Bangladesh's Liton Das plays a shot during their World Cup match against the West Indies in Taunton Monday Dhaka Tribune/Md Manik from Taunton

A staggering and dominating 189-run partnership between these two was certainly a huge moment for the Tigers, not only in this match but also for the remaining fixtures

Bangladesh were under pressure when Mushfiqur Rahim got out in the 19th over. 

Earlier in that over, the Tigers also lost Tamim Iqbal to a run out, courtesy superb reflex from the West Indies pacer Sheldon Cottrell. 

Bangladesh lost two wickets in as many overs. 

The score was 121 for the loss of two wickets and it looked like the Windies might have changed the course of the game. 

But the in-form Shakib al Hasan and newcomer to the crease, Liton Kumar Das, had other ideas.

These two batted magnificently and finished the game with 51 deliveries to spare. 

A staggering and dominating 189-run partnership between these two was certainly a huge moment for the Tigers, not only in this match but also for the remaining fixtures.

Shakib was unbeaten on 124 off just 99 balls while Liton was not out on 94 off 69 deliveries. 

Brilliant batting display.
