Finch guides Australia to their 1st victory in WT20

Australia one of the dominant teams in world of cricket failed to perform this WT20 and went to play its last group match against the host nation Bangladesh. This match was more of pride rather than of points as both the teams were looking for their first win in the super 10 of WT20. The hosts won the toss and elected to bat first. The openers fell very cheaply and it looked that again the host will face it difficult to face a good bowling attack. But the Bangladeshi skipper and Shakib one of the best all-rounder had something different in their minds as the pair added 112 runs before the skipper fell for 47 off just 36 balls. Shakib kept the fight on and Bangladesh scored 153 at the end of 20 overs. Coulter-Nile was the most successful bowler as he took 2 wickets for Australia. 

Australia after having lost all their matches were in no mood of taking it lightly and their openers scored at a brisk pace adding 98 runs in just 11 overs before warner fell for 48. Finch was next to go at a score of 71 from just 45 balls. Bailey and White guided Australians home for their first and only victory in this edition of WT20. The Man of the Match award was given to Finch for his 71.
