LONDON: India are on course to reach the Champions Trophy semi-finals after demolishing woeful South Africa for 191 in their do-or-die clash on Sunday.

Virat Kohli’s side must win their last Group B fixture to avoid an embarrassing exit and they rose to the challenge after electing to bowl first at The Oval.

South Africa, who face elimination if they lose, found it impossible to take charge against India’s accurate bowling and only Quinton de Kock (53) produced an innings of substance.

India were aided by the shambolic South Africans, whose captain AB De Villiers failed for the third time in the tournament after being run out for 16.

In total, South Africa had three run outs as they lost their last eight wickets for 51 runs.

If India mount a successful run chase, the holders will join Group A qualifiers England and Bangladesh in the semi-finals.

The remaining last four place will be decided on Monday when the winners of Sri Lanka against Pakistan will advance. – AFP
