The trophy is shared between India and Sri Lanka. 2013. India! Hello

:00:11.:00:25.

and welcome to London and the Oval, where we have a blockbuster of a

:00:26.:00:28.

game as the reigning champions, India, play the world number one

:00:29.:00:34.

team, South Africa. For both sides, this is basically a quarterfinal as

:00:35.:00:37.

only the winners of the match will go through to the semifinals. The

:00:38.:00:43.

conundrum is due to Pakistan and Sri Lanka who have brought the

:00:44.:00:45.

tournament into life in recent days by beating South Africa and India in

:00:46.:00:53.

recent days. It's a winner takes all scenario. The final game of the

:00:54.:00:57.

group is between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Cardiff tomorrow with the

:00:58.:01:01.

winners of that one likely to face England. Yesterday, the World Cup

:01:02.:01:05.

winners were sent packing as England got one over their oldest and

:01:06.:01:10.

fiercest rivals, Australia, and they top the group with Bangladesh the

:01:11.:01:13.

surprise runners-up. One change each in this game with Phehlukwayo coming

:01:14.:01:24.

in. Ravi Ashwin is coming in for his first appearance, coming in for your

:01:25.:01:28.

dad, and there was a huge roar and sheer when Ashwin's name was read

:01:29.:01:37.

out. Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bowl, Quinta do the

:01:38.:01:40.

chasing after being stunned by the record Sri Lanka chase. The weather

:01:41.:01:46.

has disrupted games in Birmingham, but it is glorious in south London.

:01:47.:01:49.

Let's join the action. It will only be one. The first over

:01:50.:02:08.

is completed. 3-0. That will be runs. Is it off the bat, or leg

:02:09.:02:14.

byes? It is off the bat. I imagine some of these headlines

:02:15.:02:29.

might have been loved today, the Aussies sent packing.

:02:30.:02:34.

Confusion again, Jadeja at backward point. Not many better in the world

:02:35.:02:43.

than him. He gets across the ground quickly, and as good a throwing arm

:02:44.:02:46.

as you will see in the modern game. Nice finding of the gap from Hashim

:02:47.:03:00.

Amla. Beautiful shot from Amla. A little bit short but a bit of wit.

:03:01.:03:06.

He was on the back foot, standing tall, on top of the bounce. He hits

:03:07.:03:14.

it late. He hits it square. Over to the boundary for four runs. He has

:03:15.:03:19.

looked good so far, Hashim Amla. Very experienced player at the top

:03:20.:03:22.

of the order. They need a big score from him today. We saw a nice

:03:23.:03:35.

close-up of the delivery before he ran in. Looking to nip it back, and

:03:36.:03:40.

that is exactly what it did. Attacking Hashim Amla. Perfect

:03:41.:03:47.

length. Maybe just a few inches too short, but it has gone over the top

:03:48.:03:51.

of the stumps, and it might have clattered into the bails. The guys

:03:52.:04:01.

in the dressing room need to think we are not doing too badly, but it's

:04:02.:04:05.

not as easy as you think, and it maybe gives them a different

:04:06.:04:09.

perspective. In the dressing room, you will be thinking, its

:04:10.:04:12.

boundaries, but as a bowler captain... They should not be too

:04:13.:04:19.

many and is in the pants in the South African dressing room. Just

:04:20.:04:31.

let it go. -- ants in the pants. Could that be a boundary? A very

:04:32.:04:36.

important moment for South Africa. Just relieves a bit of pressure.

:04:37.:04:47.

How important is that? Just trying to break the shackles. You can see

:04:48.:04:54.

the short boundaries, Ashwin is bowling. He will be at this end,

:04:55.:04:59.

right through the ten overs. It's not a very big boundary. Always

:05:00.:05:09.

risky when you take on Virat Kohli. He felt like he had the man, and if

:05:10.:05:18.

he had hit... Wasn't to be. Not the best way to get to your 50. Must've

:05:19.:05:22.

been out by miles. Just takes the pressure off the scoreboard. Virat

:05:23.:05:30.

Kohli just misses. Very quick, flicks it, but misses the stumps.

:05:31.:05:39.

Just have a look at him. Oh, another half chance. Caught and bowled goes

:05:40.:05:44.

down, so it is all happening. Two runs from the over. 50 without loss.

:05:45.:05:52.

Pressure on both sides. Run out on the previous delivery, and then a

:05:53.:05:55.

straight forward caught and bowled. Heating it on the up, and it should

:05:56.:06:00.

have been taken at this level. Not a very difficult catch. Big match, big

:06:01.:06:07.

situation, pressure on everyone. The move has begun. Amla, making that

:06:08.:06:18.

big movement on the off-side. And your was caught by surprise --

:06:19.:06:25.

handier. You were wondering when it was going to come, and he walks into

:06:26.:06:29.

the channel and he picks it up leg side onto the shore boundary. An

:06:30.:06:35.

obvious line from Pandya, into the ring, and you cannot afford to give

:06:36.:06:42.

the width, and Amla worked it out. South Africa need more of that.

:06:43.:06:47.

Starting to happen. The second time he has made the move before the ball

:06:48.:06:50.

has been delivered, and he has ten runs. Those two shots he has played,

:06:51.:06:56.

that is what we are talking about, a bit more adventure from South

:06:57.:07:03.

Africa. India lacked pace, and Kumar has bowled beautifully, but there

:07:04.:07:07.

was not much swing and he hit back of a lens. I want to see people use

:07:08.:07:11.

their feet and change the channel, and we see it now from Amla. People

:07:12.:07:17.

will remember that until now the Champions Trophy has been a

:07:18.:07:21.

tournament full of surprises. The weather has been an issue, but today

:07:22.:07:29.

the sun is out, and in the last week we have had some very surprising

:07:30.:07:40.

results, unexpected results. That is going to be four runs. Well played

:07:41.:07:47.

by Hashim Amla. Mid-off his inside the circle. -- es inside. That is

:07:48.:07:57.

the noise, and that is the wicket. And what a wicket that is. Am I

:07:58.:08:05.

trying to cut -- Amla. And the Sea of blue has erupted. Ashwin has

:08:06.:08:11.

changed his pace through the years, and he was looking to play square of

:08:12.:08:16.

the wicket. It skims off the surface, and an outstanding catch

:08:17.:08:17.

from MS Dhoni. There was some deflection there.

:08:18.:08:26.

Amla has gone for 35. 76-1. Well played. A short boundary, and a

:08:27.:08:43.

good space to pick up another four runs. That is the attacking option

:08:44.:08:49.

for De Kock against Ashwin. No one on the leg side boundary, and Ashwin

:08:50.:08:53.

allowed him to play through there. Just a dab. That would have been a

:08:54.:09:13.

better option, but they will complete the second. Direct would

:09:14.:09:20.

have been close there. Very fast between the wickets and another

:09:21.:09:23.

example of the intensity that has been brought into the South African

:09:24.:09:27.

game. I feel that a direct hit would have been out. It is a big game, a

:09:28.:09:33.

knockout game for both. Have a look at the crowd. It is blue everywhere.

:09:34.:09:40.

Through the on-side, punched it. We'll come back for a couple. That

:09:41.:09:45.

is a short boundary outside Virat Kohli. He gives 100% on the field

:09:46.:09:49.

all the time, Virat Kohli. Great ambassador.

:09:50.:10:02.

That is 54 Quinton de Kock. His 14th in international cricket, to add to

:10:03.:10:13.

the 12 centuries. A slightly slower pace, but he's still there. And the

:10:14.:10:19.

worry for India at this moment, every time he gets 50, he gets 100

:10:20.:10:21.

against India. Talking about the first spell from

:10:22.:10:35.

India, very good. 50 not out in 68 deliveries. Oh, yes. Not this. Slog

:10:36.:10:42.

sweep, missing the line completely. -- not this time. Quinton de Kock is

:10:43.:10:48.

dismissed, and India picking up the second wicket at a very important

:10:49.:10:56.

time. Excellent line from Jadeja. With the field he has set, the

:10:57.:11:01.

sweeper has to be deep, so he cannot give the width bowling at the

:11:02.:11:06.

stumps. It is a good comeback for him so far from the Sri Lanka match.

:11:07.:11:11.

This time Quinton de Kock has been dismissed for 50 against India.

:11:12.:11:16.

116-2. The captain is in. Short side of the ground, but timed

:11:17.:11:37.

well enough by de Villiers. Is this a portent of things to come today?

:11:38.:11:41.

He does not look out of form and though. A juicy half volley,

:11:42.:11:50.

hitching it up, Pandya. It races away to the boundary. Looking for

:11:51.:11:55.

the wicket. Looking for the swing, early on.

:11:56.:12:01.

On the back foot once again. We'll have to run and see if de Villiers

:12:02.:12:06.

makes it or not. -- he will have to The Indians do not look very

:12:07.:12:23.

confident, except for Virat Kohli. Neither does AB de Villiers. That is

:12:24.:12:29.

going to be very, very... And he has gone. Very good work by MS Dhoni.

:12:30.:12:35.

Look how quickly he gets the gloves onto the stumps. And a big, big

:12:36.:12:45.

wicket for India. Needed to be using the ball speed to get home, and he

:12:46.:12:52.

wasn't. He goes for 16. 140-3. David Miller. Replacing AB de Villiers.

:12:53.:13:01.

An outside edge, and it is another runout coming here. That's another

:13:02.:13:12.

one! Chaos in the middle of the over here -- Oval here. The South African

:13:13.:13:18.

batsman stranded at the same end. All sorts of confusion as to who

:13:19.:13:22.

will be given out. One of them will be on their way.

:13:23.:13:28.

The noise of this crowd, and communication is the key, being able

:13:29.:13:34.

to watch each other. South Africa, getting themselves back in the game.

:13:35.:13:43.

There were two massive moments. It is the batsmen on the far side. Look

:13:44.:13:49.

at that. They have not crossed. He made his ground before Miller, so it

:13:50.:13:56.

will be Miller on his way. And that is confirmation that David Miller is

:13:57.:14:08.

on his way, run out. South Africa now 142- far. -- - four. De Villiers

:14:09.:14:15.

was looking good today, but run out, a mix-up between him and Miller.

:14:16.:14:21.

Those are two massive wickets for India.

:14:22.:14:31.

What is going on out in the middle of the Oval? Another very, very

:14:32.:14:41.

tight thing, and Kohli was in very quickly. The throw was wide. Lucky

:14:42.:14:44.

for South Africa once again. LOUD APPEALS

:14:45.:14:58.

It has been giving out. Duminy wants to look at the review straightaway.

:14:59.:15:02.

I think there was an inside edge. Duminy straightaway going upstairs.

:15:03.:15:05.

He looks confident. OK, have you got a square on shot,

:15:06.:15:21.

please? We will have a look at Hot Spot. Just roll that back. It does

:15:22.:15:31.

look like there is a little mark on the glove. OK. I am happy with that.

:15:32.:15:42.

I will go back to the field. I have a little Hot Spot, and also there is

:15:43.:15:47.

a spike on track edge, against the glove. I will ask you to reverse

:15:48.:15:52.

your decision. I will tell you when you're on screen. Your on-screen.

:15:53.:15:58.

There it is, confirmation. The decision is overturned.

:15:59.:16:04.

He has bowled him. Du Plessis looking to force through the on side

:16:05.:16:15.

but a thick inside edge onto his middle stump. A big breakthrough

:16:16.:16:21.

again. A really tough five overs for du Plessis. In valve in two runouts

:16:22.:16:26.

and now he is out himself. -- involved in two. Is -- South Africa

:16:27.:16:35.

are all over the place. He jobs it on. South Africa under a big

:16:36.:16:41.

pressure. We have seen the end of du Plessis 436. 157-5.

:16:42.:16:50.

That is touched by gone to the stumps. They are going upstairs

:16:51.:16:58.

again for another run out. It cannot be. I cannot take any more. Morris

:16:59.:17:06.

looks pretty comfortable. You can sit back down again. Stanning around

:17:07.:17:12.

to the South African changing rooms, wanting to have a chat with the guys

:17:13.:17:16.

in there. Firmly through the of Jadeja. He has made his ground. It

:17:17.:17:21.

was a good bit of work by the bowler. That is good. The bat is on

:17:22.:17:27.

the ground. My decision is not out. That was tucked into fine leg. Just

:17:28.:17:41.

one. That puts pressure on the bowlers. They know they cannot land

:17:42.:17:46.

the ball there and thereabouts and build up pressure. We have not seen

:17:47.:17:50.

that much today from the South African batting line up. That is

:17:51.:17:57.

another wicket. It has gone straight up. It should be taken. Taken

:17:58.:18:02.

comfortably. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a safe capture. It is all turning pear

:18:03.:18:05.

shaped for South Africa at the Oval. You get one of your best bowlers

:18:06.:18:23.

back. We have talked about trends, with South Africa looking to push

:18:24.:18:27.

hard. The runouts have been a factor but they are losing wickets in the

:18:28.:18:32.

middle. India have been good. The tone was set in the power play by

:18:33.:18:37.

their bowlers. It is being followed through. Morris goes for four.

:18:38.:18:48.

167-6. To close. The length was too full. Again, there was room. That is

:18:49.:18:55.

why he went for it. A welcome four runs. Just 12 overs. South Africa

:18:56.:19:00.

have managed to find the boundary rope. They have not been at their

:19:01.:19:09.

best. Did that hit the stumps? That is the question Paul Reiffel is

:19:10.:19:14.

asking himself. The answer is no. MS Dhoni is in the background. He has

:19:15.:19:18.

to look back towards him for the final sanction. Dhoni is not too

:19:19.:19:27.

excited. He has gone for it. Just Snicko overs to go after this. Maybe

:19:28.:19:38.

a practical review as well. I am not kidding the umpire. Is he on air?

:19:39.:19:44.

The bat does not appear to be involved. Can we check, please?

:19:45.:20:00.

There is no Hot Spot. Keep rolling it through. There is no bat gone

:20:01.:20:08.

mad. If we could go to ball tracking, please. The impact in

:20:09.:20:14.

line, hitting the stumps. CHEERING

:20:15.:20:22.

Reverse your decision. You are on-screen. Not the first eruption we

:20:23.:20:34.

have seen from the Indian fans. They cite on the giant screen, every

:20:35.:20:38.

moment the noise was getting louder. Another wicket has fallen. It is

:20:39.:20:43.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar. That is the combination that is working for

:20:44.:20:54.

India. 178-7. It has carried to Dhoni. That is another wicket.

:20:55.:21:01.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets his first. Once again, it is time for the

:21:02.:21:08.

Indian fans to rise and applaud. An impressive bowling effort from the

:21:09.:21:15.

Indians. Everything that Virat Kohli has done, changing his bowlers

:21:16.:21:18.

around, it has worked on almost every occasion. Whenever he requires

:21:19.:21:30.

a wicket, he changes Bumrah, or Jadeja, or Kumar. It has worked.

:21:31.:21:36.

Rabada goes. Yet another left-hander. Ashwin will fancy his

:21:37.:21:45.

chances if Bhuvneshwar Kumar does not get a wicket before that from

:21:46.:21:51.

the other end. India are on a roll. South Africa have lost six wickets

:21:52.:21:58.

with 25 balls. Kamara is looking to hit the deck a lot because there is

:21:59.:22:04.

no swing. That is movement of the pitch to get the outside edge.

:22:05.:22:10.

Another wicket has fallen. Outside edge and a comfortable catch for the

:22:11.:22:15.

Indian caption -- for the Indian captain. Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets his

:22:16.:22:23.

second. He is on a hat-trick. Again, the skipper and the ball, getting

:22:24.:22:28.

the slip and, as you would do for a lower order batsmen. Just the angle.

:22:29.:22:38.

Safely held. Morkel goes without scoring. 184-9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is

:22:39.:22:45.

on a hat-trick. It has been a fantastic offer, to outside edges,

:22:46.:22:50.

two catches taken. The possibility of picking up a hat-trick against

:22:51.:22:54.

the number 11 for South Africa, Imran Tahir. Phil and straight.

:22:55.:23:05.

Tahir goes hard at it. The thick edge to third man. Showing no

:23:06.:23:10.

caution. He has decided to have a go. He is now thinking about the

:23:11.:23:20.

second. This could be run out. The Masefield. It allows him to get

:23:21.:23:26.

back. Or does it? Chaos in the middle. Duminy smashed it away to

:23:27.:23:33.

leg side. He wanted to be back for the second. Imran Tahir turned him

:23:34.:23:38.

down, but because of the misfield by Virat Kohli, he decided to get on

:23:39.:23:44.

his way. It looks like he is struggling. Yes, indeed, a third run

:23:45.:23:49.

out in the innings for South Africa. Their innings comes to a premature

:23:50.:23:56.

close after 44.2 overs. With 190 on the board. A brilliant effort by

:23:57.:24:01.

India. The crowd are on their feet. They have appreciated the last hour

:24:02.:24:05.

and a half. It is unreal from South Africa. I have never seen a top

:24:06.:24:11.

international side go about their job as they did in the 40 overs. You

:24:12.:24:19.

talk about being under pressure. I do not know what it is, but they

:24:20.:24:22.

never looked like a top-class international side. India need 192

:24:23.:24:30.

for the victory in 50 overs. Great work from the Indian bowling, the

:24:31.:24:39.

fielding. Virat Kohli will be happy. The last 98 balls for South Africa,

:24:40.:24:43.

the last eight wickets. They ended up with a total of 191. South

:24:44.:24:48.

Africa's reputation for failing in big knockout game is one they have

:24:49.:24:53.

never liked, but they have done very little to dispel that tag with this

:24:54.:24:58.

display. An abject batting performance that started promisingly

:24:59.:25:01.

before a series of farcical runouts left them in big trouble. Quinton de

:25:02.:25:07.

Kock was the top scorer with 53. An impressive performance in the field

:25:08.:25:11.

for India, the bowlers hitting the red areas and the fielders showing

:25:12.:25:16.

energy and commitment. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah were the

:25:17.:25:20.

pick of the bowlers with two wickets apiece. With the firepower at their

:25:21.:25:24.

disposal, the total should be a breeze for India two overall. But

:25:25.:25:33.

stranger things have happened. Rohit Sharma Ansari Magnusson are opening

:25:34.:25:38.

the batting for India. The target is just 192. A good line to start with

:25:39.:25:46.

four Rabada. A maiden over. It could be tight. He would have been gone.

:25:47.:25:52.

He would have been gone. David Miller, the fielder. The first

:25:53.:26:00.

opportunity for South Africa. It was missed. Again, another run out

:26:01.:26:03.

opportunity today. We have seen plenty of them. Maybe the bug was

:26:04.:26:09.

transferred at lunch to the Indian team. Well fielded. They will have

:26:10.:26:20.

to do that quite often. There is that strong culture with every day

:26:21.:26:25.

now, but more so South Africa, or over the years, of excellent

:26:26.:26:30.

fielders. It started from the era of Jonty Rhodes. It has become a

:26:31.:26:36.

standard that South Africa are very proud of. That is just a touch, it

:26:37.:26:47.

is just a push from Rohit Sharma. We talk about the languid nature of his

:26:48.:26:55.

play. What a touch. The bat just comes down like a barn door onto the

:26:56.:27:00.

ball. He punches pass the ball. Good balance from Rohit Sharma. It is a

:27:01.:27:06.

quick outfield at the Oval. It just rolls along to the advertising

:27:07.:27:07.

boards. Into the boundary rope. Dispatched. He plays the short ball

:27:08.:27:24.

very well. It has gone for six, even though he was dismissed in the last

:27:25.:27:26.

match with it. 12-0. It is a short boundary there as

:27:27.:27:42.

well, but with no one out in that area. Freedom to play.

:27:43.:27:49.

Lovely wrist work. The second six of the innings. What a shot from

:27:50.:27:56.

Dhawan. Great timing, almost on the top of

:27:57.:28:10.

the bounce. Through the ball. It sailed into the crowd. Morkel,

:28:11.:28:17.

straight to Dhawan. He has been in wonderful form in this tournament.

:28:18.:28:25.

It shows they are. -- it shows. He did not read it. He overran it.

:28:26.:28:35.

Andile Phehlukwayo. Well, Andile Phehlukwayo. He has got

:28:36.:29:01.

him. What was that, what was the intent from Sharma, out of the blue?

:29:02.:29:06.

Morkel strikes, and de Kock holds on. Morkel has been a shining light

:29:07.:29:12.

for South Africa in this tournament. Sharma giving himself room, and

:29:13.:29:21.

Morkel following him. The bounce, and the edge. It was a good catch

:29:22.:29:28.

from de Kock. It is very unusual from Rohit Sharma, based on the way

:29:29.:29:34.

the tournament has gone. He has gone for 12. 23-1. It is a great

:29:35.:29:43.

delivery. The batsman was genuinely beaten. 24-1.

:29:44.:29:49.

Well done. That is what he really feeds off, Virat Kohli, running

:29:50.:29:58.

between the wicket. That is why he needs a partner who understands his

:29:59.:30:06.

instincts. That is pushed hard on the ground. This will be de

:30:07.:30:09.

Villiers. Just as I was saying he was wide. Shikhar Dhawan makes a

:30:10.:30:17.

great strike down the ground and punches into the ball.

:30:18.:30:26.

Even AB de Villiers could not get to it. He reacted quickly when the ball

:30:27.:30:34.

was punched. Lettuce see whether the field change has made any difference

:30:35.:30:40.

-- let us. Morne Morkel is asking where he should have made it. He has

:30:41.:30:52.

got that through. The speed of the pitch will help. Those pitches will

:30:53.:30:58.

help. It's raced across the outfield. A good attempt from David

:30:59.:31:03.

Miller, chasing all the way to the fence. Scooped it back, but it has

:31:04.:31:09.

trickled across the line. Ambitious from dar one. -- Dow one. Just

:31:10.:31:18.

avoided him to his right, through the gap, across the wickets. Dhawan

:31:19.:31:30.

is now on 20. Again, they will get a couple of runs here. And Virat Kohli

:31:31.:31:41.

will come back for a third, but it could have been slightly dangerous.

:31:42.:31:45.

Dhawan hesitant with the third run, and that is why he wants to have a

:31:46.:31:49.

chat. David Miller is the man that point. -- at point. Made good ground

:31:50.:31:58.

to his right, a bit of a dive. Just missed it. He is normally a good

:31:59.:32:02.

fielder in that part of the ground. Oh, Morne Morkel, eventually when he

:32:03.:32:16.

got close to the ball it was maybe a metre away from him. The 50 has come

:32:17.:32:22.

up for India. A good effort, in the end. Morne Morkel at fine leg,

:32:23.:32:27.

making ground quite quickly in off the road. Carried a long way. Well

:32:28.:32:42.

done. It's gone for six. That is unexpected. Straight, but there were

:32:43.:32:49.

no fielders. Over the rope and it shows the class of Virat Kohli. It

:32:50.:32:53.

shouldn't be unexpected, because he has been tied down, and this is

:32:54.:32:58.

while we did not see the South African do this. We did not see them

:32:59.:33:01.

shimmy down the wicket and tried to put pressure back on the Indian

:33:02.:33:08.

bowlers. A couple of steps down, and that is class batting from Kohli.

:33:09.:33:17.

Beautiful. Very, very good. Not much pace, not much bounce, just hits it

:33:18.:33:21.

down the ground. That is when Virat Kohli blaze at his best. Searching

:33:22.:33:26.

for some movement -- plays at his best. On the angle, just sliding

:33:27.:33:38.

down the leg side. Good balance. He has to get further outside the

:33:39.:33:47.

off-stump. Oh, was that a half chance and did it carry? It looks

:33:48.:33:54.

like a valiant effort. That would have been ideal for South Africa. It

:33:55.:33:59.

beats the inside edge. It is that same area, just outside the

:34:00.:34:05.

off-stump. Just a bit too deep, Hashim Amla. A difficult catch.

:34:06.:34:10.

Always difficult in the slips when it is so low. Nicely clipped. This

:34:11.:34:20.

field. A dropped catch, and a mis-field, and that will allow Virat

:34:21.:34:25.

Kohli to get back for three runs. That could have brought about a

:34:26.:34:26.

breakthrough, but far from it. It's not going to be easy. That is a

:34:27.:34:59.

boundary. It also brings up the 75. He knew exactly where the fielder

:35:00.:35:09.

was. Even Quinton de Kock... Short, this time. He has bolded. Over the

:35:10.:35:16.

square leg boundary. You cannot keep bolding with five fielders on the

:35:17.:35:19.

off-side to a left-hander. Easy pickings with the turn, and Dhawan

:35:20.:35:25.

is a good player of spin. That is a drag down from the last over. This

:35:26.:35:32.

time it is back foot. He knows exactly where the fielders are on

:35:33.:35:35.

that boundary. He does not want to get in front of the square, he just

:35:36.:35:42.

wants to help it on its way. Through the leg side. That is too straight

:35:43.:35:48.

from Morne Morkel. The timing is magnificent. That has raced away

:35:49.:35:51.

over square to the mid-wicket boundary.

:35:52.:35:59.

There is the gap again. Virat Kohli. He is getting into his groove now.

:36:00.:36:24.

It is looking wider and wider, his bat, out there. At the last minute

:36:25.:36:31.

he pushes his hands at the ball and create all the power. Finds the gap

:36:32.:36:35.

at extra cover and it races away to that one boundary.

:36:36.:36:48.

Just as solid punch, and fast hands into the ball. That is 50! The 19th

:36:49.:37:05.

50 of his one-day career, and is third in this tournament. -- he's

:37:06.:37:08.

third. With that boundary, Dhawan becomes

:37:09.:37:19.

the leading scorer in the tournament, 53 coming of just 61

:37:20.:37:24.

balls. Pops it over mid-on. Just a couple of bouncers. All too easy for

:37:25.:37:33.

Dhawan. It's the format and the opposition as well, top of the list,

:37:34.:37:37.

and we saw this in the morning, Kane Williamson was on top, and now he

:37:38.:37:44.

has jumped up to the top of the tree.

:37:45.:37:55.

That is a shot you do not see everyone -- very often, from Dhawan.

:37:56.:38:02.

Short on the leg side, but he gets ball runs and it also brings up the

:38:03.:38:05.

100 run partnership. That is going to be four runs, off

:38:06.:38:27.

the glove. Another boundary for Dhawan. The required rate keeps

:38:28.:38:37.

coming down. I felt South Africa missed a trick by not bringing to

:38:38.:38:44.

hear into bowl. There was a chance to bring Latin. -- Tahir to bowl.

:38:45.:38:57.

There was a period where in this South African performance it went

:38:58.:39:00.

into disarray, run out after run out. That is where India took

:39:01.:39:08.

control of the game. That is 50 four Virat Kohli.

:39:09.:39:13.

His second in the tournament after the 80 runs against Pakistan.

:39:14.:39:31.

Consistency of performance and intensity in the play.

:39:32.:39:44.

Another slog on the leg side. The juggernaut rolls on and on.

:39:45.:40:04.

Everyone is looking forward to the super Sunday, and it hasn't lived up

:40:05.:40:14.

to it, particularly because India have been so dominant. South Africa

:40:15.:40:20.

have not shown up today. Brilliant to watch. On the up. It's

:40:21.:40:28.

interesting watching this from Virat Kohli. It is perceived as a weakness

:40:29.:40:35.

as the innings goes on, but that actually becomes his strong point.

:40:36.:40:49.

It is taken safely. Just talking about whether he could get there,

:40:50.:41:11.

and he is dismissed by Imran Tahir. Well, he was trying to get there,

:41:12.:41:15.

and that is the reason he played the shot. The face opening at the last

:41:16.:41:19.

minute. Good work Yuvraj Singh replaces

:41:20.:41:55.

Dhawan. This time it is over mid-on and he was waiting for the ball to

:41:56.:41:56.

be tossed up. With a straight bat, brilliant. He

:41:57.:42:44.

is a better player of spin bowling. And he whacks it through mid-wicket,

:42:45.:42:48.

and it's one of the most difficult shots in cricket, and we all love

:42:49.:42:56.

it. That is close. That is an appeal. A very good delivery,

:42:57.:42:58.

spinning into the left-hander. OK, looks like an inside edge. Can

:42:59.:43:43.

we look at the inside Hot Spot, please?

:43:44.:43:48.

Yes, there is an edge there, but can we look at the other edge, please?

:43:49.:44:01.

OK, yes. I'm happy to go back to the field. I've got inside edge, Paul,

:44:02.:44:12.

and I'm happy there. You are on screen now, please stay with your

:44:13.:44:13.

original decision. He will come back for the second,

:44:14.:44:33.

very easily. Long boundaries on that side. The mid-on is up. MS Dhoni up

:44:34.:44:43.

to the crease, and he might leave in finishing it off with a six. This

:44:44.:44:47.

time through the middle, through the boundary and it goes a long way into

:44:48.:44:52.

the stands. India finish off in style, and India qualified for the

:44:53.:44:58.

semifinals. They will be played against Bangladesh on the 15th. A

:44:59.:45:02.

win with 12 overs to spare. A complete performance from the men

:45:03.:45:13.

in blue. They bowled well, they fielded brilliantly. And when it was

:45:14.:45:19.

time for the bat, they finished off in style. A very good performance

:45:20.:45:23.

from the captain. He was under pressure when he came into this

:45:24.:45:28.

game, losing against Sri Lanka a few days ago. He has responded well. The

:45:29.:45:36.

big swing of Yuvraj Singh takes them home, into the stands and on their

:45:37.:45:40.

way to the semifinal. India win by eight wickets and in

:45:41.:45:45.

some style. Before the start of the tournament, this game was expected

:45:46.:45:49.

to decide who would finish first and second in the grip. No South Africa,

:45:50.:45:52.

the number one team in the world, find themselves out, and 191 was

:45:53.:46:00.

never going to be enough. Dhawan and Kohli lived in total control. They

:46:01.:46:06.

put on 128 for the second wicket. The victory never felt then died.

:46:07.:46:11.

Dhawan leads the Golden bat award with a tally of 271 runs in the

:46:12.:46:16.

tournament. South Africa were live to regret a bad innings with the

:46:17.:46:26.

bat. Tahir and Morkel picked up on wicket each. Tahir was brought on

:46:27.:46:29.

late. India were never under pressure. The intensity was really

:46:30.:46:35.

good and it paid dividends later on. It was a good toss to win. The

:46:36.:46:39.

wicket did not change much. We thought it was a decent wicket to

:46:40.:46:44.

bat on. The bowlers bowled well, kept it tight. The fielders backed

:46:45.:46:50.

it up. We had a complete performance in the field. When the opportunities

:46:51.:46:55.

come, you have to grab them. We did that today and it helped us. We had

:46:56.:47:01.

a strong batting line up. Good fielding, an important wicket to get

:47:02.:47:05.

your mate run out? Always good to get him out early. They can really

:47:06.:47:10.

damage the opposition. He can really hurt you in the middle overs. It was

:47:11.:47:15.

a good breakthrough for us. All in all, we wanted to step up in the

:47:16.:47:19.

field and that is what the guys provided within intensity. It was

:47:20.:47:25.

good to see. It is not really the loss, one team has got to lose, it

:47:26.:47:29.

is more the manner of the defeat for South Africa? Definitely. Not an

:47:30.:47:34.

ideal way to finish are tournament. It is very disappointing. Credit to

:47:35.:47:38.

them in the first 20 overs. They did not miss the mark in the field

:47:39.:47:43.

often. They put a lot of pressure is going at 3.5, four and over with the

:47:44.:47:50.

bat. The runouts cost us dearly today. In the tournament you guys

:47:51.:47:54.

have not reached the heights. Were you expecting to get it right today?

:47:55.:48:00.

We never got going. It is very, very sad. We're hoping to play better --

:48:01.:48:04.

we were hoping to play a better game today. More to get excited about,

:48:05.:48:10.

but unfortunately we came unstuck against the better team today. On

:48:11.:48:15.

that surface, were you looking to be conservative? That was not the plan.

:48:16.:48:19.

They bowled well and did not miss their mark. Great intensity in the

:48:20.:48:23.

field. We could not get to away as often as we wanted to. That is not

:48:24.:48:26.

the reason we lost. We were outplayed. We gave away a few silly

:48:27.:48:32.

runs in the field and with the bat in hand, there were soft dismissals,

:48:33.:48:37.

which will cost you. India go through to the semifinals where they

:48:38.:48:40.

are likely to play Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Thursday. They top

:48:41.:48:47.

Group B and they are superior run rate suggest they will stay there

:48:48.:48:51.

regardless of the result of the moral's match in Cardiff were

:48:52.:48:53.

something extraordinary would need to happen for them to be overtaken.
