India became the 2nd team after Australia to seal their semi-final berth in the World Cup 2019 as they registered a 28-run win against Bangladesh. Rohit Sharma kept going from the very first ball as he scored a 92-ball 104 which set the platform for 314/9 despite the poor finish. Bangladesh tried to keep themselves in the chase but every time they thought of sealing the moment, they failed. An unbeaten 38-ball 51 from Mohammad Saifuddin raised the hopes for Bangla fans before Jasprit Bumrah came up with yet another golden finish.

All the statistical highlights from India’s 28-run victory against Bangladesh in Birmingham:

Yet another hundred for Rohit:

4 – Number of centuries for Rohit Sharma in this tournament; the most by any player in a single edition of the World Cup. Kumar Sangakkara also had four hundreds during the 2015 edition in consecutive innings. These two are the only instances of players scoring four tons in an ODI series/tournament.

Rohit matches Sachin and Yuvraj:

3 – Number of player of the match awards for Rohit Sharma in this World Cup; the 3rd Indian player with three such awards in a single CWC edition. Sachin Tendulkar recorded such feat in 2003 while Yuvraj Singh ended up with four POTM awards during the 2011 edition.

Bumrah cleans up:

4 – Jasprit Bumrah picked up four wickets in this game; all via bowled. He is the first Indian pacer to pick up four wickets in an ODI via bowled. Among all Indian bowlers, only Anil Kumble has achieved this feat. Kumble had castled four batsmen during his 6-fer against the Windies in the 1993 Hero Cup final.

5 – As many as five Bangladesh batsmen got bowled in this game; the joint-most number of bowled wickets for India in a World cup game. India also dismissed five opposition players via bowled against England in 1983, New Zealand in 1987 and Windies in 1996 edition matches.

The last instance of India picking up as many as five bowled wickets in an ODI was in the 2011 Cuttack ODI against the Windies.

The record stand:

180 – The 180-run partnership between Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul is the highest opening stand for India in the World Cup. Rohit shared 174 runs for the first wicket with Shikhar Dhawan in the 2015 edition while chasing against Ireland.

2 – Rohit-Rahul pair is the 8th Indian pair with multiple century stands in the World Cup. They are the 3rd Indian opening pair with more than one 100-run stand only after Rohit-Dhawan and Sachin Tendulkar-Virender Sehwag.

Shakib alongside the greats:

11 – Number of fifty-plus scores for Shakib Al Hasan in World Cups; the joint third-most by any player. Sachin Tendulkar (21) and Kumar Sangakkara (12) are ahead of Shakib while Ricky Ponting also has 11 fifty-plus scores in CWC.

Mustafizur frizzes India again:

2 – Mustafizur Rahman became the 2nd player to claim a 5-wicket haul in the World Cup for Bangladesh. Shakib Al Hasan took 5/29 in Bangladesh’s previous game against Afghanistan in Southampton.

3 – The 5-fer in this game was Mustafizur’s 3rd ODI 5-wicket haul against India. He picked up two in his first two ODI matches against Indians. He is only the 3rd player to bag three or more 5-fers in ODI format against India. Brett Lee leads with four 5-fers while Aaqib Javed also has three 5-fers against India.

4 – This was the 4th time Mustafizur has taken a 5-wicket haul for Bangladesh in ODIs; the joint-most by any player. Abdur Razzak also has four 5-fers in ODI cricket for Bangladesh.

India’s largest contingent:

15 – Dinesh Karthik made his World Cup debut nearly 15 years after his ODI debut and 12 years after being part of a CWC squad. He is the 15th player to be used by India in the World Cup; the most number of players that India used in a single edition of CWC. All the 15 players of the 2011 World Cup squad played at least one match.

Fizz betters Nehra’s record:

23y 299d – At the age of 23 years and 299 days, Mustafizur Rahman became the 6th youngest player and the youngest left-arm bowler to bag a 5-wicket haul in World Cup. The previous youngest left-arm bowler with a CWC 5-fer was Ashish Nehra at 23y 303d during the 2003 edition against England.

Bangladesh and conceding 300:

5 – Bangladesh has conceded 300+ runs for the 5th time in this tournament; the most number of times by any team in a single edition of World Cup. Namibia in 2003 and Windies in 2007 conceded four 300+ totals each.

Overall, Bangladesh is only the 2nd side to concede 300+ on five instances in an ODI series/tournament. India was on the receiving end of the same fate during their home ODI series against Australia in 2013.
