India Decimates Bangladesh in the Second Semi Final in Champions Trophy

In reply to Bangladesh's 264 for seven wickets, India won the match by scoring 265 runs for the loss of one wicket.

25 overs were bowled. Bangladesh's score was 142 on two wickets. Tamim Iqbal had scored half century. Mushfikur Rahim was close to the half-century. Virat Kohli bowled towards ball Kedar Jadhav. Jadhav is a part time bowler. By that time it seemed that Bangladesh's team would reach 300. In the first over, Jadhav gave five runs.

The last ball of the second over came from round arm action. Bowling action like round arm i.e. Malinga. Tamim Iqbal wanted to play with mid wicket. His cross-bat shot did not succeed. The ball hit the stumps directly. Jadhav did not stop here. He even trapped Mushfikur after a few hours in the net. The whole match changed with these wickets. The Bangladeshi team, rising to the big score, could only score 264 runs, which was not enough in Edgbaston. It was not such a score, which would be very easy to win a match against a team like India in the Champions Trophy semi-finals.

Indian batsmen jokingly played with the Bangladesh's bowling and won the match with nine wickets. Man-of-the-match Rohit Sharma's century (not out 123), Virat Kohli's half-century (not out 96 runs) and a missed half-century that means Shikhar Dhawan's 46 runs were included. Apart from this, India did not need anyone. Team India won the match when 9.5 overs were still to be bowled. With this victory, it is clear now that the final between India and Pakistan will be played on Sunday.

Indian sports fans are going to be thrilling day on Sunday. On one hand, where India will face Pakistan in the final of the Champions Trophy, on both sides of the hockey field in England, on this day, both opponents face-to-face will face face to face. India will face Pakistan on Sunday in the Hockey World League semi-finals.
India did not have any problem in achieving the target against Bangladesh. Rohit and Dhawan's Champions Trophy specialist Jodi gave it a start and got 87 runs in 14.4 overs for the first wicket. This pair has become the highest run pair in the Champions Trophy. This pair has scored 766 runs in nine innings so far at an average of 85.11.
Dhawan missed half-century from four runs and captain Mashrafe Mortaza caught by Musaladek Hossain caught by the ball. Dhawan has also become the highest run scorer in the Champions Trophy for India. In this case he overtook former captain Sourav Ganguly.

After this, Indian captain Kohli took the responsibility of winning the team. Together with Rohit, he struck the wicket and gave the team victory. Both of them shared the 178-run partnership for the third wicket to India in the final. Rohit played 129 balls in his century and hit 15 fours and a six. Captain Kohli played a flurry of 78 balls and hit 13 fours.

In this match, Bangladesh was under pressure from India for most of the time. There was only one time when Bangladesh had put a little pressure on India. Bangladesh had lost two wickets on 31 runs when India received the batting invitation.

After this, Tamim Iqbal (70) and Mushfikur Rahim (61) had taken wickets on the wicket. India was a bit upset here. But after both of them were dismissed, the Indian bowler did not allow the Bangladeshi batsmen to score more runs.

Both of them bowed and bowled Indian bowlers and scored runs. Tamim and Rahim added 123 runs for the third wicket. Tamim faced 82 balls and hit seven fours and a six. After this, the wickets continued to decline.


From India, Jadhav took two important wickets with 22 runs in six overs. Bumrahah and Bhuvneshwar took two wickets each for the specialist of death overs. Due to the bowling of both of these, the Bangladesh team could only add 35 runs in the last five overs.
