7. Bangladesh beat India, 2007
In analyzing India's chances in the World Cup, the experts were already looking forward to the Super Eight. The team's entry into the second stage was taken for granted as they were in a group that included Bangladesh and Bermuda.
However, Bangladesh had other ideas and a stunning victory not only ensured for them a place in the Super Eight but also meant that India were in danger of being eliminated at the preliminary stage itself.
It was their batting - star-studded but strangely without sparkle this time around - that let them down. Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Robin Uthappa and skipper Rahul Dravid all fell in a heap leaving India tottering at 72 for four.
Sourav Ganguly (66) and Yuvraj Singh (47) retrieved the innings with a fifth-wicket partnership of 85 runs but the run rate was painfully slow and with the late order not offering any resistance - MS Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh and Ajit Agarkar were all out without scoring - India's 191 all out in 49.3 overs meant that the bowling would have to come up with something special.
Bangladesh sensing their chance batted sensibly. Tamim Iqbal still three days short of his 18th birthday and playing only his fifth ODI, hit seven fours and two sixes in a typically belligerent knock of 51.
The clincher for Bangaldesh was the fourth-wicket partnership of 84 runs between Mushfiqar Rahim (56 not out) and Shakib Al Hasan (53) and Bangladeshâs shock victory was heralded with five wickets and 1.3 overs to spare.
A week later India went down to Sri Lanka and bowed out of the competition at the first stage itself.
