Shakib stumped by 'worst' World Cup display

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan said his team's 87-run loss to the Netherlands in Kolkata on Saturday was their worst-ever World Cup performance. "I don't have an answer," said a visibly upset Shakib. "You can say that this is our worst, without any doubt. I don't have an answer to why we played this way." Chasing a modest 230-run target, Bangladesh folded for just 142 in 42.2 overs against some accurate Dutch bowling led by Paul van Meekeren (4-23) and Bas de Leede (2-25). Bangladesh are ninth in the 10-team table with games remaining against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia. PHOTO: AFP
