New Delhi:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi today hailed Indian cricket team after it beat Bangladesh to enter the semi-final of World Cup.

“Excellent game, excellent performance! Congrats yet again Team India,” Modi tweeted.His tweet came soon after India beat Bangladesh by 109 runs in a quarter final match played in Melbourne.

Riding on Rohit's spectacular 137 off 126 balls and his rollicking 122-run fourth wicket stand in only 15.5 overs with the belligerent Suresh Raina (65), India were able to post a commendable 302 for six after opting to bat at the MCG.

    
In reply, Bangladesh were never in the contention as India hardly took their foot off the pedal to dismiss their neighbours for a paltry 193 in 45 overs without hardly breaking a sweat. The juggernaut continues to roll on for Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his men who have now recorded their seventh win on the trot in this mega event.
     
India will now meet the winner of the third quarter-final between Australia and Pakistan at Sydney on March 26.
