Here are the all-important end-of-play numbers...

Player reaction

More from Scotland's Kyle Coetzer, who made his Scotland's first World Cup century: "It's been nice to score a few runs but at the end of the day it's the result of the game - and that's disappointing today.

"The guys will be a bit distraught up there - we worked so hard and we feel like we've deserved that win in the World Cup. We've still got a couple of games left, so fingers crossed."


Just waking up? You've missed a decent game of cricket. In a nutshell, Kyle Coetzer's 156 formed the basis of Scotland's 318-8. It was the highest score by an associate batsman at the World Cup, while Scotland's team total was a national record on the big stage.

Unfortunately, Bangladesh never looked troubled on their way to victory with Tamim, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur and Shakib all hitting half-centuries. On the plus side, Josh Davey took two more wickets to move to second on the list of leading wicket-takers at the tournament.

The full report is online now.

Captain's view

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza: "The boys have done really well. Tamim was outstanding and Mushfiqur and Shakib were brilliant at the end. Our bowlers still haven't bowled well but it's good our batsmen have scored runs. It will be difficult against England but we will do our best. We still have two chances so if we can't beat England, we'll try to beat New Zealand."

Captain's view

Scotland captain Preston Mommsen: "It was tough to take. We did a lot of things right but we couldn't put the full package together. We were happy with 318 but we knew it was still a good wicket. We couldn't create enough chances to take 10 wickets out there. I tried to keep things fresh and keep the batsmen guessing but they managed the run-chase really well.

On Kyle Coetzer's 156: "It was a huge moment for Kyle Coetzer and for Scotland, it was brilliant to see him at his best. Hopefully people back home are very proud."

As for Scotland, you do worry for them against Australia and Sri Lanka. Bangladesh eased to their target of 319 today. They were never truly troubled despite being a batsman down due to opener Anamul Haque injuring his shoulder in the field.

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"Sabbir came in at the end when there was a little bit of tension around and struck a couple of sixes. They have batsmen in form and when they get to Adelaide, you can see them causing the England bowlers a headache."

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"England will certainly have been watching this. Bangladesh may have gone for 318, but they won the game and they won the game comfortably in the end - they were unruffled. So watch out England."

Remember, Bangladesh play England next. Eoin Morgan's side can't afford any more slip-ups.

Man of the match

Man of the match Kyle Coetzer, who made 156: "It's not the way we wanted to end the game. We didn't create enough pressure to pick up a few wickets.

"We would have taken that score. But we didn't get many opportunities to get those wickets. They batted really well."

Henry Clarson: Ah well, Scotland will just have to beat Australia and Sri Lanka instead. Congrats to Bangladesh. Thanks for the commentary, gents.

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"That's no disgrace for the Scots today. The batsmen fired for the first time and gave them a chance. We knew it was only a chance - not a near certainty - because this is a belting wicket.

"Maybe they weren't quite as disciplined enough in the field - they gave away too many free runs - and there's not enough firepower in that Scotland attack."

The two sets of players shake hands. A job well done by a delighted Bangladesh.

So, Bangladesh are heading for a likely winner-takes-all showdown with England in Adelaide on Monday. Scotland? They're out, with just two games remaining. They are against Australia and Sri Lanka.

Champagne moment

Bangladesh win by six wickets

And there it is... Shakib carves four through backward point to bring up his 50 and win the game for Bangladesh.

Ban 318-4 (Shakib 48, Sabbir 42)

Sabbir tucks into a cover drive to bring four and level the scores. One needed for victory.

Ban 313-4

Even Mel Gibson, as Braveheart, would give this one up as lost now - the first ball of the 48th over being driven through the covers for four by Shakib. Six now needed.

Ban 309-4 (need 10 off 18)

The Bangladesh supporters are striking up into celebration now - some fans getting the flags together and embarking on a lap off the ground. Wardlaw's block-hole stuff works until he is too full and is pushed down the ground for four by Shakib. Eight from the over.

Henry Clarson: Backstage, the woman with the ample frame is now gargling.

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"This is not the closest they've come to victory, but when they got 318 on the board they must have felt they had an even chance."

Ban 301-4 (need 18 off 24)

It's slipping away from Scotland even more - Josh Davey's yorker off radar and Sabbir helps himself to four backward of square. The same batsman then hammers a full toss through the off side for another boundary to bring up the 50 partnership off 45 balls. Preston Mommsen looks to the skies for inspiration. His side look out for the count now.

Ban 289-4 (need 30 off 30)

The Flower of Scotland is prominent on the associate nation's kit, forming the team emblem on both shirts and trousers. It's wilting a little now though as the Tigers begin to run rampant in the late afternoon sunshine. Iain Wardlaw comes back and bowls full, it's the best he's been all day. Just four from the over.

Simon Mann

BBC Test Match Special

"Bangladesh must have been a bit nervous at the interval after Scotland made 300, but their big players have made a contribution today."

Andrew Morris: Same as Afghanistan match, Scotland ruing the lack of strike and/or tight bowlers... they release pressure too easily.

Ban 285-4 (need 34 off 36)

Josh Davey, the second highest wicket-taker in the World Cup, is brought back by an increasingly-desperate Scotland. It must be chastening to see the high of posting 300 eclipsed by a team nudging, nurdling and blasting their way past the target with plenty of wickets and balls to spare. It happened to England against Sri Lanka, and it looks to be happening to another British team here.

Shakib is making hay now - clearing his front leg and clattering another six over wide mid-on. What a shot.

Ban 277-4 (need 42 off 42)

Scotland skipper Preston Mommsen, whose beard appears to be growing bushier by the over, looks a worried man now. Especially after a six from the bat of Sabbir sails over long-on's head. That's a catch for those on the cherry-pickers.

Vic Marks

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

"With one wicket, this can turn round, especially if they get Shakib, who is the helmsman. I don't know how they're going to get him out, but he can get out..."

Ban 268-4 (need 51 off 48)

Shakib wants to get this over and done with. He pulls Ali Evans for four and then takes a single. Sabbir joins in the carnage by whacking six over cow corner. That changes the momentum.

Ban 257-4 (target 319)

Shakib is the man to see Bangladesh over the line, and he's desperate to get on strike and relieve the nervous Sabbir. When he does face up to Majid Haq, he surprisingly just pushes a single to mid-on. Five from the over.

Scorecard update

Bangladesh 252-4 from 40 overs (target 319)

Fall of wickets: 5-1 (Sarker 2), 144-2 (Mahmudullah 62), 201-3 (Tamim 95), 247-4 (Mushfiqur 60)

Test Match Special commentary

Ban 252-4 (need 67 runs from 60 balls)

The nerves are starting to permeate through the Bangladesh line-up. From looking like they'd coast over the line and be smoking cigars with their feet up by 45 overs, they are now struggling to find their next run - which comes when Sabbir fortuitously edges Ali Evans through the vacant slip region for four.

Ban 248-4 (target 319)

Sabbir, with an ODI best of 53, is the new batsman and some smart fielding by Majid Haq off his own bowling stops the right hander getting off the mark from the first delivery he faces. Five dots and then the fielders push back to offer the new man a single which he duly takes.


Mushfiqur c MacLeod b Evans 60 (Ban 247-4)

A gladiatorial roar comes from tall fast bowler Ali Evans as Calum MacLeod holds his nerve to catch a steepler from the bat of dangerman Mushfiqur at long-on. Game on?

Former Bangladesh cricketer Athar Ali Khan on TMS: "It's been a fine innings from Mushfiqur. He packs a punch, is a sweet timer of the ball and it is good to see him come up the order as well."

50 for Mushfiqur

Ban 242-3 (target 319)

Just waking up in Scotland? Let me bring you up to date. In a nutshell, your team reached 318-8 thanks to Kyle Coetzer's amazing 156. However, Bangladesh are making light work of the chase so far and now need less than 100 runs to pick up their second win of the tournament.

Iain Wardlaw continues to be expensive - Mushfiqur bringing up his half-century off 38 balls with a six over extra cover. He then carves four over point. What a great display of batting. He's enjoying it as he punches the air and smiles to himself. Fifteen from the over.


Ban 227-3

Bruce Oxenford waves his arms about, meaning we're into the batting powerplay. There's instantly more urgency from the batsmen as they put the fielders under pressure with sharp running between the wickets. On the sidelines, Anamul Haque sits with a lot of strapping on his injured right shoulder. He's had a painful day, and is likely to be ruled out of the rest of the tournament. Shakib's four through mid-wicket makes it 10 from the over.

Ban 217-3 (Mushfiqur 44 off 34)

Mushfiqur almost perishes in similar style to a couple of the Scotland batsmen as he offers up a leading edge to a ball which sticks in the pitch and the bowler, Matt Machan, can't quite take a diving caught and bowled. The little batsman responds by driving the next ball through the off side for four.

How's stat?

Andrew Samson

BBC Test Match Special statistician

"Bangladesh, playing in their 29th World Cup match, have endured the longest wait for a first individual 100.

"Sri Lanka's first World Cup 100 came in their 27th match (Aravinda de Silva's 145 v Kenya at Kandy in 1996)."
