Bangladesh`s 58 all out fourth lowest total in World Cup
Mirpur: Bangladesh suffered the ignominy of being bowled out for the fourth lowest total in World Cup history when they were dismissed for a paltry 58 by West Indies in a Group B match on Friday.
The lowest ever in a World Cup match -- and second overall in one-day cricket -- was the 36 all out scored by Canada against Sri Lanka in Paarl in the 2003 edition.
The second lowest total in any World Cup match -- 45 all out -- is jointly in the name of Canada and Namibia. Canada did that against England in Manchester in 1979 while Namibia`s dubious feat was in the second innings against Australia at Potchefstroom in the 2003 edition.
Bangladesh`s 58 all out in 18.5 overs on Friday was 11th lowest overall total in the history of ODI cricket.
Zimbabwe hold the dubious distinction of scoring the lowest total in an ODI -- 35 all out in 18 overs – against Sri Lanka in Harare in April 2004.
The lowest ODI total by a major cricketing country – 43 all out in 19.5 overs -- is in the name of Pakistan against the West Indies in Cape Town in February 1993.
