Goodbye...

What a day we have had. Comical run-outs, Dhawan dazzling, Kohli playing a skipper's knock. This contest was all but over after the first innings.

South Africa are out of the tournament, India will almost certainly face Bangladesh in the semis at Edgbaston on Thursday. You can watch highlights from today's game on BBC Two at 23:00 BST.

Join us on Monday for Sri Lanka v Pakistan - the winner will probably England in Cardiff on Wednesday.

Enjoy your evening, goodbye.

This was India's joint heaviest win over South Africa in terms of wickets - and only the fifth time since 2003 that South Africa have lost by eight wickets or more.

'The run-outs cost us highly'

South Africa captain AB de Villiers: "It's not an ideal way to finish the tournament. It's disappointing, but credit to them - great intensity in the field and they didn't miss the mark. They put a lot of pressure on us.

"We got something nice going until the run-outs which cost us highly today. We just came unstuck against a better team."

Simon Hughes

BBC Test Match Special commentator

South Africa scored only three boundaries in the first 10 overs - it was like Amla and De Kock were facing Walsh and Ambrose. The bowling was disciplined but they refused to take some risks. They had to make a statement.

'The guys really stepped up'

India captain Virat Kohli: "It was a good toss to win; the wicket didn't change too much. Our bowlers bowled really well and the fielders backed it up. It was a complete performance in the field - we grabbed the chances that came our way.

"It's always good to get AB out early - that was a good breakthrough for us. We wanted to step up in the field, and the guys really stepped up with their intensity.

"It's important for someone to bat until the end and I was able to do that. Shikhar's intent was outstanding. This the best game we have played so far."

'Experience helps me stay calm'

Shikhar Dhawan, who made 78 off 83 balls, on Test Match Special: "We bowled really nicely and got them out for a low score. Hats off to the fielders too.

"I was playing with calmness - it was important today to build a partnership. I have been playing one-day internationals for years now so that experience helps me stay calm."

On the semi-final: "We are going to keep the intensity high and dominate the game."

Simon Hughes

BBC Test Match Special commentator

It was like something you see in the under-11s. It was comic and it was sad - it was really pathetic.

Ex-England seamer on BBC Test Match Special

It was criminal from AB de Villiers and David Miller, when you think about their ability to take the game away from the opposition. They will be absolutely livid with themselves, especially to get run out.

It was a sorry batting performance from South Africa - and there were probably a few sorrys in the dressing room after those run-outs.

When India won the toss and decided to chase, the probability of them winning was slightly more in their favour. But South Africa didn't turn up whatsoever with the bat. They got off to a solid start - people could say it was too slow - but they were never able to get away. They fell away quite considerably. India were probably thinking, presents coming early.

Man of the match Jasprit Bumrah, who took 2-28: "I'm happy with any role that's given to me by the team. I'm happy to bowl with the new ball and we contained at the start.

"The ball isn't swinging too much, so I wanted to bowl a hard length. All the bowlers chipped in.

"It was a good toss to win. Chasing has been easier. The wickets are not helping the fast bowlers."

Complete and utter domination from India. Having lost to Sri Lanka, this was a good time to come back and smash South Africa to pieces.

India beat South Africa by eight wickets

India 193-2 (38 overs)

No messing about. Six from Yuvraj.

South Africa are out and India join England and Bangladesh in the semis.

India 183-2

Target 192

Short and quick from Tahir, Kohli opens his body, rocks back and swats it to the boundary. South Africa going through the motions, India just moments away from a win. They have bossed this.

Kohli has played Tahir to perfection today. Judge for yourself...

How's stat?!

This is the slowest 50-plus score of Virat Kohli's career. He scored at a strike rate of 71.5 - 68 off 95 balls - against Sri Lanka in Harare in 2010.

India 176-2

Kohli 70, Yuvraj 12

Are India going to gently pace over the line or are we going to see some big hits? Yuvraj and Kohli don't want this to end just yet, they're having too much fun. Just three from JP Duminy's over. Lap it up, lads.

not-outNot out

India 172-2

Nope, I'm not wrong. Replays show it hit the bat first so Yuvraj remains. Couldn't even tell you if it was going on to hit. Doesn't matter, 19 more needed.

Dan Norcross

BBC Test Match Special

There is a bit of bat at some point. But when?

Umpire review

Yuvraj on 9

Lbw appeal against Yuvraj. I think it got an edge; I may be wrong.

India 172-2

Target 192

Brilliant. Just, brilliant. Graeme Smith earlier said that Kohli is one of the best players of spin and he's not wrong. He plays against the turn of the ball and flicks Tahir through mid-wicket for the four of the day.

Dan Norcross

BBC Test Match Special

There is still a game of cricket on, but as a contest it ended about three hours ago.

India 166-2

JP Duminy with his all-over-the-shop bedhead hair comes in. He floats them in and India happily rotate the strike. I've seen a few signs around the ground and various tweets about an India v England final. Could yet be a Pakistan v India final. Can you imagine? 26 runs from 96 balls needed.

Jamie Alter: What do you call a South African in the final of an ICC tournament? Marais Erasmus.

India 162-2

Should South Africa have brought Tahir on sooner in the innings? Would it have made any difference?

The Pakistan-born South African darts one in a bit quicker and it just misses the edge of Yuvraj's willow.

A couple of singles are exchanged before Yuvraj makes no mistake in picking one up, driven down the ground for a one-bounce four.

Eventful over, ending with a leg-before shout which looked to pitch outside leg. Worth a review though? I mean, what do they have to lose?

Alison Mitchell

BBC Test Match Special

There has been some disdainful strokeplay from India.

India 156-2

Target 192

Yuvraj eager to get on strike, a bit too eager as he makes his way down the wicket and is rightly sent back by his captain. Well communicated. Good running between the pair as Kohli dabs it to mid-wicket and they run for a two. South Africa in a similar position would probably have run one and a half.

India 154-2

Target 192

At least the India fans will get to see Yuvraj Singh have a bat. The remainder of Tahir's over is seen off with ease. Three from it.

So Dhawan scores big again. He's been an absolute gem at the top of the order.

Phil Tufnell

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

A crumb of comfort for South Africa. Tahir's celebration was just a little jog this time - he's usually off and running. Even with his enthusiasm, he knows the game is up.

WICKET

Dhawan c Du Plessis b Tahir 78 (India 151-2)

What a shame he couldn't get to triple figures or see this one through. Dhawan advances to the leggy, Tahir throws down the googly and it loops up to Du Plessis at long-off, who takes a decent grab.

Ed Smith

Ex-England batsman on BBC Test Match Special

This is a victory march for India. It just depends whether they want a slightly quicker qualification or a slightly longer net.

Ind 151-1

Target 192

Any suggestions on what India can watch at the pictures tonight?

150 up. They have absolutely dominated this game. Nobody thought it would be this one sided.

During this innings, I sometimes think back to them South African run-outs from earlier today, just for the giggle. Not seen it? There you go. Enjoy ...

Phil Tufnell

Ex-England spinner on BBC Test Match Special

India have decided that they need an afternoon down the cinema. The period when South Africa could get back in the game has gone. This is nice time in the middle for both Dhawan and Kohli.

India 148-1

Dhawan 75, Kohli 55

Nothing going right for South Africa today. Kohli's pull doesn't find the middle and it falls in no-man's land.

Next up, TV replays show there was a big no-ball from Rabada but not called by the umpire. It's okay, India can do without the free-hit, let's not add salt to South Africa's wound.

Six from it. 44 needed from 21 overs. I reckon they will do it in five.

How's stat?!

Andy Zaltzman

BBC Test Match Special statistician

This is Kohli's 68th score of 50 or more in 174 ODI innings. Since the start of 2016, he is averaging 88 in ODIs at a strike rate of just under a run a ball.

50 for Kholi

India 142-1

And there it is. A gentle push off the back foot and the captain brings up his half-century. With his captain's milestone out of the way, Dhawan steps up on the gas, twice finding the big gap on the long-on boundary.

No messing about, get this out the way and start preparations for the semi-final against Bangladesh at Edgbaston. Cor, can you imagine the atmosphere for that one?

Here's some of the best of Kohli today ...

India 131-1

Target 192

Short from Rabada, Dhawan pulls and a leading edge takes it down to the fine leg boundary for four. They're making such easy work of this target. There's flag waving, bhangra dancing and vuvuzeling going on in the crowd. Kohli takes a single from the final ball to keep the strike, poised on 49.
