After facing their first defeat in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup, India made a solid comeback as they registered a 28-run victory against Bangladesh at Edgbaston here on Tuesday.
With the victory, India have secured their semi-final spot as they now have 13 points and have consolidated their second position on the points table.
Rohit Sharma's ton helped India post a target of 315 runs for the Bangladeshi side. India then easily defended the target as all the Bangladesh batsmen were sent back to the pavilion by India bowlers when they had just 286 runs on the board.
Jasprit Bumrah took four wickets while Hardik Pandya took three wickets in the match.
Reacting on the same, Hardik Pandya shared a post captioning it as: "My reaction when Rohit tells me we’re in the semifinal 😂🏆 Come on #TeamIndia 🇮🇳". Ranveer Singh was quick to comment and wrote: "Three of the very best ! 💎💎💎 badboi comin’ thru in the clutch!" [sic]
