With a historic 50th ODI century that extended India’s confident World Cup run to the title match even as the Kiwis attempted to spoil the home team’s party with lion-hearted combat, Virat Kohli made the international stage his own and added more luster to his colossal persona in the first semi-final against New Zealand on Wednesday in Mumbai.
Australia once again showed their mettle on the big stage, defeating South Africa with a spirited three-wicket triumph in the second semi-final held at Eden Gardens on Thursday. This victory put Australia in the eighth ODI World Cup final.
In the second semifinal, Starc and Hazlewood proved to be too good for the Proteas, as they easily routed the top order. After losing their first four wickets for 24 runs, South Africa rallied to a valiant 212 thanks to a brilliant 101 from David Miller, who withstood tremendous pressure on his way.
Despite their below-average total, the Proteas managed to bring up the score with a determined bowling effort. They gave it their best from the start and stayed in control of the situation until Australia like they usually do, kept composure to win the match in 47.2 overs, paving the way for an exciting matchup against bitter rivals India in Ahmedabad on Sunday.
Most people will remember Australia’s thrilling triumph against South Africa at Eden Gardens as just another thrilling back-and-forth between the two sides in a crucial game. There will be a few passing allusions to their 1999 World Cup matchup, particularly the fact that the scores were almost identical.
