Steve Smith frustrated after second-straight washout

Preview: Australia will look to improve their performance from the opening match when they take on Bangladesh in a must-win Group A contest at The Oval on Monday.

Having scored 83-1 from 16 overs, Australia only needed to play for four more overs to be eligible to win via the Duckworth-Lewis rule for rain-affected games. According to the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which sets the laws of the game, at least 20 overs should be completed in each innings in a limited-over match to produce a result. Both the teams displayed poor bowling attack as Australia gave away 291 runs in 45 overs while Bangladesh conceded 308 runs.

With Australia teetering on the brink of elimination, Starc is not only looking to help his side triumph in their final group stage match, but also send a message to England ahead of the highly-anticipated Ashes series in November. The Australian bowlers received a severe thrashing at the hands of New Zealand batsmen in their last match so this time there is some expectation from Bangladesh at the same time this is so now perhaps Australia will be displaying their talents!

The two-time winners will now take on arch-rivals England in Match 10 of the tournament on June 10.

Australia's Champions Trophy hopes hang in the balance after yet another washout - their second from two games at the tournament - this time against Bangladesh. And if they win by a huge margin, they can even surpass England's net run-rate of 1.069 and top the Group A table.

Adam Zampa had to wait until after the 34th over before getting on to bowl but picked up two wickets quickly before Mitchell Starc (4/29) ran through the tail with ruthless efficiency with the Tigers slumping to 182 all out. "I was happy to keep batting through the rain", Smith said. After the shower, play was unable to continue and the umpires had to call the game off.

A Cambodian official has said US President Donald Trump's decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement is "unethical" and "irresponsible".

Opening batsman Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan managed to steady the Bangladesh innings before the latter fell leg before wicket (LBW) to Travis Head for 29.

Here are five players to watch out for from the clash at The Oval.

Where will Australia vs Bangladesh Champions Trophy match be played?

"They're obviously two very different teams to what we're going to come up against during the summer (in the Ashes), but there's a few familiar faces in both camps".

Australia captain Steve Smith: "It's a little bit frustrating not to get a result in".
