Meanwhile, Team India beat South Africa by six wickets to win their tournament opener. Rohit Sharma bagged the Man of the match for his gritty 122* off 144 balls that saw him take India over the line in a 228 chase.
Earlier, leggie Yuzvendra Chahal restricted South Africa to a sub-par total of 227/ 9. South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis’ decision to bat under overcast conditions backfired with Jasprit Bumrah (2/35) setting the tone with twin blows in his opening spell.
India will now lock horns against defending champions Australia on June 9. On the other hand, South Africa have lost all their three matches, it looks like a long road ahead for South Africa if they want to make it to the semis.
