Over recent years, Bangladesh have burst onto the one-day scene with a mixture of cunning awareness and breath-taking ability and now boast some of the most complete one-day players in the world. Cricket World Cup 2019 was no different.
Despite finishing the group in eighth, Bangladesh enjoyed wins over South Africa, Afghanistan and an amazing run chase over West Indies where they chased 322 – the highest successful run chase of the tournament.
Shakib Al Hasan broke records as he became the first ever cricketer in World Cup history to score 600 runs and take 10 wickets. He also surpassed Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most runs scored in the group stage of a World Cup (606).
