The victory margin of 72 points was the biggest at the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup.
Bangladesh still have an outside chance to make it to the semi-finals but will have to rely on England to upset India in their next match. Australia's World Cup journey ended on a low as they put on a disappointing performance.
Bangladesh made a solid start as they led 6-0 after three minutes and Australia were staring at an all out. Bangladesh duly inflicted an all out in the next minute to lead 9-0. Australia's raiders struggled to get a foot in the game. Aruduzzaman Munshi scored four raid points for Bangladesh in the first 10 minutes.
It took Australia nine minutes to open their account as their defence made a tackle to trail 1-14. Bangladesh were cruising to a comfortable win as they led 16-1 after 10 minutes. Australia suffered the second all out of the match in the 12th minute to trail 21-1. Neither Australia's attack nor their defence could cope with Bangladesh's intensity and crumble under pressure.
Not a single raider could score a point for Australia in 15 minutes as they trailed 1-25. Zia-ur-Rahman scored five points in the first half for Bangladesh. Australia earned their second point - a technical point --in the 18th minute but Bangladesh inflicted another all out in the 19th minute to lead 32-2. Australia suffered further humiliation as Bangladesh made a super raid in the 20th minute to lead 36-2 at the end of the first half.
Australia scored two points at the start of the second half as two Bangladesh defenders went off the court while making a tackle. Bangladesh inflicted another all out in the 24th minute to lead 43-4. Australia were yet to make a successful raid after 25 minutes as it was turning out to be the most one-sided match of the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup. In the 28th minute, Bangladesh inflicted another all out to lead 53-4.
Australia finally managed to get their first raid point in the 28th minute as Nicholas Cunningham scored as they trailed 5-56. Sabuj Mia achieved a high five for Bangladesh as they continued to dominate and led 60-6 in the 32nd minute. A sixth all out was inflicted by Bangladesh in the 34th minute to lead 67-6.
Nothing went right for Australia as Bangladesh continued to increase their point tally and led 69-6 with less than five minutes left on the clock. Bangladesh inflicted the seventh all out of the match to lead 75-7. Bangladesh scored 42 raid points and 18 tackle points to record a massive 80-8 win.
