Cape Town - India have been confirmed as the Proteas' opponents in the ICC World Twenty20 semi-finals.

Sri Lanka's sensational 59-run win over New Zealand on Monday saw them leapfrog the Proteas as Group 1 winners.

South Africa will now play the winners of Group 2, India, at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Friday.

Sri Lanka will face either West Indies or Pakistan in the first semi-final on Thursday, also in Mirpur.

The Proteas will have skipper Faf du Plessis back for Friday's clash after he was suspended for last Saturday's match against England due to his team maintaining a slow over-rate.

The final of the tournament is scheduled for Sunday in Mirpur.
