ICC World Cup 2019: Twitter Impressed by Bangladesh's 'Good Fight' vs India

Cricketnext Staff
Twitter reactions from the game between India and Bangladesh at Edgbaston, Birmingham in Match 40 of ICC World Cup 2019.

India sealed their semifinal spot with a 28-run win over Bangladesh in Match 40 of the ICC World Cup 2019 at Edgbaston, Birmingham. It wasn’t all rosy as Bangladesh fought hard but India always had too much on the board.

Jasprit Bumrah is such a superstar. Terrific in the end. But have to complement Bangladesh on the fantastic fight and getting so close, especially after Shakib got out.

Congratulations Team India #IndvBan

India reach into the semi-final of this year's World Cup.

This is the 7th time India have made it to the World Cup SF. (1983, 1987, 1996, 2003, 2011, 2015 & 2019)#INDvsBAN

India thru to the semis. Stiff fight put up by B’desh but gr8 bowling by Bumrah again at the death. All said and done thiugh, how important was the life for Rohit at the start of the Indian innings? B’desh will rue that for a long, long time

Good fight by bangladesh but deservingly team India is in Semi final . Mubarakaaaa #indvsbangladesh

— Irfan Pathan (@IrfanPathan) July 2, 2019

Quite the thriller, this one. A captivating game laced with a couple of high-quality knocks by our top order batsmen. Bowlers did their job well - picked wickets consistently and kept the pressure on. #INDVBAN #CWC19

— Suresh Raina (@ImRaina) July 2, 2019

Congratulations India on a well deserved win and cementing a place in the semi-finals. Bumrah was superb in the end but have to admire @BCBtigers for the magnificent spirit and fight they showed in the end. #IndvBan

— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) July 2, 2019

Bumrah irresistible and India are in the semis. Bangladesh are out, which means England will not necessarily be out if they lose to NZ tomorrow - but they’d need Bangladesh to beat Pakistan at Lord’s on Friday.

Batting first, India were given an early reprieve as Rohit Sharma was dropped by Tamim Iqbal at deep midwicket. It proved to be costly as the opener went on to score his fourth century in the competition.

Once you get solid opening start then things suddenly look different. And if you drop Rohit Sharma ♂️ then you have to face the music

4th 100 for @ImRo45 in the World Cup  that’s class.. keep up the good work @BCCI

— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) July 2, 2019

Since the start of 2017 Rohit has 16 centuries while Virat has 15. Someone has actually outscored Virat. Rarely you get two outstanding batsmen at their peak in the same team. The next best is 8!! Truly amazing !! #WC19

— Gaurav Sundararaman (@gaurav_sundar) July 2, 2019

5th century in 15 World Cup innings for Rohit Sharma. Amazing hunger and consistency. #IndvBan

— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) July 2, 2019

4th century in #CWC19 for Rohit Sharma. Well played,,,,,,,,,,again. 

— ian bishop (@irbishi) July 2, 2019

Such a pleasure to be at the ground to see Rohit Sharma bat like this. Would have been even more fun if he had gone on.

— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) July 2, 2019

Bangladesh managed to dismiss KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya in quick succession. But Rishabh Pant made a big impression but fell two runs short of a half-century.

Most batsmen would want to take it easy after watching a double-wicket maiden at the other end. Rishabh Pant hits a hat-trick of fours!#CWC19 #INDvBAN

— Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) July 2, 2019

I think finally we have found our no 4 batsman for the future ! Let’s groom him properly yeah ! @RishabPant777

— yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) July 2, 2019

Our boy @RishabPant777 killed it at the field today. What a confident innings, excellent form! #INDvBAN #CWC2019

— Suresh Raina (@ImRaina) July 2, 2019

However, exceptional final spells from Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman helped Bangladesh restrict India to 314/9.

Shakib is an extraordinary cricketer. There is a case for Shakib to be the greatest all-rounder the ODI game has seen. Not kidding.

— Adithya (@TheSwitch_Hit) July 2, 2019

Shakib's spell was gold dust. Despite a short boundary on one side, he kept some of the biggest hitters under check.

Afraid India haven't got the finish they wanted, they needed. Good score. But toe in the door for Bangladesh

— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) July 2, 2019

Bangladesh chased a similar score against West Indies. In the game against Australia they finished at 330 odd chasing 380. This can be chased down by Bangladesh. Poor from India yet again. The same old bogey #cwc19 #cricket #IndvBan #IndiaVsBangladesh

— Chandresh Narayanan (@chand2579) July 2, 2019

Lesser score than expected after the start india got,should be enough on this slow pitch #IndiaVsBangladesh

— Irfan Pathan (@IrfanPathan) July 2, 2019

The way Mustafizur's wrist moves on slower balls, on the slo-mo replays, is one of the best things in cricket at the moment. It's like his arm turns into water. #CWC19

— Ben Jones (@benjonescricket) July 2, 2019

Mustafizur outsmarted Dhoni in the lady over.

Plain and simple.#INDvBAN #BANvIND #CWC19

Both Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal started bright for the Tigers but suffered tame dismissals. Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib looked set for a big stand but the former fell to Yuzvendra Chahal.

Soumya Sarkar played a dreamy cover drive just minutes ago. A colleague in the press box remarked that he is always great to watch, but gives it away too often after getting 25-30. Precisely what happened. Chasing such a wide ball.  #INDvBAN #CWC19

— Anand Vasu (@anandvasu) July 2, 2019

Sarkar will be banging his head against the wall in frustration at his dismissal. The long hop could have been hit anywhere on the offisude, and he hits it straight to Kohli. Like Tamim dropping Rohit, this could be a moment B’Desh could come to regret deeply

— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) July 2, 2019

on a day he gets out to his second ball, hardik takes a wicket with his first ball!  #INDvBAN #cwc19

— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) July 2, 2019

Suicidal shot by Rahim, now the chase will be difficult for Bangladesh

— Nikhil Bapat (@BapatNikhil) July 2, 2019

Good confidence booster wicket for Chahal.

— Johns (@CricCrazyJohns) July 2, 2019

That is some excellent field placement! Mushfiq gets a bucketload of runs with that shot! #CWC19

— Srinath (@srinathsripath) July 2, 2019

It was once again, Shakib Al Hasan who fought brilliantly for his half-century but India kept taking wickets at regular intervals and ensured a 28-run win. Jasprit Bumrah shined with his spell of 4/55 and was the talk of the town with Hardik Pandya chipping in with 3/60.

India huff and puff into the semi finals! #cwc19

Well played, Bangladesh. You deserve another win this tournament. Certainly, with good planning and preparation, a semi-final contenders in 2023.

— KASHISH (@crickashish217) July 2, 2019

Really good knock by Saifuddin. Very well made 50 and was comfortable against every bowler.

The young crop of Bangladeshi cricketers (Mosaddek, Mustafizur etc.) are fearless and a lot more talented than their previous generations. Good signs for Bangladesh.#INDvsBAN #CWC19

— Aditya (@forwardshortleg) July 2, 2019

Bumrah is 24 Carat Gold. Best gets defined in a different fashion everyday. He’s just toooo good. #CWC19 #IndvBan

— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) July 2, 2019

Amazing tournament for Shakib Al Hasan. He is the first all-rounder to score 500 runs and take 10 wickets in one World Cup. #CWC19

— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) July 2, 2019

What a spell by @Jaspritbumrah93 ! We focus to much on the batting but without this man & @MdShami11 our journey in this world cup wouldn't have been possible just brilliant to watch one of the greatest Indian fast bowlers to ever grace the cricket field. #CWC2019

— Kris Srikkanth (@KrisSrikkanth) July 2, 2019

Bangladesh must take pride in this #cwc19 campaign. Lots of injuries and tactical and skill limitations apart, there was spirit about how they went about things.

If not for a result here, a washout there and today's bunch of soft dismissals, it could have been different story.

— Mohammad Isam (@Isam84) July 2, 2019

WEL done Indi for qualifying for Semis.. nice win today against a strong Bangladeshi team.

Still not my best Indian Team.. I want @imjadeja in my best XI #SelectDugout @StarSportsIndia

— Dean Jones (@ProfDeano) July 2, 2019

Take a bow @Jaspritbumrah93 champion stuff Congratulations team Indai for the victory @bcci #INDvBAN #CWCUP2019
