Rain frustrated Australia and kept Bangladesh's Champions Trophy hopes alive as their Group A match was abandoned at The Oval.

Chasing 183, Australia reached 83-1 before rain arrived after 16 overs - four short of the number needed for a result.

Tamim Iqbal made 95 in Bangladesh's 182 all out as Mitchell Starc took four wickets in nine balls.

Both sides will take a point, with England still top of the group.

Australia, who benefitted from the rain during their opening match against New Zealand, will have been frustrated at the abandonment as they were on top when the rain arrived.

Their fast bowlers, who were criticised by captain Steve Smith after the first game, provided pace and accuracy to restrict Bangladesh before they made a composed start with the bat.

Both sides can still qualify for the semi-finals, with Bangladesh set to play New Zealand on Friday, while Australia face England on Saturday.
