Bangladesh have dedicated their historic win over England to the freedom fighters.
Tigers stormed into the quarterfinals of the World Cup, beating England by 15 runs in a breathtaking match on Monday at Adelaide Oval.
Mahmudullah’s ton and Mushfiqur Rahim’s half-century helped Bangladesh put up a challenging 275 for 7 in 50 overs on the scoreboard.
English batsmen struggled but kept themselves in the chase, thanks to half-centuries by Ian Bell and Jos Buttler.
But they crumbled under the attacking bowling by skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Rubel Hossain and Taskin Ahmed.
Rubel picked up the last wickets in the 49th over, helping Bangladesh to the quarterfinals for the first time.
At the award ceremony, captain Mashrafe dedicated the win to “all the freedom fighters of Bangladesh” and “all those people working very hard”.
