A late flourish by West Indies saw them finish on a healthy 164 but some murderous hitting by Ashraful and an impish fifty by Aftab has charged Bangladesh to a memorable win.

Man of the Match Mohammad Ashraful : "We knew we can get the 160+ score. We have worked hard for the last one month. We had commando training and then some hard nets sessions."

Bangladesh have won and West Indies are out of the ICC World Twenty20. Joy and sorrow collide in the arena. Full-pitched, outside off stump, nudged to backward point for the winning run.

1
Rampaul to Alok Kapali, 1 run
full, straight, on the middle stump line, driven back to the stumps and Rampaul dives to his right and the ball crashes into the stumps at the other side and ricochets towards Rampaul. He recovers to fire in a throw - there was one bail on - and he found his target. It was refered upstairs but the batsman was just in.
