"Great performance. Well played. Congrats Team India. You make us proud yet again," he tweeted.

Shikhar Dhawan smashed a rollicking 137 as India rode on a clinical display to break their World Cup jinx against South Africa with an emphatic 130-run victory in a group B match.
     
Dhawan's career-best 137 propelled India to a comfortable 307 for seven before the bowlers performed brilliantly to bundle out the Proteas for 177 in 40.2 overs in what turned out to be a rather lopsided contest at the packed Melbourne Cricket Ground.
     
This was India's maiden World Cup win against South Africa after having lost the clashes in 1992, 1999 and 2011.
     
With two wins from as many matches, India now have a very good chance of qualifying for the quarterfinals as group leaders.
     
It was yet another commendable show by the Indians, who came into the tournament with a string of poor results in the tri-series preceding the mega-event.
