Cleckheaton opening bowler Iain Wardlaw and the Scotland team can no longer qualify for the quarter-finals of the World Cup after suffering their fourth defeat of the tournament.

The Scots went down by six wickets to Banmgladesh in Nelson which means they have lost all 12 World Cup matches they have contested since 1999.

They appeared to be in with a good chance when they made 318-8 after opener Karl Coetzer made a sparkling 156, but Bangladesh eased to victory with 11 balls to spare.

It proved to be a tough day for Wardlaw. He finished with 1-75 in 9.1 overs, his worst figures pf the tournament.

Defeat was another agonising blow for Scotland coming immediately after their dramatic one-wicket defeat to Afghanistan in Dunedin.

Wardlaw bowled the final over with Afghanistan needing five to overcome Scotland's score of 210.

Last man Shapoor Zadran hit the third ball for four to seal Afghanistan's win. Wardlaw, who took 3-53 in Scotland's three-wicket defeat by New Zealand in their opening match and one for 60 in the 119-run defeat to England, had figures of 0-61.

Scotland's next match is Sri Lanka in Hobart on Wednesday.
