After early hiccups Sourav Ganguly and Yuvraj Singh put the Indian innings on track and set a launching pad for the final assault, but the Indians somehow lost the plot, in Saturday's World Cup match against Bangladesh.

From a position of 157 for four India slipped to 159 for nine in just 16 legitimate deliveries, losing five wickets while adding just two runs !!

This is now the worst five-wicket collapse in the history of the World Cup.

Take a look:
