In their opening match against South African squad, Indian tigers amazed everyone with their brilliant performance in all three departments of batting, bowling and fielding. After winning the toss, Proteas started the game vigorously by choosing to bat first but India restricted the whole team of Africa at just 227 runs in 50-overs. In the second innings when Indian batsmen take on the field Proteas tried to make a good comeback in the game but Rohit Sharma’s wonderful century crashed their hopes to win this match, as a result, India chased down the target easily and sealed their opening match with the clinical win.
India will next take on World Cup champions Aussies on June 9, 2019 at The Oval stadium while South Africa will lock the horns with Windies on June 10 at Rose Bowl Cricket Ground in order to turn their fortunes as the Faf du Plessis-led squad has not won any of its World Cup matches so far.
