"I can not pin point any negatives from today honestly".
AB de Villiers is widely regarded as the modern-day great of the gentlemen's game who is more than capable of turning the match around single-handedly on his day. Their fielding was also quite outstanding, but the ease with which South Africa crumbled made the Proteas look like a team in the Associate ranks, not one that is ranked No.1 in the world by the ICC. But just as South Africa was starting to accelerate Ashwin came in and took the important wicket of Amla which broke the partnership.
Fortunately for Kohli, India were able to feast on a South Africa team bereft of confidence after a lacklustre midweek loss to Pakistan.
In-form opener Dhawan was the key figure with 78 from 83 balls, including 12 fours, while captain Kohli weighed in with a typically elegant 76. "It was a good toss to win as chasing has been relatively easier". "Credit to them in those first 15-20 overs, they put the pressure on us, we normally don't bat that way". "The fielders backed our bowlers", Kohli said. Clearly, Virat Kohli's cup of riches is overflowing, and the captain had no qualms in saying "this is our most complete game yet" after the victory over South Africa on Sunday. Two run-outs of skipper AB de Villiers (16) and David Miller (1) within the space of six deliveries triggered the slide from which they could never recover.
"Du Plessis, who'd patted the ball towards point and set off with a call of "yes" admitted later that the misjudgement of the run in de Villiers's case, whose dive into the crease was beaten by Hardik Pandya's quick return to MS Dhoni, was his fault".
Tight opening bowling from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah put India well on top in the must-win contest for both sides. "We played some good shots and then just a couple of bad, errors of judgement out there cost us".
"I think initially before AB got run out, he did really well and Faf did really well".
The unorthodox seamer picked up 2 for 28 from his eight overs with his effort earning him the player of the match award in what was effectively a quarter-final. "The bowlers stuck to their lines and got us the breakthroughs when we needed them". Most importantly, the bowlers again came to the party with a very resounding performance.
So what if they couldn't get off to a fast start in the first ten overs?
India will now face Bangladesh in the second semi-final on June 15 while Group A topper England will face the victor of the final Group B fixture between Sri Lanka and Pakistan to be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Monday.
