ICC World Cup 2019: Sushmita Sen, Abhishek Bachchan and other Bollywood stars congratulate Rohit Sharma and Team India on emphatic win over South Africa

Posted On / /

Team India started their World Cup campaign on a rousing note, with a six-wicket triumph over South Africa at a packed Rose Bowl Cricket Ground in Southampton on Wednesday.

Also, the Bollywood stars were ecstatic after witnessing Team India’s commanding performance that found their twin pillars in opener Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 122 and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal’s four for 51.

South Africa was restricted to 227 for nine in 50 overs after Chahal snapped up key wickets. His two spells kept the Proteas on a leash. None from the opposition line-up got a grip on the spinner, and perished.

The chase was never going to be easy under cloudy skies and with a rival pace attack that was potent despite the absence of Dale Steyn. Kagiso Rabada prised out Shikhar Dhawan but India had a string of partnerships that ensured the target was within reach.

‘Man of the Match’ Rohit braved past the initial nerves, smote a few sixes and fours and dropped anchor while the others batted around him, ranging from skipper Virat Kohli to veteran MS Dhoni.

Here are some best tweets from the B-town celebs:
