Good attempt on getting 283 runs, that would win the game against the likes of West Indies, Ireland and Canada. Bangladesh will deffinately make it to the the next round.

Indian team's perfomance showed why are they one of the contenders for the title..... They were thoroughly professional, ruthless and got their strategies for batting order and powerplay correct..... They have a lengthy brak of 8 days before facing England... which should be one of the group decider games.... Looking forward to it

I was watching from London. Great fightback, but every time our batsmen tried to speed things up, they lost a wicket so they didn't have much luck. Looking forward to more of our games. If we bat like this, we can go through to the next round but our bowling needs to improve.

I think I'm the only one who can say this: I WAS THERE!! Great atmosphere in Dhaka, and even though we conceded 370 runs, the fightback was pretty impressive, specially before the 1st wicket!
