Soumya Sarkar took 3-58, but by the time the sixth gunner arrived, Australia had already benefited from numerous misplaced deliveries from a missing striker, Mohammad Saifuddin, who had been sidelined with a back spasm. Finch, fresh out of his 153 in a win over Sri Lanka, set the tone by throwing Bangladeshi captain Mashrafe Mortaza the only survivor of the Tigers’ surprise 2005 defeat to Australia in Cardiff to six against the cover. Warner increasingly fluid, eventually fell into the same combination after facing 147 balls, hitting 14 fours and five sixes. Khawaja fell in front of a hundred people when he plunged Soumya and Mushfiqur dived to try a nice catch.

On two occasions, Trent Bridge has seen England set a record for rounds in an international match, including the current score of 481-6 against Australia last year. Bangladesh did not help its own cause when a chaotic confusion between Tamim Iqbal and Soumya saw the latter pass out under The Hands of Finch from the middle. Shakib Al Hasan, fresh out of his winning century against the West Indies, then lost 41 runs by giving Marcus Stoinis a slower ball for Warner midway through. And the crowd rose when Mushfiqur completed his seventh century of ODI, from 95 balls, nine to four and a six.
