Match Result - India won by 8 wickets
MOM - Jasprit Bumrah (India) for his 2/28(8 Overs)

India defeated South Africa by eight wickets to march into the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 on Sunday. Chasing 192, Indian batsmen started off cautiously and lost Rohit Sharma in the sixth over itself. But, opener Shikhar Dhawan along with skipper Virat Kohli not only revived India's chase but stitched together a match-winning partnership of 128 runs. Dhawan departed for 78, while Kohli remained not-out on 76 to take the team through with 12 overs to spare. In all likelihood, India is expected to top the Group B, which means they will meet Bangladesh in the semi-finals.
The Proteas lived up to their 'Perennial Chokers' tag in a virtual quarter-final clash that turned out to be a thoroughly one-sided encounter.
It was Dhawan's third 50-plus score in the competition, while skipper Kohli made amends for a rare failure against Sri Lanka in style, notching up his 41st ODI half century.
Earlier, an impressive bowling performance that was complemented by fantastic fielding effort, saw the holders skittle out South Africa for a paltry 191 in 44.3 overs after winning the toss
It was yet another embarrassing batting collapse after the openers put on 76 runs. The world's number one team lost the last eight wickets for 51 runs after being comfortably placed at 116 for one at one stage.
Two run-outs of skipper AB de Villiers (16) and David Miller (1) within the space of six deliveries triggered the slide from which they could never recover, with almost all the Indian bowlers succeeding in choking the runs.
India bowled an astounding 141 dot balls which is equivalent to 23.3 maiden overs out of the 44.2 overs that South Africa batted
India took control of the match in the second powerplay (between overs 11-40), in which South Africa managed only 143 runs, losing six wickets in the process.
After a poor match against Sri Lanka, Ravindra Jadeja (1/39 in 10 overs) was at his accurate best, stifling the runs in those middle overs in tandem with comeback man Ravichandran Ashwin (1/43 in 9 overs).
Man of the Match Jasprit Bumrah (2/28 in 8 overs) was on target with his block hole deliveries and cleverly mixed short balls, which did the trick.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/22 in 7.3 overs) was on a hat-trick as he not only polished off the tail, but also maintained a brilliant channel outside the off-stump, making life difficult for the top-order batsmen.
Even Hardik Pandya (1/52 in 10 overs) gave a much better account of himself, bowling as many as 29 dot balls and also got Faf du Plessis (36) to drag one back onto his stumps.
Ashwin and Jadeja may not have got too many wickets but removed openers Hashim Amla (35) and Quinton de Kock (53, 72 balls) after a sedate start
