JOHANNESBURG - Bangladesh have picked up their second win of the 2015 Cricket World Cup.

They followed up their 105 run victory over Afghanistan with a six wicket win over Scotland on Thursday morning in Nelson.

The Scots scored 318/4 thanks to a superb 156 from Kyle Coetzer.

There wasn't much support for the opener with 39 from Preston Mommsen the next highest scorer.

Taskin Ahmed was the pick of the Bangladeshi bowlers picking up 3/43 in his seven overs.

In reply, the Tigers put together a team effort with four half centuries in the top five.

Similar to Scotland, it was their opener that did the most damage with Tamim Iqbal scoring 95.

He shared in a 139 run partnership with Mahmudullah, while Shakib Al Hasan and Sabbir Rahman put together an unbeaten stand of 75 to guide them over the line.
