Cricket news - World Cup Head to Head: West Indies vs Bangladesh

Bangladesh have never won a clash against West Indies in a World Cup. Will things change in 2019?

May 21, 1999: Walsh leaves Bangladesh battered and bruised

Both sides had started off their World Cup campaign on a losing note. It was at a chilly and gloomy Dublin where the two-time World Champions faced off against Bangladesh - an Associate Member playing in its first World Cup. In the absence of Curtly Ambrose - who was rested for the encounter - his partner in crime, Courtney Walsh made a mockery of the Bangladesh batting line-up by finishing with figures 4/25 in his quota of ten overs. The Asian side who opted to bat were skittled out for 182, with opener Mehrab Hossain top-scoring with 64. West Indies, while chasing, were in no hurry and the twin fifties from Ridley Jacobs and Jimmy Adams aided them in hunting down the target with 21 balls to spare.

February 18, 2003: Benoni washout leaves West Indies on the edge

Benoni welcomed the sides with overnight heavy rain and morning drizzle. However, the match started on time and Bangladesh had no hesitation in asking their opponents to bat first. After losing their openers cheaply, the West Indies middle order somehow managed to steady the storm. At 158/5, the Caribbeans had to up the ante of bother and that's when the powerful right-hander Ricardo Powell walked to the crease. In his 35-minute knock, the Jamaican scored 50 off 31 balls - including 3 fours and 4 sixes - which enabled his side to post a decent score of 244. Bangladesh, in reply, lost both their openers inside the seventh over, but rain played spoilsport and brought the game to a halt with only 50 legal deliveries bowled in the second innings.

While Bangladesh failed to win a single match in the tournament, Carl Hooper's men had to bow out of the tournament after the league stage. They missed out by 2 points, which they would have most likely fetched had weather not intervened in their encounter against Bangladesh.

April 19, 2007: West Indies earn consolation win

This Super Eight fixture was a dead rubber as both teams had no chance of progressing to the semifinals. While it was Bangladesh's last match of the competition - which included two major wins against India and South Africa - West Indies were still searching for their first win in the Super Eights. The hosts, put to bat, were very slow initially on a sluggish Kensington track. After losing their openers inside four overs, they reached fifty only in the 21st over, thanks to the patient knocks from Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Marlon Samuels. Ramnaresh Sarwan, at No. 5, provided the much-needed impetus with his knock of 91 off 90 deliveries. He along with Brian Lara stitched a 60-run stand off just 51 balls and the Caribbean sided ended with 230 on the board.

The new-ball bowlers - Daren Powell and Corey Collymore - wreaked havoc on the Asian side by reducing them to 52-6. A fifty partnership for the seventh wicket only helped the Bangladeshis to reduce the margin of defeat. A day after their 99-run win over Bangladesh, West Indies captain Brian Lara announced his retirement from international cricket. In a press conference in Barbados, the legendary batsman revealed that his final appearance would be against England, also West Indies' last match of the 2007 World Cup.

March 4, 2011: West Indies bear the brunt of host's incompetence

To call this encounter a one-sided affair would be an understatement. The match needed just 187 legal deliveries to throw in a result. After opting to bat, Bangladesh were blown away in front of their home crowd as they were skittled out for 58 in 18.5 overs - their lowest ODI score. West Indies used just three bowlers. While Sulieman Benn picked four wickets, the pace duo of Kemar Roach and Daren Sammy scalped three apiece.

It was a stroll in the park for the Caribbean side. West Indies hunted down the target in 12.2 overs, with Chris Gayle unbeaten on 37 off 36. An ugly incident occurred after the match - the bus carrying the WI players was stoned on its way back to the team hotel in Dhaka.
