ICC World Cup 2019: Twitter Reactions – KL Rahul, MS Dhoni hit centuries as India thrash Bangladesh in final warm-up match

Posted On / /

India wrapped their preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with a thumping 95-run victory over Bangladesh in their second and final warm-up match in Cardiff on Tuesday (May 28).

KL Rahul’s stylish hundred at No. 4 and a throwback to MS Dhoni’s days of yore were the big gains for India.

Rahul (108 off 99 balls) took the attack back to the opposition after early dismissals while Dhoni’s free-spirited approach also got him a century (113 off 78 balls) as their 164-run partnership for the 5th wicket powered India to 359/7 against a Bangladesh attack that went off the boil.

Bangladesh batsmen barring Liton Das (73) and Mushfiqur Rahim (90), who added 120 runs for the third wicket, were never in the chase. They were bundled out for 264 in 49.3 overs.

Among bowlers, Kuldeep Yadav (3/47 in 10 overs) and Yuzvendra Chahal (3/55 in 10 overs) gained in much-needed confidence going into the tournament proper.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
