In order to win, you have to say things that hurt: Kohli

Sri Lanka too suffered a heavy 96-run defeat at the hands of South Africa but came up with a stunning batting show to shock India by seven wickets to place themselves in contention for a semifinal berth.

"You have to be honest".

"I suppose, after that moment, Dave (Miller) came in and we discussed that it is extremely loud out there and hard to hear each other so the communication between the two of us was just for the next five overs, just play it as risk-free as possible". "Please help me, ' says I". We are asking everyone to do it and everyone is responding really well. Try and get the partnership going in, settle the partnership because the last thing you want to do is go wicket, wicket. It's not about asking two, three players to do it.

"You have to be good enough to do that for the country and you have to be good enough to bounce back, as well".

Should Sri Lanka win their match against Pakistan, they will face England in the semi-finals.

"Until you have a team effort, you can not win games, especially in conditions that you are not familiar with". It is unlikely to have the same support in Cardiff tomorrow and it will have to be seen how much it impacts on the team performance. I don't think we are a bad cricket team.

He was justified. In one-day internationals, he's the No. 1-rated batsmen, two teammates are in the top six, they have the top two bowlers, and the team's ranked No. 1.

And it was the run out of De Villiers, one of the greatest cricketers of the modern era, which sparked South Africa's collapse from 140-2 to 191 all out.

His fourth Champions Trophy didn't work out, but that hasn't stopped him looking forward to what he hopes will be his fourth Cricket World Cup in 2019, back in England. I don't know how many maiden overs or dot balls, but something that we spoke about, we executed that, and that always feels good as a team.

"Through soft dismissals we lost our way and that was the part that hurt the most". "We just want to take one game at a time".

"Not a lot of people believe me but I feel it is pretty close, it is very hard to say that after a performance like this but that is what I believe in my heart".

Whichever team wins will advance into the semi-finals of an event featuring the world's top eight one-day worldwide teams, with the losers eliminated from the "mini World Cup".
