Team news & latest updates.
Everyone’s eyes are on India’s top three openers. India’s all high scoring match have strong support from first three. Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma & Virat Kohli they really need to fire if India need to get a huge score on board.KL Rahul’s 4th position will be a crucial one only if he can keep the confidence from last warm up match against Bangladesh. Only question is that whether Kolhi opt for a spin bowling attack or a pacer one. Shami & B Kumar needs to shine if we need a early attack bowling side.
After the first 21-run loss to England in first world cup match plus injury concerns causes South Africa a huge headache. Dale Steyn & Lungi Ngidi have ruled out of this match due to shoulder injury and hamstring injury respectively. Replacement for pace attack will be tough, Dwaine Pretoriu have more chances of getting added to lineup. Return of Hashim Amla will be major one, as he missed first match likely to comeback.

Our pick is India, they look like a better side & batting lineup looks deadly till 6th man. There is 70% chances of raining tomorrow till noon. So pitch’s condition will be volatile & toss will be crucial as chasing will be tough. So team bats first will try to put a huge score on board.
