Instead, they succumbed to a limp defeat that left them with three wins from nine matches in the tournament.

I don't remember the last time an exit from the World Cup hurt this bad.

Banners reading "Justice for Kashmir" and "India stop genocide and free Kashmir" were flown over Headingley during India's World Cup clash with Sri Lanka on Saturday, reported the AFP. The match-ups will look like this: Australia vs New Zealand and India vs England. The awful NRR - a result of the collapse against the Windies - came back to haunt the Men in Green when they needed to leapfrog New Zealand into the top four, but it was too late by then.

Opener David Warner racked up another half-century and was the big hope for his side after allrounder Marcus Stoinis was run out for 22 then Glenn Maxwell quickly followed, both to brilliant work by South Africa's wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.

During his knock, Rohit also became the highest scorer in the group stages of the World Cup with 647 runs, beating the records of Matthew Hayden and Sachin Tendulkar.

"I'm so happy with performance and taking six wickets is incredible", said Shaheen.


Man-of-the-match Sharma reached his milestone with a boundary off Kasun Rajitha to pass the mark set by Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara, who scored four hundreds at the 2015 tournament.

Babar Azam prostrates after his match-winning century against New Zealand. But he has achieved so much in this World Cup alone - his first ever - to be proud of already. "I think it is just having a bit of time after this World Cup for everyone to go their separate ways and just sit and think what needs to be done".

They know that if they finish top they play New Zealand again there on Tuesday and as a team they can settle in Manchester, they can get their kit in the dressing room and they're potentially going to have two games on the same pitch in the space of four or five days.

Rahul registered his first century of the tournament but was caught behind shortly before the end of the game off veteran paceman Lasith Malinga - playing his final World Cup match - after hitting 11 fours and one six.

Head Coach Mickey Arthur will head to South Africa and will come back to Lahore after 10 days, as revealed by the sources.

Mashrafe's side lost by 94 runs against Pakistan at Lord's on Friday in a disappointing conclusion to their World Cup campaign. He's the second fastest India bowler to 100 wickets, in 57 innings, one more than the rested Mohammed Shami.
