India will take on Bangladesh in the second quarter final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 at Melbourne on Thursday, March 19. India were by far the best side of their pool, and are the only team other than New Zealand to win each of their games in the group stage. Bangladesh managed to overcome England and made it to the quarter final for the first time in World Cup history. ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: POINTS TABLE

However, West Indies gave India a scare after that, fighting hard to defend a small total, though MS Dhoni masterminded India’s four-wicket win in the end. Ireland batted well against India in the next game, but another century from Shikhar Dhawan helped India win by eight wickets. Brendan Taylor then went on to celebrate his final ODI by scoring a wonderful 138, but Suresh Raina crashed his party as India completed a tricky chase to win by six wickets.

Bangladesh started their World Cup campaign in excellent fashion, thrashing Afghanistan by 105 runs in their first match before their second game against Australia was washed out. That proved to be a blessing in disguise as they got a crucial point from the game. They were then out-done by Sri Lanka by 92 runs before easing past Scotland to win by six wickets despite Kyle Coetzer’s superb 156. Their next match was the all-important contest against England. Mahmudullah became the first Bangladesh batsman to score a World Cup hundred, as the Bangla Tigers completed a famous win by 15 runs. Though they were defeated by New Zealand by three wickets in the next game, it was a close contest and Bangladesh would be confident of taking on the mighty Indians in the quarter final.
