Isn't it great?
On a related note, Patel was seen cheering enthusiastically throughout the match. She blew a yellow vuvuzela like a child on every boundary scored. She also kept waving the tricolour.
Patel, who is said to keep a close track of the team, wishes to be present when India lifts the World Cup at the iconic Lord's on July 14.
The Men in Blue road on a brilliant 104 from Rohit Sharma -- his fourth century in this edition of the showpiece event -- to post 314/9 in their 50 overs. Defending 314, in-form Shakib al Hasan was the only real threat for the Indian bowlers as the Bangladesh batsmen came out pretty subdued in their chase. And once Hardik Pandya sent back Shakib for 66 in the 34th over, it was advantage India.
Speaking at the end of the game, Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza said: "That was the match we had to win. We couldn't make it but there was some good performance by Mustafizur. One of them had to go on and score 80-90. A bit of luck could have gone in our favour. The tournament has been nice, exceptional performance by Shakib and Mushy (Mushfiqur) batted really well right through. We will try to play our best in the last game. They were here supporting us today as well."
