Umesh-Yadav-World_Cup

Umesh Yadav picked up four wickets as India stormed into the semifinals of the World Cup

A score in excess of 300 has never been chased at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Realizing that, Tamim Iqbal got Bangladesh off to a flier. Mohammed Shami found himself at the receiving end as the gritty left hander smashed him for three consecutive boundaries. However, Iqbal’s aggression eventually proved to be his undoing. A marginally slower delivery from Umesh Yadav took the edge off Iqbal’s bat. In spite of some confusion at first on the validity of the catch, Tamim Iqbal was on his way to the dressing room.

The following ball, Imrul Kayes followed suit. A brilliant piece of fielding from Ravindra Jadeja ensured that Kayes failed to make his ground at the non striker’s end. Bangladesh had thrown away a spirited start and were stuttering at 33/2.

The Mohammed Shami show

Mohammed Shami has been India’s best seamer in the World Cup thus far. The short delivery has been the most effective delivery in Shami’s repertoire. Therefore, Mohammed Shami did what he does best. His short pitched bowling, especially his accurate and well directed bouncers created a massive problem for Soumya Sarkar and Mahmudullah.

Mahmudullah (21) fell into the Mohammed Shami “bouncer trap” as Shikhar Dhawan pulled off a spectacular catch at fine leg.There was a little controversy about this dismissal as it was not clear whether Dhawan had avoided the boundary rope but the influential Bangladeshi batsman had to take the long walk back to his pavilion. Soumya Sarkar (29) too misread the short ball and edged it to the keeper. MS Dhoni pulling off a brilliant catch by diving to his left.

Sabbir Rahman and Nasir Hossain put up stern resistance

The fall of these two wickets triggered a collapse in the Bangladeshi ranks as Shakib al Hassan (10) and Mushfiqur Rahim (27) threw their wickets away cheaply. The score stood at 139/6 when Sabbir Rahman and Nassir Hossain were at  the crease. The duo began stroking the ball into gaps to earn themselves important ones and twos. It seemed evident that they were indeed playing for pride as the target and run rate were nowhere in sight.

Following a brief but eventful resistance, Hossain (35) lost his wicket to the guile and craft of Ravindra Jadeja. The fall of Sabbir Rahman (30) meant that the match was well and truly done and dusted. The Bangladeshis ultimately folded up for a miserly 193.

Summary

Umesh Yadav was the pick of the bowlers as he ended with figures of 4/31 in 10 overs. Credit must be given to Mohammed Shami and Mohit Sharma for supporting Yadav in a winning cause. Rohit Sharma was adjudged the man of the match (an obvious decision!).India now await the winner of tomorrow’s fixture between Pakistan and Australia, for a clash in the semi final.
