PM Narendra Modi congratulates Indian team for entering WC semi finals

New Delhi(Indilens web team): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hailed Indian cricket team after it beat Bangladesh to enter the semi-final of World Cup.

“Excellent game, excellent performance! Congrats yet again Team India,” Modi tweeted.

His tweet came soon after India beat Bangladesh by 109 runs in a quarter final match played in Melbourne.

Rohit Sharma stroked an authoritative century and Umesh Yadav claimed four wickets to help defending champion India advance to the World Cup semifinals with a 109-run win over Bangladesh on Thursday.

Sharma scored 137 off just 126 balls with 14 boundaries and three sixes, sharing a 122 -run fourth-wicket partnership with Suresh Raina (65) to help India reach 302-6 after some tight Bangladesh bowling contained much of the innings.

While Bangladesh rarely appeared likely to win in reply, it produced a determined innings at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in its first World Cup quarterfinal. Tamim Iqbal timed four boundaries in a run-a-ball 25 before being caught behind off Yadav (4-31). Fellow opener Imran Kayes was run out off the next ball for 5 and Bangladesh didn’t recover momentum.
