England have been knocked out of the ICC World Twenty20 as a result of South Africa’s victory over New Zealand in Durban.

Paul Collingwood’s side needed New Zealand to defeat the hosts, and they had to beat India themselves later in the day to stand any chance of reaching the semi-finals.

But South Africa’s six-wicket victory at Kingsmead ensured England had little but pride to play for when they met India on the ground where Justin Kemp hit the winning runs for the Proteas barely an hour earlier.
