WI vs BAN -cwc19

Sports Desk – The 23rd match of the ICC World Cup 2019 was played between West Indies and Bangladesh at The Cooper Associates County Ground,Taunton. Bangladesh beat west indies by 7 wickets. In this match Bangladesh won the toss and opt to bowl. West Indies batted first with 321 runs score.

Shakib Al Hasan led the charge with the bat to guide Bangladesh to a memorable victory. Chasing 322, Bangladesh romped past the opponents by 7 wickets courtesy Shakib’s 124* and Liton Das’ 94 not out.

Bangladesh skipper: As I said yesterday, we still have a chance to go but we need to win all the matches. My knees were hurting a bit, but we have enough bowlers to bowl in the death so it’s not much of a worry. I think the turning point was the two wickets that Mustafizur got, Russell getting out in the first over.

West Indies skipper: We were around 40-50 runs short. But I stll think we could have been a lot more disciplined with the ball and we let ourselves down in the field as well.
