ICC Cricket World Cup 2015
ICC World Cup 2015: Most likely, India will be facing Bangladesh in the 2nd quarter-final at MCG
Perhaps in terms of the wishes of the millions of the die-hard Indian cricket fans, the things are apparently moving in the right direction for Team India as MS Dhoni-led team is likely to face Bangladesh in the quarter-final.

The above stated development took place after the historic win of Bangladesh against England that paved way of the Asian nation to enter the World Cup knock-outs for the first time and now they will play their ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 quarter-final match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on March 19, 2015.

It is worthwhile to highlight that New Zealand and Australia had already qualified from Group A. Therefore, Bangladesh's win against England, which knocked England out of the competition, also secured a quarter-final berth for Sri Lanka.

It is also interesting to note that irrespective of their final group standings, Australia will be playing their quarter-final match at the Adelaide Oval. New Zealand will also play their knock-out match at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington. At the same time, Sri Lanka will play their quarter-final game at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

In terms of the emerging equation from Group B, India happens to be the only team so far to qualify for the quarter-finals. With all its probabilities, the defending champions will finish as group toppers and Bangladesh will finish at fourth, Bangladesh will take on MS Dhoni's men at MCG.

Here is the probable schedule for Quarter-finals:

Quarter-final 1: South Africa vs Sri Lanka

Time: 14:30 Local Time. (03:30 GMT | 9:00 IST)
