Mushfiqur Rahim also struck an unbeaten 102 for the Tigers, as a World Cup match featured 700 runs between two teams for the first time.

On return from a side strain, Stoinis (2-54) got the key wicket of Shakib Al Hasan for a run-a-ball 41.

Coming off back-to-back centuries, Shakib looked in good touch again but was deceived by a slower ball that attracted a leading edge to Warner at mid off.

Starc (2-55) then drove a dagger through Bangladesh's hopes, removing opener Tamim Iqbal for 62 when he chopped on.

Zampa copped some late punishment to finish 1-68, after he trapped the dangerous Liton Das lbw to a ball that skidded on for 20.

Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur then put on 127 for the fifth wicket off just 100 balls, but when Coulter-Nile (2-58) had Mahmudullah caught in the deep for 69 off 50 balls the game was over.

He was measured in his first hundred, before helping Australia explode late in the innings.

His final 66 runs came from just 37 balls, as he finished with 14 fours and five sixes in his 147-ball knock.

His biggest six was a massive pull shot off a short ball from spinner Shakib Al Hasan, that sailed deep into the stands as he made use of the short boundary.

At the time of his dismissal - caught at short third man - he looked on track to become the first Australian male to hit a double century in an ODI.

Usman Khawaja also hit a crucial 89, given he'd been retained for the match ahead of Shaun Marsh despite passing 20 once in the first five games of the tournament.

He and Warner combined for a 192-run second-wicket partnership off just 142 balls, after Aaron Finch (53 off 51) and Warner had opened with a 121-run stand.

Australia are now first on 10 points and could only miss the finals if they lose their last three games and a number of other results go against them.
