World Cup 2019, India vs Bangladesh 2019 Highlights: India beat Bangladesh by 28 runs to qualify for the semifinals of the World Cup. Jasprit Bumrah (4/55) and Hardik Pandya (3/60) were stars of Indian balling attack sharing 7 wickets between them to make sure India defeated Bangladesh. Virat Kohli-led team India may have won the match but Bangladesh fought really well to make sure they were in the game. Shakib Al Hasan scored another half-century but could not take his team home. The all-rounder became the first player to score 500 runs and take 10 plus wickets in a World Cup.
For Bangladesh, Shaifuddin’s late strikes were really good as he looked to take the game from India but it was not enough to take them across the line. Bangladesh Captain Mortaza would be happy with the way his team fought back.
Earlier, India set a 315 run target for Bangladesh to chase at Edgbaston after openers Rohit Sharma (104) and KL Rahul (77) provided a solid start. Captain Virat Kohli, who himself would manage just 26 runs, would have wanted the middle order to capitalise on the launchpad provided by the openers, however, none of the batsmen were able to push the run rate. Barring Risabh Pant (48) and MS Dhoni (35), the Indian middle order once again struggled to keep up the momentum. For Bangladesh Mustafizur Rahman was the pick of the bowlers taking five wickets in his quota of 10 overs.
Indian captain Virat Kohli had won the toss and elected to bat against Bangladesh at Edgbaston. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was also good on his comeback game as he bowled good lines and made sure the Bangladeshi batsmen were not able to score runs easily. It will be interesting to see who qualifies for the semifinals after India and Australia.
India will face Sri Lanka in their final match of the league stage on July 6, 2019.
