India beat South Africa By Six Wickets in ICC World Cup 2019

India beat South Africa By Six Wickets in ICC World Cup 2019

SOUTHAMPTON: Poor bating by South Africa and India launched their ICC World Cup campaign with a six-wicket win over South Africa at Southampton on Wednesday as the Proteas suffered their third defeat in as many matches this ICC World Cup tournament.

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and batted but a superb double strike by Jasprit Bumrah left his side reeling. As India was moving slowly towards the target, Rabada struck again in the 32nd over to send back KL Rahul (26) after his 85-run stand for the third wicket with Rohit Sharma. But MS Dhoni supported Sharma well to pull off a solid win for India.


India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal then took four wickets in a meagre total of 227 for nine. India´s Mahendra Singh Dhoni plays a shot during the 2019 Cricket World Cup group stage match between South Africa and India at the Rose Bowl in Southampton, southern England, on June 5, 2019.

India, with Rohit Sharma, dropped early in an innings of 122 not out — the highest individual score of the tournament to date — took their time over the chase before winning with 15 balls to spare.
