Captain Jason Holder leads his team from the field following their defeat to Bangladesh on Monday

Bangladesh has won the toss and chosen to bowl first against the West Indies at Taunton on Monday.

The Caribbean team started their campaign in England and Wales in impressive style, beating Pakistan by seven wickets but have since lost to Australia, England and Bangladesh.

While aggression with the ball has paid rich dividends for West Indies, their batsmen's shot selection has offset some of that and cost them games.

Former Barbados player Estwick stressed the importance of the two-time world champions sticking together in the face of adversity.

"With 321 on the board, we still [had to] go out there, fight and make a game of it". We then didn't take the opportunities that came our way. It helped the team a lot and at no point did they feel the need to panic. Speaking of his innings, Shakib said that it is obviously one of his best batting performance because of the way they chased the target and the way he paced his innings.

Hope scored 96 off 121 balls with the help of four fours and one six before holing out to Liton at deep backward square-leg off Mustafizur Rahman, who returned best figures of 3/59 in nine overs.

For Bangladesh, their advantage would be that they have had a pretty settled team for the last couple of years now, which is beginning to come into its own as the victory over South Africa showed. "I know if I bat at No.3 I'll get more opportunities, more time to bat", Shakib said. "We just have to go away and put our heads together and find a solution". We're not down and out yet.

"I feel I don't have take further load because I am prepared to handle any situation after working so hard, coming this far and this provides me strength at the back of my mind".

Victory lifts Bangladesh to fifth in the table and maintain their chances of reaching the semi-finals while also effectively ending West Indies' hopes.

"It's looking tough at this present moment, but it's not impossible". I'd love this to continue because there are four games left and if we are to play a semi-final, everyone has to contribute and chip in.

"We didn't get wickets, and also we let one or two chances slip". They faced defeat in the hands of England and New Zealand.Bangladesh will now play against Australis on June 20 at Nottingham.

Shakib said: "We've faced some of the best fast bowlers in the last four matches - every team has at least two bowlers who bowl 140 kph and we've coped well so we're not anxious about that".
