World Cup Report Match 11: Australia v Bangladesh

With Cyclone Marcia ensuring this match didn't get started, it proved to be a blessing for more than one group. Certainly, though they would like to have played the game, the one point Bangladesh received is one more than they would have if the game had gone ahead. It will certainly help in their chances of making the next round. Australia still have to defeat New Zealand next Saturday to top Group A. 
However, the Australian selectors have dodged a media bullet, as there is little doubt their team selection would have caused some outcry had the match gone ahead. That will now have to wait until next week, when if all players are fit (and that is likely) it will make the selection of Australia's final XI very interesting indeed.
