Opener Usman Khawaja (94) and AIS skipper Henriques (82)led Australian Institute of Sports (AIS) to their second victory against touring Bangladesh in the match one day warm up series at Gardens Oval in Darwin today. AIS was in firm control from the beginning of the run chase as they chased Bangladesh's 270 with 11 balls and five wickets to spare.
Earlier, AIS won the toss and invited Bangladesh on a breezy cloudy morning. Bangladesh lost their openers cheaply within first 3 overs and skipper Ashraful soon followed them after a quickfire 21. Shakib Al Hasan (67) and Roqibul Hasan (50*) ensured a decent total for the tourists but at the end it proved too little against a strong AIS line-up.
Bangladesh will meet AIS again on Monday for the last match of the series.
