Sabbir Rahman dived for a catch off David Warner, who was batting on 10, and almost grasped the ball in his hands before it somehow slipped out. The opener was given another life, again by Sabbir, who botched an opportunity for a run-out in the 26th over. After a shaky start, the left-hander made full use of those two lifelines and went on to score a blistering 166 off 147 balls -- the highest individual score in the current World Cup. The destructive opener seemed to be back in his groove, lacing his innings with 14 boundaries and five maximums. However, his magnificent innings came to an end when Soumya Sarkar finally had him caught at third man with a slower short delivery in the 45th over. Although Warner had a wry smile as he watched the ball make its way up, it was a happy moment on a bleak day for the Tigers.
