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.
West Indies Team Players: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran(w), Ashley Nurse, Andre Russell, Jason Holder(c), Carlos Brathwaite, Shai Hope, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Sheldon Cottrell
Bangladesh Team Players: Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mahmudullah, Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mehidy Hasan, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Mithun, Abu Jayed, Mosaddek Hossain
