India crushed West Indies' hopes of reaching the semi-finals with a comfortable 125-run victory at Old Trafford in Manchester on Thursday.

India scored 268 for 7, riding on half-centuries by Virat Kohli (72 off 82 balls) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (56 off 61 balls).

Mohammed Shami led the Indian bowlers to pack yet another splendid performance, dismantling West Indies' for 124 in only 34.2 overs.

This puts the unbeaten Indian team a step closer to the World Cup semi-finals with three games remaining.
