Neither of the two teams started strongly in the tournament.
With Woakes unavailable and Stokes struggling to bowl at full pace because of a problematic knee, Finn can expect to be selected for Tuesday's match against New Zealand with England looking to record a second straight victory in the tournament.
Earlier, fast bowler Mitchell Starc clinched a four-wicket haul as Australia restricted Bangladesh to 182 runs.
Australia, whose final group match is against England in Birmingham on June 10, were the victims of one of the all-time great upsets when Bangladesh beat them by five wickets in a one-day worldwide in Cardiff in 2005.
"It looks a very good wicket to bat on".
Having put England's bowlers to the sword, Tamim was back in the groove, skipping down the pitch and driving the ball back past Josh Hazlewood for an emphatic four.
The left-handed opener chose to up the ante and clubbed Travis Head for back-to-back sixes but the spinner struck two balls later by trapping Shakib (29) in front.
Hasan scored 29 runs, hitting just two boundaries in the 48 balls he faced.
Without Tamim, Bangladesh would have been in tatters, but he maintained his one-man show by blasting two sixes off Head.
Steve Smith waited until the 35th over to bring legspinner Adam Zampa, who replaced John Hastings from their opener against New Zealand, into the attack.
But his partners continued to topple as Al Hasan fell lbw, followed by Sabbir Rahman and Mahmudullah, who were both bamboozled by leg-spinner Adam Zampa, each on eight.
After Mashrafe Bin Mortaza made a decision to bat first in the must-win game, Bangladesh top order crumbled early in the innings.
