A wonderful start to the campaign for India, while South Africa has a lot to ponder on! 

Join us for more updates from the World Cup, right here at Sportskeeda!
India seals off a comfortable 6-wicket win to start off their World Cup campaign on the best possible note. 

Rohit Sharma powered this chase with a measured 122 not out off 144 deliveries. However, it has to be said that South Africa's total of 227 was never going to be enough. The Indian bowlers, especially Chahal and Bumrah put a tight leash on the South Africans. 

Chahal ended up with 4 wickets as the Proteas typically crumbled against wrist spin. South Africa would also regret the many starts from their batsmen. In the second inning, Rohit Sharma weathered an early storm and accelerated later on in order to bring up his 23rd ODI century.
FOUR! India win by six wickets! The Men in Blue are off to a great start in the 2019 World Cup while South Africa slump to their third straight defeat of the competition. 

Pandya finishes off in style as he slashes at a ball outside off stump to finish off with a boundary.
47.3 FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Hardik Pandya. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs.
47.3 Wide Andile Phehlukwayo to Hardik Pandya. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by de Kock.
47.2 Andile Phehlukwayo to Hardik Pandya. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
47.1 Andile Phehlukwayo to Hardik Pandya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to deep point for 2 runs, fielded by Tahir.
Phehlukwayo to continue.

46.6 Chris Morris to Hardik Pandya. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Rabada.
India now only needs five runs to win from three more overs. 

Pandya on strike and one can expect him to finish it off in this over.
46.5 FOUR! Chris Morris to Hardik Pandya. Short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.
FOUR! Two balls, two boundaries for Pandya! This time Pandya pulls the ball on the front foot as it races away through the mid-wicket fence.

OUT! Morris does it all by himself! Short ball outside off stump, Dhoni looks to smack it over the long off fence, only manages to sky it up in the air, Morris calls for the catch, takes it well in the end although he falls over the non-striker's stumps. Has his arms up in the air and sports a smile as Dhoni walks back.
46.1 OUT! Caught & Bowled. Chris Morris to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Morris.

45.6 Kagiso Rabada to MS Dhoni. Slower length ball, outside off stump down the track cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to point for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.
Rabada has bowled out and finishes with figures of 10-1-39-2. A fantastic effort from the young pacer, who made batting difficult for the Indian batsmen up front and even in the end but was unlucky to pick up a couple more wickets. 

India now needs 15 runs from 24 balls to win.
45.5 Kagiso Rabada to Rohit Sharma. Short, middle stump backing away pulling, in the air under control to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Shamsi.
