India will begin their World Cup 2019 campaign against a beleaguered South Africa on Wednesday. India are the only team to have not played a match yet, while South Africa have already lost two games, being outplayed by England and then Bangladesh. With the long league providing chances to all teams, South Africa would be hoping to get the better of India and put some points on the table. However, India are never pushovers, so this would be quite a contest.

India have had the worse of exchanges in World Cup cricket, as is evident below:
