Shakib Al Hasan struck his second century in World Cup 2019.   -  getty images

Shakib's second hundred of the tournament and Liton Das' quickfire 69-ball 94 powered the Bangla Tigers to a comprehensive win in the end. Bangladesh are now fifth in the points table. A disappointing end to what was a fine outing for the Windies, especially with the bat. Shai Hope, Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer all struck fifties to help the team to 321/8. For Bangladesh, Mohammad Saifuddin and Mushtafizur Rahman both picked three wickets each.

========================

Bangladesh has gone past 300. Only 20 needed now. Well, well: make that seven. Liton cracks two boundaries to take the Bangla Tigers closer to victory. Liton Das does it in style! Takes Bangladesh over the line with a boundary. They've cruised home with seven wickets to spare.

BAN 294/3 after 38 overs: Liton Das is turning it on. He's in a hurry to get to the finish line. Welcomes Gabriel back into the attack with a hat-trick of sixes. The partnership is now 155. Liton has moved into the seventies. Nothing's going West Indies' way. An outside edge off Shakib's bat runs away for four as well. Bangladesh needs 28 runs in 72 balls.

BAN 270/3 after 37 overs: Runs coming thick and fast for Bangladesh now... well they've been coming at that rate for awhile now. But victory is in sight. Shakib collects another boundary off Cottrell and West Indies' hopes are fast fading.

BAN 250/3 in 34.2 overs: The partnership between Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan is now 118. Meanwhile, Liton Das too brings up his 50. Bangladesh have gone past the 250-run mark.

Shakib Al Hasan brings up his ninth ODI hundred, his second this edition. And he gets there with a boundary. He has been in scintillating form, has Shakib. Bangladesh needs 74 runs in 95 balls.

BAN 238/3 in 33 overs: It is now 84 runs off 17 overs, at just 4.94 runs an over as Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan add 105 runs in just 84 balls. Shakib is just 5 runs away from another scintillating 100 while Liton is on 42 off 37 balls.

BAN 228/3 in 32 overs: 13 runs off the Chris Gayle over as West Indies is running out of ideas to stop the Shakib and Liton onslaught. The duo have added 95 off 78 balls as Bangladesh is cruising along in pursuit of 322.

BAN 210/3 in 30 overs: Chris Gayle is introduced into the attack and he doesn't make a difference. The field which is open gives the Bangladesh batsmen to take the singles at ease and Gayle gifts five wides too! Bangladesh needs 112 runs in 20 overs to win.

Stat attack: 22 extras bowled by West Indies. All wides!

BAN 200/3 in 29 overs: Shakib Al Hasan, on 87 off just 71 balls with 12 fours, holds the key. Liton Das is doing the sensible thing, giving support to the senior batsman. The partnership is now worth 67 off just 60 balls and Liton has contributed only 18 of it. Bangladesh needs 122 runs in 126 balls, at around 5.8 runs an over.

Stat attack: Shakib Al Hasan has become the highest run-scorer at the World Cup, overtaking Aaron Finch's tally of 343 runs. He now has 347 runs with four consecutive 50-plus scores.

BAN in 166/3 25 overs: At the half-way stage Bangladesh is sitting pretty at 166/3. It needs 156 runs in the second half of its innings at just about 6.2 runs an over. Wickets are important and the partnership between Shakib and Litton Das is now 33 off 36 balls.

BAN 153/3 in 23 overs: Shakib Al Hasan is now dropped twice in as many overs. First by Shimron Hetmyer in the last over and now by Shai Hope and Shannon Gabriel who don't communicate clearly. A boundary in the last ball of the over also brings up the 150 for Bangladesh.

BAN 146/3 in 22 overs: Shakib Al Hasan and Litton Das have a job on hands. Bangladesh needs 176 runs in 28 overs and the partnership is now 13 runs off 18 balls. This fourth wicket partnership is the key for both the teams.

BAN 139/3 in 20.1 overs: Fourth 50+ score for Shakib Al Hasan in this World Cup. He is having an excellent tournament. He has got to the landmark in 40 balls with 7 fours.

BAN 133/3 in 19 overs: Two wickets in the space of nine balls and West Indies has taken the upper hand, slightly. The West Indies bowlers have the cushion of runs. Mushfiqur Rahim tries to play one down the leg and only manages a faint edge that was taken neat by Shai Hope. He is distraught and so is the Bangladesh dressing room. Bangladesh needs 189 runs in 31 overs, a little over six an over.

 

BAN 121/2 in 17.3 overs: This is top class stuff from Sheldon Cottrell. A runout was the only likely way a wicket would come for West Indies and they have done it that way. Cottrell catches Tamim Iqbal short of his crease and the southpaw departs for 48 (53 balls, 6 fours). Tamim played it back to the bowler and while the tranfer of weight happened he just strayed away from his crease. Cottrell had just a split second to throw the ball at the stumps at the strikers end and does it with precision. Tamim gets into a desperate dive but the LED in the timber lights up. Mushfiqur Rahim joins Shakib Al Hasan.

BAN 119/1 in 17 overs: Seven runs off the Oshane Thomas over as Shakib and Tamim slay the mediocre West Indies bowling attack. The bowlers are undoing all the hard work put in by the batsmen. Shakib is looking in great touch, he took a short ball early and pulled it to the deep mid wicket area for a four. Top class stuff. The partnership is 67 off 52 balls.

BAN 108/1 in 15 overs: Bangladesh is going steady and strong. Tamim and Shakib are well set and on course to scale the target!

 

Shakib Al Hasan gets to 6000 ODI runs.

BAN 103/1 in 14 overs: Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar are slaying the West Indies attack. The duo added 51 off 34 balls and are motoring along. Bangladesh needs 219 runs in 34 overs. Tamim is looking in good touch — evident when he just smashed the ball on the up with a flat bat between cover and mid-off for a boundary off Shannon Gabriel.

BAN 81/1 in 11 overs: Tamim Iqbal is getting to form. He slams Andre Russell for two boundaries and gets himself to a run-a-ball 36 after a slow start. Bangladesh would be loving this phase — Tamim looking confident and an experienced Shakib at the other end.

Bangladesh needs 252 more runs in 40 overs with nine wickets remaining.

BAN 70/1 in 10 overs: End of the first powerplay and safe to say Bangladesh has the upper hand. Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan have a huge task on hand. 14 runs have come off the Jason Holder over as Tamim slams two boundaries and Shakib helps himself to one.

BAN 52/1 in 8.2 overs: Andre Russell strikes. Soumya Sarkar tries to play one on the off side but manages to guide the ball to Chris Gayle at slips. It brings Shakib Al Hasan to the middle.

BAN 40/0 in 7 overs: The West Indies bowlers are keeping it tight but a couple of loose balls undo all the hard work. Tamim has been consuming a lot of deliveries (his strike rate is just 47 - 11 runs off 23 balls) and that shouldn't put pressure on himself or Soumya Sarkar.

BAN 34/0 in 5 overs: 18 runs of the Sheldon Cottrell over. Soumya Sarkar pulls the first ball of the over for a six and then nudges the next one to the fine leg boundary. Five wides add to West Indies' misery as Bangladesh gets off to a good start.

BAN 16/0 in 4 overs: Tamim Iqbal is taking his time while Soumya Sarkar is looking in fine touch. Bangladesh needs the duo to give them a good start.

BAN 11/0 in 2 overs: Soumya Sarkar latches on to a length ball from Jason Holder and sends it to the fence at wide long-off as Bangladesh gets off to a steady start.

Jason Holder with the new ball at the other end.

Stat attack: The highest target Bangladesh have successfully chased down in ODIs is 319 (against Scotland in WC2015).

BAN 5/0 in 1 over: A short delivery from Cottrell finds the ropes at the cover boundary as Tamim launches on to it with full force.

Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal to begin the run chase; Sheldon Cottrell with the new ball.

=============================

We'll be back in a while for the chase.

WI 321/8 in 50 overs: 10 runs off the last over that included one six and two wides. Saifuddin castles Darren Bravo for 19 (15 balls, 2 sixes) in the final ball of the innings. The batsmen have come to the party, Bangladesh bowlers have let it go in the middle overs after a tight first quarter of the game. West Indies would have loved more especially after the the Leiws-Hope stand and Lewis-Hetmyer-Holder cameos, but now it is time for the Bangladesh batsmen who must come to the party. As for the West Indies bowlers, they have the backing of a good total on the board.

Mohammad Saifuddin to complete proceedings in the first innings.

WI 310/7 in 48.5 overs: The Bangladesh players go upstairs for a hit-wicket call on Oshane Thomas and the on-field umpires' soft signal is not out. The third umpire agrees with his counterpart on the field explaining that the batsman had completed his shot before he hit the bail.

WI 305/7 in 48 overs: Darren Bravo smacks the ball over long-on onto the tiled roof, bringing up the West Indies' 300 in style. Six distance: 88m.

WI 297/7 in 47 overs: Shai Hope departs four runs short of a well-deserved century, holing at deep square leg to Litton Das for 96 off 121 balls. Hope didn't connect the previous two balls and the probably the pressure was mounting as the West Indies approach 300.

Oshane Thomas joins Darren Bravo.

WI 288/6 in 45 overs: It is now up to Darren Bravo and Shai Hope to take West Indies to a position of strength.

WI 282/6 in 43.4 overs: Jason Holder was looking in excellent touch and he has lost concentration and skies one to Mahmudullah. A full toss from Saifuddin and Holder cannot manage to get the distance. It was in the air for ages and Mahmudullah nicely settles underneath it. The cameo of 33 off 15 balls ends and West Indies in a position of strength.

WI 268/5 in 42.3 overs: Records are tumbling. After Shimron Hetmyer sends one 104 m; Jason Holder betters it. He sends the ball 105 m away, way beyond the cow corner ropes. West Indies in top gear!

WI 254/5 in 41 overs: Jason Holder wastes no time. First ball he smacks it into the crowds at the deep midwicket fence and then follows it up with a four in the cover region. West Indies in no mood to relent.

WI 243/5 in 40 overs: Dre Rus doesn't make any impact. He is caught by Mushfiqur Rahim for no score, in two balls, and Mustafizur Rahman has struck twice in one over removing two dangerous batsmen. Jason Holder and Shai Hope would love to bat this last 10 overs out and put WI in a position of supremacy.

WI 242/4 in 39.3 overs: Mustafizur gets his man. Hetmyer slams this one hight up, it stays in the orbit for ages untill gravity decides to do its work. Tamim Iqbal judges it well and takes a good catch diving forward at seep square leg boundary. Hetmyer is out for 50 (26 balls) and it brings Andre Russell in.

 

WI 241/3 in 39.1 overs: Shimron Hetmyer slams the joint-fastest fifty of CWC 2019. He has got to the landmark in just 25 balls with 4 fours and 3 sixes.

WI 232/3 in 37.3 overs: Shimron Hetmyer sends one off Mosaddek Hossain to a mammoth 104 meters and it is out of the ground. The ball needs to be changed. He is on 44 off just 20 balls. West Indies on a carnage at Taunton. The over ends with 14 against Hossain's name and West Indies is 234/3 in 38 overs.

Number crunching: Last five overs: 60 runs; last two overs: 36 runs.

WI 210/3 in 36 overs: Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer have added 51 off 22 balls. 17 runs off the Mohammad Saifuddin over a Hetmyer launches him into the orbit twice. He first clobbers it over deep square leg in the fourth ball of the over and then slog sweeps the last ball of the over into the crowd beyond the deep midwicket boundary. Hetmyer is on 32 off 15 balls while Hope is on 78 off 97 balls. West Indies are in top gear!

WI 193/3 in 35 overs: Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer are taking the Bangladesh bowlers to the cleaners. They have added 34 runs off just 16 balls and milked Mustafizur Rahman for 19 runs in the 35th over. Hope charged down the track and cleared the field over long-on with ease for a six in the second ball of the over and hooks the next ball to the fine leg fence with vengence. Five wides off the next ball adds to the carnage but West Indies is in a happy place now!

WI 159/3 in 32.2 overs: Just when Nicholas Pooran looked set to take on the Bangladesh bowling attack, he skies one to Soumya Sarkar off Shakib Al Hasan. West Indies loses its third wicket. Shakib has given the breakthrough for the second time in the match, both breaking good partnerships. Easy work for Soumya Sarkar in the deep. Shimron Hetmyer joins Shai Hope.

WI 156/2 in 31 overs: Nicholas Pooran is looking to shift gears early. He is on 24 off just 25 balls with two fours and 1 six. He has added 34 off 39 balls with Shai Hope. West Indies have a great chance at an above-par score if these two take off from here.

Stat attack: This is Shai Hope’s sixth consecutive fifty-plus score against Bangladesh in ODIs. His last six ODI innings against them - 50* (today), 74, 87, 109, 108*, 146*.

WI 150/2 in 29.2 overs: Nicholas Pooran slams this one off Mehidy Hasan for a six and it lands on the roof in Taunton. It breaks a tile too on the roof in the process and the umpires are now changing the ball. This was a monstrous strike!

WI 132/2 in 27.3 overs: 50 for Shai Hope. He has got to his half-century in 75 balls with three fours. More importantly, Hope must now consolidate and stay till the death overs for West Indies to put up a fighting score.

WI 130/2 in 27 overs: Shai Hope is nearing his landmark of 50. He is three runs short and with Nicholas Pooran he has added 8 runs so far after the dismissal of Evin Lewis.

WI 122/2 in 24.3 overs: Six, two and caught! Evin Lewis departs for 70 (67 balls, 6 fours, 2 sixes) as he falls to Shakib Al Hasan. Shakib sends one full, outside off and Lewis targets the long-off fence but does not get the elevation right. Sabbir Rahman in the deep takes an easy catch. Nicholas Pooran is the new man in, joining Shai Hope.

 

WI 108/1 in 23 overs: 14 runs off the Shakib Al Hasan over and West Indies, Evin Leiws, in particular has taken off. The 100-run partnership also comes up as West Indies is accelerating.

WI 95/1 in 22.1 overs: Fifty for Evin Lewis. He has got to the landmark in 59 balls with four fours and one six. A much needed fifty for the opener and Shai Hope sprints for a handshake. His position as an opener can now be consolidated.

WI 86/1 in 20 overs: The first phase of 20 overs has passed and West Indies have consolidated its position in the middle. The partnership between Lewis and Hope is now 80 (100 balls) and this would be the right time for the duo to accelerate. Meanwhile, Lewis is just five short of a half-century.

WI 75/1 in 18 overs: Mosaddek Hossain has been introduced into the attack and has bowled a beautiful over, with his off-breaks, as just one runs comes off it. The partnership is slowly growing and it is now 69 off 88 balls.

WI 64/1 in 15 overs: Lewis and Hope have brought their half-century partnership for the second wicket. The duo have accelerated a bit in the last five overs, scoring 33 runs. It is just what West Indies need at this point of time. Mehidy Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman, bowling in tandem, lack the variety, the pace or spin to make overs count. Mashrafe Mortaza needs to put his thinking cap on as quickly as possible.

WI 53/1 in 13 overs: Shai Hope and Evin Lewis have added 46 runs in 57 balls as West Indies seems to have found its feet back in the match. They are motoring along at just over 4 runs an over. Lewis has found it going against Mashrafe Mortaza, hitting him for a six over long-off in the 11th over and forcing one to the midwicket fence in the 13th.

WI 32/1 in 10 overs: A slow start from the West Indies batsmen. Bangladesh have used four bowlers in the first powerplay — Mashrafe Mortaza, Mohammad Safiuddin, Mustafizur Rahman and Mehidy Hasan. The variety in the attack has, perhaps, kept West Indies more on the backfoot.

WI 29/1 in 8 overs: Shai Hope slams Mustafizur Rahman off the back foot through covers and gets a four as he along with Evin Lewis are building the West Indies innings. A 23-run association so far 28 balls between these two.

WI 18/1 in 6 overs: Two boundaries off this over from Saifuddin — one from Evin Lewis and one from Shai Hope. Hope first took on a short ball and sent it to the deep midwicket fence with a ferocious pull while Lewis is offered width and treats it with disdain to the point fence.

WI 8/1 in 5 overs: An extremely slow start from West Indies. Shai Hope has played six balls and hasn't managed a run while Evin Leiws is also striking at a rate of just over 54 at the other end. Some slight movement off the seam for the Bangaldesh bowlers and the Windies are just taking their time.

WI 6/1 in 3.2 overs: Mohammad Saifuddin strikes. He removes Chris Gayle for 0. Saifuddin gets some movement off the seam, away from the batsman, and it takes the outside edge of Chris Gayle's bat and Mushfiqur Rahim takes a good low catch. Shai Hope is the new man in.

WI 2/0 in 2 overs: How often do we see this? Chris Gayle played 11 balls and hasn't opened his account yet. Evin Lewis takes a single off the first ball and Safiuddin has managed to keep Gayle quiet.

WI 0/0 in 1 over: Mashrafe Mortaza has kept the 'Universe Boss' quiet in the first over. Mortaza dished out deliveries outside the off stump, some short and wide too, but Gayle has chosen to let it go. A quiet first over for West Indies. Mohammad Saifuddin will start proceedings from the other end.

Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis are out in the middle. Mashrafe Mortaza starts for Bangladesh.

Time for the National Anthems. The players, the officials and the crowd in all readiness.

Here are the playing XIs:

West Indies: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope (wk), Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder (cap), Andre Russell, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas and Shannon Gabriel.

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Shaifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (cap) and Mustafizur Rahman,

Team news: There is just one change in both the teams. Darren Bravo replaces Carlos Brathwaite in West Indies while Lion Das comes in place of Mithun for Bangladesh.

Toss update: Bangladesh wins toss, to bowl first

Pitch Report: Ian Smith says, "There's very little chances of rain and reckons the ground is not very big and the batsmen can make good numbers very quickly. There's a little bit of grass and will help the seamers but the batsmen will be able to score runs, provided they spend little time in the middle. Overall should be a good competition between bat and ball."

The Preview

West Indies must find a way to overcome a Bangladesh side who has become nemesis opponents as both teams look to rouse flagging World Cup campaigns.

Bangladesh has won seven of their last nine ODIs against West Indies and on recent evidence will fancy its chances going into Monday's Taunton clash.

A tri-series staged in Ireland last month saw Bangladesh, batting second on each occasion against West Indies, win each fixture emphatically.

Its dominance of the rivalry over the past two years will be put to the test under the strain of World Cup competition, with both sides desperately in need of maximum points.

World Cup 2019: West Indies are good and bad for us - Mortaza

Historically, West Indies holds the edge in World Cup meetings between the teams, having won its three previous completed meetings in the competition, in 1999, 2007 and 2011.

On the last of those occasions, Bangladesh was bundled out for just 58 and West Indies won by nine wickets.

SWOT Analysis: Windies banks on firepower to go deep

A notable figure in the Bangladesh camp is bowling coach Courtney Walsh, formerly a much-feared West Indies paceman, and he should be able to offer batsmen an insight into how to handle the current generation of Caribbean quicks.

Lloyd: ‘WI has the firepower to go all the way in WC’

It may have won just one match so far but legendary Clive Lloyd feels the West Indies has got the firepower in both its batting and bowling to go all the way in the ongoing World Cup.

West Indies has won one match out of four till now, having lost two while the other one was a wash-out.

“Eleven points will probably be enough to get a Team into the top four, and considering they still have the likes of New Zealand and India to play, it is now or never,” Lloyd wrote in a column for the ICC website.

Holder: We're the favourites against Bangladesh

Lloyd, who captained West Indies to World Cup victories in 1975 and 1979, however admitted that it is high time that the Caribbeans come out fighting and show what they are made of.

“Defeats and bad days are always going to happen in a tournament like this, and now we just have to hope that the West Indies have got all of theirs out of the way.

“They need to win nearly every group game from here on if they are to have a chance of making the semi-finals,” wrote Lloyd.

World Cup 2019: Holder has no regrets about gambling on Russell’s fitness

His troublesome knee flaring up time and again but West Indies skipper Jason Holder insists that “match-winner” Andre Russell’s fitness is a gamble worth taking.

The West Indies all-rounder once again pulled up a knee injury during its eight-wicket defeat to England in a World Cup match 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 June 6.

“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 paying 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 has suffered its second defeat in four games but Holder is confident of his team making the semifinals of the World Cup.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT THEY SAID

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza: "We still have five matches left. So you never know. You don't have to think [about] all those five matches. Tomorrow's match is very important. We have to take one by one. It's been ups and downs. But still a lot of matches left. We can make the difference. And we have to believe in it, which I believe that my team is believing."

West Indies captain Jason Holder: "I don't want to sit here and try to perceive what they would come with, but we're open to anything. Traditionally they rely heavily on their spinners. We don't expect them to move too far away from it. It's a smallish ground. I saw the wicket today as well. There's quite a bit of grass on it. We'll see how it plays. But we know what we're expecting in a sense from Bangladesh. And I can't see them being much different from that."
