World Cup 2015: India storm into semifinals by thrashing Bangladesh

Mar 20, 2015, AFPSydney: India cruised into the World Cup semi-finals on Thursday with a crushing 109-run win over Bangladesh, setting up a possible showdown with bitter rivals Pakistan for a place in the final. Rohit Sharma’s 137 helped the defending champions shake off Bangladesh’s shackles to pile up 302 for six at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. In reply, and trying to become the first team to successfully chase a 300-plus run target to win a one-day international at the MCG, Bangladesh were never in contention, slipping to 193 all out in the 45th over. Source: The Asian AgeImage:
