India will finally start their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on Day 7 of the mega event with a mouth-watering clash with South Africa.
The Virat Kohli-led side will look to add to Proteas' agony, who are hurt after two defeats against England and Bangladesh, and have injury issues. But, India are fresh and raring to go, and that only makes them more dangerous.
India, after their second warm-up match against Bangladesh, had more than a week's time to tune off and get themselves prepared for their first World Cup match.
It will be interesting to see whether Kohli will go in with both the spinners -- Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal -- or will go in with an extra pacer in the form of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar to strengthen their pace attack -- led by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami.
