India storms into World T20 final

India storms into ICC World Cup T20 final today with a win of 6 wickets by South Africa. Chasing a competitive target of 173, reigning ODI world champion India completed the task with five balls to spare to reach their second World T20 final.  The reigning ODI world champion will lock horns with Sri Lanka in the title clash on Sunday. Kohli produced his best T20 international knock when it mattered the most, scoring his runs in just 44 balls and with the help of five fours and two sixes. It was a fantastic knock on a difficult track that was not conducive for stroke-making.
Suresh Raina's 21 off nine balls was equally important in the final context of the match as India reached the final for the first time since the inaugural edition in South Africa. Needing 51 off the last five overs, Kohli upped the ante as he smacked Imran Tahir over deep mid-wicket for a huge six to complete his 50 off 35 balls. But Tahir got a break when Yuvraj Singh (18) didn't get the elevation and A B de Villiers took one of the best catches of the tourney, running from his long-on position.
