Nottingham - Australia scored 219 for six against Bangladesh in their ICC World Twenty20 warm-up match at Trent Bridge on Monday.

Shane Watson led the way with 52 off just 23 balls including three sixes and six fours and together with wicket-keeper Brad Haddin (47) put on exactly 100 for the first wicket after Australia captain Ricky Ponting won the toss.

But both openers fell in the space of three balls to Mohammad Mahmudullah.

The off-spinner went on to dismiss all of Australia's top four, getting rid of Ponting and Andrew Symonds on his way to figures of four wickets for 37 runs in his maximum four overs.
