What a contrasting performance it was from India against arch rivals Pakistan in comparison to their contest against Australia just a couple of days back.

It is not official yet but, in all probability, South Africa are likely to get knocked out of another World Cup without managing to go all the way. Following the defeat against Pakistan, a game they should have won, it was imperative that South Africa beat Australia on Sunday to brighten their chances of progressing to the semi-finals.

India eased to an 8-wicket win with 18 balls to spare in the crucial match against Pakistan at Colombo. With this India has maintained its 100% record of beating Pakistan in a World Cup match whether it is T20Is or ODIs!

Australia have moved closer towards a Semi Final berth after crushing South Africa comfortably with a 8-wicket win with 14 balls to spare. South Africa are now in a hopeless situation in the tournament having lost two Super Eights games in a row.

The trashing they received at the hands of Australia is history now, and the only way India can progress to the semi-finals from hereon is if they beat both Pakistan and South Africa.
