Rohit century puts India in control against Bangladesh

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Rohit Sharma, aided by a contentious decision that gave him a second life, scored his first World Cup hundred on Thursday to help the defending world champions India post a daunting total of 302 for six in their quarter-final against Bangladesh.

Rohit was caught in the deep when he was on 90 but was allowed to keep batting when the umpires ruled that Rubel Hossain’s delivery was above waist-height and therefore a no-ball, although television replays suggested it was a fair delivery.

Raina emerging as one of India’s key players at World Cup

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – In a team full of stars, Suresh Raina has been happy to maintain a relatively low profile, going about his work for India calmly and without any fuss.

India relaxed before Bangladesh quarter-final

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – If India, the most watched and heavily scrutinised team in world cricket, are under any pressure ahead of Thursday’s World Cup quarter-final against Bangladesh, they are doing well to hide it.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Bangladesh know the odds are stacked against them beating India in Thursday’s World Cup quarter-final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. If history and current form are any guide, India should win in a canter.

Bangladesh have done well just to make the quarter-finals, beating England, Scotland and Afghanistan along the way, but few expect them to go any further.
