HAMILTON, New Zealand (AP) -- Mahmudullah followed an historic World Cup century against England four days ago with another, posting a commanding 128 not out Friday as Bangladesh scored 288-7 in a Pool A match against unbeaten New Zealand.

Mahmudullah's 103 in a 15-run win which eliminated England was the first century by a Bangladesh batsman in a World Cup match. He followed it Friday with his second one-day international century and the highest individual score for his nation in the marquee tournament in the 50-over format.

He came to the crease when Bangladesh was 27-2 in the 10th over and carried his bat for the remainder of the innings, hitting 12 boundaries and three sixes to lift his run tally for the tournament to 344 and his average to 68.8.
