Welcome to Sportstar's Highlights coverage of the Women's World Cup 2022 match between Bangladesh and West Indies at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Friday.

WEST INDIES BEAT BANGLADESH BY FOUR RUNS

PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Hayley Matthews 4/15 & 18(43)

Hayley Matthews: Obviously a bit worrying to see her (Shamilia Connell) go down like that. She is a fighter and I am not sure what's wrong with her but she will be alright. We knew we did not have enough runs on the board, so we needed to produce something special with the ball and all the spinners stepped up to the plate. We bowled well in partnerships and that's what we needed to do. We have played a lot of ODI cricket through 2021 and that has helped us here. Playing a lot more matches, international cricket is helping us in such situations. Our coaching staff continuously keeps working on us and instilling confidence in the players.

WHAT THE CAPTAINS SAID

Nigar Sultana: I think it was a very close match. How our bowlers started was incredible. Pretty disappointed with our batting. We lacked partnerships and I should have played till the end. We have to work on this going forward. We were planning to utilise the conditions and our bowlers managed to do that. We have more games to come and have to take the positives. We lack experience in such situations and if we play more then we will get better.

Stafanie Taylor: She is stable and the medical personnel is taking care of her (Shamilia Connell). It was sad to see her go down but we look at the bright side. It was probably for us to regroup and we did that and changed the momentum. The batters need to come to the party and we are not consistent. We have to be consistent if we are to compete in this competition. Our batting order is long. We have to come together and win games. Afy (Fletcher) was brilliant. It was her first game being back after birth and she was brilliant. It is something we need to talk as a batting group. Where we are and where we need to be. There's no two ways about it. We didn't perform well since the India game and that's a concern for us. We can't really go through the tournament like this.
