Townsville (Australia), August 19, 2012, Agencies:

Bangladesh, put into bat in overcast conditions at Endeavour Park here, could only manage 171 runs.

Captain Will Bosisto (71 not out, 134b, 7x4) was again outstanding for the young Australian side.

He played patiently and maturely, combining with fellow West Australian Ashton Turner for a sixth wicket unbeaten stand of 72 runs to take his side to victory in the 45th over.

Australia will now meet South Africa in the first semifinal at Tony Ireland Stadium Tuesday.
