Scorer: Sanjay Murari | Commentator: Rohan Sharma

10.30 pm: Bangladesh pull off a famous victory in Adelaide as they achieve their dream of progression into the quarter-finals. Mahmudullah's innings, which was the first time a Bangladeshi had hit a World Cup ton, set the tone, along with knocks from Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur.

Bangladesh's bowlers then answered with a thoroughly disciplined performance with the ball. Rubel Hossain was just mesmeric at the end to deliver those two fatal blows.

We hope you enjoyed our coverage of this thriller from Adelaide. Don't forget to tune into Match Point, which should be starting very shortly. We will be back again tomorrow as the Men in Blue face off against the mighty Shamrock nation. Till then, this is Rohan Sharma signing off for ESPNcricinfo.

Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh captain: Feel very proud and a special thanks to the team management and coaching staff, and of course to the boys as well. Thought the wicket was really good and we had to bowl well. In the start we were not so good, but in the middle we came back well. Mahmudullah scored his first hundred for Bangladesh, and Mushfiqur was also brilliant at the end. I think Rubel Hossain will be very happy now as he picked up four crucial wickets. Tamim did feel really bad after that dropped catch, as he is one of our best fielders, but in the end it didn't matter. Really happy for all those people back home who have wanted us to make it this far. This is for you guys. We had a good combination today, especially with the seven batsmen. They showed their guts today, and the bowlers then did a very good job.

Eoin Morgan, England captain: Pretty poor to be knocked out this early from a World Cup. Unbelievably disappointing. I thought the guys bowled well at half time, especially with the short boundaries and the way the wicket played. We bowled reasonably well, but we couldn't quite match it up with the bat. I can't pick where it went wrong. I am gutted at the moment. We struggled and fought and fought our way to try and get through to the quarter-finals, and then from there find a way through to the last few games. Again, the changes we made at the start of the tournament were necessary. The two again we made today were also necessary. We had gone four games into the group stages without the results we wanted. It ultimately comes down to the performance, and some of them did, but not all of us as a unit. We have tried to address the problem, but obviously it hasn't worked. Our expectations were higher than the way we performed, so it is obviously disappointing. No idea what will happen from here. Again, there will be an inquest over the next few weeks to see what went wrong, and then we will go from there.

10.18 pm: Don't go anywhere just yet as we expect more quotes from the match presentation.

Mahmudullah, Man of the Match: Really impressed by the attitude of our boys. All the boys chipped in and everything went well. I was just trying to bat properly and not think too much. Soumya batted really well, along with Mushy, who was the aggressor towards the end. We thought we were about 15-20 runs short initially, but we thought that if we got early wickets, then we were in with a chance. For us this victory is really special, and thank to all of the fans for supporting us. Tamim is one of the best fielders in our team, so a catch can be dropped in the match. The way Rubel bowled those last two balls, was just something really special.

Mahmudullah wins Man of the Match for his 103 in the first innings.

10.15 pm: Pool A has been decided now, with New Zealand, Australia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka into the quarter-finals.

10.13 pm: England showed plenty of heart to run this chase close, but in the end, Bangladesh's bowlers, and lack of extras, proved to be the difference. They are overjoyed as they embrace one another in the dressing room. This victory now takes them to 7 points, as they now have the luxury of playing New Zealand next without any undue pressure of qualification into the second stage. Spare a thought for England though, who look to be answering a lot of tough questions in the coming days...

10.11 pm: Stunned silence from the England dressing room as the Bangladesh players flop on top of one another on a pile. This goes up in the echelons of Bangladesh cricket as one of its greatest cricketing days. Bangladesh have pretty much secured their progression into the knockouts as England are bundled out of the tournament.

Rubel Hossain to Anderson, OUT, and Rubel has knocked the England lions out of the 2015 World Cup with a full, almost yorker-length ball which castles Jimmy as he looked to get it away through the off side

Rubel Hossain to Anderson, no run, goes for the yorker, although misses the mark slightly as Anderson had a flick at it, with this continuing through to the slip in place

What a match we are having here in Adelaide! James Anderson is the final England bat as they look to get over the line and knock off these final 16. Bangladesh, though, will not make it easy as they search for the final death blow

Rubel Hossain to Broad, OUT, The men in green are on top once more as Rubel delivers a 142 kph length straight on the stumps which Broad plays all around. Met with huge celebrations across the ground as the balance shifts once more towards Bangladesh

SCJ Broad b Rubel Hossain 9 (10m 6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

This match is slipping out of Bangladesh's hands, although a wicket here could make things highly interesting. Rubel has been tasked the responsibility of getting it

Taskin Ahmed to Broad, 1 run, slower, back of a length delivery which Broad is able to get bat on ball too as they scamper through for another tight single, reducing the equation to a very manageable 16 off 12

Expect to see that Tamim drop played over and over again if this does not shape well for Bangladesh....

Taskin Ahmed to Woakes, 1 run, fires in a yorker on middle which is just dug out as they scurry through for the tight single. There is a shy at Broad's end from the bowler, but he misses

Taskin Ahmed to Woakes, 2 runs, dropped Tamim might just have cost Bangladesh the match as he bobbles this attempted bludgeon over long on, with this landing to him in the region, after being in the air for a little while. Ends up bursting through his hands as the ball carried a bit more than he had expected

20 off 15 now as England could canter from here
