Champions Trophy 2017: India defeat Bangladesh by 9 wickets, set up final with Pakistan


BIRMINGHAM - Rohit Sharma notched up his 11th ODI century (123* off 129), while Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten 96 off 78 balls as India crushed Bangladesh by 9 wickets in the second semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham on Thursday.

The defending champions will now face Pakistan in the summit clash on Sunday at Oval.

Apart from Rohit and Kohli, opener Shikhar Dhawan laid the foundation of India's chase with a brilliant 46 off 34 balls. Rohit Sharma was adjudged Man-of-the-Match for his match-winning ton.

Although the odds for today's contest are heavily in India's favour, the last four games between India and Bangladesh have seen both teams win two matches each.

Champions Trophy title-holders India thrashed Bangladesh by 240 runs in a warm-up match at the Oval last month, a fixture where the Tigers collapsed to 84 all out.

The winners of this match will play Pakistan, who hammered England by eight wickets in Wednesday's first semi-final in Cardiff, in Sunday's final at the Oval in London.

India launched their title defence by thrashing arch-rivals Pakistan by 124 runs at Edgbaston on June 4. Both India and Bangladesh retained the sides that defeated South Africa and New Zealand respectively in the final round of the group stage.

Teams: 


Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (wkt), Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman.

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (capt), Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (wkt), Hardik Pandya, Kedhar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jaspreet Bumrah.
