Iconic former captain Sir Vivian Richards has criticised the Windies' approach to their ICC World Cup campaign which he describes as "one dimensional", and has slammed the lack of intensity shown in their defeat to Bangladesh on Monday.

Buoyed by their emphatic win over West Indies, Bangladesh will be brimming with confidence when they face a stiff test against Australia in their crucial World Cup fixture at Trent Bridge, here on Thursday.

On an excellent batting strip, the Aussies didn't have any hesitation to bat first.

Soumya Sarkar brought relief for a anxious Bangladesh by sending back Finch with his fifth ball in what was a soft dismissal off the medium pacer in the 21st over of the innings.

Warner became only the second batsman to complete 16 ODI tons in 110 innings.

An increasingly fluent Warner eventually fell to the same combination after facing 147 balls, hitting 14 fours and five sixes.

Rouhani: if Iran's demands aren't met, new actions to be taken
Shanahan abruptly stepped down Tuesday before his formal nomination ever went to the Senate, citing a "painful" family situation. US President Donald Trump said he would consider military action against Iran to prevent it from getting nuclear weapons.

The Caribbean side attracted criticism for their persistence with the tactic of short-pitched bowling, which worked well against Pakistan and Australia but backfired against the Tigers, who completed their highest-ever run chase of 322 to win with 51 balls remaining.

The stage was set to go after the bowlers and Glenn Maxwell produced a 10-ball 32, which had three sixes and two fours.

Bangladesh suffered an early blow in their chase when a mix-up between the two openers saw Soumya Sarkar get run out by a direct hit from Aaron Finch.

But on 41 off 41 balls he mistimed a slower ball from medium-pacer Marcus Stoinis and gave an easy catch at mid off in the 19th over. Tamim didn't stop and accomplished his maiden fifty in this World Cup off 65 deliveries.

Trent Bridge has twice seen England set a record innings score in a one-day worldwide, including the current mark of 481-6 against Australia past year.

Liton Das (20) overcame being hit on the helmet by a Starc bouncer first ball to play an entertaining and elegant cameo but when he was lbw to Adam Zampa (1-68), Bangladesh's already slim hopes appeared to be over. Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim tried hard and the duo scored 127 for the fifth wicket, but by then the rate had gone over 17. Mushfiqur notched a classical century off 95 balls and Bangladesh ended on 333 for eight in their 50 overs.
