Video and stats highlights from India v South Africa match

Great start for the Indian cricket team.

After a long delay, India cricket fans finally got to see their team playing in the World Cup. And it was a great start to India’s World Cup campaign as they won their opening game handsomely against the Proteas.

After winning the toss, Faf opted to bowl first and why not, side batting first at Southampton in the last ten matches have won eight times. But Bumrah, who was making his debut in World Cup and playing his 50th ODI for India, had some other ideas.

India required just 228 runs to win. But if India had Bumrah; South Africa had Rabada. The pitch was also helping the seamers, and Rababa made sure that India does not get off to a flying start. Rohit, on the other hand, was determined to stay on the wicket and made sure that India reaches the target safely. Rohit’s 122* was later called as his best ODI hundred by the skipper Virat Kohli.

Watch the Run chase (Indian innings)


  • Rohit Sharma scored his 23rd ODI hundred; he is now only behind Sachin Tendulkar (49) and Virat Kohli (41) in this list of most ODI hundreds for India.
  • Rohit Sharma became only the 7th Indian batsman to score 2 or more hundreds in World Cup. The other six are – Tendulkar (6), Ganguly (4), Dhawan (2), Kohli (2), Dravid (2) and Sehwag (2).
  • Chahal’s 4 for 51 is his 4th best bowling figure in ODIs, also the 6th best bowling figure by a bowler in World Cup against South Africa.
  • The win against South Africa is 50th ODI win under Kohli’s captaincy. He achieved this feat in his 69th game as captain.
  • Bumrah played his 50th ODI, India won 39 of those. The second best Indian to win most matches in their first 50 ODIs. Kedar Jadhav has 40 wins in his first 50 ODIs.
  • Chahal’s 4 for 51 are the best figures so far in the tournament from any bowler who has completed their full allocation of 10 overs.
