(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.

  1. The team selection is killing the team: for the second game in a row the team has lacked a recognized spinner. As such our bowling was too one paced. How many times will Thomas serve up hit me short balls before he is taken out of the attack. Remember the Ind-Pak game. Pak was 130 for 1 against India chasing 330 and the introduction of the spinner changed the game completely. Sometimes our brand of cricket is thoughtless. Brilliant teams know when to change the pace of the game: bringing on effective spinning options. Are we relying on CG to bowl 10 overs? Why is Russel still in the starting 11.He looks broken. Do we need all of Russel, Holder, Gabriel, Thomas and Cottrell to bowl quick? Kemar could have gotten a game as well as Nurse or F Allen(or both)who are spin options who can add some runs in the back end of the innings as well. Not matter what is said about Bang. batting the bowling was woeful : 320 in 40 overs and only 3 wickets down. A combination of 5 wickets taken in the last two games. Changes needed in the bowling department.
