Though it was not that easy for Bangladesh to chase such a massive target at the pitch of County Ground but all thanks to the watchful 189-run partnership of Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das who assured the famous victory for Bangladesh at Manchester.
Shakib's majestic display on Monday paved the way for Bangladesh to record the second-highest run chase in World Cup history as they reached 322-3 at Taunton, England. At no point did we panic.
Shakib and Tamim kept the runs flowing with a 69-run stand before Tamim was run out by Sheldon Cottrell for 48.
With games to come against fancied New Zealand and Virat Kohli's powerful India, the West Indies' chances of progressing to the semifinals from the 10-team round-robin phase look bleak. "They batted well. Shakib came in and played really well and Liton Das played really well so you still gotta give them credit". "I know if I bat at No.3 I'll get more opportunities, more time to bat", Shakib said.
"Of course it hurts to see the West Indies struggle". "I personally think those matches in Ireland helped us a lot".
Holder also admitted that batting in the initial stage could have been done better as lack of momentum in the middle overs hurt them towards the end of the innings.Читайте также: Flight Attendant, Service Cart Smash Into Plane Ceiling During Flight Turbulence
West Indies are now seventh in the ten-team standings after playing five matches which includes one win, three losses and one no result. This was Liton's first World Cup match, having been drafted in for for Mohammad Mithun.
Hitting around Hope, Evin Lewis made 70 from 67 balls before Hetmyer smashed 50 in 26 balls, featuring four fours and three sixes.
In addition, the skipper never seemed able to get the field in just the right places and, although many Bangladeshi shots went through or into the air, only one yielded a half-chance.
Both teams announced themselves at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 with convincing victories, but have failed to build on to that success.
"We could have been more disciplined with the ball and we let ourselves down in the field as well", Windies captain Jason Holder said. "I'd love to continue because there are four more games left, and if we have to play it safe, we have to play our best cricket".
Shakib has now scored two centuries at the World Cup after hitting 121 against England.
But the Tigers had already posted 330 in the first innings of their win over South Africa earlier in the competition and they were never intimidated by their task against the Windies.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
