The trophy is shared between India and Sri Lanka. 2013. India! Hello
and welcome to London and the Oval, where we have a blockbuster of a
game as the reigning champions, India, play the world number one
team, South Africa. For both sides, this is basically a quarterfinal as
only the winners of the match will go through to the semifinals. The
conundrum is due to Pakistan and Sri Lanka who have brought the
tournament into life in recent days by beating South Africa and India in
recent days. It's a winner takes all scenario. The final game of the
group is between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Cardiff tomorrow with the
winners of that one likely to face England. Yesterday, the World Cup
winners were sent packing as England got one over their oldest and
fiercest rivals, Australia, and they top the group with Bangladesh the
surprise runners-up. One change each in this game with Phehlukwayo coming
in. Ravi Ashwin is coming in for his first appearance, coming in for your
dad, and there was a huge roar and sheer when Ashwin's name was read
out. Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bowl, Quinta do the
chasing after being stunned by the record Sri Lanka chase. The weather
has disrupted games in Birmingham, but it is glorious in south London.
Let's join the action. It will only be one. The first over
is completed. 3-0. That will be runs. Is it off the bat, or leg
byes? It is off the bat. I imagine some of these headlines
might have been loved today, the Aussies sent packing.
Confusion again, Jadeja at backward point. Not many better in the world
than him. He gets across the ground quickly, and as good a throwing arm
as you will see in the modern game. Nice finding of the gap from Hashim
Amla. Beautiful shot from Amla. A little bit short but a bit of wit.
He was on the back foot, standing tall, on top of the bounce. He hits
it late. He hits it square. Over to the boundary for four runs. He has
looked good so far, Hashim Amla. Very experienced player at the top
of the order. They need a big score from him today. We saw a nice
close-up of the delivery before he ran in. Looking to nip it back, and
that is exactly what it did. Attacking Hashim Amla. Perfect
length. Maybe just a few inches too short, but it has gone over the top
of the stumps, and it might have clattered into the bails. The guys
in the dressing room need to think we are not doing too badly, but it's
not as easy as you think, and it maybe gives them a different
perspective. In the dressing room, you will be thinking, its
boundaries, but as a bowler captain... They should not be too
many and is in the pants in the South African dressing room. Just
let it go. -- ants in the pants. Could that be a boundary? A very
important moment for South Africa. Just relieves a bit of pressure.
How important is that? Just trying to break the shackles. You can see
the short boundaries, Ashwin is bowling. He will be at this end,
right through the ten overs. It's not a very big boundary. Always
risky when you take on Virat Kohli. He felt like he had the man, and if
he had hit... Wasn't to be. Not the best way to get to your 50. Must've
been out by miles. Just takes the pressure off the scoreboard. Virat
Kohli just misses. Very quick, flicks it, but misses the stumps.
Just have a look at him. Oh, another half chance. Caught and bowled goes
down, so it is all happening. Two runs from the over. 50 without loss.
Pressure on both sides. Run out on the previous delivery, and then a
straight forward caught and bowled. Heating it on the up, and it should
have been taken at this level. Not a very difficult catch. Big match, big
situation, pressure on everyone. The move has begun. Amla, making that
big movement on the off-side. And your was caught by surprise --
handier. You were wondering when it was going to come, and he walks into
the channel and he picks it up leg side onto the shore boundary. An
obvious line from Pandya, into the ring, and you cannot afford to give
the width, and Amla worked it out. South Africa need more of that.
Starting to happen. The second time he has made the move before the ball
has been delivered, and he has ten runs. Those two shots he has played,
that is what we are talking about, a bit more adventure from South
Africa. India lacked pace, and Kumar has bowled beautifully, but there
was not much swing and he hit back of a lens. I want to see people use
their feet and change the channel, and we see it now from Amla. People
will remember that until now the Champions Trophy has been a
tournament full of surprises. The weather has been an issue, but today
the sun is out, and in the last week we have had some very surprising
results, unexpected results. That is going to be four runs. Well played
by Hashim Amla. Mid-off his inside the circle. -- es inside. That is
the noise, and that is the wicket. And what a wicket that is. Am I
trying to cut -- Amla. And the Sea of blue has erupted. Ashwin has
changed his pace through the years, and he was looking to play square of
the wicket. It skims off the surface, and an outstanding catch
from MS Dhoni. There was some deflection there.
Amla has gone for 35. 76-1. Well played. A short boundary, and a
good space to pick up another four runs. That is the attacking option
for De Kock against Ashwin. No one on the leg side boundary, and Ashwin
allowed him to play through there. Just a dab. That would have been a
better option, but they will complete the second. Direct would
have been close there. Very fast between the wickets and another
example of the intensity that has been brought into the South African
game. I feel that a direct hit would have been out. It is a big game, a
knockout game for both. Have a look at the crowd. It is blue everywhere.
Through the on-side, punched it. We'll come back for a couple. That
is a short boundary outside Virat Kohli. He gives 100% on the field
all the time, Virat Kohli. Great ambassador.
That is 54 Quinton de Kock. His 14th in international cricket, to add to
the 12 centuries. A slightly slower pace, but he's still there. And the
worry for India at this moment, every time he gets 50, he gets 100
against India. Talking about the first spell from
India, very good. 50 not out in 68 deliveries. Oh, yes. Not this. Slog
sweep, missing the line completely. -- not this time. Quinton de Kock is
dismissed, and India picking up the second wicket at a very important
time. Excellent line from Jadeja. With the field he has set, the
sweeper has to be deep, so he cannot give the width bowling at the
stumps. It is a good comeback for him so far from the Sri Lanka match.
This time Quinton de Kock has been dismissed for 50 against India.
116-2. The captain is in. Short side of the ground, but timed
well enough by de Villiers. Is this a portent of things to come today?
He does not look out of form and though. A juicy half volley,
hitching it up, Pandya. It races away to the boundary. Looking for
the wicket. Looking for the swing, early on.
On the back foot once again. We'll have to run and see if de Villiers
makes it or not. -- he will have to The Indians do not look very
confident, except for Virat Kohli. Neither does AB de Villiers. That is
going to be very, very... And he has gone. Very good work by MS Dhoni.
Look how quickly he gets the gloves onto the stumps. And a big, big
wicket for India. Needed to be using the ball speed to get home, and he
wasn't. He goes for 16. 140-3. David Miller. Replacing AB de Villiers.
An outside edge, and it is another runout coming here. That's another
one! Chaos in the middle of the over here -- Oval here. The South African
batsman stranded at the same end. All sorts of confusion as to who
will be given out. One of them will be on their way.
The noise of this crowd, and communication is the key, being able
to watch each other. South Africa, getting themselves back in the game.
There were two massive moments. It is the batsmen on the far side. Look
at that. They have not crossed. He made his ground before Miller, so it
will be Miller on his way. And that is confirmation that David Miller is
on his way, run out. South Africa now 142- far. -- - four. De Villiers
was looking good today, but run out, a mix-up between him and Miller.
Those are two massive wickets for India.
What is going on out in the middle of the Oval? Another very, very
tight thing, and Kohli was in very quickly. The throw was wide. Lucky
for South Africa once again. LOUD APPEALS
It has been giving out. Duminy wants to look at the review straightaway.
I think there was an inside edge. Duminy straightaway going upstairs.
He looks confident. OK, have you got a square on shot,
please? We will have a look at Hot Spot. Just roll that back. It does
look like there is a little mark on the glove. OK. I am happy with that.
I will go back to the field. I have a little Hot Spot, and also there is
a spike on track edge, against the glove. I will ask you to reverse
your decision. I will tell you when you're on screen. Your on-screen.
There it is, confirmation. The decision is overturned.
He has bowled him. Du Plessis looking to force through the on side
but a thick inside edge onto his middle stump. A big breakthrough
again. A really tough five overs for du Plessis. In valve in two runouts
and now he is out himself. -- involved in two. Is -- South Africa
are all over the place. He jobs it on. South Africa under a big
pressure. We have seen the end of du Plessis 436. 157-5.
That is touched by gone to the stumps. They are going upstairs
again for another run out. It cannot be. I cannot take any more. Morris
looks pretty comfortable. You can sit back down again. Stanning around
to the South African changing rooms, wanting to have a chat with the guys
in there. Firmly through the of Jadeja. He has made his ground. It
was a good bit of work by the bowler. That is good. The bat is on
the ground. My decision is not out. That was tucked into fine leg. Just
one. That puts pressure on the bowlers. They know they cannot land
the ball there and thereabouts and build up pressure. We have not seen
that much today from the South African batting line up. That is
another wicket. It has gone straight up. It should be taken. Taken
comfortably. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a safe capture. It is all turning pear
shaped for South Africa at the Oval. You get one of your best bowlers
back. We have talked about trends, with South Africa looking to push
hard. The runouts have been a factor but they are losing wickets in the
middle. India have been good. The tone was set in the power play by
their bowlers. It is being followed through. Morris goes for four.
167-6. To close. The length was too full. Again, there was room. That is
why he went for it. A welcome four runs. Just 12 overs. South Africa
have managed to find the boundary rope. They have not been at their
best. Did that hit the stumps? That is the question Paul Reiffel is
asking himself. The answer is no. MS Dhoni is in the background. He has
to look back towards him for the final sanction. Dhoni is not too
excited. He has gone for it. Just Snicko overs to go after this. Maybe
a practical review as well. I am not kidding the umpire. Is he on air?
The bat does not appear to be involved. Can we check, please?
There is no Hot Spot. Keep rolling it through. There is no bat gone
mad. If we could go to ball tracking, please. The impact in
line, hitting the stumps. CHEERING
Reverse your decision. You are on-screen. Not the first eruption we
have seen from the Indian fans. They cite on the giant screen, every
moment the noise was getting louder. Another wicket has fallen. It is
Bhuvneshwar Kumar. That is the combination that is working for
India. 178-7. It has carried to Dhoni. That is another wicket.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets his first. Once again, it is time for the
Indian fans to rise and applaud. An impressive bowling effort from the
Indians. Everything that Virat Kohli has done, changing his bowlers
around, it has worked on almost every occasion. Whenever he requires
a wicket, he changes Bumrah, or Jadeja, or Kumar. It has worked.
Rabada goes. Yet another left-hander. Ashwin will fancy his
chances if Bhuvneshwar Kumar does not get a wicket before that from
the other end. India are on a roll. South Africa have lost six wickets
with 25 balls. Kamara is looking to hit the deck a lot because there is
no swing. That is movement of the pitch to get the outside edge.
Another wicket has fallen. Outside edge and a comfortable catch for the
Indian caption -- for the Indian captain. Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets his
second. He is on a hat-trick. Again, the skipper and the ball, getting
the slip and, as you would do for a lower order batsmen. Just the angle.
Safely held. Morkel goes without scoring. 184-9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is
on a hat-trick. It has been a fantastic offer, to outside edges,
two catches taken. The possibility of picking up a hat-trick against
the number 11 for South Africa, Imran Tahir. Phil and straight.
Tahir goes hard at it. The thick edge to third man. Showing no
caution. He has decided to have a go. He is now thinking about the
second. This could be run out. The Masefield. It allows him to get
back. Or does it? Chaos in the middle. Duminy smashed it away to
leg side. He wanted to be back for the second. Imran Tahir turned him
down, but because of the misfield by Virat Kohli, he decided to get on
his way. It looks like he is struggling. Yes, indeed, a third run
out in the innings for South Africa. Their innings comes to a premature
close after 44.2 overs. With 190 on the board. A brilliant effort by
India. The crowd are on their feet. They have appreciated the last hour
and a half. It is unreal from South Africa. I have never seen a top
international side go about their job as they did in the 40 overs. You
talk about being under pressure. I do not know what it is, but they
never looked like a top-class international side. India need 192
for the victory in 50 overs. Great work from the Indian bowling, the
fielding. Virat Kohli will be happy. The last 98 balls for South Africa,
the last eight wickets. They ended up with a total of 191. South
Africa's reputation for failing in big knockout game is one they have
never liked, but they have done very little to dispel that tag with this
display. An abject batting performance that started promisingly
before a series of farcical runouts left them in big trouble. Quinton de
Kock was the top scorer with 53. An impressive performance in the field
for India, the bowlers hitting the red areas and the fielders showing
energy and commitment. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah were the
pick of the bowlers with two wickets apiece. With the firepower at their
disposal, the total should be a breeze for India two overall. But
stranger things have happened. Rohit Sharma Ansari Magnusson are opening
the batting for India. The target is just 192. A good line to start with
four Rabada. A maiden over. It could be tight. He would have been gone.
He would have been gone. David Miller, the fielder. The first
opportunity for South Africa. It was missed. Again, another run out
opportunity today. We have seen plenty of them. Maybe the bug was
transferred at lunch to the Indian team. Well fielded. They will have
to do that quite often. There is that strong culture with every day
now, but more so South Africa, or over the years, of excellent
fielders. It started from the era of Jonty Rhodes. It has become a
standard that South Africa are very proud of. That is just a touch, it
is just a push from Rohit Sharma. We talk about the languid nature of his
play. What a touch. The bat just comes down like a barn door onto the
ball. He punches pass the ball. Good balance from Rohit Sharma. It is a
quick outfield at the Oval. It just rolls along to the advertising
boards. Into the boundary rope. Dispatched. He plays the short ball
very well. It has gone for six, even though he was dismissed in the last
match with it. 12-0. It is a short boundary there as
well, but with no one out in that area. Freedom to play.
Lovely wrist work. The second six of the innings. What a shot from
Dhawan. Great timing, almost on the top of
the bounce. Through the ball. It sailed into the crowd. Morkel,
straight to Dhawan. He has been in wonderful form in this tournament.
It shows they are. -- it shows. He did not read it. He overran it.
Andile Phehlukwayo. Well, Andile Phehlukwayo. He has got
him. What was that, what was the intent from Sharma, out of the blue?
Morkel strikes, and de Kock holds on. Morkel has been a shining light
for South Africa in this tournament. Sharma giving himself room, and
Morkel following him. The bounce, and the edge. It was a good catch
from de Kock. It is very unusual from Rohit Sharma, based on the way
the tournament has gone. He has gone for 12. 23-1. It is a great
delivery. The batsman was genuinely beaten. 24-1.
Well done. That is what he really feeds off, Virat Kohli, running
between the wicket. That is why he needs a partner who understands his
instincts. That is pushed hard on the ground. This will be de
Villiers. Just as I was saying he was wide. Shikhar Dhawan makes a
great strike down the ground and punches into the ball.
Even AB de Villiers could not get to it. He reacted quickly when the ball
was punched. Lettuce see whether the field change has made any difference
-- let us. Morne Morkel is asking where he should have made it. He has
got that through. The speed of the pitch will help. Those pitches will
help. It's raced across the outfield. A good attempt from David
Miller, chasing all the way to the fence. Scooped it back, but it has
trickled across the line. Ambitious from dar one. -- Dow one. Just
avoided him to his right, through the gap, across the wickets. Dhawan
is now on 20. Again, they will get a couple of runs here. And Virat Kohli
will come back for a third, but it could have been slightly dangerous.
Dhawan hesitant with the third run, and that is why he wants to have a
chat. David Miller is the man that point. -- at point. Made good ground
to his right, a bit of a dive. Just missed it. He is normally a good
fielder in that part of the ground. Oh, Morne Morkel, eventually when he
got close to the ball it was maybe a metre away from him. The 50 has come
up for India. A good effort, in the end. Morne Morkel at fine leg,
making ground quite quickly in off the road. Carried a long way. Well
done. It's gone for six. That is unexpected. Straight, but there were
no fielders. Over the rope and it shows the class of Virat Kohli. It
shouldn't be unexpected, because he has been tied down, and this is
while we did not see the South African do this. We did not see them
shimmy down the wicket and tried to put pressure back on the Indian
bowlers. A couple of steps down, and that is class batting from Kohli.
Beautiful. Very, very good. Not much pace, not much bounce, just hits it
down the ground. That is when Virat Kohli blaze at his best. Searching
for some movement -- plays at his best. On the angle, just sliding
down the leg side. Good balance. He has to get further outside the
off-stump. Oh, was that a half chance and did it carry? It looks
like a valiant effort. That would have been ideal for South Africa. It
beats the inside edge. It is that same area, just outside the
off-stump. Just a bit too deep, Hashim Amla. A difficult catch.
Always difficult in the slips when it is so low. Nicely clipped. This
field. A dropped catch, and a mis-field, and that will allow Virat
Kohli to get back for three runs. That could have brought about a
breakthrough, but far from it. It's not going to be easy. That is a
boundary. It also brings up the 75. He knew exactly where the fielder
was. Even Quinton de Kock... Short, this time. He has bolded. Over the
square leg boundary. You cannot keep bolding with five fielders on the
off-side to a left-hander. Easy pickings with the turn, and Dhawan
is a good player of spin. That is a drag down from the last over. This
time it is back foot. He knows exactly where the fielders are on
that boundary. He does not want to get in front of the square, he just
wants to help it on its way. Through the leg side. That is too straight
from Morne Morkel. The timing is magnificent. That has raced away
over square to the mid-wicket boundary.
There is the gap again. Virat Kohli. He is getting into his groove now.
It is looking wider and wider, his bat, out there. At the last minute
he pushes his hands at the ball and create all the power. Finds the gap
at extra cover and it races away to that one boundary.
Just as solid punch, and fast hands into the ball. That is 50! The 19th
50 of his one-day career, and is third in this tournament. -- he's
third. With that boundary, Dhawan becomes
the leading scorer in the tournament, 53 coming of just 61
balls. Pops it over mid-on. Just a couple of bouncers. All too easy for
Dhawan. It's the format and the opposition as well, top of the list,
and we saw this in the morning, Kane Williamson was on top, and now he
has jumped up to the top of the tree.
That is a shot you do not see everyone -- very often, from Dhawan.
Short on the leg side, but he gets ball runs and it also brings up the
100 run partnership. That is going to be four runs, off
the glove. Another boundary for Dhawan. The required rate keeps
coming down. I felt South Africa missed a trick by not bringing to
hear into bowl. There was a chance to bring Latin. -- Tahir to bowl.
There was a period where in this South African performance it went
into disarray, run out after run out. That is where India took
control of the game. That is 50 four Virat Kohli.
His second in the tournament after the 80 runs against Pakistan.
Consistency of performance and intensity in the play.
Another slog on the leg side. The juggernaut rolls on and on.
Everyone is looking forward to the super Sunday, and it hasn't lived up
to it, particularly because India have been so dominant. South Africa
have not shown up today. Brilliant to watch. On the up. It's
interesting watching this from Virat Kohli. It is perceived as a weakness
as the innings goes on, but that actually becomes his strong point.
It is taken safely. Just talking about whether he could get there,
and he is dismissed by Imran Tahir. Well, he was trying to get there,
and that is the reason he played the shot. The face opening at the last
minute. Good work Yuvraj Singh replaces
Dhawan. This time it is over mid-on and he was waiting for the ball to
be tossed up. With a straight bat, brilliant. He
is a better player of spin bowling. And he whacks it through mid-wicket,
and it's one of the most difficult shots in cricket, and we all love
it. That is close. That is an appeal. A very good delivery,
spinning into the left-hander. OK, looks like an inside edge. Can
we look at the inside Hot Spot, please?
Yes, there is an edge there, but can we look at the other edge, please?
OK, yes. I'm happy to go back to the field. I've got inside edge, Paul,
and I'm happy there. You are on screen now, please stay with your
original decision. He will come back for the second,
very easily. Long boundaries on that side. The mid-on is up. MS Dhoni up
to the crease, and he might leave in finishing it off with a six. This
time through the middle, through the boundary and it goes a long way into
the stands. India finish off in style, and India qualified for the
semifinals. They will be played against Bangladesh on the 15th. A
win with 12 overs to spare. A complete performance from the men
in blue. They bowled well, they fielded brilliantly. And when it was
time for the bat, they finished off in style. A very good performance
from the captain. He was under pressure when he came into this
game, losing against Sri Lanka a few days ago. He has responded well. The
big swing of Yuvraj Singh takes them home, into the stands and on their
way to the semifinal. India win by eight wickets and in
some style. Before the start of the tournament, this game was expected
to decide who would finish first and second in the grip. No South Africa,
the number one team in the world, find themselves out, and 191 was
never going to be enough. Dhawan and Kohli lived in total control. They
put on 128 for the second wicket. The victory never felt then died.
Dhawan leads the Golden bat award with a tally of 271 runs in the
tournament. South Africa were live to regret a bad innings with the
bat. Tahir and Morkel picked up on wicket each. Tahir was brought on
late. India were never under pressure. The intensity was really
good and it paid dividends later on. It was a good toss to win. The
wicket did not change much. We thought it was a decent wicket to
bat on. The bowlers bowled well, kept it tight. The fielders backed
it up. We had a complete performance in the field. When the opportunities
come, you have to grab them. We did that today and it helped us. We had
a strong batting line up. Good fielding, an important wicket to get
your mate run out? Always good to get him out early. They can really
damage the opposition. He can really hurt you in the middle overs. It was
a good breakthrough for us. All in all, we wanted to step up in the
field and that is what the guys provided within intensity. It was
good to see. It is not really the loss, one team has got to lose, it
is more the manner of the defeat for South Africa? Definitely. Not an
ideal way to finish are tournament. It is very disappointing. Credit to
them in the first 20 overs. They did not miss the mark in the field
often. They put a lot of pressure is going at 3.5, four and over with the
bat. The runouts cost us dearly today. In the tournament you guys
have not reached the heights. Were you expecting to get it right today?
We never got going. It is very, very sad. We're hoping to play better --
we were hoping to play a better game today. More to get excited about,
but unfortunately we came unstuck against the better team today. On
that surface, were you looking to be conservative? That was not the plan.
They bowled well and did not miss their mark. Great intensity in the
field. We could not get to away as often as we wanted to. That is not
the reason we lost. We were outplayed. We gave away a few silly
runs in the field and with the bat in hand, there were soft dismissals,
which will cost you. India go through to the semifinals where they
are likely to play Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Thursday. They top
Group B and they are superior run rate suggest they will stay there
regardless of the result of the moral's match in Cardiff were
something extraordinary would need to happen for them to be overtaken.
Join us for another winner takes all match tomorrow where Pakistan take
on Sri Lanka to decide who will go through alongside India. From a very
sunny Oval in south London, it is goodbye.
