ICC World Cup 2019: Twitter Impressed by Bangladesh's 'Good Fight' vs India

India sealed their semifinal spot with a 28-run win over Bangladesh in Match 40 of the ICC World Cup 2019 at Edgbaston, Birmingham. It wasn’t all rosy as Bangladesh fought hard but India always had too much on the board.

Batting first, India were given an early reprieve as Rohit Sharma was dropped by Tamim Iqbal at deep midwicket. It proved to be costly as the opener went on to score his fourth century in the competition.

Bangladesh managed to dismiss KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya in quick succession. But Rishabh Pant made a big impression but fell two runs short of a half-century.

However, exceptional final spells from Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman helped Bangladesh restrict India to 314/9.

Both Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal started bright for the Tigers but suffered tame dismissals. Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib looked set for a big stand but the former fell to Yuzvendra Chahal.

It was once again, Shakib Al Hasan who fought brilliantly for his half-century but India kept taking wickets at regular intervals and ensured a 28-run win. Jasprit Bumrah shined with his spell of 4/55 and was the talk of the town with Hardik Pandya chipping in with 3/60.
