In the first half of the day, Pakistan beats Australia by 32 runs and now they too want that South Africa beats India, so that they can make sure that they ar e going to play in semi-finals.
Australia is already into semi-finals, and in Group B, Sri Lanka and West Indies are into semi-finals.
MS Dhoni is not happy as he lost the toss today; he would like to bowl first if he wins the toss because India has to record a big win tonight. Indian cricket team need big innings from openers Sehwag and Gambhir and Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh.
However, there is no change in the Indian team, but South Africa made two changes, Faf du Plessis replaces Richard Levi and Albie Morkel comes in for Wayne Parnell.
