Bangladesh chased down 322 runs in just 41.3 overs with seven wickets in hand to beat West Indies at Taunton during their clash in the 2019 Cricket World Cup tournament.
A sensational century by Shakib Al Hasan and a clinical Liton Das helped Bangladesh chase down a massive 322 runs.
This was the second highest chase by a team in the World Cup tournament’s history.
While Hasan scored an unbeaten 124, Das remained not out after scoring 94. This was Hasan’s second century of the tournament.
Earlier in the first inning, fighting knocks by Shai Hope and Evin Lewis followed by a fiery cameo from Shimron Hetmyer powered West Indies to a massive 321/8. Hope missed his century by a whisker and got out for 96 while Lewis added 70 off 67 deliveries.
Hetmyer unleashed a blistering set of knocks and scored 50 off just 26 deliveries to keep West Indies going.
However during the second inning the Bangladeshi batsmen held their nerves and displayed great determination to go past the West Indies total with eight overs to spare.
