The match has started at 3 pm and South Africa won the toss and chose to bat. Jasprit Bumrah took two wickets of Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock.
Virat is leading the team as a captain in the World Cup for the first time and he is quite confident about his boys. As reported by Zee News, Virat said, “It is an advantage in terms of understanding how the games have gone, what the conditions offer and what is the pace of play. From that point of view, we have a lot to absorb. We have a lot of positives that we can take out of starting after everyone else.”
India is yet to bat and we want them to win their first match and prepare hard for the rest. The next match of India is on June 9 against Australia.
