England have been knocked out of the 2015 ICC World Cup after their latest defeat at the hands of Bangladesh at Adelaide Oval on Monday.

The Three Lions brought their miserable campaign to an end in dismal fashion after they were bowled out for 260 chasing a target of 275.

England will now face Afghanistan on Friday to decide the fifth and sixth place in Group A, in the final act of a campaign that will be considered one of their worst in history, having produced just one win off five matches.

England had won the toss and elected to field first. The Asian side went on to post a total of 275 runs, losing seven wickets in the process. In reply, England were bowled out for 260 and Bangladesh won the match by 15 runs. The Asian side for the first time have made it to the quarter finals of a World Cup.

Bangladeshi batsman Mahmudullah has become the first player for the country to score a century in a World Cup and was named Man of the Match for the knock of 103 off 138 balls.

England had made two changes to their playing XI, as Gary Ballance was replaced by Alex Hales and Chris Jordan came in for Steven Finn.

Finn was their leading wicket taker in the tournament with eight wickets, despite that, he was dropped for the match.

James Anderson struck early for the English side as two quick wickets sent both the openers back to the pavilion. Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah then put on a 91-run partnership between them for the third wicket.

Following Sarkar's dismissal for 40 and Shakib Al Hasan giving away his wicket after scoring just two runs, Mushfiqur Rahim walked in the middle. He, along with Mahmudullah put on a match winning partnership of 141 runs.

Mahmudullah went on to score his maiden century and also became the first player for the Tigers to score a hundred in the World Cup, before being run out for 103 runs.

Rahim managed 89 runs and helped Bangladesh post a total of 275 runs.

In reply, Moeen Ali was run out early in the innings. Ian Bell (63) and Alex Hales (27) tried to give the Three Lions a breakthrough but failed. Joe Root also departed after scoring just 29 runs, from where on it looked tough for the English side. Eoin Morgan was dismissed for a duck, which is his fifth in the last 11 innings.

Jos Buttler's knock of 65 down the order along with Chris Wokaes unbeaten 42, somewhat revived hopes for England, but two wickets by Rubel Hossain in the 49th over ensured victory for Bangladesh and ended the Three Lions' hope of progressing in the tournament.
