SHOWS: NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND, UK (JUNE 20, 2019) (ICC - NO RESALES) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA OPENER, DAVID WARNER, SAYING: "I don't mean to go out there and bat slow.

I've tried to get a calculation on how many fielders I've hit in the first 10.

It gets a bit frustrating because you sort of middle one and it goes sort of full pace to the fielder and you kind of even get off strikes.

That's been a bit annoying, but I've just hung in there.

I got frustrated against India.

I even got frustrated against Afghanistan.

And then today, Finchy kept telling me just to hang in there and bat deep and bat time.

And that was in like the eighth or ninth over.

Because it's generally not my game to stick there -- and I usually try and go after it a little bit come down the wicket or something.

But must be a bit more maturity, I think." 2.

WHITE FLASH 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA OPENER, DAVID WARNER, SAYING: "Look, it means a lot to us, but it means a lot to our country.

That was obviously a dark year for Australian cricket.

And we've just got to keep winning for our country, doing the best we can, put our best foot forward.

We just can't be complacent and comfortable.

We've got to keep moving forward playing our best cricket.

And that starts again come training in a couple days' time." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5 (SOUNDBITE) (English) BANGLADESH CAPTAIN, MASHRAFE MORTAZA, SAYING: "We have still three matches left.

We have to play hard and then let's see.

And it's going to be difficult for sure, even if we can able to win all those three matches, still we have to look and have to see what's going on.

But I think from us, I think it's very important to finish all those three matches, especially one at a time." STORY: Openers Aaron Finch and David Warner have proved so consistent in this World Cup that Australia have been able to notch huge totals without major risk and it was their 121-run partnership that set up their 381-5 against Bangladesh on Thursday (June 20).

For long periods it wasn't sparkling, but it was effective, and after Finch was out for 53, Warner kicked on to score a hugely impressive 166.

That took his tournament-leading aggregate to 447, with Finch running third on 396.

Only against West Indies have they failed to get their team off to a great start - five times making at least a 50-run partnership.

It meant Usman Khawaja was allowed to play at his pedestrian pace for 89 without pressure.

On a high-scoring Trent Bridge pitch, that might have been more of a hindrance than a help, but a late blast, headed by Glenn Maxwell's 32 in 10 balls, took them to a tally that proved 48 too many for Bangladesh.

Warner is certainly experienced, though he has looked a different type of player since his return from being banned for his part in last year's ball-tampering scandal.

Previously a powerful, brash hitter who showed utter disdain for his rivals, he is now more circumspect.

His two slowest career ODI 50s have come in this tournament and he was going along a well under a run a ball on Thursday before cutting loose to finish with 14 fours and four sixes.

Warner said his time away from the game had helped freshen him mentally and physically.

"It means a lot to us, but it means a lot to our country.

That was obviously a dark year for Australian cricket.

And we've just got to keep winning for our country, doing the best we can, put our best foot forward," he told reporters at a post-match news conference.

Coming off the loss, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza said it is still possible for his side to advance if all the pieces fall into place.

"We have still three matches left.

We have to play hard and then let's see.

And it's going to be difficult for sure, even if we can able to win all those three matches, still we have to look and have to see what's going on," he said.
