Bangladesh controlled to the second most astounding run pursue in World Cup history as Shakib Al Hasan's splendid century secured a noteworthy seven-wicket prevail upon the West Indies on Tuesday morning. 

Shakib shot 124 from 99 balls and Liton Das hit a great 94 from 69 conveyances to lead Bangladesh to 322-3 with 8.3 overs to save at Taunton. 

Bangladesh's most elevated one-day global run pursue put them behind just Ireland's 329-7 against England in 2011 in the historical backdrop of fruitful World Cup pursues — and they did it with 51 conveyances remaining. 

"Shakib Al Hasan has made it in this World Cup now. In each match, he's accomplishing something that is remarkable and we should trust it proceeds for the group," Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said. 

"Liton Das typically opens or bats at number three however he's adapted to descending the request and he's conveyed the goods." Mashrafe's side stays in with an opportunity of achieving the semi-finals after their second win in five matches. 

"We get an opportunity to experience yet we need to win the majority of our matches," Mashrafe included. 

The most astounding pursue in the present World Cup before the masterclass from Mashrafe's men was New Zealand's 248 against Bangladesh. 

Be that as it may, the Tigers had officially posted 330 in the main innings of their success over South Africa prior to the challenge and they were never threatened by their errand against the Windies. 

It was a merciless day for the West Indies, who were shambolic in the field and bowled extremely freely. 

A third defeat from their five games implies a semi-final berth is amazingly improbable as the good faith from the whipping of Pakistan in their opener blurs away.

But the story was the stunning masterclass from Bangladesh — who is now a real threat to snatch a spot in the semi-finals.

The records that fell included:

— 322 runs as the second highest chase ever seen at the Cricket World Cup

— Bangladesh’s equal the highest score ever at a World Cup

— Bangladesh’s equal highest ever run chase in all one-dayers

— The fifth highest innings score by a team batting second at the World Cup

The cricket world, understandably, was blown away by the records that tumbled on a famous day in Taunton.


Windies captain Jason said his players let themselves down.

“We could have been more disciplined with the ball and we let ourselves down in the field as well,” Holder said.

“I thought we got through the first 10 overs well batting but never got the momentum and had too much to do at the back end.”

Opener Tamim Iqbal set the tone for Bangladesh in the chase with six fours in his 53-ball innings of 48 before being superbly run out by Sheldon Cottrell.

Soumya Sarkar was dismissed for 29 when he scooped Andre Russell to Chris Gayle in the slips. 

Be that as it may, there were immense cheers from the Bangladesh fans around the ground when Shakib turned out to be only the second player to score 6,000 professions ODI keeps running for the Tigers. 

After reaching his fifth successive ODI 50, Shakib — who scored 121 against England earlier in the tournament — took command with scintillating innings that climaxed when he stroked a boundary to reach his century.

Shakib is presently the highest run scorer at the current year's World Cup up until this point and the West Indies were helpless as he and Das wrecked their wayward bowling to frolic home. 

Adding to the epic nature of the achievement, the unbroken stand of 189 among Shakib and Das was the second highest for the fourth wicket in World Cup history. 

Shakib finished with 16 fours, while Das, playing his first World Cup match, bludgeoned eight fours and four sixes.

Prior, Shai Hope's 96 and the joint-quickest fifty of the competition from Shimron Hetmyer helped the West Indies achieve 321-8. 

The Windies couldn't be contained in the second half of the innings as Hope established the frameworks for his nation's fourth most noteworthy World Cup score with unfaltering 121-ball innings. 

Hitting around Hope, Evin Lewis made 70 from 67 balls before Hetmyer smashed 50 of 26 balls, including four fours and three sixes. 

It was the equivalent quickest 50 in the current year's competition and the third snappiest by a West Indies batsman in World Cup history. 

Lewis' partnership of 116 with Hope was the West Indies' first-century remain of the World Cup. 

Holder's 33 from 15 balls guaranteed the Windies went past 300. Yet, Shakib and Das demonstrated that all out was not even close to enough with their superb presentation.
