What a performance from England, outclassing South Africa today. Shah and Colingwood were impressive in the middle overs, and Morgan blasted England past 300. It was always going to be a tough target and despite Smith's stunning century South Africa ended well short and are out of the tournament. Sri Lanka are still in with a chance of making the final four, depending on the result of the England-New Zealand match.
If New Zealand beat England, they will make it, otherwise it they will be out because their net run-rate is below Sri Lanka's.
For everyone asking why South Africa are out, the have finished with a net run-rate less than Sri Lanka's, so they are eliminated irrespective of the result of the England-New Zealand game.
Smith: "It's jugely disappointing, I think it's about giving your all, unfortunately we fell 22 runs short. Two of the games, we have given away over 300 runs, it's difficult to chase that much regularly. You have to give credit to the way England batted, anything around 300 we would have cruised in but 320 was a step too far.
"I wish I had a remedy, we've got the potential, there is no point giving excuses," he says about going out of another ICC tournament.
Strauss says that's the best he has seen England bat in an ODI. "The way Paul and Owais played the spinners was crucial, setting the platform for Morgan at the end. For the last 18 months, Anderson has been expceptional, and now he's learning to have a Plan B even when the ball isn't swinging. "
Owais Shah is the Man of the Match. "Can't wait for fielding practice tomorrow," he jokes. "I'd love to bat on this pitch everyday. It was a beautiful wicket to bat on."

Last words go to Matt, who mails in: "I'm South African. I'm sitting in Newark Airport in the US. I'm gutted."
