ICC Champions Trophy: Congratulations Team India, best wishes for final vs Pakistan, says Sachin Tendulkar

first_imgIndia cantered to a nine-wicket win over Bangladesh in a lopsided second semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy at the Edgbaston Stadium here on Thursday, setting up a clash with arch-rivals Pakistan in the final.Chasing 265 to win after electing to field first, the defending champions did not flinch for one moment as Rohit Sharma scored his 11th career ton (123 not out) and captain Virat Kohli notched up his 42nd fifty (96 not out) to stitch up an unbeaten 178-run partnership for the second wicket. India won the match with 59 balls to spare.While Sharma’s innings was laced with 15 fours and one six, Kohli smashed 13 boundaries.Kohli, in the process, became the fastest to reach 8,000 runs in ODIs in just 175 innings.This is how twitter reacted to India’s authoritative victory over Bangladesh:So proud. Congratulations team India. Great performance by @imVkohli, @ImRo45 & @SDhawan25! My best wishes for the finals against Pakistan.- sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) June 15, 2017Well tried Pote.
