Shubman Gill was the star for India with a magnificent 86 as India defeated Bangladesh by 131 runs to set up a mouth-watering semi-final clash against Pakistan on January 30 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.

Prithvi Shaw-led India have been unbeaten in the tournament so far. At one pint of time India looked well set reach to score 300+ with Shubham Gill hitting the ball well. For Bangladesh only Pinak Ghosh top-scored with 43.

Bangladesh bowled well to not let India score freely, but they couldn't convert the pressure created by the lack of runs to wickets, and the Indians took advantage of that.

There was quite a bit of chatter from the Indian fielders in the second dig, with Ishan Porel and Anukul Roy even saying a few things in Bengali to unsettle the batsmen in the opposition camp. Credit for superb bowling goes to Kamlesh Nagarkoti, who got three wickets and Mavi picks 2 for 27 with the new ball. But Gill's dismissal by right-arm offbreak bowler Hasan in the 36th over for a well-made 86 first put the brakes on the Indian scoring rate and then the team lost the last six wickets in less than seven overs for the addition of just 50 runs. In reply, Bangladesh were bundled out for 134 in 42.1 overs. Captain Prithvi Shaw also scored 40 runs.

Qazi Onik was impressive with the ball, picking up 3 for 48 in his ten overs, but it wasn't enough to restrict the strong Indian batting unit. India's spinners - the left-arm trio of Shiva Singh (0/29), Anukul Roy (1/14) and Abhishek (2/11) - kept it tight as Bangladesh found it hard to rotate the strike.
