02nd InningsBangladesh
That is it from Monday. The hosts come back in action on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, taking on Afghanistan in Manchester. That looks to be a one-sided game on paper but if the Afghans get on a roll, you never know. Join us at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT) for all the action from game number 24. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Bangladesh move to number 5 in the points table with 5 wins from as many games. They still seem to be away from the top four but that is mainly because of the aura of Australia, England, New Zealand and India. In this tournament, any team can beat any other (as Pakistan showed against England) and Bangladesh will be looking to relive that. West Indies drop down to 7th and are almost facing an exit, simply because of the challenges that await them next - New Zealand and India.
Victorious Bangladesh skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza, is quietly confident. He agrees that Bangladesh still have a chance to make it to the semis but also understands that the team will have to win all its remaining games. On his knee, Mash says that it is still giving him a problem and it is dodgy, which is why he did not bowl his full quota of 10 overs. Reckons that the turning point in the game was Mustafizur's double-wicket over which got rid of Hetmyer and Russell. Praises Shakib and the whole of the batting order for chipping in useful runs. Ends by further praising Liton Das given that he usually opens with the bat but today, he performed in the middle order.
West Indian skipper, Jason Holder, says that West Indies were probably 40-50 runs short. Feels that they could have been a bit more disciplined with the ball but let themselves down in the field as well. Stresses that with the bat, they started well, seeing off the first 10 overs but then just could not get any momentum. Laments the fact that they could never get quick runs at the death. On the bowling, he reckons wickets are the key in any chase and today, they did not get any. Hopes that they get more disciplined in the coming games.
SHAKIB AL HASAN HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. The superstar says he feels amazing and the wickets in the end he took was even more satisfying according to him. States he has been working on his batting and it paid off. Mentions it was a team effort, they restricted Windies to a decent total and the batters played their part. He felt he would get more time and opportunities if he bats at no. 3, before he used to come in at the 39th over or the 40th over which is not ideal for him according to him. Further adds he is working on his bowling too, he feels he is doing fine but he can do better. Stresses the next game will be tough against a strong Australian side and they will need to be at their best. Ends by saying the crowd has been fantastic and he hopes they keep supporting them.
Nothing much to talk about the West Indies' bowling. They struggled right from the first ball, perhaps even before the game started. By dropping Carlos Brathwaite, who was going to be their fifth bowler? Just Cottrell completed his quota of 10 overs. Russell bowled just 6. Gayle bowled just 2. Sad and sorry state of affairs and have to say - this West Indian team does not look like the one which played Pakistan in their opener. With the bat, they perhaps thought they had enough but with the platform they had got, 242/3 in the 40th over, they should have got to 350. Please stay tuned for the presentation.
65 vs West Indies. 61 vs West Indies. 29 vs West Indies. 50 vs Ireland. 75 vs South Africa. 64 vs New Zealand. 121 vs England. 124 today. 589 runs in his last 8 innings. 7 50-plus scores. 3 not outs. Average of 117.80. Strike rate of 101.72. The Jessore born Shakib Al Hasan is surely making everyone's heads turn. With his fifth consecutive 50-plus ODI score and fourth in this World Cup, he is making a statement, regaining his top spot in the run-getters category. He caught the West Indian attack by the horns and did not let them apply any pressure on him. The number 3 position suits him and sure enough - he averages 59.68 over there, best than any other position. The number 1 all-rounder just strut his stuff. Beware Australia who face him next. Beware India too.
The run chase began as if there was no pressure at all. Till this game, not even 250 was chased down in this World Cup. Bangladesh were chasing 322. Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar set the tone with a 52-run opening stand and that was followed by a 69-run stand for the second wicket. Rahim's wicket then triggered the thoughts of a possible collapse but Shakib and Liton steered the ship home safely.
The Taunton crowd is stunned. But in ecstasy and joy. There are barely any West Indian supporters and the ones supporting the Tigers are crying their voices out hoarse. They have witnessed probably one of the most clinical run chases in ODI cricket, let alone a World Cup, normally associated with the likes of England, India or Australia. Today, it is Bangladesh.
51 balls left. 7 wickets in hand. An unbeaten stand of 189 in 135 balls. A centurion. Another 6 short of a century. Boy, this has been one run chase. Lo and behold. Did anyone say Bangladesh will not make it to the semis? Think again.

DROPPED! Very, very difficult chance. Full and outside off, Das comes down the track and smashes it straight back. Cottrell looks to save his face, due to pure reflex action but cannot quite hang on to it. The ball deflects to the leg side but Sheldon quickly gathers himself and runs after the ball and then frustratingly kicks the air in disappointment.

No he can't! Difficult to hit those deliveries over the rope. Very full and outside off, Das jams it through covers for one.
37.3

SIX! Three in a row! This is unreal stuff from Das. He is playing with the mind of the bowler. He expected a short one and shuffles right across. Gets it and he helps it on its way over the fine leg fence. 4 in 4? Also, the 150-run stand is up.
37.2

SIX! This is even better! WOW! Das wants to end it in a hurry here. He makes room and Gabriel bowls it full. He smashes it over the long off fence for a maximum.

1
An attempted bouncer which was well over head height. The umpire has signalled a wide.
35.5

Overthrow! West Indies completely losing their plot here. This is worked towards fine leg. The batters take one. The ball is thrown at the bowler's head where there is no one to collect the ball, it goes down towards long on for another run.
35.4

In the air... and once again it lands in no man's land! Sums up the day for West Indies. Short and around off, Shakib looks to pull, the ball goes off the top edge over the bowler's head. Lands safely and the batters take two.

Fifty for Das now! Talk about grabbing the opportunity with both hands. He was picked in the team for this game and has made an impact. He has played as the perfect foil for Shakib. He gets to his third ODI half ton by working this length ball on middle through mid-wicket for one.

FOUR! Hundred for Shakib! His 9th in ODIs and consecutive ones in this World Cup. Cometh the hour, cometh the man! Bangladesh's best player has delivered when his team needed him the most. A must win game and a big target to chase and Shakib has risen to the occasion. What a way to get to his ton, what a shot to get his ton! Wow! Oshane bowls this full and outside off, he creams it, absolutely creams it through covers and the ball races away to the fence. Raises his bat to soak in the applause. He would love to stay there till the end.

Well fielded! Fuller and on middle, Shakib strokes it towards mid on where Gabriel seemed to have dived early but stops it in the end.
Looks like there is some issue with Sheldon Cottrell's run up. He has just mentioned that to umpire Rod Tucker. He is having some issue while running in and apparently it is a drainage lid.

FOUR! Nicely played! Picked his spot to perfection. Das comes down the track and chips it over mid-wicket, no one in the deep and the ball races away to the fence.
There is a slight delay. Shakib is getting some treatment on his left arm. Not quite sure what has happened. Might be cramps.

Nicely tucks this through mid-wicket and runs hard for the second. Moves into the 90s, does Shakib.
30.2
1
JUST OVER! West Indies desperately need a wicket and Holder almost provides that. A length ball outside off, Das looks to play the pull, but then checks his shot. It ends up being a short-arm jab and just lobs over mid on. Oshane Thomas has to cover some ground from mid on running back, but the batsmen take just a single.

This is on the pads, it is worked through square leg for one.
Chris Gayle has the ball in his hand at the moment. The umpires though are not happy about something. Maybe with the fact that Russell is continuously going off the field. They have asked Fabien Allen to go back and Russell to come onto the field.
DRINKS BREAK.
29 Over
0 | 8 Runs | HH: 200/3
28.6
1
Played to the point region by the batsman. They pick up a single. 200 up for Bangladesh. 122 more needed. The run-rate needed is below 6, Bangladesh need not do anything silly.
28.5

Soft leading edge! Back of a length on off, Das looks to work it on the leg side but gets a leading edge towards mid off.
28.4
1
NOT OUT! Hope never collected the ball! Not sure why they went up and not sure why Shai appealed. This is worked towards mid-wicket and the batters take one. Liton starts off for a second but is sent back by Shakib. The mid-wicket fielder gets to the ball and then fires it to the keeper. Liton seems to have dislodged the bails and then there is an appeal. Replays roll in and they show that Hope did not have the ball in his gloves and even if he had, Das was in with a dive.
Third umpire in play! Is Das run out?
28.3
4
TOP EDGE AND FOUR! Shakib continues riding his luck. Shorter in length and on off, Shakib looks to pull but gets a top edge over the keeper's head. No fielder there and a boundary results. Also, with that boundary, he is now once again the leading run scorer of the Tournament.

FOUR! Another excellent shot! Shakib has played the most difficult shot in the game, the on-drive. Length and on middle, Shakib shows the full face of the bat and strokes it down to the long on fence. Another 50-run stand up for Bangladesh. Important one as the two joined association when Bangladesh had lost a couple of wickets quickly. They need to continue though.

FOUR! Adding salt to the wound here! Yes, it is Liton Das who hit the boundary but it will still hurt Russell. He bangs it short and on middle, Das pulls it nicely over mid-wicket for a boundary.
22.5
1
In the air... and it lands in between two fielders! Russell can't believe it as he walks back in disgust. Shakib continues riding his luck. A good short one outside off, Shakib looks to drag his pull but only gets a top edge. It goes towards fine leg. Hope turns and runs after it. Shannon Gabriel at fine leg, is late to set off. In the end, it lands in between the two and the batters take one. Poor from Gabriel, it was surely an easier catch for him. He must have thought the keeper had it covered. This could prove costly.

It flies towards Hetmyer at deep square leg who runs across to his left but the ball lands short. It hits his thigh and stops and a single is taken.

Andre Russell is back on! 3-0-23-1 so far. He is certainly not 100 percent. Comes jogging in, then bails out. Goes for another jog and tests his hamstring and knee. Here he comes again...

OUT! Tamim is short! Sheldon Cottrell has provided something outstanding. West Indies needed some spark and Cottrell may have just provided it. He goes full and on middle, Tamim strokes it back to the bowler and sets off for a run. Sheldon sticks his left hand out and fields the ball. Seeing that Tamim stops. Sheldon fires the throw to the keeper's end and hits the bull's eye. Tamim looks to get back in with a dive. The players appeal and the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays roll in and they show Tamim is short. He walks back disappointed as a run out was probably the only way he could have got out. He was playing so well. However, a very good innings and a top partnership comes to an end.
Is Tamim gone? Big moment in the game! Has Sheldon Cottrell pulled off something brilliant?

DRINKS! Bangladesh are motoring along quite well here! Their openers started off nicely, Sarkar did fall but Shakib has come out all guns blazing. They are way ahead of the run rate required and all they need now is some sensible batting. The West Indian players look like they have ran out of ideas. Their short ball bowling has not worked and all of a sudden the bowling does not look threatening. They need someone to put their hand up and provide the magic or the game will soon slip out of their hands.

It is too close to the body and hence, the ball hits the higher part of the bat and lobs towards wide first slip where Gayle takes it with a theoretical dive.

01st InningsWest Indies
322 to win for Bangladesh. The pitch does have extra bounce and that might help the West Indies bowlers. Bangladesh though, will aim to keep wickets in hand in Powerplay 1 and try to plan the run chase nicely. Jason Holder would want a win to celebrate his 100th ODI. Let's hope for a good chase.
Shai Hope is down for a chat with Simon Doull. He says he started off a bit slow as he needed time to get in and he is still pleased with the score they have on the board. States they have more pace and height and Hope hopes they can extract more from the surface. Wants his bowlers to take early wickets. Mentions Hetmyer and Holder are very good players and they provided the much-needed impetus.
Bangladesh's bowling was good in patches. They started well but when the wickets were not coming, they began to lose a bit of patience. However, they brought it back in the end and choked the Windies. Mustafizur was sensational in his final 4 overs, going for just 18, after conceding 41 in his first 5. His double-wicket over consisting the scalps of Hetmyer and Russell can be called as a momentum-shifting over. Saifuddin helped himself to 3 wickets as well while captain Mortaza bowled only 8 overs. In fact, there was so much rotation of bowling, that only Saifuddin bowled his full quota of 10 overs!
32/1 in Powerplay 1. Too slow? But that is the norm in this World Cup, with the template being set by India. See off the first 10 overs, then accelerate in a sensible manner, giving your hitters the right number of overs at the death. West Indies lost Gayle early but the middle order played very well today. The second, third and fourth wickets added 236 in 217 balls and with the score reading 242/3 in the 40th over, 350 looked to be on the cards. But Hetmyer's wicket stalled proceedings slightly and the West Indies just about crossed 320.
Hmmm... tough question. Which side will be happier at the moment? West Indies started slowly, then began to compensate, lost their way, got a couple of cameos, lost their way again but in the end, finished strongly. 321 is a good score but Bangladesh will feel they can chase it down.

OUT! Caught! No century for Hope! That is such a sad, sad thing for him! Played so well for so long, got stranded of partners and eventually, neither could he bat through, nor get his century. It is the best ball in the tournament or in ODIs of late. The full toss. An easy put away, that too, on the pads and Hope puts it away as well. But straight to deep backward square leg where Liton Das takes it easily! This is turning out to be a very good finish for Bangladesh.

Holder again lofts this length delivery from Mortaza to long on off the toe end of his bat. The fielder was in two minds whether to go for the the catch or save the boundary. He starts late and dives in front but the ball bounces in front of the fielder and runs away to the fence.

OUT! Caught behind! This time, there is a nick and Russell departs for a blob! Similar ball as the previous one. This is the cutter as well, pitched outside leg but this one has extra bounce. Russell looks to defend but the ball zips away, takes the outside edge and Rahim completes the formalities after diving to his right. Mustafizur completes the formalities of appealing as well, as per the norm. Does not want to get penalized by Glenn McGrath who was penalzied by umpire Hanumant Singh sometime in the early 2000s for not appealing. What an over - 3 runs and 2 wickets! Momentum-shifting?

Appeal for a caught behind! Nothing in it. Fizz himself is unsure. Mustafizur wants a review but Mortaza turns it down. On a length around middle and leg, Russell looks to defend but the ball seams away after pitching and just misses the outside edge. Ultra Edge shows it hit nothing.

RUN OUT MISSED! Everything happening in this over. Hope plays this length delivery outside off to short third man and sets off for a run. Hetmyer from the other end comes halfway down the pitch and stops. There is slight confusion between Hope and Hetmyer in the middle. Saifuddin picks up the ball and has a shy at the striker's end but misses it. Had he hit Hetmyer would have been a goner. But in the end they get a single though a risky one at this stage of the game.

OUT! In the air... taken! Pooran holes out. He walks back after getting off to a start. A good wicket for Bangladesh as he was looking good and has also been in form. Nothing wrong with him playing this shot to be honest, it was in his arc. Full and on middle, Pooran goes down on one knee and looks to clear the long on fence but his bat turns in his hands due to which he does not get the timing he would have liked. There is more height than distance on it and Sarkar at long on takes a good catch. Bangladesh once again get a timely wicket due to which the Windies are not able to get ahead in this game.

OUT! Caught in the deep! No century for Lewis and the Bangladeshis have broken through. The 116-stand is cut short. West Indies are reaching a stage where the run rate needs to be upped a little. That is what Lewis might have thought. Looks to go big, aiming to clear long off, but this one hits the bottom part of his bat. He ends up finding Sabbir Rahman, the substitute at long off. Looks unhappy with himself and trudges off. Shakib was not bowling that well today and hence Lewis may have targetted him. But eventually, Shakib has the last laugh.

Hossain gets away with one there. This is short and on middle, Hope goes back and pulls it but towards square leg who makes a good stop diving to his right. Just needed to beat that fielder and it would have been a boundary.

Landed outside off, driven straight to cover.
This is taking longer than expected. Mosaddek seems to be wanting his left wrist checked and the umpires have taken this opportunity to call for a Drinks Break. Bangladesh have done well so far, they have not let West Indies score freely and have also got the big fish. However, after the early wicket the Windies have managed to fightback with the likes of Lewis and Hope. The two started off slowly but have upped the ante now. West Indies would hope the two could continue whereas, Bangladesh would want to break this stand as quickly as possible.

Tossed up outside off, Lewis drives this through the covers. Mosaddek Hossain covers good ground to his right and slides to stop the ball but while doing so, gets hurt. He is not comfortable and is on his haunches and calls for the physio. Shakib comes and checks on him as well. Meanwhile, the batsmen take a couple.

Another LBW appeal! Now Mustafizur wants a review! Looks like Bangladesh are getting carried away here. This is pitched on a good length around off and seams in off the deck. Hope is hit on the pads in his attempt to flick and up goes the Fizz. Replays detect an inside edge as well.
The Fizz returns. 1-0-8-0 so far. Needs to get into some sort of a rhythm here.

Huge shout for LBW, turned down! Mortaza talks long and hard with Mehedi and Rahim but eventually does not take it. It seemed to be pitching outside leg and hitting outside leg as well. Lewis looked to sweep and the ball went off something towards fine leg. The reason we are saying 'something' is because the umpire has signalled as runs. Looked like it hit the pads though. Two taken. Here come the replays. Pitched on leg stump, going down leg, but missing the bat.

OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Saifuddin gets the big fish. Gayle is out of here without making an impact. A well-deserved wicket for MS and he set the batsman up beautifully. He kept bringing the ball back in till now and suddenly gets this one to angle across. The length and line are also perfect. He bowls it just around off. Gayle once again plays for the inswing which means he plays inside the line. The ball kisses the outside edge and goes low to the left of Rahim who takes a nice diving catch. Bangladesh are elated and this is the ideal start for them after electing to bowl.

Done and dusted with the National Anthems. We are all set for the action to get underway. The West Indies openers, Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis make their way out to the middle. Chris Gayle will take strike and he will be facing Mashrafe Mortaza who has the first new ball in hand. Here we go...
Both the teams are out for their respective National Anthems. It would be Bangladesh's first followed by the West Indian one.
West Indies (Playing XI) - Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (WK), Darren Bravo (IN FOR CARLOS BRATHWAITE), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder (C), Andre Russell, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel.
Bangladesh (Playing XI) - Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (WK), Liton Das (IN FOR MOHAMMAD MITHUN), Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehedi Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (C), Mustafizur Rahman.
West Indies skipper, Jason Holder, says he wanted to bowl too but now they have an opportunity to put up some runs. States they will have to face the first 10 overs carefully and then it should get easy. Admits they lacked intent against England but they are now eager to do well here. Informs they have one change, Bravo coming in for Brathwaite.
Bangladesh skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza, says there are some patches on the wicket. Mentions they are chasing well and hence, they want to bowl first. States they have been on and off, they have practiced hard in the last few days and are ready for this game. Informs there is one change, Liton Das comes in and Mithun sits out.
TOSS - Bangladesh win the toss and elected to field.
PITCH REPORT - Ian Smith starts by saying, the weather is good and it is going to stay good and there is very less chance of rain. Mel Jones now giving the pitch report, says they have had two games on this ground and the wicket should have something for both the batters as well as bowlers. Mentions the batters need to be patient and once they get in, run scoring should be good. Ends by saying the spinners could be used with the new ball as well.
We are almost halfway through the tournament, we are now at a stage where all the teams will be keeping one eye on the points table. Today's game sees two teams who are eager for a victory. West Indies are taking on Bangladesh. The two sides head into this one after receiving a thumping from England. However, this looks to be a more interesting battle. Who will come out on top? We will have to wait and watch.
