Australia denied Champions Trophy against Bangladesh

Australia has been denied a Champions Trophy victory over Bangladesh with rain abandoning the group A clash at The Oval.

That's good news for the Black Caps who had their opening game against Australia rained off.

The bad news is rain is also expected to play havoc with New Zealand's second game against hosts England starting tonight in Cardiff.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 182 in 44.3 overs with opener Tamim Iqbal making 95. Aussie quick Mitchell Starc took 4-29.

Australia were cruising at 83 for one through 16 overs when rain stopped play.

The no result leaves Australia on two points from two rained out games with their final fixture against England remaining.
