India secured their place at the semifinals of cricket World Cup 2019 with a 28-run victory over Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Tuesday, ending Bangladesh’s slim chance of going through the knockout phase.
Throughout the match, netizens on Twitter kept the mini-blog site updated with tweets about the match.
Fans of cricket continued posting even after the match ended, expressing their opinions on how the game wrapped up.
Here is how Twitter reacted:
Despite the loss, Tigers did not fail to win the hearts of many cricket fans across the world.
Ben Jones, Cricket analytics for CricViz, tweeted: The way Mustafizur's wrist moves on slower balls, on the slo-mo replays, is one of the best things in cricket at the moment. It's like his arm turns into water. #CWC19
Cricket journalist Anand Vasu also posted on Twitter: Soumya Sarkar played a dreamy cover drive just minutes ago. A colleague in the press box remarked that he is always great to watch, but gives it away too often after getting 25-30. Precisely what happened. Chasing such a wide ball. #INDvBAN #CWC19
Bangladesh were all out by 286 runs with two overs to spare - with Shakib Al Hasan acting as the main resistance by scoring 66 runs, including 6 fours, off just 74 balls.
