This overall 11th consecutive win for team India in world cup matches since the last edition. Meanwhile, the victory at MCG also completed 100 wins for MS Dhoni as a captain, which is most by any Indian. This was seventh successive match of the tournament when Indian bowlers got all ten wickets of the opponents. The interesting point is that Indian bowling was being underestimated by experts before the start of world cup.
In reply, Bangladesh batsman struggled to score up to required run rate and lost early wickets. The tigers were all out at the meager total of 193 as they were nowhere near the target since the start of their innings.Rohit Sharma was declared man of the match for his brilliant century.
Bangladesh bowlers tried hard to restrict the batting power house to a moderate total and they were quite effective until 35th over. India could only manage scoring 155 runs with just 15 overs to go. This was the point when Bangladesh bowlers failed to deliver and consumed too many runs. Raina and Sharma added quick runs right after the start of batting power play and took the game away from opposition.
