A career-best 156 from Kyle Coetzer was not enough to get Scotland over the line against Bangladesh at the Cricket World Cup on Thursday.

Bangladesh ran out six-wicket winners, and it was Tamim Iqbal who starred with the bat, though he fell agonisingly short of a World Cup century after being dismissed on 92.
The Scots opening innings started poorly and they found themselves in trouble at 32-2 after just 10 overs.
The only man in more trouble than the Scots was square leg umpire Bruce Oxenford, who narrowly avoided being taken out by a Coetzer pull-shot.
Coetzer continued to push and was eventually dismissed after a brilliant knock of 156, but his replacement Matthew Cross done his side no favours after hitting his teammate Richie Berrington square on the wrist.
Scotland pushed on to make a solid total of 317, but it wasn’t enough as Bangladesh got over the line with 11 balls to spare.
Iqbal (92) and Mahmudullah (62) starred for the Bangladeshi’s, who now sit fourth on the Pool A table ahead of next opponents England.
