Here's how Twitter users reacted to India's 125-run victory over West Indies at the Old Trafford in Manchester, the defeat knocking the Jason Holder-led side out of the tournament.
India continued their unbeaten streak with a 125-run victory at Old Trafford that ended any slight hope West Indies had of reaching the World Cup semi-finals.
It was a fifth win for Virat Kohli's India lineup and a rebound in form following a close call against Afghanistan. It was a fifth loss in six games for the West Indians since a commanding opening win over Pakistan and it makes them the third team to drop out of semi-final contention.
The West Indies bowling attack did its job when Kemar Roach (3-36) took three wickets and skipper Jason Holder (2-33) snared two to contain India to 268-7 in 50 overs. Only Kohli, with 72 from 82 balls, and MS Dhoni, with an unbeaten 56, posted half-centuries for India.
But India paceman Mohammed Shami dismissed Chris Gayle (6) and No 3 Shai Hope (5) in his opening spell and, after an innings building 55-run partnership between Nicholas Pooran and Sunil Ambris, it all went downhill for West Indies.
Let us now take a look at how the Twitterati reacted to India's victory:

The No 4 debate is back
A weak Number 4 further weakens the middle order. Always had reservations about Vijay Shankar #IndvsWI
