ABOUT THE MATCH
Unfortunately for South Africa, its problems do not seem to be going away just yet. Two losses from two to start world cup 2019 is not ideal.
They now face, India, one of the strongest sides in this edition of the tournament and a team which has had a lot of success against South Africa recently.
South Africa vs India ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at the Rose Bowl, Southampton on the 5th of June.
The team winning the toss is going to want to bat second. Teams have preferred to chase in the World Cup so far and the rain could also help the side that is chasing.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
South Africa vs India ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at the Rose Bowl, Southampton. The weather forecast for Southampton on match day is not very good. We should be able to start the match on time but there is a very good chance of rain in the afternoon.
This could mean that DLS calculations come in place and affect the outcome of the match.
The pitch at the Rose Bowl is flat with good pace and bounce in it. There is not too much in the surface for the spinners and we could see some swing thanks to the high humidity.
A score of around 320 should be considered par if the full 50 overs can be played out.

South Africa needs to get its act together fast. They have seven matches left in the tournament and need to win five or maybe six out of them to have a chance of qualifying for the world cup semi-finals.
For some reason, South Africa has looked very tentative in the World Cup so far. Their fielding has been unusually poor, the batting has lacked urgency, and none of the bowlers have been able to make an impact on the opposition.
Rabada has been in the news for calling Virat Kohli ‘immature’ and that personal contest may fire him up.
The batting lineup is well-stocked and strong enough to win matches.
They need to believe in themselves and come at the Indian’s hard because that is the only way they are going to win.

India has a very well-balanced side, and this is why they are considered as title contenders by all the experts.
This team combination gives India batting till number 8 and five genuine bowlers to call on.
India is going to be well-rested and keen to take advantage of a South African side under tremendous pressure to win.
