India beat Bangladesh by 28 runs in their 2019 Cricket World Cup match at Edgbaston in Birmingham and held on to the second spot in the points table.
The loss means Bangladesh have been knocked out of the World Cup and are three points behind 4th-placed England, with one round of group matches still remaining.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul got India off to the most perfect start possible in the first inning, putting on 180 runs for the opening partnership. Sharma was dropped on 7 by Tamim Iqbal. The first Indian wicket only fell in the 30th over.
With the tone of the first innings set by the opening duo, the Indian middle order did not take much time to settle, going for run-a-ball strike rates from the outset.
Virat Kohli failed to reach the 50-run mark for the second time in the tournament while Rishabh Pant proved his caliber at No. 4 and MS Dhoni remained unbeaten at the end as India posted a total of 314/9 in 50 overs. Mustafizur Rahman (5/59) and Shakib al Hasan (1/41) were the best Bangladesh bowlers on display.
Bangladesh did well to keep up with the required run rate from the very beginning of the second inning, but the problem for them was that they kept losing regular wickets.
All their batsmen got starts but only Soumya Sarkar and Shakib al Hasan were able to take their scores beyond the twenties. When Shakib went out in the 34th over with 136 still to get, India looked to have bagged the match.
There was then a brave resistance put up by a partnership between Sabbir Rahman and Saifuddin, but Bangladesh were left staring at the inevitable as Bumrah took consecutive wickets off the last two balls of the 48th over the end the match.
