Bangladesh began their Cricket World Cup campaign in fine fashion, smashing their highest ever ODI total against South Africa at The Oval on Sunday.

The Tigers were sent in to bat and responded in impressive fashion, reaching 330-6 in the biggest score of the tournament so far.

Shakib Al Hasan (75) and Mushfiqur Rahim (78) did the majority of the heavy lifting in a partnership of 142, yet Bangladesh were on top throughout the innings.

And having already set their best World Cup total, two runs off the final ball from Mahmudullah (46 not out) took Bangladesh to a record ODI score, topping their 329-6 against Pakistan in 2015.

South Africa require their highest successful run chase in World Cup history in order to claim victory.
