Bangladesh produced a terrific performance, creating a flurry of records to crush Australia 80-8 in a league tie of the Kabaddi World Cup at the TransStadia here on Monday.

The massive margin of win helped the Asian team shatter three records — most points scored in a match, record victory margin and most number of all outs in a match.

Bangladesh dominated from the first minute to clinch the tie by a huge victory margin of 72 points — the biggest at the 2016 World Cup.

Aruduzzaman Munshi scored 17 points for Bangladesh whereas Sabuj Mia scored nine tackle points.Australia’s World Cup campaign ended on a pathetic note, as they suffered the ignominy of being the first team to not reach double figures in the tournament.

Bangladesh still have an outside chance to make it to the semi-finals but will have to rely on England to upset India in their next match.

Bangladesh made a solid start as they led 6-0 after three minutes and Australia were staring at an all out.

Bangladesh duly inflicted an all out in the next minute to lead 9-0.Australia’s raiders struggled to get a foot in the game as Munshi scored four raid points for Bangladesh in the first 10 minutes.

It took Australia nine minutes to open their account as their defence made a tackle to trail 1-14. Bangladesh were cruising to a comfortable win leading 16-1 after 10 minutes. Australia suffered the second all out of the match in the 12th minute to trail 21-1.

Neither Australia’s attack nor their defence could cope with Bangladesh’s intensity to crumble under pressure.Not a single raider could score a point for Australia in 15 minutes as they trailed 1-25. Zia-ur- Rahman scored five points in the first half for Bangladesh.

Australia earned their second point — a technical point — in the 18th minute but Bangladesh immediately inflicted another all out in the 19th minute to lead 32-2. Australia suffered further humiliation as Bangladesh made a super raid in the 20th minute to lead 36-2 at the end of the first half.

In the second half, Australia scored two points at the start as two Bangladesh defenders went off the court while making a tackle.

Bangladesh inflicted another all out in the 24th minute to lead 43-4. Australia were yet to make a successful raid after 25 minutes as it was turning out to be one off the most one-sided match of this year’s Cup.

In the 28th minute, Bangladesh inflicted another all out to lead 53-4. Australia finally managed to get their first raid point as Nicholas Cunningham scored take their total to 5-56.

Sabuj Mia achieved a high five for Bangladesh as they continued to dominate and led 60-6 in the 32nd minute.
