Australia will be ready for England showdown: Smith

Australia's Steve Smith saw his side denied victory by rain Australia's Steve Smith saw his side denied victory by rain

Australia would expect a better show from their bowlers when they clash against an ever-improving Bangladesh in a Group A ICC Champions Trophy 2017 encounter at the Kennington Oval on Monday.

Chasing 183, Australia were 83-1 when rain arrived after 16 overs, four overs short of the minimum needed for a game. Australia are now second in the group with two points from as many matches.

Regulations state 20 overs must be completed to activate the Duckworth-Lewis method, which would nearly certainly have ruled in Australia's favour, but only 16 were played meaning the spoils were shared.

Smith, whose side need a win against Bangladesh after their opener with New Zealand was a no result due to inclement weather, said the team had been told not to leave their hotel on Saturday. This has happened after rain washed out their first match against New Zealand.

The teams took a point apiece, a result that most benefits Group A rivals England.

The Australian cricket board said it was comfortable with the level of security provided to their Champions Trophy team following Saturday night's attack in London that killed seven people.


Legspinner Adam Zampa, preferred to John Hastings by the selectors, picked up two wickets with Travis Head, Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Moises Henriques grabbing one apiece. "The batters can respond themselves a little bit better", he said. "I think everyone was on the phone just letting their loved ones back home know that everything was okay with everyone involved in our team".

Furthermore, with Australia missing out on the semi-finals in the last edition of the Champions Trophy in 2013, Starc admitted that it will spur his side on to avoid suffering the same fate this time around. "I think in the middle patches of the match, we couldn't get any wickets, that's also a (key) point", he said. If the game had just carried on, perhaps they may have had a different opinion.

Australia needs 138 to win from 42 overs.

When asked about the umpires taking the teams off Smith said: "Of course I didn't want to go off".

In reply, after losing Aaron Finch (19) in the eighth over of the innings, Warner and Steve Smith (22*) had added unbeaten 38 runs before rain interrupted the proceedings and play could not resume.
