Australia edge Bangladesh in fourth T20 international to end any danger of a 5-0 sweep

Australia’s Andrew Tye and Mitchell Swepson delivered a spirited bowling performance as the tourists defeated Bangladesh by three wickets in Saturday’s fourth Twenty20 international to record their first win in the five-match series.

Bangladesh took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series with Friday’s 10-run victory in Dhaka.

The final match will be played on Monday at the same venue.

Tye (3-18) and Swepson (3-12) restricted Bangladesh to 104-9 as the hosts lost three players, including skipper Mahmudullah to a duck, and opener Mohammad Naim top-scoring with 28 runs.

The Bangladesh bowlers fought hard to defend that total but Dan Christian’s 15-ball 39 coupled with team-mate Ashton Agar’s run-a-ball 27 helped the visitors seal the contest with an over to spare having been 65-6.
