(SOUNDBITE) (English) BANGLADESH ALL ROUNDER AND CAPTAIN SHAKIB AL HASAN SAYING: "Once we started batting, the way the openers started their innings everyone in the dressing room felt good and comfortable and relaxed.

That helped us a lot in the dressing room, that everyone was feeling comfortable so at no point of time we had to panic, so that was the best part of this chase I think." TAUNTON, ENGLAND, UK (JUNE 17, 2019) (ACTION IMAGES VIA REUTERS PICTURES - ACCESS ALL) (MUTE) 3.

STILL - WEST INDIES CAPTAIN JASON HOLDER LOOKING DEJECTED AT THE END OF THE MATCH STORY: Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan scored his second century in as many World Cup matches and Liton Das cracked an unbeaten 94 as they thumped twice champions West Indies by seven wickets on Monday (June 17).

Chasing 322 for a famous victory, Shakib took complete control with an unbeaten 124 off 99 deliveries, as his ninth ODI century guided Bangladesh home with 51 balls to spare.

The 32-year-old captain became the second Bangladesh player to pass 6,000 runs in ODIs after Tamim Iqbal, making his fourth consecutive 50-plus score to move past Australia skipper Aaron Finch as the tournament's top scorer with 384 runs.

Man of the match Shakib led the second highest successful run chase in World Cup history, matching Bangladesh's effort against Scotland four years ago.

Only Ireland have chased down a bigger total when they scored 329-7 to beat England in 2011.

After Bangladesh started strongly through openers Tamim (48) and Soumya Sarkar (29), Shakib and Das added 189 runs for the fourth wicket to take the game away from West Indies.

World Cup debutant Das, who smashed Shannon Gabriel for three consecutive sixes in the 38th over, scored the winning runs with a boundary off the same bowler.

West Indies opener Shai Hope made a patient 96 while opener Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer also made half-centuries to help the Caribbean side post 321-8 after being asked to bat first.

Hope anchored the innings superbly with his 121-ball knock while Lewis hit 70 before Hetmyer's 26-ball 50 and skipper Jason Holder's 33 off 15 balls boosted the West Indies total.

Bangladesh, who are fifth in the table with five points, meet holders Australia on Thursday while West Indies play New Zealand on Saturday.
