Presentation:

Bailey: "Pakistan outplayed us. The ball turned more, they used spin against us well. You want your top order to do the majority of the scoring. The challenge will be to get that form back in the semis."

Hafeez: "I'm grateful to see the effort put in by the boys. We got the total we wanted, Raza Hasan was brilliant."

Raza Hasan is the Man of the Match: "I'm really happy at the moment as it's my first big tournament. Everybody gives me confidence. Ee knew we had to try hard."

Pakistan will now be glued to the TV for the second match. India will need to win comprehensively to keep their hopes alive. Not over yet.

The commentary for the second game has started. Thanks for your company here. We will end with this cracker from Sundar: "The problem is, even if India do manage to get to the SF, they will end up playing SL. All those who want an Ind-SL SF, please raise your hands."

End of match: Australia are through to the semi-finals despite a big defeat. A big thumbs-up to Pakistan for the way they took them on in the field. They should be proud of this bowling effort after the disappointment against India. Pakistan played to their strengths - spin - and didn't bring on pace till the 18th over. By then, Australia's chase was already derailed, but 112 was within reach. That their middle order was tested shake off any complacency that may have set in. We saw that happening to WI when Gayle fell early.

South Africa will now play for pride. What's at stake for India? S Rajesh tweets: "If India score 160, they need to win by 32 runs; if they score 140, the margin needs to be at least 31."

Umar Gul to Starc, 1 run, Starc miscues the pull off a short ball and Gul runs forward to take the top edge but it lands safe of any fielder

Umar Gul to Hussey, 1 run, low full toss and he pushes it down to long-on and it's only a single

This also means that South Africa are knocked out

Umar Gul to Hussey, FOUR runs, and Australia are through to the semi-finals! They have huffed and puffed to get here, Gul bowls it short and Hussey makes a bit of room and slashes it wide of backward point, he punches the air
