India have beaten Bangladesh by 28 runs at Edgbaston to book their place in the semi-finals of the World Cup.

After winning the toss and electing to bat first, India posted 314 for 9 with opening batsman Rohit Sharma smashing his third century of the tournament.

A brilliant five-wicket haul from fast man Mustafizur Rahman helped Bangladesh battle back after the two-time champions got off to a flying start.

Bangladesh's were then bowled out for 286 with Jasprit Bumrah taking four wickets.

The win keeps India at second place in the table, one point behind Australia.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh's final four aspirations have come to end as they remain in seventh place in the standings with just one match remaining.
