India set 192 to beat South Africa in Champs Trophy showdown

Fortunately for Kohli, India were able to feast on a South Africa team bereft of confidence after a lacklustre midweek loss to Pakistan.

To what should be grabbing the nationwide attention, the South African-Ind faceoff, contrary to it happened, the recent quarrel between the captain Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble has dominated the headlines.From South Africa, Faf du Plessis is going to give ideal hit to Indian Cricket team.

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.

Captain AB de Villiers, on 16, perished trying to pinch a quick single and David Miller (one) was dismissed in farcical circumstances with both batsmen stranded at the same end to leave South Africa struggling at 142 for four.

Kohli shared his thoughts on the dominance of Asian teams in the ongoing tournament saying, "Maybe because of how much limited-overs cricket we play, I think the players are getting more experienced in hard situations, Maybe some of the teams have really surprised the opposition with the way they have batted and bowled in certain situations".

In the last race in Canada , which Hamilton went on to win, the British driver drew level with his idol Ayrton Senna on 65 poles. Vettel's only one away from five so if I get to five he could easily equal that, and then I've got to get six.

Yuvraj Singh supported Kohli on his way to an unbeaten 76 as India comfortably picked off the target with eight wickets and twelve overs to spare.

Kohli's side had to win their final Group B fixture at The Oval to avoid an embarrassing exit and they rose to the challenge with a ruthless display and defeated the Proteas by eight wickets to storm into the semi-finals of the ongoing event.

It is a must-win game for both India and Africa to stay in the tournament.

They also had AB De Villiers, the most unsafe batsman in the world, when in form. "We seen some good scoring here, upto our batters to communicate really well to understand what is a good score", he said.

"I must be very honest with you".

They then chose to sail their boat home slowly, rather than continue racing, and went down 2-1 in the best-of-nine series. The boat began to straighten and there went the skipper, sliding off the back beam and into the sound.

South Africa captain AB de Villiers, on the other hand, said that although they too would have opted to bowl first, they are looking forward to post a good total on the scoreboard.

"Not a lot of people believe that but I think that (winning a tournament) is not that far away", the 33-year-old said.

Chasing 192, India lost the wicket of Rohit Sharma (12 off 20) early as the right-handed opener was caught behind as he attempted to go for a big shot off Morne Morkel's bowling.

The victory means India are likely to face Bangladesh in a mouthwatering semi-final at Birmingham on Thursday. We thought the wicket was really good to bat on.
