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

  4. 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."

  5. Round-up

    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.

  6. 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."

  7. 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."

  8. Post update

    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.

  9. Post update

    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."

  10. Post update

    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."

  11. Post update

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

  12. 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."

    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."

  15. Post update

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

  16. Post update

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. Ban 318-4 (Shakib 48, Sabbir 42)

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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. Join the debate at #bbccricket

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

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. Post update

    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."

  25. Join the debate at #bbccricket

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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. Scorecard update

    Bangladesh 252-4 from 40 overs (target 319)

    Batsmen: Shakib 19, Sabbir 5

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

    Bowling figures: Wardlaw 7-0-59-1, Davey 8-0-48-2, Evans 8-1-47-1, Machan 7-0-45-0, Haq 8-0-35-0, Berrington 2-0-18-0

    Scotland 318-8: Coetzer 156 from 134 balls (17 fours, four sixes)

    Bangladesh won toss

    Test Match Special commentary

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  33. WICKET

    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?

  34. Post update

    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."

  35. 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.

  36. Powerplay

    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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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)."

  39. Ban 210-3 (target 319)

    It's a great ground to be watching cricket. Some haven't moved a muscle on the grassy banks, others just mill around and watch from different vantage points. Then there's a group of Scotland fans who have brought their own deckchairs.

    Josh Davey's seventh over costs Scotland two singles, while Mushfiqur is almost run out after being startled by a slower bouncer which scons him on the helmet. All Richie Berrington had to do was hit. He was inches away.

  40. How's stat?

    Andrew Samson

    BBC Test Match Special statistician

    "Josh Davey is the second highest wicket-taker at this World Cup with 11 - two behind the leader Tim Southee of New Zealand.

    "The seamer also has the most wickets for Scotland in a World Cup tournament, beating John Blain's 10 in 1999."

  41. Ban 208-3 (Mushfiqur 38, Shakib 3)

    Scotland continue to persevere with Matt Machan, who has gone for 34 in his first five overs. They should be trying to get another couple of wickets with their strike bowlers. It's now or never... surely? Instead the batsman knock the ball safely into the gaps and pick up four easy singles.

  42. Ban 204-3 (target 319)

    So, Tamim's 95 came off 100 balls and contained nine fours and one six. Some of his cover driving was delightful.

    Shakib joins Mushfiqur at the crease. Bangladesh's two best batsmen? I'd say so. Davey, who sends down two consecutive wides, now has 11 wickets in this World Cup. Only Tim Southee (13) has got more.

  43. Post update

    Garry MacDonald

    Former Canterbury spinner and coach

    "Scotland will now think they have a chance in this game. There have been so many twists and turns in this World Cup when things appear to be going well for one team or the other."

  44. WICKET

    Tamim lbw b Davey 95 (Ban 201-3)

    Tamim Iqbal

    He's gone! It's pitched inside leg-stump and would have hit middle a couple of inches below the bails. Massive wicket for Scotland.

  45. Review

    Tamim Iqbal brings up the 200 with two off Josh Davey and edges ever closer to that hundred but then is trapped leg before and Scotland think they have him.

  46. Post update

    Garry MacDonald

    Former Canterbury spinner and coach

    "It looks like Bangladesh have things under control. But this World Cup has had a number of twists and turns. You only have two take a couple of wickets and the whole thing can change all of a sudden. If Scotland can break through we may have another twist."

  47. Ban 199-2 (target 319)

    Mushfiqur is blazing his way through the gears now, creaming Majid Haq through the covers for four before helping a single off his hips. These two have now put on 50 in double-quick time. Don't be surprised if they take the powerplay early. The delicate side of Tamim's game again comes to the fore when he waits for a slow delivery and just helps it to third man for three.

  48. Scorecard update

    Bangladesh 191-2 from 30 overs (target 319)

    Batsmen: Tamim 90, Mushfiqur 31

    Fall of wickets: 5-1 (Sarker 2), 144-2 (Mahmudullah 62)

    Bowling figures: Wardlaw 6-0-44-1, Davey 5-0-31-1, Evans 6-1-38-0, Machan 5-0-34-0, Haq 6-0-26-0, Berrington 2-0-18-0

    Test Match Special commentary

  49. Ban 191-2 (Tamim 90, Mushfiqur 31)

    There's an eclectic mix of music blaring out over the ground's PA system. I think I've heard Gangnam Style and a remix of I will Survive in the last five minutes. The crowd is fairly muted as they watch Bangladesh chip away at this target like old pros - ones here, two there and the odd six, Mushfiqur slapping a maximum over cow corner. Matt Machan's latest over goes for 10. I suspect he won't be invited back.

  50. How's stat?

    Andrew Samson

    BBC Test Match Special statistician

    Bangladesh have successfully chased 300 twice in ODIs: against Zimbabwe in 2009 and New Zealand in 2013.

    If they win it will be the second highest successful run chase in a World Cup game behind Ireland's 329-7 v England at Bangalore in 2011.

  51. Ban 181-2 (target 319)

    Bangladesh batsman Mushfiqur Rahim

    Mushfiqur looks like he's been batting all day. He's taken no time to get himself in, tickling two down to fine leg and then pulling another couple through mid-wicket when Ali Evans drops short.

  52. Join the debate at #bbccricket

    Henry Clarson: Scotland needed that wicket. Bowlers weren't looking like favourites to stop Bangladesh reaching 319. Going to the wire again?

  53. Ban 176-2 (Tamim 88, Mushfiqur 18)

    Scotland again turn to part-time offie Matt Machan and a loosener is pounced upon by Mushfiqur who flays a cover drive to the boundary. He does the same to Tamim, but smart fielding on the boundary limits the left-hander to two.

    Tamim then goes to ground with cramp and needs attention from the physio. He's soon fine to continue, after thanking the Scots for letting him receive treatment. A single moves Tamim to the highest score by a Bangladeshi in the World Cup (88).

  54. Post update

    BBC Sport in Nelson

    Bangladesh fans show their support

    "Bangladesh fans start a conga line around the banks of Saxton Oval. It may be 10 past five but the sun is still shining and a few more people have seemed to have ventured to the ground after work.

    "Most of the locals are firmly on Scotland's side but they're struggling to be heard amidst the Bangladeshi fans. It tough going all round for anyone on the side of Scots."

  55. Ban 168-2 (target 319)

    Alasdair Evans bounds in for a new spell and Tamim makes up for missing out on a cover drive by nicking a controlled single down to third man. Bangladesh are finding the ones and twos in their sleep, and it's four from the over.

  56. Ban 164-2 (Tamim 83, Mushfiqur 11)

    Mushfiqur is my favourite Bangladesh player. He's short, gutsy and his batting is effortlessly classy. Natural ability. When Iain Wardlaw bowls one short and wide, the little fella jumps up and slaps four through point. He's fitted seamlessly into the hole left by Mahmudullah's dismissal.

  57. Ban 155-2 (target 319)

    Tamim shows he's got poise to go with his power as he dabs Haq for four down to third man. He's eyeing up a century now, and it's five from the over.

  58. The next man in...

    Shakib Al Hasan graphic
  59. Ban 150-2 (Tamim 74, Mushfiqur 6)

    It's been confirmed that Anamul Haque, who suffered a shoulder injury while fielding, will not bat for Bangladesh today. That means Bangladesh are effectively three down now. The new batsman Mushfiqur gets off the mark by hitting a knee-high full toss to the boundary.

  60. Post update

    Vic Marks

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "This Scotland team is well prepared but I don't think they could have planned for that! That was just what they needed. Now if they can put a bit more pressure on the batsmen, they'll feel much happier."

  61. WICKET

    Mahmudullah b Wardlaw 62 (Ban 144-2)

    Mahmudullah

    Scotland catch a lucky break - Iain Wardlaw follows Mahmudullah down the leg side and the ball hits the batsman on the toe before deflecting onto the stumps. The batsman is out and looks to have injured his foot. Double whammy.

  62. Ban 140-1 (target 319)

    Short in stature but with broad, powerful shoulders, Tamim has a real presence at the crease. He drives Majid Haq for a single, with the bowler later knocking over the stumps in delivery and being penalised with a no-ball. The umpire is quick to clarify that it's not a free hit as the batsman asks for clarification. You don't want to get confused on that rule.

    This partnership is now worth 135 runs, meaning it's the highest for Bangladesh in the World Cup. Tamim is still there despite Richie Berrington's fine direct hit at the end of the over. He got back just in time.

  63. Ban 133-1 (Tamim 71, Mahmudullah 55)

    Tamim Iqbal hits one of the most attractive cover drives in world cricket. He times it to perfection and the ball races away to the fence, bisecting the fielders as it goes. Again, Richie Berrington is the unfortunate bowling victim.

  64. Ban 126-1 (target 319)

    Mahmudullah has never scored an ODI century, although he has reached three figures in a Test match against New Zealand so he does have some class about him. The ball continues to be knocked into gaps - three more knocked from the target.

  65. 50 for Mahmudullah

    Ban 123-1

    Mahmudullah bats

    Richie Berrington, who took a career-best 4-40 against Afghanistan last time out, is summoned by his skipper but his medium pace is launched into by Tamim who again drives to the cover boundary. Mahmudullah then reaches his 12th ODI half-century with four courtesy of Majid Haq's mis-field at third man. The right-hander brings up the landmark in 50 balls.

  66. Ban 112-1 (Tamim 58, Mahmudullah 47)

    Drinks finish and it is Majid Haq to continue. Little of note happens as the batsmen ease the ball around for a couple of unrushed singles. The lull before the storm...

  67. Post update

    Kalika Mehta

    BBC Sport in Nelson

    "There's plenty to cheer about for the Bangladeshi fans as the boundaries flow and their side take control.

    "The Scotland flags are still flying in the wind but the cries of 'Bangladesh, Bangladesh' and the drums, whistles and cheers that are growing ever louder. Some of the Scottish faithful are losing a bit of their hope of witnessing a first ever Scotland World Cup victory."

  68. Ban 107-1 (target 319)

    Bangladesh are on easy street. They knock the innocuous slow bowling of Matt Machan into the gaps as Scotland sit in and wait for something to happen. The 100 partnership is now up, and it arrives in the same number of balls. Seven from the over, and we'll have drinks.

  69. Post update

    Former Bangladesh cricketer Athar Ali Khan on TMS: "Tamim Iqbal has looked really good. Bangladesh needed someone at the top of the order to make a score. He's got in and now needs to carry on and get a big score. These two have eased the nerves in the dressing room with this partnership."

  70. 50 for Tamim (off 53 balls)

    Ban 100-1

    Attacking intent from Mahmudullah who comes at the bowling of Majid Haq but only gets a single. Tamim also looks keen to use his feet as he moves about in his crease and he advances to his 28th ODI half-century with one into the leg side.

  71. Ban 97-1 (target 319)

    Matt Machan is wearing expensive-looking white shades while sending down his part-time spinners. Already we're into milking time as the Bangladeshis chip away at their target. Six more added to the Tigers' total.

  74. Ban 91-1 (target 319)

    Local children are partaking in some fun-looking dry sledging on the brown-coloured mounds which make up much of the viewing area at this picturesque ground. They, like Bangladesh out in the middle, are picking up some decent pace.

    Majid Haq is brought into the Scotland attack and his slow offies almost bring about a run-out as the batsmen again get mixed up between the wickets. Three from the over.

  75. Ban 88-1 (Tamim 44, Mahmudullah 38)

    Scotland take the pace off the ball and give part-time offie Matt Machan a chuck. With just eight ODI wickets to his name, he's a surprise pick for the 14th over but Scotland need to pluck a dismissal from somewhere. Three from a tidy over.

  76. Ban 85-1 (target 319)

    Mahmudullah stands like Graham Gooch at the crease - bat raised and ready to knock the ball wherever he chooses. A single puts Tamim on strike, and the little left-hander creams another boundary through the covers. The ball kisses the turf on its way to the boundary. Gorgeous shot.

    DUCC: Still awake in Dundee, waiting to see the flurry of Bangladeshi wickets fall so I can get to bed... university in 5 hours!

  78. Ban 78-1 (Tamim 36, Mahmudullah 36)

    Who has the best shirt at this tournament? I think the Scots have a case with their dark blue effort and its tartan arms. Mahmudullah takes a leaf out of Tamim's book and hooks a short ball for six. Alasdair Evans chunters back to his mark. His mood is not helped by a pull shot for four more. Bangladesh motoring.

  79. Ban 65-1 (target 319)

    Scotland need a breakthrough here. Their pace bowlers have been sized up now - perhaps it's time for some spin? As I type that, Josh Davey beats Tamim's outside edge with a sharp delivery and the batsman responds by nodding his head. Three from the over.

  80. Post update

    Garry MacDonald

    Former Canterbury spinner and coach

    Bangladesh batsman Tamim Iqbal

    "It's just a little bit easy for Bangladesh. They are not being put under enough pressure and are playing low-risk shots because of the deliveries they are receiving. There are too many let-off balls."

  81. Ban 62-1 (Tamim 33, Mahmudullah 24)

    Paul Collingwood is Scotland's assistant coach, and I'd be surprised if he doesn't take fielding drills. His handiwork almost pays off when Calum MacLeod goes close to effecting a run-out as the two batsmen get involved in something of a mix-up. A throw from cover is inches away from lighting up those bails. Evans is coming round the wicket to the left-handed Tamim, who unfurls another glorious cover drive to score four more.

  82. Ban 57-1 (target 319)

    Tamim gives you a chance. Twice now he has hit the ball in the air on the off side and gotten away with it. There's plenty to admire too, as he gets on the front foot and drives Josh Davey to the cover boundary. Another big shot brings two over the bowler's head.

  83. Ban 49-1 (Tamim 21, Mahmudullah 23)

    I like Alasdair Evans - he's a tall, grumpy fast bowler. All fast bowlers should be moody, shouldn't they? Getting in close to the wicket, he grunts at the point of delivery and the shape he is getting into the right-handed Mahmudullah is worrying the batsman who decides to charge the bowler. He gets no joy though and it's a maiden over.

    "I think the Scottish attack has been very disappointing. They've bowled two lengths and have got their line wrong. They need to sort those out very quickly. This is a par score, although Bangladesh have a batsman down, but the Scotland boys have to tighten up and ask the batsmen some questions. At the moment they are bowling too many loose balls."

  85. Ban 49-1 (target 319)

    Iain Wardlaw plays his county cricket at Yorkshire, which automatically means he's a good un'. And that's coming from a Lancashire fan. The white rose can do no wrong at the moment, can they? He's generating more pace than any other bowler in this match and is unlucky that a bouncer is hooked over the head of the boundary fielder for six. That was out at a bigger ground.

  87. Ban 40-1 (Tamim 15, Mahmudullah 20)

    There's a gentleman dressed as Horatio Nelson in the crowd, but I'm more intrigued by the abundance of bouncy castles on the outskirts of the ground. They look good fun.

    Alasdair Evans isn't smiling as his first delivery is cracked through the covers by Mahmudullah who looks in good nick. Showing his all-round ability, the right-hander then clips another boundary through the leg side.

  88. Ban 29-1 (target 319)

    According to my very quick internet search, Scotland's population of 5.3 million is dwarfed by the 157 million people in Bangladesh. It's 11 v 11 here though and the Scots are favourites by my reckoning. Mahmudullah guides Wardlaw for four down to third man to chip away at that mammoth target.

  89. Ban 24-1 (Tamim 15, Mahmudullah 3)

    It's good to know there's a few of you following this game in the small hours. I don't know how true it is, but I am reliably informed that Scotland is home to more cricket clubs than rugby clubs? Josh Davey did pick up a wicket with a leg-side strangle, but he's straying too much down the on-side now and is flicked for four down to fine leg by the left-handed Tamim. Ten from the over.

  90. Ban 14-1 (target 319)

    Bangladesh need runs from these two - they can't rely solely on their two top-class batsmen Shakib and Mushfiqur. Tamim is capable and he moves to 4,000 career ODI runs with two pulls to the leg-side boundary. He's only the second Bangladesh player to reach that landmark.

  92. Ban 6-1 (target 319)

    With Anamul Haque unlikely to bat because of a shoulder injury, Bangladesh are effectively two down. Mahmudullah, with more than 2,000 ODI runs to his name, is tasked with getting this Bangladesh chase up and running at the elevated position of number three.

    Just the job for the Scots as stand-in opener Soumya Sarkar chases one down leg and gets a feather to wicketkeeper Matthew Cross. An important early breakthrough.

  95. Ban 3-0 (target 319)

    Tall right-arm quick Iain Wardlaw begins with a steepling short ball. There's real venom in that ball from the snarling fast bowler. Tamim is soon off the mark with two as Bangladesh start with three from the first over.

    Test Match Special commentary

  107. Sco 318-7

    Scotland walk off having hit 318-8, therefore setting Bangladesh 319 to win. Fantastic stuff by the boys in dark blue, who have posted the second highest total by an associate nation in the World Cup.

  108. WICKET

    Haq c Sarkar b Shakib 1 (Sco 315-8)

    Majid Haq walks out to bat without a helmet or cap. The left-hander looks like he's out for a Sunday afternoon hit, not taking part in a World Cup match. He means business though and smears Shakib into the leg side only to pick out Sarkar who takes a fine catch diving forward at mid-wicket.

  109. WICKET

    Cross c Sabbir b Taskin 20 (Sco 312-7)

    Matthew Cross goes in pursuit of quick runs at the tail-end of the innings but succeeds only in cracking the ball to point. A decent 14-ball cameo nonetheless.

  110. WICKET

    Berrington c Mushfiqur b Taskin 26 (Sco 308-6)

    Richie Berrington of Scotland walks off

    One delivery after being hit on the hand at the non-striker's end, Richie Berrington is out. He misjudges a slower ball from Taskin and sends a catch high into the air behind the stumps and wicketkeeper Mushfiqur takes a good catch.

  111. Post update

    Vic Marks

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "Scotland would miss Berrington if he can't bowl because he operates as a fifth/sixth bowler. It was hit incredibly hard - that is cricket's equivalent of friendly fire. He doesn't want to go off."

  112. Ouch - Sco 308-5 (run-rate 6.37)

    Richie Berrington is in a world of pain as he gets in the way of Matthew Cross's straight drive and his hand cops full punishment. The physio is on... he could have broken something there. The bat was knocked from his hands. It could have been worse for Scotland if it was the other way round, with Cross due to take the wicketkeeping gloves. It probably costs his side four runs too. Berrington gets some strapping on it and will continue.

  113. Sco 304-5 (Berrington 26, Cross 13)

    It's raining sixes now - Scotland motor past 300 when Matthew Cross sweeps Shakib for a maximum over square leg. Fetch that.

  114. Sco 296-5 (run-rate: 6.29)

    Richie Berrington hits a long ball. This time he gives himself space and smears Nasir over extra cover for another maximum... 300 is a formality now. Another four through the off side brings cheers from the smattering of Scottish supporters. Scotland can do no wrong.

    I wondered how long the 'Coetzer for England' tweets would take to come in, Matthew. Remember Gavin Hamilton?! One Test, two ducks, no wickets. I do know what you're saying though. It was a magnificent knock.

    Richie Berrington takes up the baton from Coetzer as he clears his front leg and creams leg-spinner Sabbir over cow corner for six. That's the seventh sixth of the innings. Thirteen from the over.

  119. WICKET

    Coetzer c Sarkar b Nasir 156 (Sco 269-5)

    Kyle Coetzer walks off

    All good things have to come to an end, and Kyle Coetzer's historic knock ends when he mis-times a big shot into the leg side and the ball sails into the air before Sarkar takes a good catch. Pats on the backs all round once the right-hander reaches the team dug-out.

  120. Sco 266-4 (run-rate: 6.05)

    Imagine if Scotland and Ireland got Test status? It'd be brilliant. Kyle Coetzer scored 71 against England earlier in the tournament, and now 150 against Bangladesh. He looks capable of making the step up. He's helped the run-rate move above six an over now.

  123. 150 for Coetzer

    Sco 259-4

    A single into the off side, and Kyle Coetzer now has 150 from 129 balls. What a knock... he's the first associate player to do so at the World Cup. Buy that boy a pint.

  124. Sco 258-4

    Richie Berrington is the new man to the crease, but Kyle Coetzer keeps the strike with a single.

    "That's a good 39 because they have put on a lot and it was an important partnership. Mommsen was slow to start but gave the strike to Coetzer, his potential match winner. The job isn't done - there is scope for a big score with just over seven overs left."

  126. WICKET

    Mommsen c Sarkar b Nasir 39 (Sco 257-4)

    The catch is taken

    The skipper falls on his sword, trying to edge his side up to 300. He tries to loft spinner Nasir over the leg-side fence but the ball goes too high and not far enough and Sarkar takes an unconvincing catch in the deep.

  127. Sco 250-3 (Coetzer 141, Mommsen 39)

    I've not been impressed with Bangladesh skipper Mortaza today. He's bowled a lot of boundary balls and has been down on pace. Not a good combination on this track.

    He's unlucky to be edged for four through third man, though, by Kyle Coetzer. A full toss gets the treatment from the centurion and is whacked down the ground for four. Another maximum sails over the sightscreen as Coetzer begins to eye up 150. A big over that.

  128. Post update

    Vic Marks

    Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

    "This has been a superbly judged innings from Coetzer. He has played in quite a measured way but has hit some firm boundaries and from this position Scotland will be disappointed if they don't get to 300 plus. I'm not necessarily saying that will be enough though."

  129. Sco 235-3 (run-rate 5.73)

    Nasir Hossain is coming on to bowl. No, not that one! The Bangladesh version. His floaty off-spinners are difficult for the batsmen to hit. Just five from the over.

  131. Sco 230-3 (Coetzer 124, Mommsen 36)

    Bad news for Anamul Haque then. I'm beginning to think this might be Scotland's day. Perhaps they'll be dancing on the streets of Dundee at 5am?

    Kyle Coetzer's cover drive for four brings up their first ever World Cup 100 partnership, and all at more than a run a ball, and takes Scotland past their highest total in ODIs against a Test-playing nation. The right-hander then belts Rubel down the ground for four. Coetzer is motoring now, whacking the fast bowler over long-off for six Adam Gilchrist-style. Fifty runs coming from the powerplay.

  132. Haque injury update

    News is just reaching us that Bangladesh opener Anamul Haque dislocated a joint in his shoulder in his fall while fielding earlier on and has gone to hospital. He is rated as very unlikely to bat.

  133. Sco 212-3 (run-rate: 5.44)

    Shakib is a decent bowler to have in the powerplay. He's varying his pace and bowling flat - and that limits Scotland to six singles. The magical 300 remains in reach though.

  134. Sco 206-3

    Kyle Coetzer looked pretty chuffed with that century - taking off his helmet and offering a sheepish grin. Well played, sir.

  135. 100 for Kyle Coetzer

    Sco 204-3

    Century Up

    Kyle Coetzer of Scotland

    Andy Murray winning Wimbledon, that glorious grand slam by the rugby lads in 1990 and now Kyle Coetzer's hundred - the first by a Scot in the Cricket World Cup. All amazing moments in Scottish sport.

    OK, I've over-egged the third one a little but the significance is fairly monumental for this associate nation. Coetzer brings up the landmark in style by whacking fast bowler Rubel back over his head for six. Great effort.

  136. Sco 198-3 (run-rate: 5.35)

    Shakib is back for a third spell and he keeps Scotland in check with some left-arm darts. Just four from the over.

  137. Sco 194-3 (Coetzer 94 off 94)

    The Bangladesh skipper Mortaza shoulders the burden of bowling first in the powerplay and he sends down a no-ball to his opposite number Preston Mommsen, who clouts six over cow corner. A free hit follows and Mommsen can't capitalise as he squirts a single into the off side. Replays show that wasn't a no-ball, so perhaps justice was done that the free hit didn't sail over the rope. Coetzer edges ever closer to a ton with four over long-off. Looking good.

  138. Powerplay

    Here we go then. Let's have the batting powerplay.

  139. Sco 180-3 (run-rate: 5.14)

    The two Scottish batsmen meet in the middle and debate whether to take the powerplay one over early. They decide not to after off-spinner Nasir is brought into the attack for the first time today. They want to have a look first. Just two singles from a tidy and rapid over.

  140. Post update

    Former Bangladesh cricketer Athar Ali Khan on TMS: "Scotland should pick up 300 runs here. It's good for batting and they have played sensible cricket while I like the way Coetzer is playing."

  141. Sco 178-3 (Coetzer 88, Mommsen 22)

    Scotland batsman Kyle Coetzer (top) is run into by Bangladesh bowler Sabbir Rahman

    Leg-spinner Sabbir is into his fifth over now but, despite taking his maiden ODI wicket, he doesn't appear to be Test standard. Certainly on this pitch, at least. Scotland have milked him easily. Three singles.

  142. Sco 175-3 (run-rate: 5.30)

    Taskin has a peculiar action. He bounds in like Bambi and has the ball in his right arm which is far in advance of the rest of his body. Raw.

    He's been punished whenever he has dropped short today and Kyle Coetzer whacks him to the cover boundary. He then delivers a slower ball which is so gentle, the batsman plays three shots before dabbing a single to backward point.

  143. Coetzer record - Sco 168-3 (Coetzer 80, Mommsen 20)

    Kyle Coetzer brings up the highest score by a Scotland batsman in a World Cup with four to backward square. Not a bad milestone to have against your name. Can he become the first Scot to reach three figures? That boundary also brought up the 50 partnership. Five from the over.

    Garry MacDonald

    Former Canterbury spinner and coach

    "Scotland are going along nicely. Coetzer needs to go deep into this innings to set up the final onslaught. Bangladesh have done a pretty good job. Their quicks bowled a bit short but their fielding has been outstanding. It's a pretty even contest."

  145. Haque injury blow - Sco 163-3 (run-rate: 5.26)

    The Bangladesh spinners have got very little turn from this pitch. England will be hoping the Adelaide strip is similar, although I doubt it. The runs are flowing too easily here as Scotland begin to set themselves up for an assault on the magical 300-mark. Mommsen pulls a long hop round the corner for four. Another boundary is avoided by Anamul Haque's boundary dive... but the opening batsman looks to have dislocated his shoulder in doing so. Ouch.

    Kyle Coetzer has been cautious on the drive, but he doesn't miss out when leggie Sabbir tosses one up. Four runs. The runs continue to come through the off side and five singles end a decent over. Nine from it.

  153. Sco 127-3 (Coetzer 55, Mommsen 4)

    Bangladesh continue to look for wickets, with a slip in pace to quick bowler Rubel. There's a couple of plays and misses by the bearded Preston Mommsen who is happy to rotate the strike with a single to short cover. Two from the over - when will the foot be applied to the gas?

    That wicket brings the skipper, Preston Mommsen, to the crease. An ODI best of 139 not out underlines his value to the team. He's off the mark with a single to third man.

    Kyle Coetzer ends the over by bringing up his seventh ODI half-century off 54 balls with four down to third man, courtesy of Taskin's horrible fielding mistake on the boundary. Good knock - now he must go big.

    "That's another opportunity missed. It was a quicker ball, it didn't spin but there was lapse of concentration.

Bangladesh needed something and turned to their leg-spinner."

    Sabbir celebrates

    Dear, oh dear! Remember in the 21st over that I said Matt Machan's heavy bottom hand might see him pop up a catch? I was right... the stocky left-hander gets a leading edge straight to leg-spinner Sabbir who takes a simple caught and bowled for his first ODI wicket. A partnership worth 78 runs comes to an end.

  160. Sco 110-2 (Coetzer 47, Machan 30)

    Scotland's players have been particularly strong on the pull today, and Kyle Coetzer finds the boundary again when Mortaza digs one in. Sitting on the back foot, he then helps himself to a single through the covers. Machan is beginning to drop and run now - testing the close fielders' pick up and throw skills.

    Matt Machan

    "Machan, in a very flattering way, reminds me a bit of Marcus Trescothick. There's nothing too elaborate but he's powerful, pulls the ball well and cuts it very hard. It's not the perfect comparison but there's the odd echo."

  162. Sco 103-2 (Shakib 6-0-22-0)

    Scotland bring up their 100, and their second 50 has come at almost a run a ball. Decent effort. In his delivery stride, Shakib almost contorts his hips before sending the ball down. It's a unique action, but one which works - as 368 international wickets underlines. The slow left-armer is knocked into the gaps for four singles.

  163. Sco 99-2 (run-rate: 4.71)

    Mashrafe Mortaza returns for a bowl, and television cameras notice the skipper is wearing protective supports on both knees. The 31-year-old has struggled with a catalogue of injuries in recent years, but he's bounding in to give everything here.

    Matt Machan is worrying me slightly - his heavy bottom hand has seen him hit the ball in the air a couple of times. On this slow deck, he looks like he might pop one up to the close catchers. He does play a nice push through the covers though and gets two. Should have been three.

  164. Six - Sco 94-2 (Coetzer 39, Machan 23)

    Between overs, 'All about the Bass' is played out over the big speakers encircling the ground. It's a bit of a foot tapper that one. No doubt Katy Perry fan Geoffrey Boycott likes it and has it on cassette.

    Back to the cricket, Kyle Coetzer heaves Shakib over mid-wicket for a maximum. That rouses the bagpipe players. Another lofted shot into the leg side evades the fielders and runs for four. Coetzer is lucky to split the two fielders in that area.

    "Scotland need to convert their starts. Coetzer has their highest score with 71 against England, and there are a couple of 50s but mostly scores of 20s and 30s and that doesn't cut the mustard. They must not panic but ensure they keep the momentum going.

    Kyle Coetzer, who was born in Aberdeen, averages almost 40 in ODI cricket and he is looking to be Scotland's anchor in this innings. He gets four through third man off Rubel Hossain, then works a single into the leg side. Machan plays a delicate cut to third man for one of his own.

    Controversial, Ashish.

  168. Sco 77-2 (Coetzer 24, Machan 21)

    Slow left-armer Shakib, who opened the bowling today, returns to the attack. He's coming round the wicket to the right-handed Kyle Coetzer but goes over the wicket to leftie Matt Machan. He's also bowling much flatter than the tempters he was throwing up early on. Bangladesh are fielding well and a fine stop in the covers stops Machan finding the boundary. One from the over.

    Cricket Scotland interim executive chairman Keith Oliver on Test Match Special: "Coetzer has probably been our most consistent performer. He has the ability to make a big score here, as does Machan. This is a vital partnership."

  170. Sco 76-2 (run-rate: 4.47)

    Do you reckon we could put the best players from the associates and make up a team to beat the big boys? That's your task for the evening. I think Matt Machan would have a shout of being included. First name on the team-sheet? I'd have to go for Afghanistan's Hamid Hassan. If only for the bandana.

    This partnership is now worth 38, at almost a run a ball. Don't give it away now, Scotland. Just a single from the over, and it's time for drinks.

    It's striking how Scotland have scored limited runs through the cover region. The minute I type that, however, Rubel Hossain serves up a pie and Matt Machan tucks in. Four runs.

    "A big cheer goes up as umpire Bruce Oxenford, who turned 55 today, shows he's still got some quick movement in him and dives brilliantly to his left to avoid being clobbered by the ball after Coetzer punishes a short Mahmudullah delivery.

    "The sound of bagpipes start up every so often and the DJ tries to rouse the crowd by calling on the Scotland fans to raise their voice. They duly oblige but are soon drowned out by the Bangladeshi fans, who are enjoying their team's efforts in the sun."

  174. Sco 68-2 (run-rate: 4.53)

    Mahmudullah doesn't appear to be causing too many problems for these two 'set' Scotland batsmen. He is beginning to be milked into the gaps as four singles come from the over.

  176. Sco 64-2 (Coetzer 19, Machan 13)

    I love that from Garry MacDonald, the fact some children might be wagging school to watch the cricket. Not that we condone such behaviour! We need to encourage more children to go to the cricket here in the UK - I remember the thrill I used to get when the PE teacher took us on a day trip to Old Trafford. Much better than double maths.

    Back to the middle, Matt Machan looks in good touch - as he so often does - and he pulls Taskin to the boundary when the fast bowler drops short. There is no margin for error on this slow wicket. Coetzer also gets four when he clips one to the fine-leg boundary.

  177. Sco 53-2 (Coetzer 14 off 22)

    Mahmudullah has 68 wickets in 112 ODIs, so he's no stranger to this standard of cricket. He's trying to keep the chain on Scotland's top order but the shackles are broken when he drops shot and Kyle Coetzer swivels to swat a boundary to square leg. In fact, the ball almost sconned the umpire Bruce Oxenford there. Some nifty footwork avoids disaster.

  179. Sco 46-2 (run-rate: 3.83)

    I've just seen Scotland assistant coach Paul Collingwood for the first time. Like last week, he's gone for the sleeveless vest. And like last week, he's eating again. Looks like a mid-morning wrap for the Durham captain. Taskin continues to look dangerous and appeals for a leg-before against Machan, but it looked to be sliding down leg. Just a single from the over.

  181. Sco 45-2 (Coetzer 7, Machan 7)

    A Scotland player is sat in the dug-out with binoculars. It's hardly a big ground, but there's plenty of character and charm about it with its grassy viewing banks.

    Now Bangladesh bring on off-spinner Mahmudullah who goes round the wicket to the thick-set left-hander Matt Machan. The Sussex man responds in style - flicking a six over long-on.

    "He will be extremely disappointed with that. The ball was short and wide and Gardiner could have hit it anywhere. But the ball stuck in the wicket and didn't come on as fast as he thought."

    Gardiner c Sarkar b Taskin 19 (Sco 38-2)

    Taskin Ahmed

    Scotland just don't help themselves. After playing with restraint and their heads in the first 10 overs, they sully their solid start with another poor shot. This time the ball is high and wide outside off stump and Hamish Gardiner just guides it into Sarkar's hands in the covers. That was a case of go hard or go home. Gardiner has gone home (to the dressing room).

  186. Sco 37-1 (Bangladesh won the toss)

    The skiddy, athletic Rubel Hossain is new to the attack as Bangladesh rotate their bowlers. They might have expected to have more than one wicket to their name by now. Gardiner continues to look good on the pull as he clouts another four through mid-wicket. The Tigers continue to be pro-active in the field and have switched the man on the drive to short gully. A little tickle to fine leg brings about four more for Gardiner. Nice, solid start.

    "In the last couple of games here the ball has stuck in the pitch. It's not easy to score in the first dozen overs and MacLeod played the ball too early in his dismissal because of that. It will get flatter and easier to score as the day goes on."

  188. Sco 29-1 (Coetzer 6, Gardiner 11)

    The Shakib experiment is ditched and right-arm quick Taskin Ahmed is given a chuck. Tall and slender - the 19-year-old has not fully developed - he's getting decent pace from a fairly economical run-up. Bangladesh continue to put a catcher at short cover to try and place doubt into the minds of the batsmen. Four from the over.

    What's the Scotland equivalent of the Barmy Army? The Tartan Army? Anyway, they are being outnumbered by the Bangladeshis in the crowd. Mortaza continues to drop short every now and again and Gardiner cashes in by pulling him to the mid-wicket boundary.

    "A pocket of Scottish kids were up cheering as MacLeod produced two beautiful off drives but his dismissal has roused the cheers and whistles from the strong number of Bangladesh fans on the banks of Saxton Oval.

    "Today was almost certainly meant to be a rain filled day but it has turned into a beautiful, if not a tad overcast, morning. It should provide the opportunity for a good game."

  192. Sco 21-1 (run-rate: 3.50)

    Shakib has 184 ODI wickets, but he's bowling tempters here as he gives the ball plenty of air. The Scottish batsmen are staying back in their crease and harnessing their natural urge to take the slow left-armer on. What would Christopher Gayle do? He'd be on 60 by now. There is a slip and a leg slip in place, adding to the pressure.

  193. Sco 20-1 (Coetzer 4, Gardiner 5)

    The pitch looks a belter. It's being used for the third time in this tournament but it's fairly slow and gives the batsmen time to get after the fast bowling. It's like tennis-ball bounce from Mortza who is worked round the corner for two by Coetzer. With a man on the drive, the Scottish batsmen should be wary of messing about outside off stump though.

  194. Sco 17-1 (Shakib 2-0-5-0)

    I can't imagine the Scottish openers are used to facing spin first up. The pitches in Aberdeen don't tend to be slow, low dust-bowls.

    Slow left-armer Shakib, who is regarded as one of Bangladesh's few Test-quality players, is coming round the wicket and giving the ball plenty of air as he tries to tempt the Scottish top order into doing something silly. Sometimes that extra thinking time can be dangerous - like those instinctive strikers who always seem to miss when given too much time to dwell on a chance. Anyway, Scotland survive for now and it's three from the over.

  195. Sco 14-1 (Coetzer 2, Gardiner 1)

    That wicket seems to have given seamer Mortaza an extra yard of pace - he's bounding into the delivery crease now. A skiddy bowler, there is little room for error and when he does stray onto the pads of new batsman Hamish Gardiner he is worked for a single.

    "For the first time MacLeod was timing the ball well but it took the leading edge and ballooned very gently to the fielder. After a tantalising start he's gone, which is disappointing for him because you sense there are a lot of runs out there and Scotland will need a good total."

  197. WICKET

    MacLeod c Mahmudullah b Mortaza 11 (Sco 13-1)

    Mashrafe Mortaza

    Calum MacLeod looked in good touch, but it doesn't last long as Bangladesh strike early - the batsman being too early on his shot and getting a leading edge to cover. Not the start the associates were after.

  198. Sco 11-0 (Coetzer 2, MacLeod 9)

    This is interesting. Not too many teams have opened the bowling with a spinner in this tournament. New Zealand used to do it with Dipak Patel in 1992, and Bangladesh follow suit with slow left-armer Shakib here in Nelson. The Tigers have got a man under the helmet and a slip fielder in wait for any chances which may come their way. Two singles from the over.
