6.32pm And that is all from our coverage. Thanks for joining us! On behalf of Thilak, Saurabh, and Peter, this is goodbye.

Mashrafe: The crowd has been fanatstic throughout this tournament.Shakib's been fantastic. He's scoring runs and whenever we need he's getting us wickets. I think that partnership wasn't very big but Mushy and Shakib partnership was important. Tamim batted well and Riyadh's innings was important. I think the physio will take a call later on him. Still one week left, so he could be alright. We will try our level best (against Pakistan and India), that's all I can say to the fans.

Gulbadin: Obviously we played tough games the last two games. Today we missed something in the fielding, 30-40 runs extra. The wicket was slow, it helped the spinners. But it wasn't that helpful in second innings. Credit to Shakib.

[Najib at 8] He hits it strongly, we thought it would be nice to send Ikram to take singles and keep it ticking.

I think we missed something this tournament, with things like injuries. We're missing something.

Shakib: Yes it's been great throughout this WC. Luckily we started well so the fans have been behind us. I think the five wickets gave me greater pleasure. I had to work really hard for the fifty. Mushfiq played an important knock, without him we wouldn't have got the runs. We knew it was going to be tough with their three spinners, so it needed a team effort. I did work really hard before the WC, I was well prepared. The best I could ever be prepared. It's paying off. Definitely want it to carry on. Our next two games against India and Pakistan are big games.

Shakib Al Hasan is the Man of the Match.


Shabd Wahal: "Top 7 teams points tally reads like this-11,10,9,8,7,6,5. The countdown has begun for the semifinal spot. Excited."

Tariq: "Shinwari was left stranded on 49. No wonder he is frustrated "

Shabd Wahal: "Bangladesh matches no longer David Vs Goliath against top teams. It's fight of equals and no longer be termed as upset anymore."

Ovy: "This is Shakib's world. We're just living in it! "


6:14pm A win by 62 runs. Shakib at it again. Big grin as he walks off and shakes hands. What a herculean World Cup performance it has been so far. Already good enough to go down as one of the best ever. A fifty and five-for for him today. He is yet to have an average day this tournament. Bangladesh haven't had too many average days either. They keep marching on as vigorously as they have been all tournament long. Clipping at the heels of England now in fifth place.

Arun : "Shakib may well be the best all rounder after Kallis. Long way to go to become the best ever! "
