Disheartened Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore admitted he found it hard to watch as his outclassed team suffered a 138-run mauling at the hands of the West Indies in the Champions Trophy on Wednesday.

"I really thought we would put up a better showing. I found it painful to watch and it was painful for everyone connected with Bangladesh cricket," he said.

"We let the West Indies get too many runs after putting them in and then some batting indiscretions early in our innings handed it to them. We did not use the new ball as we should have done."

The West Indies smashed 269-3 off their 50 over before Bangladesh were shot out for just 131 with 10 overs to spare.
