India beat Bangladesh by 28 runs: Cricket World Cup 2019

Two days after a morale-denting defeat by England, India restored order to their World Cup campaign with victory against Bangladesh at the same venue to secure a place in the semi-finals with a group match to spare.

Rohit Sharma’s fourth century of the tournament, a feat that makes him the leading runscorer with 544, proved the key contribution as India set their opponents 315 to win.for a Bangladesh side who knew that nothing other than victory would keep alive their own hopes of reaching the last four, this will feel like an opportunity missed.

In Shakib Al Hasan they perhaps have the player of the World Cup so far. But not even the all-rounder’s sixth 50-plus score in seven matches could save his team from elimination as India’s bowlers dismissed Bangladesh for 286 in 48 overs.

Things might have been so different had Tamim Iqbal not dropped a regulation chance at deep midwicket off Mustafizur Rahman when Sharma was on nine. He went on to make 104 during a 180-run opening stand with KL Rahul.

Despite a decent comeback from Bangladesh’s bowlers, the 95 runs Sharma added afterwards proved the deciding factor in this match given India’s margin of victory was 28 runs.Steve Rhodes, Bangladesh’s English coach, admitted: “When you give guys like Rohit Sharma a chance you can pay the price. I was praying he’d hit another one in the air soon after. Tamim’s human, we’re all human and we’ve all dropped catches. Sometimes they can be very, very costly and that one proved to be.”
