Virat Kohli plays captain's knock in India's massive win over South Africa

25 Juin, 2017, 13:20 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The Indians raised their game and increased the intensity when it was required the most.

India had to win to avoid elimination after slumping to a shock loss against Sri Lanka, a spluttering performance that prompted Kohli to let his team know where they were going wrong.

AB De Villiers, the world's top-ranked one-day batsman who scored only 20 runs in three innings in the tournament, is focused on the 2019 World Cup.

Getting those runs on the benign Oval pitch was never going to be hard, nor were India in the mood to mess it up despite losing Rohit Sharma early.

"I can't pinpoint any negatives", Virat Kohli said.

South Africa once again suffered a shock exit in an ICC tournament when they lost to defending champions India in a must-win game at the Champions Trophy.

India join England and Bangladesh in the semi-finals, with the remaining place in the last four going to the victor of Monday's Group B clash between Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

India put in an all-round shift today to seal their place in the semi-finals against Bangladesh.

It was not rosy for India all the way.

Earlier, the Men in Blue came out with a brilliant performance, both with the ball and in the field, to bowl out South Africa for a paltry 191 in 44.3 overs. Despite Amla's departure, the Proteas continued to consolidate and at 140 for two they seemed set for a big score.

You could nearly feel it - when AB De Villiers called wrong and lost the toss, with India putting South Africa into bat - the panic setting in.

"That was probably the best game we have played so far and the fielders backed up our bowlers", he said. It was then left to Yuvraj to finish the match in style hoisting JP Duminy for a six.

"At the global level, the margin for error is always minimal, and South Africa did not play the big moments well".

The much-awaited contest, which was a virtual quarter-final, failed to live up to expectations as India put in a dominant display while South Africa will have to go back to the drawing board after failing in another ICC tournament. Its innings, built slowly by openers Quinton de Kock (53) and Hashim Amla (35), unraveled with consecutive run outs in near-perfect conditions in south London, and skipper AB de Villiers was the first culprit.

About the game against Bangladesh, he said, "We played in Birmingham, we like that pitch, suits our game". On the other hand, you just don't see that from de Villiers. "All they did was to try and hit the top of off-stump with a nice tight fielding unit around, squeezing a lot of dot balls around us, not allowing any soft deliveries around the off stump".
