It’s India vs Pakistan

 Jul 01, 2017

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli batted spiritedly to take India into the ICC Champions Trophy finals with a nine wicket win against Bangladesh.

Rohit Sharma played a classic knock of an unbeaten 123. He was supported by Shikhar Dhawan’s quick fire 46. Next came skipper Virat Kohli, in excellent form, who remained unbeaten with 96 off 78 balls.

The Indians were on top of the game right through and played like true champions. The real test however will be when they play arch rivals Pakistan to retain the trophy. It must be noted that creditably India is playing the finals for the Champions trophy the fourth time.

Bangladesh scored 264/7. India needed only 40.1 overs to score 265/1 and register a convincing victory.

For Bangladesh, Tamim and Rahim scored 70 and 61 respectively. Bowlers Kedar Jhadhav and Bumrah claimed two wickets each. Rohit Sharma’s 123 came off 129 balls. The fluidity of Virat’s bat and his superb fielding were a delight to watch.

The boys in blue now have to prove themselves in the finals.
