May 2, 2010India defeated South Africa by 14 runs in a Group C match, riding on a superb hundred (off 60 balls) by Suresh Raina, to qualify for the Super Eights of the World T20 at the Beausejour stadium in St. Lucia. Raina's first fifty took 42 balls, and his second was blazed in just 17. He was invloved in an 88-run partnership Yuvraj Singh who made 37 off 30 balls. 75 runs were clobbered off during the last five overs, which also saw Raina reaching 101 with a six. Jacques Kallis gave the Proteas a good start with his 54-ball 73, but the middle order, barring Smith (36) and AB de Villiers (31), failed to put up a good show. They could only manage 172 for five in 20 overs.
