india should have scored 360 plus to give their bowling a fighting chance but it was SA bowling in the end that changed the scenario. Amazing display of fast and aggressive bowling by Steyn. SA bowlers strike at the right time. Excellent batting display by SA batsmen Amla, Kallis & AB de Villiers provided the platform and superb stroke playing by Botha and Peterson in the end. The ups and down of the match was fantastic... In the end excellent win for SA. Congratulations from Pakistan!

Who are the chokers now? South Africa who lost against England on a crumbling pitch? England who lost against minnow Bangladesh, blaming the wet conditions, or India losing a game they could have won by a mile with just a bit of concentration?

I think this continuous use of the chokers tag for South Africa is just a big joke. The way they won this game just proves it. In every match there is 1 winner, 1 loser. Any of the top teams can beat any of the others on any given day.

@Naushaba Bhatti - Idiots always finds way to Blame Sachin somehow. It's his team that lets him down usually and not the other way around. He scored a perfectly paced century just like his last one and nobody else bothered to turn up. He did not go for personal achievement, that was just the end result of his fabulous knock.

England beats WI gets 7 points. BD beats SA and Netherland gets 8 points. WI beats India and gets 8 points. SA beats Ireland and gets 8 points. Now it's between India and England, with 7 points each, on the basis of run rate. Fellows Wake up! India hasn't technically made into Quarter Finals yet!

India deserved to loose...After 1-266 at 39 overs if your team finishes 296 all out then they do deserve to loose. Shameless middle and bottom order. Dhoni should be ashamed and apologize for saying top-order to bat longer.

Indian speciality: Defeat from the jaws of victory. Another Tendulkar ton in vain. Dhoni gives the last over to the guy who was most profilgate on the day! Common sense would be Harbhajan should have bowled 49th and Zahir the 50th. May be India doesn't want to be on the top and meet Pakistan in QF.

Dhoni talks as if hes contributing with the bat 5 mtch and jus 96 run guess as the that doesnt matter

Oh! poor Doni, he wanted to stay NOT OUT & gave the strike to the bowlers. Personal wise he achieved his target, but as a representative of the country he did not do his job.

lets see where sachins 100 takes India today..as its proved in the past his personal achievement never seem to help the team..perhaps rest of the team just relaxes whne he scores a ton and think tht there is no need for them to step up since the jobs been dne :S..they ease out.

GO PROTEASS!!!

Imagine! 267 for one with visions of making 350 or more, now........can't even bat out their overs......what a mess!!
