India roared into the semi-finals of the World Twenty20 with a eight-wicket demolition of hosts Bangladesh in a Super-10 group two match in Dhaka on Friday.

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra claimed 3-26 as India restricted Bangladesh to 138-7 and then surpassed the modest target with nine deliveries to spare at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium.

Rohit Sharma made 56 and Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 57, sharing a 100-run stand for the second wicket after Shikhar Dhawan had been dismissed for one in the third over.

India's third successive win in the Super-10s assured them a place in the semi-finals even before their last league match against Australia on Sunday.

Australia, who lost to the West Indies earlier on Friday, are virtually out of the race after two defeats.

Barring any major upsets in the last two round of matches, Pakistan and the West Indies will battle for the second semi-final spot from the group.
