LONDON (AP) — India became the first team through to the Champions Trophy semifinals by beating West Indies by eight wickets on Tuesday following a second consecutive hundred from Shikhar Dhawan and Ravindra Jadeja's first ODI five-wicket haul.

After Jadeja captured 5-36 to limit West Indies to 233-9, a total inflated by Darren Sammy's late batting heroics in hitting 56 from 35 balls and a more measured 60 from Johnson Charles, India swept to 236-2 with 10.5 overs to spare at The Oval.

Having scored 114 in India's 26-run win over South Africa last Thursday, Dhawan made 102 not out with 10 boundaries and a six from 107 balls.

The result eliminated Pakistan and ensured the winner of Friday's match between West Indies and South Africa also qualifies from Group B.
