That's a wrap on things from our side. We are now headed towards the 1st semi-final where India lock horns with New Zealand at Old Trafford on 9 July. It should be a cracker. Do join us then for live action. Until then, it's goodbye.
Faf du Plessis, South Africa captain: We have turned up in the last two games. We have been able to score hundreds to give a chance to the bowlers. Inconsistency didn't help our cause early on in the tournament. I think India will be really happy that we won today. I would pick an India-England final. India and Australia play big games very well so I would back one of them.
Aaron Finch, Australia captain: We would have loved to win this game. We fought pretty well to get out of the hole. David Warner and Alex Carey were magnificent. It's a little bit frustrating to tail off at the end but there's plenty to learn from it. Doesn't look ideal for us with Khawaja at the moment. We have to wait for the scan reports. Not sure about Stoinis too. The semi-final is going to be a blockbuster. Doesn't get bigger than that: an Australia-England World Cup semi-final. Looking forward to getting down to Birmingham and starting our preparations.

South African skipper Faf du Plessis is adjudged as the Man of the Match for his splendid century.
Coming back to the game, South Africa were quite brilliant on the day. After amassing a match-winning total on the board, the bowlers rocked the Aussies with early wickets. However, David Warner and Alex Carey batted brilliantly to give a major scare to Faf and Co. Loss of wickets at crucial junctures though didn't help Australia's cause as the Proteas held their nerve to finish their campaign on a high note. A fitting goodbye to Imran Tahir and JP Duminy from the ODI format in South African colours.
The result also means that India will now play New Zealand in the first semi-final at Old Trafford on 9 July while arch-rivals Australia and England will fight it out in the second semi-final at Edgbaston on 11 July.

Phehlukwayo to bowl the last over of the match. Can he seal the deal or will Australia's tail-enders pull off a miracle?
Right then, Lyon scampers across for 2 runs to leave 18 runs to get off the final over.
