Bangladesh VS India CWC19 Match 40 Result
India won the toss and elected to bat first in the 40th match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Rohit Sharma fourth century of the tournament, allowing his team to qualify for the semi-finals of World Cup 2019 with a 28 runs victory over Bangladesh. Sharma’s 104 runs laid the groundwork for India’s 314 for 9. Yet for the second game in a row, Sharma, as was the case in India’s 31, runs defeat by English was dropped in numbers before making it 100. The Indian bowlers then combined to send Bangladesh back for 286 runs with two side relays to spare after star batsman Shakib Al Hasan with a 66.
Jasprit Bumrah took four wickets and his compatriot Hardik Pandya three, including Shakib’s award-winning scalp. Kohli can be widely regarded as the best current batsman in all forms of the game, but the skipper was full of praise for Sharma. The defeat ended Bangladesh’s slim hopes of finishing in the bottom four after their victory over South Africa and the West Indies.
The day belonged to Sharma, whose 92-ball offensive innings, with seven fours and five sixes. He was applauded by another predominantly pro-Indian Birmingham crowd. Sharma and his opening partner, KL Rahul, organized the 180th round the highest stand in the first wicket of the tournament to give India a good start. But Sharma should have been away at nine only for Tamim Iqbal to drop a simple catch at the deep midwicket following an unfortunate attempt by Paceman Mustafizur Rahman.
Liton Das finally caught Sharma in the extra coverage of Soumya Sarkar’s game. Rahul, who filled the top spot following an injury to Shikhar Dhawan, was overtaken by Rubel Hossain at 77. Mustafizur took five wickets, including star batsman Kohli, for 26 to control India’s rise. Rishabh Pant once again proved his worth at number four with a fast 48.
Mohammed Shami struck early in the Bangladesh response when Tamim, who had 22, cut the ball off his stumps. Shakib recorded a total of more than fifty points, including two hundred, to keep Bangladesh on the hunt. But Pandya’s second spell leave Bangladesh struggling at 179-6 in 34th over.
Shakib played well but was defeated by a slower ball and caught undercover. Mohammad Saifuddin was unbeaten 51 while Bumrah ended the match with nets in successive deliveries. Bangladesh will face Pakistan in their final group match at Lord’s on Friday. India will meet Sri Lanka on Saturday on the final day of the preliminary round-robin round.
