ADELAIDE: Bangladesh knocked England out of the World Cup with a sensational 15-run Pool A victory at the Adelaide Oval on Monday to make the quarter-finals.
Rubel Hossain was Bangladesh’s star at the finish, clean bowling Stuart Broad and last man James Anderson to seal victory for the Tigers as England finished on 260 all out chasing a target of 276.
Earlier, Bangladesh — who had been eight for two — made 275 for seven after being sent into bat, with Mohammad Mamudullah (103) compiling the country’s first individual World Cup hundred and Mushfiqur Rahim making 89.
Defeat meant England — whose only win at the tournament so far has been against non-Test Scotland — couldn’t claim a quarter-final place but Bangladesh’s victory saw them into the last eight along with Sri Lanka.
New Zealand and Australia complete the qualifying picture from Pool A for the quarter-finals.
