World Cup Cricket 2015: Bangladesh vs England
England had to leave the group stage for the third time in five World Cups. Bangladesh, on the other hand, only passed the first round for the second time. “I’m upset at the moment,” said English skipper Eoin Morgan. “In the coming weeks there will be a judicial investigation into what happened and what went wrong. Then we will continue.” Coach Peter Moores said he felt “hollow inside” and “deeply disappointed” after England’s demise.
England was once again humiliated on their own cricket grounds and clearly expelled from the match by a vibrant Bangladeshi team. Thousands of supporters watched the demise and the fans of Bangladesh could hardly believe their luck.
In itself it was not even such a small intermediate score. Set 276 to win after Mahmudullah backed up the Bangladesh innings with his country’s first century at a World Cup. England seemed almost out of the race, not against the spin as would be expected, but an urgent seamstress that ripped England out of the way. The middle order, including captain Eoin Morgan for a fourth-ball-out, were fifth duck in his past nine innings.
Bangladesh’s victory also secured Sri Lanka’s place in the last eight, alongside Pool A winners New Zealand and Australia. England, meanwhile, faced a dead rubber against Afghanistan in Sydney on Friday. A fourth defeat in five games was the latest episode in 23 years of World Cup failure, since they had reached the final in 1992.
Enough reason to celebrate for the people of Bangladesh! Thousands of fans went out on the streets to honor their team. Carrying the national flag, shouting, singing and dancing on the victory.

What is Cricket?
Cricket is one of the ball sports, more precisely one of the batting ball games. Two teams compete against each other in a combination of hitting, catching and running. One of the two teams is the “batting” team. It has the right to hit and the opportunity to score points (runs). A point (run) is achieved when a batsman reaches a line on the opposite side of the pitch (a 20.12m long field).
Meanwhile, the other team and their players are spread across the field and try to prevent this. There is the possibility to achieve several runs by further runs or by hitting the ball over the field boundary. In the center of the action is the duel between the thrower and the batsman, whereby particular attention is paid to individual players in this team sport.
The from England originated game was exported to the colonies and is now played mainly by England, Australia, India, South Africa, West Indies, Pakistan, Sri Lanka , New Zealand, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
