Aussies could finish as group leaders in World Twenty20

Aussies could finish as group leaders in World Twenty20Barbados (West Indies), May 4 : Should Australia win against Bangladesh here on Wednesday, it could finish as Group A leaders after the round-robin phase of the Twenty20 World Cup.

Two teams from the group advance on Thursday to the Super Eights and even if Australia suffered a narrow defeat to Bangladesh they would still qualify for the second stage on superior run-rate. Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 21 runs last Saturday.

Australia has a poor record in World T20, with a semi-final finish in 2007 in South Africa and an embarrassing first-round exit in 2009 in England.

"There''s probably extra motivation from within the squad. We want to perform better than we have in Twenty20 cricket in general, not just in this tournament," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted captain Michael Clarke, as saying. (ANI)
