S Africa beat England by nine wickets

Andrew Hall took five wickets to help South Africa surge into the World Cup semi-finals and eliminate England with a crushing nine-wicket win in the Super Eights on Tuesday.

Medium pacer Hall bagged a career-best five for 18 to dismiss a woeful England for 154 with two overs remaining after Michael Vaughan had won the toss and elected to bat despite a lively Kensington Oval pitch.

South Africa then knocked off the runs in just 19.2 overs to complete the rout with captain Graeme Smith hitting an unbeaten 89.

The Proteas join defending champions Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka in the last four with the semi-final match-ups determined by the final positions in the round-robin Super Eights table.
