Bangladesh needed 82 off 30 deliveries with two set batsmen Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah still at the crease. Till then, both had scored their respective half-centuries and were hitting a boundary or two in almost every single over. With run-rate touching 16.5 runs an over, Bangladesh was still in the game, keeping T20 dynamics in the mind. However, Australian skipper Aaron Finch introduced his trump card in the 46th over and introduced Nathan Coulter-Nile back into the attack.
Coulter-Nile, who carries a good experience at his back played with batsmen mind and pitched a short of a length delivery to Mahmudullah who smashed it straight into the hands of mid-wicket fielder and eventually cost the game for his side. Coulter-Nile finished with two wickets in that over, and eventually helped Australia to register a comfortable 48-run victory at Trent Bridge.
