The awaited match of ICC World Cup 2019 has finally arrived. After watching the unexpected defeat of South Africa by Bangladesh, it has become extremely difficult for anyone to predict what might happen next. As the matches are being played, the audience seems to get more tangled in the anticipation of what’s going to happen next.
New to this season of the World Cup, India will be playing its first match against South Africa, who have already played two matches this season. The scheduling has been done in a tricky manner that will keep the audience hooked to the matches, specially the Indian cricket fans.
Unfortunately for South Africa, their season did not start off as well as expected. They lost their first two matches in this season, and now they are up against India, who was at the top of their game in the previous world cup. India has shown its A-game against South Africa and succeeded several times.
Yet, there are barriers that team India needs to overcome before the big opening match against South Africa, this includes the injuries in the team, the most recent one being of Virat Kohli.
