The Cricket World Cup has had it's fair share of exciting upsets and thrilling matches and another one to add to the list is the Bangladesh v West Indies match where Bangladesh won off an incredible century from Shakib Al Hasan.

When on one side Das knocked unbeaten 94 runs off just 69 deliveries on the other side Hasan also made unbeaten 124 runs off 99 balls.

Bangladesh´s highest one-day global run chase put them behind only Ireland´s 329-7 against England in 2011 in the history of successful World Cup chases. I think our coaching staff deserves much credit because what used to happen earlier is that we used to panic in the dressing room. "Liton (Das) has normally batted in the top three and it was a tough ask for him to bat at number five, but he did the job".

Chasing 322 to win, Bangladesh got off to a solid start as Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar amassed a 52-run partnership before Sarkar was caught by Gayle at slip off the bowling of Russell for 29.

Jason Holder says the West Indies face a tough task to reach the World Cup semifinals after their dismal defeat against Bangladesh.

The West Indies knew victory would take them into fifth spot, but the optimism generated by a crushing first-up win over Pakistan has quickly dissipated.

West Indies posted a competitive 321/8 in 50 overs batting first with Shai Hope cracking 96, Evin Lewis scoring 70 and Shimron Hetmyer contributing an even 50.

Allrounder Shakib Al Hasan is fit to play after straining his left thigh while scoring a century against England nine days ago.

Mashrafe Mortaza's side remain in with a chance of reaching the semi-finals after their second win in five matches. "Having said that, every game is a final and we have to pull ourselves up", added Holder whose team are seventh in the standings and will struggle to make the semi-finals.

Speaking about his innings, Shakib said: "It's obviously one of the best, because the way we chased that run and the way I paced the innings".

The two, who came together at the start of the 19th over, punished some erratic bowling while riding their luck at times, and scored at a breakneck pace throughout their unbroken fourth-wicket stand of 189 runs.

Shakib, who struck 121 against England in a losing cause, also became the highest run-getter in the tournament so far.

Shakib finished with 16 fours, while Das, playing his first World Cup match, bludgeoned eight fours and four sixes. Bravo, however, has batted only once and made a four-ball duck.

Hetmyer matched the 25-ball effort from Australia's Alex Carey as the fastest 50 in the tournament, while Holder struck 33 from 15 balls before Hope holed out in the deep to fall four short of his century.

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.
