Holders India have secured their World Cup semi-final spot following a 109-run victory over Bangladesh in Melbourne.

India scored 302-6 in the first innings after winning the toss and electing to bat, and Rohit Sharma responded by hitting 137 from 126 balls.

Bangladesh never looked likely to reach the 303 required for victory and were eventually put out of their misery with five overs to spare.

India will be heavily fancied to retain their title after continuing to dismiss every opposition batsman they have come up against at the tournament.

Pakistan knock Ireland out of Cricket World Cup

Ireland have been knocked out of the cricket World Cup as Pakistan cruised to a seven-wicket win at the Adelaide Oval.

Sarfraz Ahmed's unbeaten 101 condemned the Irish to an early exit despite an impressive showing in Pool B where they won three games. But West Indies' win over the United Arab Emirates gave them a better net run-rate.

Despite William Porterfield's maiden World Cup century, Ireland could only make 237 as they were bowled out in 50 overs and that total failed to trouble the Pakistan batsmen, with Sarfraz and Ahmed Shehzad leading the way with an opening partnership of 120, before Umar Akmal hit the winning runs in the 47th over.

Australia eased past Scotland in the Cricket World Cup with a seven-wicket win in Hobart despite a long rain delay. The win saw the co-hosts finish second in Pool A, behind other co-hosts New Zealand.

Scotland were bowled out for a meagre 130 in just 25.4 overs by the Australia attack with Mitchell Starc (four for 14) the key man for the tournament co-hosts.

Australia made light work of the reply, which was interrupted for an hour and a half by rain, with captain Michael Clarke top-scoring with 47 as they eased to victory in 15.2 overs.

In Pool B, Suresh Raina scored his maiden World Cup century as India cruised to a six-wicket win over Zimbabwe in Auckland.
