And it happened at Wankhede...
India vs Bangladesh
India played their first match against Bangladesh. The memories of 2007 World Cup were fresh and the Indians were determined to thrash The Tigers. Bangladesh skipper won the toss and chose to field first. Virender Sehwag cleared his intentions by scoring a boundary of the first ball of the World Cup. He played in his usual style and scored 175 runs which was his best ODI score then. Virat Kohli, who had been included in the team in place of Suresh Raina also didn’t disappoint and went on to score his maiden World Cup ton. With two centuries from Sehwag and Kohli (100), India scored a mammoth total of 370 runs.
Tamim Iqbal (70) once again led the attack for his side but failed to score a century which was required to meet India’s huge total. The Tigers tried all they could, but managed to score just 283 runs and fell short of the total.
Result: India won by 87 runs
Man of the Match: Virender Sehwag (175 runs)
