India scores 302-6 against Bangladesh


MELBOURNE: Defending champions India made 302 for six against Bangladesh in their World Cup quarter-final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Thursday.

Rohit Sharma made 137 and Suresh Raina 65 as India accelerated after some tight opening overs by Bangladesh.

The huge contingent of Indian supporters in the crowd cheered Rohit as he reached his seventh ODI ton with 10 fours and a six.

But Rohit had a lucky escape on 90 when he holed out and was caught at deep mid-wicket off Rubel Hossain but umpire Ian Gould signalled a no-ball for a waist-high ball despite TV replays indicating it to be a legitimate delivery.

No side has made more than 300 batting second to win a one-day international at the MCG.
