6.50pm A resounding performance from India put SA out of their misery. SA were so under-par for the majority of the day that they didn't deserve to be in the official knockouts. Virat Kohli was at it again, the chasing master. Saw off a testing opening spell and then just did Virat Kohli, taking India through. Shikhar Dhawan was terrific. Cliched yes, but this was a complete India performance from the start, keeping the SA openers on a tight leash and it resulted in tight singles that shouldn't have been. Thereon, there was just one winner. India will play Bangladesh in one semi final, a repeat of the 2015 World Cup quarter-final. And South Africa may go home for a bit before returning to England for the Tests.

Virat Kohli: "A good toss to win, the wicket didn't change too much. A decent wicket to bat on. The fielkders backed our bowlers. The opportunity comes your way, you have to grab it. Always good to get him out early, he can always hurt you (AB de Villiers). We wanted to step up that intensity. Important for someone to bat till the end, but Shikhar's intent was outstanding. This is probably our best game we played so far. We played in Birmingham, we like that pitch, suits our game. No looking back. Always room for improvement, always small point you can improve on, can't rest on your laurels.

AB de Villiers: Not an ideal way to finish. Credit to them in those first 15-20 overs, put the pressure on us, we normally don't bat that way. We never got going, very sad obviously, We were hoping to play a better game of cricket. Came unstuck against a better team. Couldn't it get away. A lot of soft dismissals."

Jaspirit Bumrah is the Man of the Match: "An important game for us. We wanted to be calm and execute our plans. I'm happy with any role given to me. As long as you're contributing, it's good. The ball doesn't swing too much, so stick to the basic,s bowl a hard length, don't give room. A good toss to win, chasing has been relatively easier."
