Cricket World Cup QF 2: India spoils neighbouring country Bangladesh's dream
Team India defeated neighbouring country Bangladesh in ICC Cricket World Cup's second quarterfinal in Australia's Melbourne city. Chasing a target of 303 runs the entire Bangladesh team got out at 193 runs, thus gifting a 109 run victory to the men in blue.

Now India will face either Australia or Pakistan in the semi-final match on 26 March.

After winning the toss India decided to bat first. The openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan gave a slow but steady start to India. For the first wicket both the batsmen did a partnership of 75 runs.

After Shikhar Dhawan's (30 runs) dismissal in-form batsman Virat Kohli came to bat. But today was not his day as he got out cheaply at the individual score of just three runs. After Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane came on the field, but he too failed to spend a considerable time on the pitch and got out when the team score was just 115 runs in 28 overs.

Then Suresh rain came to bat and he along with Rohit Sharma gave the much required partnership to Team India. It was this time period when both the batsmen played some beautiful shots. Sharma and Raina build a partnership of 122 runs, which ultimately proved to be the lifeline for team India.

Rohit Sharma (137 runs) made a brilliant century in this crucial tie against Bangladesh. Suresh Raina (65 runs) also scored a valuable half century. In the final overs Ravindra Jadeja (23 runs in 10 balls) played some big shots and helped India to cross the psychological mark of 300.

Chasing the target of 303 runs Bangladesh lost their first and second wicket in quick moments at the team's score of 33 runs. Opener Tamim Iqbal was the first batsmen to get out after making 25 runs. Soon after Iqbal, Imrul Kayes (05 runs) got run out.

Mahmudullah and Soumya Sarkar then tried to build up a partnership but Mohammad Shami got the Mahmudullah (21 runs) caught by Shikhar Dhawan when Bangladesh' score was 73 runs. Shami struck again when he got the wicket of Sarkar (29 runs) in 21st over when Bangladeshi score was 90.

Wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim (27 runs), Sabbir Rahman (30 runs) and Nasir Hossain (35 runs) tried to give some fight but failed against the Indian bowlers.

From Indian side Umesh Yadav got four wickets, and Mohammad Shami and Ravindra Jadeja got two wickets each.

Indian batsmen Rohit Sharma was chosen player of the match.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated team India for their victory against Bangladesh.
