A Look At The Centurions In World Cups In India Vs Ban Clashes

The Indian team will be locking horns with Bangladesh at the  Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on October 19 in their next World Cup 2023 fixture. As of now, India and Bangladesh have played against each other four times in World Cups ever since they met for the first time back in 2007 at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

The Bangla Tigers did seal a win in their first game after  Mashrafe Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal, and Mushfiqur Rahim helped them to a memorable win. But after that, India have outplayed them three times, in 2011, 2015 and 2019.

Bangladesh have not seen any centurion from their team in World Cup games against India. Tamim Iqbal currently holds the record for the highest individual score after he smashed 70 back in 2011 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. India on the other hand has had three batters, who have collected hundreds.  Let’s take a look at the World Cup centuries for the Indian team against Bangladesh in World Cups.

Virender Sehwag in 2011

During the 2011 World Cup, Virender Sehwag ripped off Bangladesh’s bowling attack as he ended up playing a knock of 175 runs off 140 balls with 14 fours and five sixes. Sehwag’s innings powered India to a massive total of 370 runs for the loss of four wickets.

Virat Kohli in 2011

India’s batting pillar Virat Kohli also scripted history after hitting 100 runs off 83 balls with eight fours and two sixes. He also forged a huge  203-run partnership with Sehwag for the fourth wicket.

Rohit Sharma in 2015, 2019

The Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has collected 241 runs from two matches with an average of 120.50. Rohit made a hundred for the first time against Bangladesh back in 2015. He ended up getting 137 runs off 126 balls with 14 fours and three sixes in the quarterfinal at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. Again in 2019, the Mumbai-based batter gathered a century, smashing 104 runs off 92 balls at Edgbaston in Birmingham.
