Highlights

23:16 (IST)

What a day! What a day in Bangladeshi cricket! This will surely go down in Bangladeshi cricket history as one of their greatest triumphs! West Indies were one of those teams fancied to make it to the semis, all the more after their lop-sided victory over Pakistan at the start of their campaign. Bangladesh however, ended up strolling to the target with 51 balls to spare against the same side, registering their first-ever World Cup win over the Windies as well as their highest-ever ODI chase. Give it up for Shakib, who's in the form of a lifetime at the moment, and could very well finish with the most runs at the end of the tournament. 

Let's see if Afghanistan pull off a similar act against the hosts England at Manchester tomorrow. For now, we bid you good night! 

23:12 (IST)

Jason Holder, West Indies captain: (Not enough runs, not quite good enough with the ball) I think it’s a bit of both. We were probably 40-50 runs short and the wicket played well but we just didn’t get enough runs.

Having said that, I think we could have been more disciplined with the ball and we let ourselves down in the field as well.

We knew it would be a little challenging in the first 10 overs, after losing the toss and being sent out to bat. We played the first ten overs reasonably well. It’s just a situation where we didn’t get the momentum going. 

We had too much to do in the back end. If you get 320 here, you have to do really well in the field to make up for it. We didn’t get wickets, and we let a couple of chances slip.

We tried to just hit the top of the stumps, but there’s no excuse for the way we bowled. We need to be more disciplined, and we have more games to play, each of which is a final for us, so we can’t let it get us down.

23:10 (IST)

Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh captain: Still we have a chance to go, but we have to win all the matches. Hamstring was bit hurting, but we had enough bowlers to bowl those (death) overs, so no worry on that part. I think the turning moment was Mustafizur getting those two wickets in that one over, including Russell. Always said he's made it in this World Cup and delivered for the team. Doing something that's exceptional. Liton Das batted brilliantly. Normally he's batted as an opener or 3. It's a tough ask for openers to bat at 5. But he's delivered.

Game, set and match for Bangladesh 

Shakib has played a blinder and he was aptly supported by Liton. One of the greatest run chases in the World Cup history. The crowd here is going berserk.

Following this massive victory, Bangladesh' semi-final hopes are well and truly alive. Whereas for West Indies, things will go downhill from here.

Shakib Al Hasan is the Man of the Match!


Shakib: It feels great. Staying at the wicket till the end was satisfying. Have been working on my batting for a month and a half and it has been paying off. It was a team effort. Not sure why, but if I bat at No 3, Ill get more time to bat. If I bat at No 5, I won't get enough time which is not idea. Need to contribute with the ball. At this time I think I'm doing okay. We have to bring our A game against Australia. Hope they will keep supporting us. They have been fantastic. 

22:53 (IST)

Well...

22:53 (IST)

After 41.3 overs,Bangladesh 322/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 124 , Liton Das 94)

Liton guides the ball towards square on the leg side to collect a brace at the start of the over, before pulling a short ball towards fine-leg to help complete a comfortable seven-wicket victory over West Indies to jump to the fifth spot in the World Cup 2019 points table, ahead of Sri Lanka and West Indies! Shakib slams a second consecutive ton, this one coming in a winning cause, complementing his efforts with the ball earlier in the day. 

22:49 (IST)

FOUR! Bangladesh hammer West Indies by seven wickets with 51 balls to spare! Liton gets to hit the winning boundary, guiding the short ball from Gabriel towards the fine leg fence as the Tigers pull off what will go down as one of their greatest victories ever!  BAN 322/3

22:47 (IST)

After 41 overs,Bangladesh 316/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 124 , Liton Das 88)

Holder brings himself back at the start of the final powerplay, and concedes 11 off it, including two boundaries to Liton. Bangladesh just one hit over the fence away from collecting their second win of the tournament, and they have nine overs to do so. 

22:45 (IST)

FOUR! Slashed over backward point by Liton Das! BAN 315/3, need just seven more to win from here! 

22:44 (IST)

FOUR! Classic cover drive by Liton, moving into the 80s with that shot, though the possibility of a century is pretty much out of the equation now. BAN 309/3

22:42 (IST)

After 40 overs,Bangladesh 305/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 123 , Liton Das 78)

Shakib collects a brace off the first delivery to bring up the 300 for the Bangladeshis. Liton pulls a short ball from Gabriel towards the backward square leg region, coming the ball falling in no-man's land, allowing the batsman a single. Five off the over. Bangladesh nearly home now, needing 17 to win from 60 balls. 

22:38 (IST)

After 39 overs,Bangladesh 299/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 119 , Liton Das 76)

Cottrell drops a return catch after Liton shuffles forward and drives the ball straight at the bowler. Was a difficult catch to begin with, but left Cottrell frustrated nevertheless. To make matters worse for the bowler, Liton pulls the ball towards the backward square leg fence for a four off the next ball. Bangladesh need 23 to win from 66 balls. 

22:37 (IST)

Bangladesh are looking to finish this in a hurry now. Perhaps the message has been sent from the dressing room.

Meanwhile, in this World Cup, Shakib is doing exactly what Klusener did in 1999 or even. Highest run scorer in the tournament now along with his five wickets.

Bangladesh on the verge of a huge victory here.

FOUR! Right after getting dropped by the bowler, Liton hooks a back-of-length ball from Cottrell towards the backward square-leg fence for his fifth four, moving to 76 in the process. BAN 299/3

22:34 (IST)

After 38 overs,Bangladesh 294/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 118 , Liton Das 72)

24 runs conceded by Gabriel off his seventh over, the most expensive so far in this competition, an over that has all but sealed the game in Bangladesh's favour and nearly eliminates any chance of a late comeback for West Indies (they'll need a miracle now). Liton smacks a hat-trick of sixes off the first three deliveries to move into the 70s, while Shakib guides the ball towards third man for a four off the penultimate ball. Bangladesh need 28 to win from 72 balls. 

22:31 (IST)

FOUR! Nudged away towards the third man fence by Shakib! BAN 293/3

22:29 (IST)

SIX! Hat-trick of sixes for Liton Das, this time hooked over the fine leg fence off a short ball from Gabriel! He's in a hurry to finish this now! BAN 288/3

22:29 (IST)

SIX! Back-to-back sixes for Liton at the start of the 38th over. Another catch by a spectator at the long off! And that brings up the 150-stand for the fourth wicket! BAN 282/3

22:28 (IST)

SIX! Short from Gabriel, and Liton smacks this over the midwicket fence for a maximum! Good catch by the spectator sitting in the front row. BAN 276/6

22:27 (IST)

After 37 overs,Bangladesh 270/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 113 , Liton Das 53)

Cottrell starts the over with a wide. Concedes a single to Liton off the third delivery. Just when he appeared to be bowling a decent over, Shakib flicks a full delivery towards the backward square leg fence for his 15th boundary. Bangladesh need 52 to win from 78 balls. 

22:26 (IST)

FOUR! Cottrell strayed down the leg side on this occasion, and Shakib didn't spare the loose delivery, flicking it towards the deep backward square leg fence. BAN 270/3

22:26 (IST)

FOUR! Cottrell strayed down the leg side on this occasion, and Shakib didn't spare the loose delivery, flicking it towards the deep backward square leg fence. BAN 270/3

22:23 (IST)

After 36 overs,Bangladesh 265/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 109 , Liton Das 52)

Couple of mishits in the over, one each to Liton and Shakib, with the ball landing safely beyond the fielder's reach on each occasion. 11 off Thomas' sixth over including a boundary off the last ball to Shakib. Bangladesh need 57 off 84 balls. 

22:22 (IST)

FOUR! Lofted over mid on by Shakib, with the fielders now sporting a resigned look on their faces already. BAN 264/3

22:18 (IST)

Very watchable indeed

22:17 (IST)

After 35 overs,Bangladesh 253/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 101 , Liton Das 51)

Five off the over, including a single to Liton in the third delivery that brings up his half-century off just 43 balls. Unless they suffer a dramatic collapse, this is Bangladesh' game to lose. The 'Tigers' need another 69 to win from 90 balls. 

22:15 (IST)

Shakib Al Hasan becomes the first Bangladesh batsman to score a century against West Indies in ODI World Cups

Fifty up for Liton Das off just 43 balls, collecting a single in the 35th over to bring up the milestone! He has provided Shakib with idea support from the other end, with the partnership putting Bangladesh on course towards a memorable victory (provided they don't suffer a late collapse). BAN 251/3

22:14 (IST)

After 34 overs,Bangladesh 248/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 100 , Liton Das 47)

10 off Thomas' fifth over, including a boundary each to Liton and Shakib, the latter bringing up his century with a lovely cover drive off the last ball, taking 83 balls to get to the milestone. Bangladesh need another 74 to win from 96 balls.

22:12 (IST)

FOUR! Back-to-back centuries for Shakib Al Hasan, who's having a dream World Cup right now! Bring up the three figure mark with a lovely drive through extra cover! He joins a very elite list of cricketers with back-to-back tons in a World Cup. BAN 248/3

22:12 (IST)

FOUR! Another streaky boundary for Liton, this one off an inside edge that lands just short of the third man fence. BAN 243/3

This is the first century stand for Bangladesh against Windies in ODI World Cup, going past 85 runs stand between Mehrab Hossain and Naimur Rahman at Dublin in 1999.

After 33 overs,West Indies 166/3 ( Shai Hope (W) 55 , Shimron Hetmyer 7)

There's just no stopping these two right now, with another 10 runs being added to the Bangladesh total at the end of the 33rd over, leaving another 84 to be chased at less than five an over. Liton meanwhile, brings up the 100-stand with Shakib with an uppercut over third man for a six. 

22:05 (IST)

SIX! Just one day since Rohit's six against Hasan Ali, and we witness another six off an uppercut, this one travelling a lot finer over the third man fence! Also brings up the century stand with Shakib for the fourth wicket. BAN 236/3

22:03 (IST)

After 32 overs,Bangladesh 228/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 94 , Liton Das 33)

Another big over for Bangladesh, with 13 runs coming off it, including two boundaries to Liton Das, who'se scoring at more than run-a-ball at this stage. Bangladesh are cruising towards the target right now, with the required rate just a little over five at the moment. Bangladesh need 94 to win from 108 balls. 

22:02 (IST)

FOUR! Pummeled away towards the long off fence by Liton off Gayle! BAN 227/3

22:01 (IST)

FOUR! Liton Das shuffles forward, and smacks the ball towards the midwicket region! BAN 219/3

22:01 (IST)

Things are looking more and more gloomy for the Windies. Nothing is happening for the bowlers and Bangladesh are playing some sensible cricket. I am very impressed with the way Liton Das has composed himself in this innings. He has shown a lot of maturity and played a timely second fiddle to Shakib.

After 31 overs,Bangladesh 215/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 92 , Liton Das 23)

Liton pulls the ball beyond the reach of mid on in the second delivery, coming back for a second run. Shakib comes back for a second off the following delivery after guiding the ball towards midwicket. Single collected off the next two balls, with a dot to end the over. Shakib, in the meantime, has entered the nervous 90s. Bangladesh need 107 to win from 114 overs. 

21:51 (IST)

After 30 overs,Bangladesh 210/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 89 , Liton Das 21)

Chris Gayle is brought into the attack after the drinks break, with the likes of Gabriel and Russell showing concerns over their fitness. Starts off with a 10-run over, five of those coming off a wide that eventually runs all the way to the fine leg fence. Bangladesh need 112 to win from 120 balls. 

21:44 (IST)

After 29 overs,Bangladesh 200/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 87 , Liton Das 18)

Single off each of the first two deliveries, followed by a boundary to Shakib off a thick top edge that sends the ball flying towards the long stop fence for a one-bounce four. Liton then survives a run-out scare in the fourth delivery, getting his bat down on time, with keeper Shai Hope unable to break the stumps with the ball in hand either. Eight off the over. Bangladesh breach the 200-barrier in the 29th over, needing another 122 to win with seven wickets and a 126 balls left. Drinks called on the field at the end of the over.

21:41 (IST)

FOUR! Shakib certainly has luck on his side today, getting a massive top-edge that sends the ball flying towards the long stop fence for a one bounce four. BAN 198/3

21:40 (IST)

After 28 overs,Bangladesh 192/3 ( Shakib Al Hasan 81 , Liton Das 16)

Big over for the Bangladeshis, with Shakib collecting three boundaries, two of them off successive deliveries, as 13 runs are collected off Gabriel's sixth over. Bangladesh need 130 to win from 22 overs. 

21:40 (IST)

Some anxious moments on the field for both teams but at this stage I believe Bangladesh are ahead in this fixture. The asking rate is manageable and the Tigers bat deep. Shakib is playing a gem of a knock once again. His dream run in the World Cup continues.

FOUR! A shot of confidence from Shakib, pulling a back-of-length delivery towards the cow corner fence for back-to-back boundaries. BAN 191/3

21:36 (IST)

FOUR! Nudged away towards the fine leg fence by Shakib. BAN 187/3

21:33 (IST)

FOUR! Lovely timing from Shakib, punching a back-of-length ball from Gabriel down the ground. BAN 183/3

West Indies vs Bangladesh LIVE SCORE, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Updates: Liton guides the ball towards square on the leg side to collect a brace at the start of the over, before pulling a short ball towards fine-leg to help complete a comfortable seven-wicket victory over West Indies to jump to the fifth spot in the World Cup 2019 points table, ahead of Sri Lanka and West Indies! Shakib slams a second consecutive ton, this one coming in a winning cause, complementing his efforts with the ball earlier in the day.

Preview: The West Indies all-rounder once again pulled up a knee injury during their eight-wicket defeat to England in a World Cup match here on Friday and he went off the field after bowling to Jonny Bairstow.

The 31-year-old had earlier also left the ground during West Indies' game against Australia on 6 June.

"It's been difficult so far for him. We have been trying our best to keep him on the park, but it is proving difficult," admitted Holder.

Holder desperately wants Russell, who is a match-winner on his day, to be a part of West Indies Playing XI during crucial World Cup matches.

"Going forward, we have to persist. He is here for a reason. We think he can be a match-winner for us. We have just got to cope with him. We have got to do everything we possibly can with him to keep him on the park," the captain said.

The West Indies have suffered their second defeat in four games but Holder is confident of his team making the semi-finals of the World Cup.

"I think it would be very foolish not to be confident (we can reach the semis). There's still a lot of cricket to be played in this tournament. We have only played four games. There is a hell of a lot of cricket left to be played," said Holder.

West Indies will play Bangladesh next, who have just one win from four matches. Bangladesh's previous fixture, against Sri Lanka, was rained out.
