CWC 2015 LIVE - Rubel Double Blow Seals It For Bangladesh vs England

#England vs #Bangladesh,

What a phenomenal game! Probably game of the tournament (although the NZ v Aus game comes very close). 

After 98 overs, we didn't have answer to our question WHO WILL BLINK FIRST?
England answered it by blinking against #RubelHossain who castled both #StuartBroad and #JamesAnderson with peach deliveries to deliver a famous win for Bangladesh at the #AdelaideOval. #ChrisWoakes, the star batsman and looking extremely well placed to sail England through, was stranded at the other end for a superb 42* (in vain though)

Bangladesh: 275 for 7
England: 260 all out
Bangladesh win by 15 runs.

Man of the Match: #Mahmudullah

With both sides needing to win this game to keep their hopes alive in the tournament, the battle went down to the wire. The tug of war continued until the very end but the Bangladeshis held their nerve and a Rubel Hossain special sealed their win in style.

With this win, #Bangladesh have qualified for the quarter final stages of #CWC15. Currently in third position, they should end up 4th since Sri Lanka's last game against Scotland should see them seated in third spot.

Current Pool A Standings
New Zealand - 10 points (5 matches)
Australia - 7 points (5 matches)
Bangladesh - 7 points (6 matches)
Sri Lanka - 6 points (5 matches)

Extraordinary scenes here at #AdelaideOval as Bangla fans go berserk in their celebrations.
But, do spare a thought for #England, especially Buttler and Woakes who really challenged that total from a hopeless position.
