Summary

  • LONDON, June 2 (Reuters) – Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan put together a record partnership as Bangladesh reached 330 for six wickets to set South Africa a formidable victory target in their World Cup match on Sunday.
  • The pair scored 142 runs for the third wicket to notch up Bangladesh’s highest World Cup partnership.
  • Bangladesh dominated the bowling to reach 217-2 before Shakib was bowled for 75 by Imran Tahir in the 36th over while attempting a sweep shot to a full-pitched ball.
  • Mahmudullah’s unbeaten 46 and 26 runs off 20 balls from Mosaddek Hossain put Bangladesh in a dominant position.
  • South Africa’s gamble of putting Bangladesh into bat and hoping to bounce them out cheaply with their pace attack fell flat on a docile wicket, and was exacerbated by a hamstring injury to opening bowler Lungi Ngidi, who left the field after bowling just four overs.
