Pacer Jasprit Bumrah provided India a heck of a start to their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign by dismissing both the South African openers in successive overs at Rose Bowl, Southampton on Wednesday.

Bumrah, 25, first dismissed Hashim Amla in the fourth over of the match with an angled delivery which got a thick outside edge, and Rohit Sharma taking a sharp catch at second slip. The right-arm pacer followed it up with the wicket of Quinton de Kock in the sixth over to rattle to the Proteas. Another outside edge, but from a perfect delivery, bowled to the field set by the captain. The pace and movement of the ball undone one of the most technically gifted batsmen.

Watch the dismissal here:

In his spell of five overs, Bumrah conceded 13 runs for two wickets. Here are some reactions:

South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and elected to bat in the eighth match of the ongoing tournament.

Injury-ravaged South Africa brought spinner Tabraiz Shamsi into the playing XI, while playing two allrounders in Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo.

South Africa's pace spearhead Dale Steyn was ruled out of the World Cup Tuesday due to a shoulder injury, while Lungi Ngidi too is nursing a hamstring strain.

South Africa has lost their opening two matches, while it is the first match of the World Cup for India.
