Video - Majestic Kohli Half-Century Puts India Through - Cricket World TV

In our latest news video reviewing the action at the ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh, we look back on India's six-wicket semi-final win over South Africa in Mirpur.

Earlier in the day, England reached the final of the women's competition, where they will play Australia, by beating South Africa by nine wickets.

Kohli, though, was the star of the show as he struck an outstanding 72 not out in 44 balls as India overhauled South Africa's score of 172 for four with five balls to spare.

Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh also played key roles in getting India into the final for the first time since 2007, when they went on to win the competiton.

They will now play Sri Lanka in Sunday's final attempting to become the first repeat winners of the competition.

England Women, like India, haven't won their tournament since it was first held (back in 2009) and they overcame the challenge of South Africa with some ease.

After South Africa were bowled out for 101 - with five run outs seriously hampering their charge - England cruised home losing just one wicket.
