India whipped mighty South Africa by 130 runs to step closer to a quarter-final berth in the World Cup on Sunday.

India piled up 307 for seven after electing to bat and then bowl out the Proteas for 177 with almost 10 overs to spare in the day-night Pool B match. Dhawan, the left-handed opener hit 16 boundaries and two sixes during his seventh one-day international century.

Steyn, one of the most fearsome fast bowlers in the modern game, finished with figures of one for 55 from 10 overs.

Faf du Plessis top scored with 55 but India made regular dents in the South African batting, with off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin taking three wickets and seamers Mohammad Shami and Mohit Sharma sharing four wickets.

Dhoni’s men will move into the quarter-finals if they beat the United Arab Emirates in Perth on February 28.

South Africa, one of the pre-tournament favourites who beat Zimbabwe in their first match, have two points from as many games.
