Rohit-HundredRohit Sharma scored the 7th hundred of his career, as India posted 302/6 in 50 overs against Bangladesh in the second quarterfinal at the MCG. Suresh Raina scored 65 off 57 balls and added 122 runs for the fourth wicket along with Rohit.

Earlier, India won the toss and elected to bat first. Dhawan was the first man to go when the score was 75. However, Virat Kohli did not last long and was out for 3. Rahane too scored just 19. India were 115/3 in 28 overs at one stage. However, Rohit and Raina consolidated the innings.

India scored 147 runs in the last 15 overs, thanks to the duo. Rohit was lucky to survive at 91 when umpire Ian Gould made a historic blunder by calling a no-ball when he was caught. The ball was well below the waist level. Rohit made 137 off 126 balls with 14 boundaries and 3 sixes. Ravindra Jadeja remained unbeaten on 23. For Bangladesh, Taskin Ahmed took three wickets.
