Kohli salutes intense India's demolition job

India's captain Virat Kohli (2nd R) shakes hands with South Africa's David Miller after the ICC Champions Trophy match between South Africa and India at The Oval in London on June 11, 2017.

"I don't think we are a bad cricket team".

Kohli survived an edge towards Amla in the slip cordon as more boundaries followed to bring up the 100 for India, with no further wickets lost.

Virat Kohli hailed India's focused bowling and fielding displays as his side thrashed South Africa to book a spot in the semifinals of the Champions Trophy.

Hashim Amla was very watchful, escaping an early run-out attempt as he toiled for runs before falling for 35 off 54 balls. His rising stocks saw him lead the Proteas in two World T20 campaigns, and although they didn't grab the title, he remained the best option to lead the side in both Tests and ODIs while AB de Villiers nursed his myriad injuries and then later picked and chose the tournaments he wanted to play.

Amla made the most of his latest let-off and cracked a six off Pandya to finally start pushing South Africa forward.

The former was the first to go when MS Dhoni showed he has lost nothing with the gloves, snaffling a fine low catch from the bowling of Ravichandran Ashwin.

De Kock was bowled by Ravindra Jadeja for 56 but it still did not seem the innings was about to sink.

South Africa could have no complaints as they limply departed the tournament after a second successive defeat.

Later, Kohli made 42 runs with Yuvraj Singh for the unbeaten third wicket stand.

If that run-out was unlucky, the next - which saw Miller depart for just one as both he and Faf du Plessis ended up at the same end following a lack of communication between the pair - was farcical. India played the game with more intensity, it took more risks and stuck to its method and game formula far better than the South Africa team.

The In-form Miller was involved in a disgusting mix-up with Du Plessis to end up at the same end.

He still harbours the dream of playing the 2019 World Cup and firmly believes that the Proteas can win it.

Kumar lined up a hat-trick ball by taking Morne Morkel for a golden duck, as he edged a simple catch to Kholi.

India scored 193 for two in 38 overs.

Trying to explain the run outs, de Villiers said: "Two guys try and trust each other to pull off a run or two and sometimes. you come up short".

While Rohit Sharma only managed to add 12 runs to the chase, the duo of Dhawan and Kohli did a fantastic job, powering the chase until the 31st overs. "A few errors of judgement, a few mistakes out there cost us badly today", he said. Couldn't it get away.

"We have tried quite a few things, camps and psychologists, whatever you want to call it".

Asked whether a radical shake up is needed, De Villiers said, "That's a question can only be answered by people who are in control of making radical decisions". We came here to win the game of cricket.
