India in Semi-final


March 19 Rohit Sharma blasted a strokeful century as defending champions India stormed into the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup by thrashing a hapless Bangladesh by 109 runs in a lop-sided contest here today. Riding on Rohit''s spectacular 137 off 126 balls and his rollicking 122-run fourth wicket stand in only 15.5 overs with the belligerent Suresh Raina (65), India were able to post a commendable 302 for six after opting to bat at the MCG.

President Pranab Mukherjee today congratulated the Indian cricket team for their victory against Bangladesh in the quarter-final match of the ICC World Cup, 2015.

In his Tweet, the President said "Congratulations Team India on the win against Bangladesh; sportsmanship of both teams commendable."

India entered the World Cup semi-finals beating Bangladesh by 109 runs in Melbourne.
