Twitter has been going crazy for India as they score runs for fun against South Africa…
Shikhar Dhawan has gone – but his innings could well prove to be a match winning one. The 29-year-old opening batsmen scored 137 off 146 balls – his highest ODI score – before being caught in the deep by Hashim Amla off the bowling of Wayne Parnell.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the Cricket World Cup drama:

Extreme respect for Dhawan. The effort and the turn around has been plain phenomenal.

Ashutosh : What an innings by Dhawan! He deserves standing ovulation!

Great innings by Dhawan but still finishes with -9. The top thee at -29. This has to be overcome by someone else and add 25+ to finish 325+
