Australia defeated Bangladesh by 7 wickets to square the two-match series 1-1 in Chittagong on Thursday. Chasing a target of 86 runs in the second innings, Australia cruised to win in second clash. The visitors lost David Warner early in the chase after he was caught in the deep by Soumya Sarkar off Mustafizur Rahman for 8. Later, Steve Smith and Matt Renshaw held the innings together and began to take on the Bangladesh bowling attack. Though Taijul Islam and Shakib Al Hasan did remove Steve Smith and Renshaw respectively but it didn’t change the result of the match. Maxwell who came in at number 5 smacked a maximum over long on to seal the victory for his side. Here’s what pundits and experts have to say about the match.
