De Villiers confident of leading South Africa in 2019 World Cup

13 Juin 2017

Self-appointed expert Kamaal R Khan ranted against India on Twitter ahead of Team India's virtual quarter-final clash against South Africa in the Champions Trophy. India, however, put up a commanding performance in the field and bowled exceptionally well to restrict South Africa to a mere 191.

Kohli's side had had to win against South Africa in their last Group B fixture to avoid an embarrassing exit and they rose to challenge with ruthless display to beat the Proteas by eight wickets to storm into the semi-finals of the ongoing event.

Now Pakistan are just one game away from a semi-final with either tournament hosts England or Bangladesh and a wary Mathews said: "We all know they're a very unsafe team".

Although South Africa got off to a comfortable start with a projected score of 300, the batting order collapsed with a mere 51 runs being scored with eight wickets down, which ultimately led to India being faced with a target of 191 runs.

Kohli, on the other end, returned to form, though looking a bit uncomfortable at the early phase of the innings, but went ahead to remain unbeaten at 76 runs.

The dispute has prompted renewed calls for a chairman from outside the United Kingdom and Ireland to be appointed. That could be done this time tomorrow morning or dinner time today.

This win took India's points tally to four points, while South Africa, with only two points from three matches, were eliminated.

Sri Lanka play Pakistan on Monday, with the winners likely to meet England in Cardiff on Wednesday.

Pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar bagged two wickets each.

Faf du Plesis (36) joined Quinton in the middle and they made 40 runs in 41 balls.

De Villiers was run out when he ran for a single for du Plessis but a throw from Hardik Pandya at the wicket-keeper caught him short of the crease. Yuvraj Singh contributed an unbeaten 23 towards late in the chase.
