Cricketing fraternity reacts to England's shock World Cup exit!
Bangladesh knocked England out of the World Cup with a sensational 15-run Pool A victory at the Adelaide Oval on Monday to make the quarter-finals.
New Delhi: Bangladesh knocked England out of the World Cup with a sensational 15-run Pool A victory at the Adelaide Oval on Monday to make the quarter-finals.
Rubel Hossain was Bangladesh`s star at the finish, clean bowling Stuart Broad and last man James Anderson to seal victory for the Tigers as England finished on 260 all out chasing a target of 276.
Earlier, Bangladesh -- who had been eight for two -- made 275 for seven after being sent into bat, with Mohammad Mamudullah (103) compiling the country`s first individual World Cup hundred and Mushfiqur Rahim making 89.
Defeat meant England -- whose only win at the tournament so far has been against non-Test Scotland -- couldn`t claim a quarter-final place but Bangladesh`s victory saw them into the last eight along with Sri Lanka.
New Zealand and Australia complete the qualifying picture from Pool A for the quarter-finals.
Here are some reactions from the cricket universe after England's shock exit from the ICC World Cup 2015.
I CANNOT BELIVE THIS! I JUST CANNOT! But, well done Bangladesh! You deserved it! #ENGvBAN
