West Indies stunned Bangladesh by nine wickets in the World Cup Group B crucial match at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Friday as the co-hosts were bowled out for 58 inside 19 overs.

Bangladesh, however, is in the record books with the lowest total ever made by a Full Member nation in World Cup history.

Disaster struck Bangladeshi batsmen from the very beginning of the innings as they crumbled one after another on their home ground in front of an expectant crowd.

Bangladeshi batsman Junaid Siddique made the highest score of 25 (27).

WI left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn grabbed four wickets while Kemar Roach and skipper Darren Sammy shared the other six wickets.

Earlier, Bangladeshi captain Shakib Al Hasan won toss and opted to bat.

Bangladesh: Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Raqibul Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Naeem Islam, Mohammad Ashraful, Abdur Razzak, Rubel Hossain, Shafiul Islam.

West Indies: Darren Sammy (captain), Chris Gayle, Devon Smith, Darren Bravo, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Kieron Pollard, Nikita Miller, Devon Thomas, Kemar Roach, Sulieman Benn
