W Indies v Bangladesh: over-by-over
Latest: West Indies 244-9 (50 overs) v Bangladesh 31-2 (8.1 overs) Match abandoned - rain

Bangladesh are chasing 245 for victory over the West Indies but the players have been called off the field because of rain.

Already the Bangladeshis, whose best total in this World Cup to date is 124, have lost the early wickets of openers Al-Sahariar and Ehsanul Haque.

Ricardo Powell earlier starred for the Caribbean side with a thrilling cameo, scoring 50 from just 31 balls.

9th over: The players are called off because of the rain.

8th over: Mohammad Ashraful almost nudges his first ball into the gloves of Ridley Jacobs. He makes amends with a beautifully driven four. But the players might be called off soon as the rain begins to fall more heavily.

7th over: Ehsanul is sent back to the pavilion after being bowled by a cracking Dillon delivery. He has been lucky to last this long.
Bangladesh 19-2

6th over: Hooper surprisingly drops his second catch of the innings. The Windies captain had time to take the catch off Ehsanul but it flew through his hands over his left shoulder. Finally one sticks from Al-Sahariar three balls later into the hands of Gayle.
Bangladesh 19-1

5th over: Dillon beats the bat with some slight movement away from Ehsanul. His good work is marred by a wide the following delivery.

4th over: Ehsanul steers the ball to the boundary for the first time in Bangladesh's innings. His second four follows two balls later with a fortunate thick edge.

3rd over: Once again a catch is dropped, this time a fully outstretched Carl Hooper failing to get to grips with a difficult chance, which flew off the bat of Al-Sahariar.

2nd over: Vasbert Drakes nearly gets off to the perfect start but Chris Gayle spills a relatively simple catch sent to him at slip by Ehsanul Haque. Just one run comes off the over.

1st over: Mervyn Dillon gets superb movement off his third delivery and Al-Sahariar is lucky to keep his stumps intact. Two balls later the Bangladesh opener just misses second slip with a thick edge.


50 overs: Manjural claims another wicket when Mervyn Dillon is brilliantly caught by Mohammad Ashraful, but his final over is characteristically expensive.
West Indies 242-9

49th over: Vasbert Drakes is run out for a duck by Rafique. The West Indies are losing their momentum.
West Indies 232-8

48th over: Fittingly, Powell reaches 50 with his fourth six of a sensational cameo of an innings. But he is out next ball, caught by Hossain off the bowling of Islam.
West Indies 231-7

47th over: West Indies captain Hooper is caught and bowled hitting down the ground by Alok Kapali. Ridley Jacobs is the next batsman in.
West Indies 217-6

46th over: Another expensive over for Bangladesh. The explosive Powell, who is in imperious form, strikes another six - this time from Manjural.

45th over: Jubair bowls no-balls with each of his first three deliveries. The over goes for 19 as Powell hits another mighty six and the West Indies pass the 200 mark.

44th over: Mahmud's over goes for 12, including a huge six hit down the ground by the powerful Powell.

43rd over: Rafique's allotted overs finally come to an end. Powell guarantees two runs for the Windies with some zippy running between the wickets.

42nd over: Powell and Hooper meet in the middle to briefly discuss tactics but, for all their efforts, they cannot pierce the Bangladeshi fielders.

41st over: Powell is renowned as a big hitter but delays unleashing the big shots just yet and is content to aid Hooper with some quick running between the wickets.

40th over: Sarwan gives his wicket away cheaply after looping the ball to bowler Rafique.
West Indies 158-5

39th over: Hooper is left in a muddle by Rafique's leg spin and is fortunate not be given out lbw.

38th over: Mahmud returns to the bowling attack but opens erratically with a full toss. Luckily for him Hooper scores just one off it. But he and Sarwan lift the tempo with seven off the over.

37th over: Sarwan is finally given some width by Rafique and uses the delivery to split two fielders with his first four.

36th over: Hooper looks angry after failing to dispatch a gift delivery to the boundary. He breathes a sigh of relief, though, as Ehsanul's 10 overs come to an end with figures of 2-34.

35th over: Sarwan whips the ball off his legs for a single, which Hooper repeats the next ball in an otherwise uneventful over.

34th over: The second drinks break arrives after Ehsanul's ninth over.

33rd over: The pressure is on Hooper and new batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan to steady West Indian nerves. The pair bide their time, taking one off Rafique's latest over.

32nd over: Lara's innings ends in dramatic fashion when going for his half-century. He tries to drive through the line but is caught by Al-Sahariar off Ehsanul.
West Indies 130-4

31st over: Hooper smashes the first six of the innings into the West Indian dressing room as he finally manages to get to grips with Rafique's spin. After he and Lara scored only 10 runs off the previous five overs, Hooper manages 10 singlehandedly in the 31st over.

30th over: Hooper's attempts to cut loose in frustration almost see him nick the ball into the gloves of Khaled Mashud.

29th over: Rafique contains Hooper and Lara, and the Windies run rate drops below four an over for almost the first time in the innings.

28th over: Hooper narrowly avoids being run out as Alok Kapali's throw goes just wide of the stumps. He gets the run, one of three from that over.

27th over: Lara looks reluctant to go for the sneaky singles after being run out in the previous game by New Zealand's Chris Cairns.

26th over: Chanderpaul is trapped lbw by an in-swinging faster delivery by Ehsanul for 29.
West Indies 108-3

25th over: A spin variation is added to the attack, courtesy of leg spinner Mohammad Rafique. His turn fails to curtail Lara, who looks on course for his 49th one-day half-century after two supreme cut shots.

24th over: Chanderpaul steers his side to the century mark as he finds holes in the Bangladeshi defence once again.

23rd over: For 17, Jubair is showing good maturity after his earlier dodgy spell. Another unsuccessful lbw appeal is the highlight of another solid over.

22nd over: Lara takes his partnership with Chanderpaul past the half-century mark with a one-bounce four. An lbw appeal follows the next ball, but to no avail.

21st over: Lara is showing few signs of the mystery illness which has kept him out of recent international cricket as he takes his score to 25.

20th over: Chanderpaul is showing his value to his side as he continues to nudge the ball into the gaps. Lara, in contrast, charges down the wicket to smash the ball down the ground. The earlier wet conditions see the ball stop dead and he picks up just two runs.

19th over: The glitches of Jubair's opening spell look to have gone now as he finds the perfect line and length for Lara. But the West Indian batsman fends off the attack with a single.

18th over: Ehsanul Haque is the fourth bowler into the attack and looks to be aiming to contain the Caribbean pair rather than anything. Chanderpaul keeps the scoreboard ticking over.

17th over: The drinks cart comes on as the Windies add another three runs to their tally.

16th over: Lara unleashes the shot of the day, timing a wayward delivery supremely to send it to the ropes for four.

15th over: Jubair is back in the bowling attack and looks better the second time around. Chanderpaul knocks him to the boundary but very nearly drags the ball onto the stumps in the process.

14th over: Lara and Chanderpaul both look to have got their eye in now, producing a string of singles and a solitary Chanderpaul four off Mahmud's fifth over.

13th over: Manjural is picking up the pace of his bowling. It is enough to stifle Lara and Shivnarine Chanderpaul for the time being.

12th over: Mahmud beats Lara's bat with some excellent movement off the seam. Chanderpaul restores some Caribbean pride as he beats the fielders with a mistimed pull shot.

11th over: Manjural adds two more wides to take the extras total to 17 already.

10th over: Hinds joins Gayle back in the pavilion after edging to Al-Sahariar at first slip following a rapid rising delivery by Mahmud. Hinds is unlucky to be out, though, after replays show Mahmud had bowled a blatant no ball.
West Indies 40-2

9th over: Lara gently pushses the ball for four straight past Manjural to match Hinds' early strike to the ropes.

8th over: Mahmud manages to contain Lara with a maiden over.

7th over: Hinds picks up a solitary run from Manjural, flicking the ball to square leg.

6th over: Khaled Mahmud joins the bowling attack and is promptly smacked to the boundary by Hinds.

5th over: Chris Gayle scoops the ball into the hands of Sanwar Hossain off Manjural - an easy catch.
West Indies 19-1

4th over: The first boundary of the innings goes to Hinds as he unleashes a superb stroke to mid-off off the back foot.

3rd over: Manjurul gets the ball to move around in the overcast conditions, conceding just one run in the process.

2nd over: Talha Jubair starts his first World Cup match with two wides and two no balls.

1st over: Manjural Islam appeals for lbw and a catch all in one delivery against Wavell Hinds. Both appeals are correctly rejected. Two byes and two wides mar an otherwise good over.

Bangladesh: Khaled Mashud (captain), Al-Sahariar, Ehsanul Haque, Mohammad Ashraful, Sanwar Hossain, Alok Kapali, Mohammad Rafique, Manjural Islam, Talha Jubair, Tushar Imran, Khaled Mahmud.

West Indies: Carl Hooper (captain), Chris Gayle, Wavell Hinds, Brian Lara, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Ricardo Powell, Ridley Jacobs, Vasbert Drakes, Mervyn Dillon, Corey Collymore.
