CWC 2019 – Twitter erupts as Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah lead India into semi-finals; knock Bangladesh out

Posted On

India sailed into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-finals and knocked out Bangladesh after Rohit Sharma’s century and Jasprit Bumrah’s four-wicket haul secured a 28-run victory over their neighbours.


Rohit (104) smashed his fourth century of the tournament and featured in a massive 180-run opening partnership with KL Rahul to help India post a formidable total of 314-9 on the board.

Shakib Al Hasan struck a defiant 66 but the lack of partnerships hurt Bangladesh, who were bowled out for 286 in 48 overs with Bumrah (4-55) sealing the victory by claiming two wickets off his last two deliveries.


India are now second with 13 points, one behind the table-toppers Australia, and will compete against Sri Lanka in their final league fixture on Saturday.
