Bangladesh beat west indies in ICC world cup match through a record chase

Bangladesh beat West Indies by seven wickets in an ICC world cup match played at Taunton yesterday. Many teams struggled a lot to chase more than 300 runs in the recent matches. However Bangladesh overcame this challenge through a record chase.

Shakib Al Hasan produced one of the great World Cup performances, stringing a domineering 124 not out to his two-wicket haul as he anchored Bangladesh's highest chase in an ODI. In the process, he reached 6000 ODI runs, became Bangladesh's highest run-scorer at a World Cup, the second after Mahmudullah to make two centuries for Bangladesh in the tournament, and added his name to yet another one of the six Bangladesh century stands in World Cups.

Scores: West Indies batted first and made 321 for 8 in 50 overs. In reply Bangladesh reached the victory target losing only 3 wickets and 51 balls to spare.
