Meanwhile, Team India defeated the Proteas side by six wickets to win their tournament opener. Rohit Sharma bagged the ‘Man of the match’ for his gritty 122 not out off 144 balls that saw him take India over the line in a 228 run-chase.
Earlier, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (4 for 51) restricted South Africa to a sub-par total of 227/9. The Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis’ decision to bat under overcast conditions backfired with Jasprit Bumrah (2/35) setting the tone with twin blows in his opening spell.
