    TAUNTON: The first successful chase of a target in excess of 300 at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has been achieved. It came 23 matches into the tournament, when driven by the man for the big stage, Shakib Al Hasan, a spirited Bangladeshoverhauled West Indies‘ 320 for the loss of three wickets and with 43 deliveries remaining at Taunton’s County Ground on Monday.

    A chase of 321 was possible because of Bangladesh’s greatest cricketer. When Shakib walked out to bat in the ninth over of Bangladesh’s chase, the required rate was touching 6.5 an over. His 124* off 99 balls kept up the tempo brilliantly and put will send Bangladesh to Nottingham, where Australia await, on a definite high. (Full report from our very own Jamie Alter)

    Mashrafe Mortaza: As I said yestersay, we still have a chance to go but we need to win all the matches. My knees were hurting a bit, but we have enough bowlers to bowl in the death so it’s not much of a worry. I think the turning point was the two wickets that Mustafizur got, Russell getting out in the first over. Shakib has delivered for the team in this World Cup. Hopefully he will keep going and the rest of the boys will join him. Liton has normally batted at number three and it was a tough ask for an opener to bat at number five, but he did the job.

    Jason Holder: We were around 40-50 runs short. But I stll think we could have been a lot more disciplined with the ball and we let ourselves down in the field as well. We were in a situation where we just didn’t get the momentum in the middle-overs with the bat. We tried to hit the top of the stumps and do it consistently. But there is no excuse, from now on everything is virtually a final for us and we have to be more clinical.

    Shakib Al Hasan: It feels great. To stay at the wicket till the end was the most satisfying thing. I have been working on batting for the last one and a half months, and it has paid off. At the end of the first innings, we believed that if we bat well we can win. It was a reasonable total posted by the West Indies. Not sure why I backed myself for the No. 3 spot (smiles), but I thought if I batted at 3 I will get more opportunities and more time in the middle. If i bat at 5, I will get in at the 30th over or something, and that’s not ideal for me honestly. Mehidy contributed with the ball. I have contributed with the ball too, but I think I can get better than this. We have to bring our A-game against Australia at the top of their form. I hope the fans will keep supporting us, and they have been magnificent throughout the World Cup.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Match 22 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between Bangladesh and West Indies at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton on Monday.

Both teams have three points from four matches, one of which came from their respective washouts.

Needing to gain on the leaderboard to stay in content for the World Cup semi-finals, West Indies and Bangladesh will extend their frequent association in Taunton on Monday seeking to stay alive in the tournament.

Mashrafe Mortaza‘s team should take some degree of confidence from their recent ODI record against West Indies.
