Bangladesh Sends England Home

Bangladesh is through to the quarter-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup after knocking out England thanks to a 15 run win at the Adelaide Oval on Monday.  The English won the toss and elected to bowl first.  The Bangladeshis finished their 50 overs on 275/7.

The Bengal Tigers started slowly, losing two wickets for less than 10 runs.  The first wicket to fall was Imrul Kayes followed by Tamim Iqbal.  Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah shared a partnership of 63 runs as Mahmudullah had the highest score of 103 until his journey ended when he was run out by Chris Woakes.

James Anderson and Chris Jordan each collected two wickets.  Moeen Ali and Stuart Broad each took one wicket before the chase began.  Rubel Hossain took 4/53 and Taskin Ahmed and Mashrafe Mortaza each bagged a pair of wickets to destroy the poms.

England lacked in their chase and as a result they only managed 260 runs in 48.3 overs.  England’s time at the ICC Cricket World Cup has run out while the Tigers join New Zealand, Australia and Sri Lanka in the knockout stages.
