Tigers bow out

15 June 2017,Thursday, 22:23

A splendid century from Rohit Sharma and a captain’s knock by Virat Kohli have brought the curtain down on Bangladesh’s Champions Trophy campaign with a crushing semi-final defeat.

The 9-wicket win helped the defending champions set up a mouth-watering India-Pakistan final, securing their fourth final spot in the the quadrennial elite global tournament, Bdnews24.com reports.

Tamim Iqbal (70) and Mushfiqur Rahim (61) struck fine half-centuries in a 123-run stand, the Tigers’ third century partnership in the tournament, to fashion a strong base for Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Thursday.

But their middle-order failed to capitalise on it as the aspirants of a maiden final at an ICC event managed a competitive 264 for 7.

The total proved inadequate to pose any threat to the seasoned Indian batsmen.

Rohit (123) and Shikhar Dhawan (46) gave India a breezy start before the former paired with Kohli (96) in a staggering unbroken 178-run partnership to send Bangladesh packing with 59 balls to spare.


Bangladesh: 264/7 in 50 overs (Tamim 70, Soumya 0, Sabbir 19, Mushfiqur 61, Shakib 15, Mahmudullah 21, Mosaddek 15, Mashrafe 30*, Taskin 11*; Bhuvneshwar 2/53, Bumrah 2/40, Ashwin 0/54, Pandya 0/34, Jadeja 1/48, Jadhav 2/22).

India: 265/1 in 40.1 overs (Rohit 123, Dhawan 46, Kohli 96; Mashrafe 1/29, Mustafizur 0/53, Taskin 0/49, Rubel 0/46, Shakib 0/54, Mosaddek 0/13, Mahmudullah 0/10, Sabbir 0/11).

Result: India win by 9 wickets.

Man of the Match: Rohit Sharma.
