India demolished the South African challenge in what was a virtual quarter-final and booked their semi-final berth as South Africa again ‘choked’ in yet another ICC Tournament at a crucial stage. India gave a strong bowling performance as they bundled the Proteas for a score of 191.
India came on to chase with their openers in great form and the batsman ensured that they chased the target with many overs to spare. Shikhar Dhawan scored 78 while the skipper Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 76* as Yuvraj Singh finished the game with a biggie over the mid-wicket boundary.
Twitter was all praise for the Indian team as they entered their 5th Champions Trophy semi-final with a big win. Here are some reactions:-

So India through to the semi-final. Bangladesh await. Utterly one-sided, I’m afraid

You know what I like about this India? That they kill the tail. That they are cool-headed and confident. Legacy of Dada, Dhoni. #indvsa
