Glenn Maxwell’s Energetic Celebration After Dismissing Rishad Hossain in AUS vs BAN T20 World Cup 2024 Game

In a rain-affected Super Eights match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua, Australia defeated Bangladesh by 28 runs using the Duckworth/Lewis (DLS) method.

Dominant Bowling Performance

Australia soon reaped the rewards of their decision to field first, limiting Bangladesh to 140/8 in their allocated 20 overs. Senior pacer Pat Cummins, who recorded the first hat-trick of the event with figures of 3/29, was the standout performer. Australia’s supremacy was established by his ability to strike at critical times, which destroyed Bangladesh’s middle order. With two wickets taken, leg-spinner Adam Zampa gave vital support, and captain Najmul Hossain Shanto (41) and Towhid Hridoy (40) of Bangladesh produced strong innings.

Early hits that were Significant and Glenn Maxwell’s Ebullient joy

Mitchell Starc took early wickets to remove Tanzid Hasan in the opening over, signalling the start of Australia’s dominance. As Australia’s bowlers took advantage of the circumstances and applied constant pressure, this early breakthrough set the tone for Bangladesh’s innings. Wickets kept falling after that, consistently.

Rishad Hossain was removed by Glenn Maxwell in the tenth over, adding to Bangladesh’s misery. But Zampa at short third man caught the leading edge that Rishad could only muster. The most notable aspect of the match was Maxwell’s response. He erupted in jubilation upon claiming Rishad Hossain’s wicket, displaying his unwavering will and eagerness to perform well for his club.

Australia’s Victorious Chase is led by David Warner

Australia responded by chasing hard, reaching 100 for two in just 11.2 overs when the rain stopped them. David Warner, the opener, showed grace and commitment by leading the way with an undefeated 53 off 35 balls. His performance gave Australia a strong starting point, as they scored 28 runs more than Bangladesh’s estimated total at the time of the interruption, surpassing the DLS par score of 72.
