Match 23 of Cricket World Cup 2019 is between West Indies and Bangladesh

17 Jun 2019, 10:49 PM (IST)

Win with a splendid boundary!

Bangladesh beat West Indies by 7 wickets to register a historic win. 

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.

Innings break:

West Indies are 321/8 in 50 overs.

Shai Hope hit a patient 121-ball 91 while Shimron Hetmyer produced a quick-fire fifty as West Indies posted a challenging 321 for eight against Bangladesh. 

Hope shared a 116-run partnership with Evin Lewis (70) for the second wicket before adding another 83 runs with Hetmyer (50 off 26 balls) after West Indies had a sedate start following Bangladesh's decision to field first.

The two-time champions seemed to be on course for a 350-plus score before Bangladesh tied things up a bit in the last five overs, which yielded just 33 for loss of one wicket.

For Bangladesh, pace duo of Mohammad Saifuddin (3/72) and Mustafizur Rahman (3/59) snapped three wickets each, while Shakib Al Hasan (2/54) took two. 

Earlier, West Indies lost Chris Gayle (0) early and could manage only 32 runs in the first powerplay with the Bangladesh pacers bowling in tendum. 

Lewis and Hope then brought up the team hundred in 22.4 overs. The left-handed opener then exploded, smashing successive fours off Shakib before sending one from the bowler out of the park in his next over. 

But Shakib returned to dismiss Lewis, having him caught at long-off as West Indies slipped to 122 for two. 

Hope then completed his fifty in 75 balls but new man Nicholas Pooran (25) could not stay longer as WI lost their third wicket in the 33rd over. 

That brought Hetmyer to the crease and he took the Bangladesh bowlers to the cleaners, smashing four boundaries and three sixes in his 26-ball whirlwind innings. 

Once Hetmyer was back to the hut, captain Jason Holder blasted 33 off 15 balls with the help of four hits to the fence and two sixes to keep the flow of runs but West Indies lost their way after he was dismissed in the 44th over.
Hope too holed out in the 47th over.

Windies skipper Jason Holder doesn't mind 'underdogs' tag ahead of Bangladesh clash. 

"If you want to put us in the underdog category, fair enough," Holder told a news conference on Sunday.

"We've played them quite a bit in the past and they've got the better of us, but it's a different occasion and there's lots at stake, so we're all up for it.

"It's a challenge against Bangladesh, so we just want to get over them and move forward."

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza hinted at targeting West Indies with his spin bowling options.

"It's a very important match for us, especially losing few points in the last three matches," Mashrafe said.

"I think our bowling has been fantastic against them in the last two-three series we played.

"Obviously the top five West Indies batsmen are left-handers, and Mehidy bowled against them really well too."

Bangladesh and West Indies have played each other nine times since the 2015 World Cup, and the Asian side has emerged victorious in seven occasions, including three wins in the tri-nation tournament held in Ireland last month. 

Overall, both the teams have played 37 ODI matches. West Indies won 21 and Bangladesh won 14. 

17 Jun 2019, 1:24 PM (IST)


Bangladesh will have the psychological advantage when they face West Indies though both teams are sailing in the same boat as far as their World Cup campaign is concerned.

Bangladesh beat West Indies as many as three times in tri-series that Ireland hosted ahead of the World Cup. 

Even though West Indies stars such as Chris Gayle and Andre Russell were not part of that series, Jason Holder's team still must be smarting from those three consecutive losses last month. 

Both teams are on three points from four games, having lost two games with one game each being a washout.

Bangladesh, who last played on June 8 when they lost to England, will be itching to take the field after a forced break of one week with the game against Sri Lanka called off due to rain. 

They had the opportunity to score two points against a struggling Sri Lanka before the weather sealed their fate.

The Mashrafe Mortaza-led side has batted pretty well so far but needs to step up in the bowling department. The bowlers conceded as many as 386 runs against England in

Cardiff and it was too much of an ask for the batsmen who ended at 280. 

West Indies, on the other hand, need to change their approach in batting. Most of their batsmen seem to be in T20 mode while playing 50-over cricket.
