India secured a place in the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup with a 28-run win over Bangladesh at Birmingham last night.

Opting to bat, the Men in Blue posted 314 for 9, riding on Rohit Sharma's 92-ball 104, his 26th ODI ton. He became the first Indian and second after Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara to score four centuries in a World Cup.

Rohit also became the leading run-scorer in the ongoing tournament. The Indian opener has, so far, amassed 544 runs.

KL Rahul's 77, Rishab Pant's 48 and MS Dhoni's 35 also helped India lay the foundation of a 300 plus total.

Later, with the ball, India bundled out Bangladesh for 286 in 48 overs sending them out of the World Cup. Paceman Jasprit Bumrah bagged four wickets guiding Team India to join Australia in the last-four.

Rohit was adjudged man of the match.

Today hosts England will face New Zealand at Chester-le-Street.
