Windies assistant coach R.ogether in wake of crushing defeat against Bangladesh

Shai Hope top-scored with 96 from 120 balls while opener Evin Lewis with 70 and Shimron Hetmyer, 50, chipped in with half-centuries to propel West Indies up to 321 for eight off their 50 overs. Bangladesh left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman captured 3-59.

Das, making his World Cup debut, ended with a brilliant 94 not out off 69 balls, hitting a four to take Bangladesh to their target with 51 balls to spare.

Though it was not that easy for Bangladesh to chase such a massive target at the pitch of County Ground but all thanks to the watchful 189-run partnership of Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das who assured the famous victory for Bangladesh at Manchester.

Russell and Thomas claimed one wicket each.

Shakib is now the leading run-getter of the World Cup: 384 in four innings.

"Having said that, we could have been a lot more disciplined with the ball and we let ourselves down in the field as well".

The result leaves West Indies seventh in the standings before they face New Zealand on Saturday.

"As a team, we have to go back to the drawing board, find solutions and go and win the game".

But the Tigers had already posted 330 in the first innings of their win over South Africa earlier in the competition and they were never intimidated by their task against the Windies. "I know what it's like to be the best team", Ambrose was quoted as saying in Bangladesh newspaper Daily Star.

"I reckon a par score on this wicket, with the dimensions of the ground, is probably 360, 365, maybe 370, and we were well short of that", he explained. We always want to score runs as players and also want our partners to score because it's a team game.

'We have reached a new level. We didn't get it today.

"A huge game for both sides, Australia really needs to treat Bangladesh with a lot of respect". If you bowl 90mph and can't put the ball in the right areas, it's a waste of time. The mission to make a first World Cup semifinal received a massive boost. At the other end, Hope was stylish as ever, but on occasions was guilty of picking out the fielder with crisp shots.

Bangladesh had no such challenges in their innings and were well in command from the outset. Left-hander Tamim struck six fours off 53 deliveries in a 52-run opening stand with Soumya, who crunched a pair of fours and sixes before steering fast bowler Russell to Gayle at first slip in the ninth over.

Liton and Shakib hit the accelerator thereafter to sink West Indies, who stay on three points, to their third loss of the tournament and dent their semi-final chances. He had not played an worldwide match for Bangladesh since May 15, when he made 76 off 67 balls opening the innings against Ireland.
