India vs South Africa World Cup 2023 match will mark the clash of the titans in the ongoing ICC tournament. Both the teams have kept forward their top-notch game in the series. While India has won all 7 tournaments it has played so far, South Africa currently sits at number 2 on the points table with 6 win out of 7, and 12 points in their kitty. India has already qualified for the ICC World Cup 2023 semi-finals. If South Africa wins against India, it will also enter the Top 4 club for the semi-finals. However, if they lose tomorrow’s match, South Africa will need to win its remaining match against Afghanistan to ensure a seat in Top 2. India, meanwhile, is leading the score table with 14 runs. It previously scored a phenomenal win against Sri Lanka, wrapping up their innings in just 55 runs.
The match between India and South Africa will be played on Virat Kohli’s birthday, and there are a lot of expectations from the former skipper to score a century and create a new record of being a batsman with maximum centuries in ODI format. He has missed the target twice now in the World Cup. India has also received another shock as Hardik Pandya is out of the remaining World Cup matches due to his ligament tear. We can expect to see no change in the Playing XI for this match, as both Suryakumar Yadav and Mohammad Siraj have shown their calibre to perform.
On the other hand, opponents South Africa has only lost one match, against Netherlands. It has the highest net run rate in the tournament, after scoring wins with huge run difference. Eden Gardens have been one of the best grounds for team South Africa. It comes ready with the best batting lineup as well as several game changers. Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen may face challenge from Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. However, today’s match is a completely unpredictable one.
India vs South Africa ICC World Cup match will be played at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens on November 5. The game will begin at 2pm IST, while the toss will be at 1.30pm IST.
