CWC15 - Brave Bangla Tigers Bow Out Heads Held High

#India vs #Bangladesh
19th Mar 2015

They came, fought like warriors, threw everything they had but laid just failed to conquer the frontier. This is the best way to describe the Bangladesh cricket team today in their quarterfinal match vs India at the G (MCG). 

Upto 32 overs into the Indian innings (second drinks break when India was batting), they were in it and contemplating a major upset in the #CWC15. They were incisive in their bowling, sharp in field and high on intensity rocking the superstar India batting lineup.

But, the overall skill, experience and cricketing ability allowed India to step up when it mattered to thwart the Bangla tigers in their path. 

Chasing a massive 302, the Bangladesh batsmen could garner only 193 all out in 45 overs. The tried but the task was too much and the team they faced upto is rampaging like ab an avalanche through this world cup devouring teams along the way!

To highlights of the game
- Rohit Sharma's "come-of-age" century
- Suresh Raina's game changing cameo of 65 in the batting powerplay, 
 - Rubel Hossain's hostile bowling spell 
 - Shakib's beautiful spin shackles against quality spin players, 
 - Umesh Yadav's 4 wickets with swing and bounce, S
 - Shami's wickets of short pitched deliveries
 - Dhoni's catching behind the stumps
 - Dhawan;s catch to dismiss Mahmudullah
 - Jadeja's rapid fire 25, amazing fielding and 2 wickets

All in all, a good day's play where India proved to be too tough an opponent for Bangladesh.
They can therefore leave the tournament, heads held really high!
India: 302 for 6 (50 overs)
Bangladesh, 193 all out (45 overs)

Man of the Match: Rohit Sharma
