World Cup 2019 Preview West Indies Eye Win Against Bangladesh

However, Liton Das joined Shakib in the middle and the two put together an unbeaten 189-run partnership that took the game away from West Indies. They are the only Bangladesh batsmen to hit centuries in Cricket World Cups.

"Liton Das normally opens or bats at number three but he´s coped with moving down the order and he´s delivered the goods".

It has become crucial for both the teams to win their remaining matches to keep hopes alive for semi-finals.

"We have a chance to go through but we have to win all of our matches", Mashrafe added.

This was no shock, though - Bangladesh have now won five one-day internationals in a row against West Indies and outperformed them in all areas.

"It's obviously one of the best, because the way we chased that run, the way I paced the innings, I was never in a rush". With both teams now locked at three points each, there's little room for complacency in the all-important fixture on Monday. The 128* by Mahmudullah Riyad vs New Zealand in 2015 remains the highest.

Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal made an assured start to the chase before the former guided Andre Russell to straight to Chris Gayle at slip to end the first wicket stand on 52.

Since their return, they have performed more than 150 shows for over 5 million fans in stadiums, arenas and festivals worldwide. They have dominated 14 stadiums and held five summer festival headlining slots around the world as part of the monumental run.

After becoming the fastest to the double of 5000 runs and 250 ODI wickets in the match against South Africa on June 2, Shakib put in another superlative all-round effort to lead Bangladesh's successful run-chase of 322.

Earlier, Shai Hope's 96 and the joint-fastest fifty of the tournament from Shimron Hetmyer inspired an imposing total of 321-8.

Shai Hope hit a patient 121-ball 91 while Shimron Hetmyer produced a quick-fire fifty as West Indies posted a challenging 321 for eight against Bangladesh in their World Cup fixture here Monday.

West Indies' fast bowlers started the tournament dismantling top-order batsmen but their effectiveness has waned and the lack of a plan B was ruthlessly exposed here - 55% of all deliveries were short despite Bangladesh playing that length easily.

Windies captain Jason Holder made a short cameo, hitting 33 runs off 15 balls before he fell prey to Saifuddin.

But Shakib and Das showed that total was nowhere near enough with their sublime display.
