Bangladesh win by two wickets Take your eyes off England at your peril. They've dished up another World Cup classic but it's Bangladesh who are celebrating. Incredible result under the most intense pressure, fantastic scenes in Chittagong! At one stage they were 169 for 8, all but out of their own tournament before Shafiul suddenly turned the game on its head by swatting boundaries off Swann in the 42nd over and the belief came flowing back. All of this after being steamrolled for 58 the game before. Shakib is in tears, that's how much was at stake.

Even the groundstaff are doing a lap of honour, might be quite the party in Chittagong tonight. Fair to say England were poor this evening, again. 23 wides tells its own story but in the end it was Shafiul's blazing belief alongside Mahmudullah's calmness that took Bangladesh over the line.

Andrew Miller, who lest we forget is the father of Bangladesh cricket (according to some), will have hastily rewritten bulletin ready soon and when he does it will be well worth reading. Elsewhere there is a gallery that has the best pictures of the day. Our YouTube channel will soon have interviews and what-not so keep your eye on that.

Imrul Kayes is named man of the match. Held the top order together with a half-century before almost losing the match with the run out. His catch to dismiss Eoin Morgan, though, might just have proved the difference.

Group B is all complex nest of calculations and this result has blown it open again. Fantastic game again, been a pleasure and from me, Sahil Dutta, and Andrews McGlashan and Miller, that will be all.

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, FOUR runs, Mahmudullah has done it! Bangladesh have done it! What an a partnership! Brilliant victory is sealed by Mahmudullah punching a drive through the covers. The Bangladesh players come streaming onto the field, Mahmudullah stands arms aloft and the World Cup party is back on!

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, Mahmudullah skips up the track here and Bresnan responds by banging it in short. Glanced to short midwicket and plenty of nervous faces in the crowds

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, ooh, excellent delivery. Full and straight, heading for off stump until the wide blade of Mahmudullah eases into line

Bresnan to Shafiul Islam, 1 run, edged! Precious edge earns a single to third man. The stadium is absolutely heaving

Bresnan to Shafiul Islam, no run, excellent cricket all round. Bresnan holding his nerve with a yorker and Shafiul smart enough to try nothing silly and just carefully block it out

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 1 leg bye, another hugely-cheered leg bye. Extras have played a blinder here. Back of a length, thuds off the thigh and Mahmudullah scoots through

Big meeting now between Strauss, Bresnan and Prior. Not sure what they can say now? Start leg, hit off?
