Not just Rohit Sharma but Virat Kohli, the captain of the team also thanked her personally for coming and watching the match. Further, he went on to add saying that Sharma is playing on a different planet, which is tough to match.

Set 315 to win, Bangladesh fell just short, mustering 286 all out as India secured their spot in the semifinals, and eliminated their rivals.

"Because we know he executes and the batsmen will have to do something very special to get runs against him". I bless the team always. He's (Rohit) the best One-day player around and we are so delighted to see him.

"Yes, Rohit scored a century and was deservedly player of the match, but everyone chipped in and played their part".

Yuvraj Singh, who was adjudged the Man of the Tournament for his all-round perfromance when India won the World Cup in 2011 was one among the many to have congratulated "Hitman" on Twitter.

10 - With his hundred against Bangladesh, Rohit Sharma became the 10th batsman to score 500 or more runs in a World Cup tournament.


"Whenever I practice in the nets, I practice each and every situation be it with the new ball or bet it with the old ball". The industrialist found the lady in all cheers for team India as he tuned in to watch the match on TV.

Jasprit Bumrah took four wickets and fellow paceman Hardik Pandya three, including the prize scalp of Shakib.

Bangladesh can certainly walk away from the tournament with their heads held high, having beaten South Africa, West Indies and Afghanistan along the way. "This will keep us in a good frame of mind going into the semi-finals", Kohli said.

India will face Sri Lanka next on Saturday and members of the Twitterati are hoping to again see the superfan in the stands.

Even though they are yet to meet Dhoni personally, to watch him so closely has made it worth the effort to travel from Spain's Canary Islands, off West Africa."We have travelled nearly 3,860 km to watch Dhoni live and trust me, it has been worth the effort".
