It's just being given the time to get some consistency back".

In the circumstances, Australia could have done with their batsmen being in good form before the crunch encounter with their old rivals. "So it's nice to come out and rip in and know we have to win and play our best cricket heading into the back-end of the tournament". I think every team is feeling that. During this period, Pakistan had to bat second 27 times while reaching the target of over 250 runs; however, Pakistan did it successfully only 5 times, recording a mere 18.52 winning percentage.

Tamim Iqbal made 95 in Bangladesh's 182 all out as Mitchell Starc took four wickets in nine balls. "We got a bit lucky and the Australians were a bit unfortunate".

"I'm preparing for that, but I'm prepared to play every game". But the umpires are there to make a decision. "I was happy to keep batting through the rain", Smith added.

"I think the general feeling is that the wickets here will slow up in the back end of the tournament", Zampa said prior to the tournament.

With this being one of only two day-night games in this year's Champions Trophy, it will be interesting to see what the captains decide to do if they win the toss.

"For us it's a must-win game".

The abandonment means Australia have two points to their name from two Group A matches, while Bangladesh have just one following their opening loss to England and would have been eliminated with a defeat in London.

Their captain Mashrafe Mortaza was unapologetic for his side's lucky escape, pointing to Australia avoiding defeat in similar circumstances against New Zealand.

"For us it's to get that win to get through to that next stage. but also to find some little weak points in some of their players going into the summer as well".

"Disappointing not to get a result but we can't do much about the weather", he said. Memories of Cardiff Australia were the victims of one of the all-time great upsets when Bangladesh beat them by five wickets in a one-day worldwide in Cardiff in 2005. Bangaldesh are winless after falling to England while Australia's game against New Zealand was washed out.
