De Villiers to lead South Africa in T20 series v England

The match between India and South Africa was a must-win for both.

Earlier, South Africa found it impossible to take charge against India's accurate bowling and only Quinton de Kock (53) produced an innings of substance. "That sort of mindset is really helping all of us to come together as a unit and make things happen". However, playing in England for the first time, the English conditions seems to have taken him by surprise. Let's give bowlers a break.

India join England and Bangladesh in the semi-finals, with the remaining place in the last four going to the victor of Monday's Group B meeting between Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

Perhaps the more embarrassing of the two ended with Faf du Plessis and David Miller finding themselves diving for the same crease, allowing Jasprit Bumrah to throw the ball to the non-strikers end for the run out to be completed and the latter mentioned batsman departing.

After those run outs, the fight went out of South Africa, showing why they aren't a champion side, and have never been one in ICC tournament.

"At the global level, the margin for error is always minimal, and South Africa did not play the big moments well".

"Yes, you are making decisions, but the inputs from such experienced players are priceless at any stage of the day", Kohli concluded. "When those factors are not there, you pay the price and it's the team's approach that has been the missing ingredient", he added. It's the same for us. We had a couple of sessions here, and we are very much prepared for that.

In case you didn't know.

Indian team is full of match-winners.

With just four runs to his credit in the tournament, De Villiers was under pressure to deliver a key innings.

"We have also been impressed as a panel by the quality of players coming through our franchise and South Africa A system", Zondi continued.

Virat Kohli was unbeaten on 76.

"We were hoping to play better but we came unstuck against a better team".

"It made an impact because everybody chipped in and everyone was containing batsmen".

He also praised India's batting, rating it "a 10-on-10 performance". His job up front would be to cause troubles for Tamim Iqbal, who is third on the leading run-scorers list of the tournament.

The three-match T20I series will be played in Southampton, Taunton and Cardiff on 21st, 23rd and 25th June respectively.

Taking to his official Twitter account, Indian pacer Ishant Sharma hailed his side's "stunning" performance before expressing his pleasure to see their flag rise high at the Oval. Even MS Dhoni had difficulty scoring against the pace and precision of the right-handed bowler.
