2011 World Cup: Four years later, in the 2011 World Cup held in the Indian subcontinent, India exacted their revenge by winning a thrilling match against Bangladesh in the group stage. The match witnessed Virender Sehwag’s blistering 175 and young Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 100, which boosted India to a mammoth total of 370/4. Bangladesh fought well but they had no answers against a prominent Indian bowling line-up and got defeated by a margin of 97 runs.
