An unbeaten Indian side will take on South Africa to clinch the top spot.
The Men in Blue must be confident after the 301 run victory against their Asian counterparts, Sri Lanka. Solid knocks from Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer set the stage for a mammoth target of 358 in Wankhede.
This was not a huge task for India’s pace factory as they bowled out the islanders for 55. Bumrah and Siraj struck out the top order while Shami joined the party to dismiss the middle and lower order.
Mohammed Shami took five wickets again in this World Cup. In the three matches he played, the pacer bagged 14 wickets, giving an impressive performance in each match.
As for the Proteas, their last encounter against the Kiwis was the same story as their previous matches. Brilliant double centuries from Quinton de Kock and Van der Dussen helped the South African team achieve a target of 358 runs.
Meanwhile, the New Zealand team were all out for 155, as Keshav Maharaj and Marco Jansen picked 7 wickets together adding to the opposition’s woes.
The last time South Africa and India met in the 2019 world cup, India chased down a target of 229 runs with Rohit Sharma’s scintillating knock of 122 runs.
Get ready for this top-of-the-table battle, with India looking for their eighth straight win and South Africa looking to confirm their semi-final spot.
