World champions Australia were knocked out of the ICC Champions Trophy on Saturday after losing to England by Duckworth-Lewis-Stern scoring system in their must-win game of the Group A clash. Interestingly, another 2015 World Cup finalist New Zealand also suffered a similar fate when they were shown the door by Bangladesh on Friday. Both the World Cup finalists ended their campaign without a win.Needing victory to book their place in the last four, Australia registered a fighting 277/9 against the hosts. In reply, England were jolted early but a 159-run stand between captain Eoin Morgan (87) and centurion Ben Stokes (102 not out) ensured the Three Lions remained unbeaten with six points from three matches.The two-time champions Australia lacked game time before coming into the contest as they batted only 25 overs in the first two games. Both their matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh were washed out.Since clinching a second straight Champions Trophy title in 2009, the Australians haven’t won any of their six games in the tournament across two editions, held in England and Wales in 2013 and 2017.AP PhotoEarlier, Bangladesh swept to one of the biggest wins in their history as Mahmudullah and Shakib Al Hasan both hit centuries to secure a five-wicket victory over New Zealand in a potential decider for a place in the Champions Trophy semifinals.The two batsmen shared a national-record partnership of 224 runs as Bangladesh finished on 268-5 in 47.2 overs in reply to New Zealand’s 265-8 in 50 overs.The pair came together with tournament outsider Bangladesh in deep trouble on 33-4 and took their team to the brink of victory on 257-5. It was a record Bangladesh partnership for any ODI wicket and the third highest fifth-wicket ODI partnership for any team.advertisementMahmudullah hit a 107-ball undefeated 102, with eight fours and two sixes. Shakib scored 114 with 11 fours and one six off 115 balls before he was bowled by Trent Boult.Sixth-ranked Bangladesh advanced to the semifinals with three points in Group A, one more than Australia. New Zealand were out of the tournament with one point from three games.The English will likely play either Pakistan or Sri Lanka, with Bangladesh set for a match against the winners of South Africa-India at The Oval on Sunday.
