World cup records: Bangladesh vs West Indies cricket teams


  • The Bangaldesh cricket team were introduced to the ICC World Cup in the 7th edition i.e. 1999, as they won the qualifying matches for the tournament along with Scotland and Kenya.
  • In all, Bangladesh cricket team has encountered the West Indian cricket team thrice and have not been able to win a single match against them, however one match in the 2003 ICC cricket World Cup ended with no result due to rain’s interference.
  • The first match between the two teams was played on Irish surface in the Clontarff Club ground in Dublin and the Bengalis were bowled out at only 182 runs, thanks to a splendid 4 wicket take by Courtney Walsh. The West Indians achieved the target with only losing 3 wickets.
  • The second match as mentioned was with no result but, it was very obvious from the score card that the West Indians cricket team were pretty much in control of the game  where the West Indians were244/9(50overs) in the first innings and before the rain stopped play, Bangladesh were 32/2 (8.1 overs).
  • In the 2007 ICC cricket World cup, Bangladesh cricket team and West Indian cricket team came across in the super 8 stage where yet again the West Indies won by 99 runs.
  • The two teams have a biased record because West Indian cricket team have a far greater experience in the game and more over the in World tournaments which is pretty evident as West Indians have always been taking over the Bengladeshis in every game.

 In 2011 cricket world cup, West Indies was able to beat Bangladesh cricket team comprehensively. As the matches were taking place in Bangladesh, crowd in Bangladesh got a bit angry. Later on the crowd pelted stones on the West Indian cricket team bus. It was an incident which suggests that better sportsman spirit should be cultivated in all test playing nations. Winning and losing is a part of the game.

None found.
