ICC World 20-20, IND vs ENG, Super 8: India beat England by 18 runs

India Cricket team England Cricket team India registered a 18-run victory over England in the must-win Super 8s game to keep their hopes of reaching the semi-finals of the Twenty20 World Cup alive, in Durban on Wednesday.
After being set a huge target of 219 runs to win the game as Yuvraj Singh set the record for the fastest half-century and hit six sixes in an over from Stuart Broad, England could manage 200-6 in their allotted 20 overs. India will now have to win tomorrow against the hosts South Africa, who have won two games. New Zealand, who have also won two matches, and only two teams with most points or better run-rates in case all three end up with two victories apiece, go through from the group. England head home after being defeated in all their Super 8s games.
Earlier, openers Virender Sehwag and Gautham Gambhir put on a solid foundation scoring 136 runs for the first wicket and Yuvrajs inning saw India finish with 218-4 after M S Dhoni had won the toss and elected to bat first.
