The win has set the stage for a thrilling final in Ahmedabad, where India will face the winner of the second semi-final between Australia and South Africa.
The semi-final spectacle witnessed a masterclass in batting as Virat Kohli etched his name in history with his 50th ODI century.

The team’s total reached an imposing 397-4, with KL Rahul adding a cameo at the end.
In the second innings, the spotlight shifted to the bowling prowess of Mohammed Shami, who delivered a sensational 7-wicket haul. His stellar performance played a pivotal role in India’s triumph, as they successfully defended their formidable total, ultimately winning by a margin of 70 runs. The collective efforts of the Indian cricketing maestros showcased their dominance on the international stage.
