Great start by Team India! Way to go
Today’s match saw great batting displays by Virendar Sehwag (Nawab of Najafgarh) – a great knock of 175 (14 fours & 5 sixes) and Virat Kohli 100 not out (8 fours & 4 sixes) and an also good bowling display by Munaf Patel (10-0-48-4). Bangladesh did try to put up a good fightback and ended on 283/9. It is easy to put the blame squarely on Sreesanth (5-0-53-0) but it would be wiser not to forget his aggressive bowling against South Africa in the recent series.
India put up a mammoth total of 370 for 4 that was out of reach but Imrul Kayes (34), Tamim Iqbal (70) and Shakib (55) put up a tough fight.
This match has been a very good practice match for both teams and Bangladesh will go into the rest of the matches with greater confidence and as for India a win in their first world cup match sets the tone for the rest of the matches. Go India! Now take on England with the same vengeance!
