India booked their place in the World Cup semi-finals as they claimed a hard-fought 28-run victory over Bangladesh at Edgbaston.

An opening stand of 180 between Rohit Sharma (104) and KL Rahul (77) laid the foundations for India’s 314-9 and Bangladesh came up short as they were all out for 286 in reply to end their own hopes of reaching the last four.

It was Rohit’s fourth century of the tournament, although he took full advantage of being dropped by Tamim Iqbal on nine, as he equalled the record set by Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, who scored four tons at the 2015 World Cup.
