SOUTH AFRICA (D2) vs INDIA (A1) at Trent Bridge Super Eight
South Africa Beat India To March Into Semi-Finals Unbeaten
June 16, 2009AB de Villiers scored 63 in a low scoring match with seven fours in 51 balls, as South Africa made 130-5 and finished off India, which made 118-8 at Trent Bridge to complete the Super 8s unbeaten. South Africa, which had already qualified for the semifinals, returns to Trent Bridge on Thursday when it meets Pakistan in the first semifinal.
Dhoni blamed India's batting for the failure and said supporters had every right to be unhappy. India put on 48 for the first wicket, but collapsed once Gautam Gambhir fell in the seventh over for 21. Raina returned soon with three, and opener Rohit Sharma with a team-best 29 followed him. Dhoni was senselessly run out in the 13th for five, and Yusuf Pathan faced just two balls before he was caught by de Villiers off Roelof van der Merwe in the next over without scoring. Yuvraj and Harbhajan steadied India, and scored some quick runs, but Harbhajan fell in the 17th for 14 and Yuvraj was out six balls later for 25.
