Australia's Steve Smith frustrated by Oval abandonment

Australia had to settle for a draw with New Zealand in Birmingham after bad weather Australia had to settle for a draw with New Zealand in Birmingham after bad weather

But Aussie skipper Steve Smith said there could have been a "bit more urgency" to get the covers off when the rain stopped, with his team just four overs away from securing a much-needed tournament win.

It is the second successive Australia match to fall victim to the weather after their tournament opener against New Zealand was washed out at Edgbaston last Friday.

LONDON, June 4 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.

On the other hand, Bangladesh may not have won its first match against England but its batting was impressive.

In response, Australia were cruising with David Warner 40 not out and Smith unbeaten on 22 - the former becoming the fastest Australian to score 4,000 one-day worldwide runs before the heavens opened to prevent a sure-fire win.

"I thought it was probably one of the worst bowling displays that we've put on for a very long time", he said. After the shower, play was unable to continue and the umpires had to call the game off. He started today 36 runs short of the milestone. He is now behind only South African Hashim Amla (81 innings) and West Indian Viv Richards (88) on the all-time list. Earlier, Bangladesh were bowled out for 182 in 44.3 overs after a brilliant collective effort by the Australian bowlers. Both Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim, two of their most experienced batsmen led from the front.

David Warner and Aaron Finch are a little circumspect to start the innings, but slowly they get into their groove, and when they do, the Bangladesh bowlers struggle to stop the flow of runs.

As well as the elements, Bangladesh have Tamim Iqbal to thank after he followed up his 128 against England with 95 here, one of only three in his side to make double figures and the only one to pass 30. Apart from ace pacer Mustafizur Rehman, all the bowlers looked below par, leaving Captain Mashrafe Mortaza fairly concerned.

Soumya Sarkar (3) was the first to go in the sixth over at team score of 22 with Josh Hazlewood edging him to Matthew Wade as the opening batsman played without any foot movement. This has resulted in a net run-rate of 0 and 2 points.

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.
