After an unexpected upset yesterday by Pakistan where against all the odds they demolished the tournament favourites England with ease, there was a lot of optimism among Bangladeshi fans ahead of their semi finals against India of putting on a good show and managing another upset.
But a professional performance from the men in blue put all that optimism to rest, as India riding high on Rohit Sharma’s and Kohli’s masterclass in batting absolutely thrashed Bangladesh into pieces.
While it was the one most one sided knockout matches one can ever see, the brilliant performance from team India left twitter spell bound, and a prospect of playing against the arch rivals Pakistan made twitter buzz with lot of excitement. Here is all the action from the twitteratis:
India's batting flexed its muscles. It got no reply from Bangladesh on a tough surface to bowl on.

Jaw dropping performance by India. Kohli unlucky not to get century, but victory was always more important

India versus Pakistan in an ICC final. The most seismic moment in cricket since Sarfraz Nawaz decided to rub the old ball on his trousers.
