AB de Villiers was named the Man of the Match for his devastating knock. That's all from this game. Join us back tomorrow for a special double header. Until then, farewell!
22 was required off the last over and England fell just a boundary short of it. They can go back with their heads high as they have been involved with 3 close games so far and now have only a game with Netherlands left.
Alex Hales and Michael Lumb started off on quite a blistering note but South Africa kept coming back with key wickets at crucial junctures. Buttler too planned out his innings in such a way that he could go all-out attack in the last overs but Tahir removed him and England were behind from there on.
Excellent performance from South Africa. It was laid by two extremely talented batsmen, Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers. First, Hash set things at the top of the order with a good 50 and then AB de Villiers, with his variety of strokes, was striking big blows in the death and propelled South Africa to 196.
Dale Steyn to Tim Bresnan
SIX! Doesn't matter but South Africa win by 3 runs and they go into the semi-finals! A full ball, Bresnan swings it away nicely over long off and finds the biggie but England have fallen short of one boundary. ENGLAND HAVE BEEN KNOCKED OUT!
FOUR! Lucky one! A good length delivery wide, Bresnan swings and finds an inside edge to fine leg.
SIX! Excellent but to no use, or may be not? A short of a length delivery outside off Bresnan swing and pulls it away over square leg.
Dale Steyn to Stuart Broad
A good length, Broad swings it down to long on for one.
A full toss outside off, Bresnan edges it down to third man for one.
Stuart Broad is now in next.
Dale Steyn to Ravi Bopara
OUT! That's the end of England's chances for sure! A full length delivery outside off, Bopara skies it up in the air and Miller takes it well at the long on fence.
Dale Steyn now has the ball in his hand. 22 needed off the final over.

A good length ball, Bopara heaves it through mid on and takes one.
WIDE! Falls under pressure and bowls it down the leg side.
SIX! Gets one of the 5 required! A low full toss again, Bopara heaves it away over long off.
A short and slow ball outside off, Bopara tries to hook but misses.
Tim Bresnan walks in.
to Chris Jordan
OUT! Excellent catch and England's hopes dimishing here. A full length delivery outside off, Jordan miscues it up in the air. AB de Villiers rushes back from from mid off and plucks it well.
FOUR! Gets it away! Another full toss outside off, Jordan heaves it away past covers.
Lands in a yorker on middle, Bopara can't do anything about it.
