After getting defeated at the hands of hosts England, India has got back to winning ways in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. The game against Bangladesh witnessed the men in blue delivering a thumping performance to throw the opposition out of the ongoing mega-event in England and Wales.
India batted first to post a gigantic total of 314 runs and Bangladesh fell 28 runs short to record their 4th defeat of the competition. Once again, Rohit Sharma was seen at his best as the aggressive opening batsman smashed a delightful century to thump Bangladesh. In his epic knock of 104 runs, the Indian veteran consumed only 92 balls to smash 7 fours and 5 sixes.
With this ton, Rohit became only the second Indian batsman after great Sachin Tendulkar to score 500 runs in a single edition of World Cup. The 32-year old feasted on Bengali bowlers to produce his fourth century of the competition which brought him at par with Sri Lankan great Kumar Sangakkara. With this victory, India sealed their semi-final berth with a game left. For his heroics, the Maharashtra born was given the player of the match award.
