Video and statistics highlights from Bangladesh v West Indies match

After winning the toss, Bangladesh decided to bowl first, on a small ground of Taunton. West Indies started poorly, losing their star batsman Chris Gayle in the 4th over.

What an absolute remarkable win for Bangladesh against the West Indies. The victory has kept the hopes alive for Bangladesh in this tournament. They are now at the 5th position on the points table, ahead of Sri Lanka, West Indies, South Africa, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

After winning the toss, Bangladesh decided to bowl first, on a small ground of Taunton. West Indies started poorly, losing their star batsman Chris Gayle in the 4th over. Gayle could not manage to score a run in 13 balls. A century stand partnership for the 2nd wicket between Lewis and Hope put West Indies back on track. Though Hope scored 96 (off 121 balls) for the team, it was too slow in this kind of situation. Hetmyer and Holder, in particular, smashed few sixes and scored some quick runs which eventually helped the team to score a total of 321 runs on the board.

Bangladesh had to chase the second highest score ever in World Cup history. They started well, as their openers added 52 for the first wicket. Soumya Sarkar was the first wicket to fell, an edge off Andre Russell’s short ball, to Gayle at first slip. This must have made West Indies think tanks believe that bowling short ball will help them. However, Bangladeshi batsmen were ready for this stuff, they have seen West Indian bowlers bowling the same line throughout the match against Australia and England. The batsmen started cutting and pulling the short balls for boundaries on the small ground of Taunton.

Bangladesh lost two wickets in quick succession, but Shakib and Liton Das were determined to pull off a thrilling win against the Caribbeans. The West Indian bowlers kept bowling short and wide to the batsmen, as many as 112 balls in the match of which 177 runs scored by the Bangladesh batsmen. If this wasn’t enough, they bowled 25 wides in the innings, horrifying. There was no plan ‘B’ from the West Indian bowling attack.

Shakib played sensibly and brought up his second hundred of the tournament and also became the highest run scorer during his brilliant knock of 124. On the other hand, Liton Das who was quite severe against the short balls smashed an unbeaten 94 off just 69 balls, and the pair added 189 runs in only 22 overs. Bangladesh won the match with 51 balls left in the innings.
