Bangladesh won by 7 wickets, with 51 balls remaining.
(AFP) — Bangladesh powered to the second highest run chase in World Cup history as Shakib Al Hasan’s brilliant century clinched a memorable seven-wicket win over the West Indies on Monday.
Shakib blasted 124 from 99 balls and Linton Das hit a superb 94 from 69 deliveries to lead Bangladesh to 322-3 with 8.3 overs to spare at Taunton.
Bangladesh’s joint highest one-day international run chase put them behind only Ireland’s 329-7 against England in 2011 in the history of successful World Cup chases.
Mashrafe Mortaza’s side remain in with a chance of reaching the semi-finals after their second win in five matches.
