Watch India’s debut match in World Cup against South Africa on YuppTV

It’s been 6 days since the world cup had started, but India hasn’t played a single match yet. All the other teams had played at least a match and some teams have played twice. The first match of Indian team is scheduled to happen on 05th of June in The Rose Bowl, Southampton at 09:30 AM GMT.


Most of the matches since the beginning of the tournament were pretty much one-sided. The very first match between England and South Africa, the second one between West Indies and Pakistan, the third one between New Zealand and Sri Lanka and the fourth match between Australia and Afghanistan were fully one-sided and one could predict the result early in the match.

There have been some thrilling matches like the one between Pakistan and England, in which Pakistan surprisingly beat England and the one like Bangladesh vs South Africa in which Bangladesh beat South Africa. Pakistan’s victory was a surprising one given the team’s performance in the first match was brutal. Pakistan faced a crushing defeat against West Indies. The team lost all its wickets for a total of 105 and West Indies chased that total in just 13.4 overs.

South Africa played its first match against England in which it couldn’t chase the target set by the England team and was all-out for a total of just 207 runs. In its second match against Bangladesh, SA was to chase a bigger target of 330 and it managed to reach 309 runs in the allotted 50 overs. The team comprises of fantastic players like Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Faf Du Plessis, Jean-Paul Duminy, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, etc. but failed to perform at its best against both England and Bangladesh, thus faced a crushing defeat against both.

The match against India will be the Proteas’ third match in World Cup 2019 and the team will certainly be looking for revenge for the losses in the first two. While this is India’s first match in the World Cup Leagues, it will be exciting to see the team at work in live.
Indian team comprises of players like Virat Kohli (C), MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, etc. While the final team is a suspense till now, it has been in the news that Virat Kohli had an injured thumb and might miss the first match against SA. Nevertheless, the team has fantastic players and is expected to make an outstanding impression in the first match in WC.
