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

CWC 2015 LIVE - Disaster Strikes Windies - 4 Wickets Down Already v India

#WestIndies v #India, #WACA, #Perth
6th Mar 2015

Tragedy has struck for the West Indies!
Barely 10 overs in their innings, their top 4 batsmen have returned to the pavilion.
Impressive start from the Indian bowlers must be said.
Both #MohamadShami and #UmeshYadav have exploited the pitch conditions beautifully to tie down the free strokemakers and then nail them into submission.

The Windies started really cautiously. Seeing #DwayneSmith and #ChrisGayle (two thunderous strokemakers upfront) play the way they did in first 5 overs, gave an indication that they had a plan to settle down and then smash it around.

Then, it started happening for India. 

#DwayneSmith tried to slash a delivery close to his body. It bounced higher than anticipated and flew into Dhoni's gloves. Shami the bowler. Well bowled
WI - 8 for 1

In 8th over, #MarlonSamuels was tragically #runout. Gayle, trying to break shackles smashed one in the air to midon where the fielder, Shami, dived and fielded. Gayle was ball watching while Samuels was already down the other end for a run. Both players in the same batting crease. Oh no. Shami threw it at the non-striker;s end where #ViratKohli disturbed the bails.
WI - 15 for 2

This runout rattled Gayle and he decided to throw caution to the wind by smashing Yadav for a boundary, an edgy 2 and a trademark six over midwicket. Everyone thought this was the moment for Gayle to explode. With luck riding by his side, he would have fancied taking his chances. But one too many you'd think. He tried to pull a jumping bouncer (bowled by Shami) from outside off to square leg where #MohitSharma was waiting to pounce on the steepler of a catch. India fans explode. The big man gone.
WI - 35 for 3

In the very next over, Yadav produced an inside edge to castle #DeneshRamdin's defence. Out first ball. 
WI -  35 for 4

They need someone to hold fort for a while now.
Can #JonathanCarter play that role with the lower middle order batsmen?
We'll wait to see.

WI - 49 for 4 (13 overs)
