    India wins by 243 runs

    India has just thrashed the second-in-table South Africa by 243 runs. Rohit Sharma got off to a brilliant start. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer then constructed a huge partnership to set the perfect stage to go beyond 300. Virat Kohli scores his 49th ODI Century, equalling Tendulkar's record number. Iyer scored 77 while Jadeja and Surya Kumar played short but effective cameos to pile up a total of 326 which is a huge total, especially in a wicket like Eden Gardens.

    From there on, it was all about the Indian bowlers. Siraj struck the first blow, removing the dangerous Quinton de Kock. Then Shami dismantled the rest of the top order. Jadeja then ended the show with a five-wicket haul as Indian secured an eighth consecutive win at the World Cup and seals the top spot in the points table.

    Pitch Report

    "It looks like a better surface when compared to the last game, that pitch had a lot more spots. It did turn a bit, but it got better under Dew. This pitch has a lot of spots at one end, but not a lot from the other end. It does look slow, there will not be a lot of bounce, the batters need to adjust to this surface. It has got a nice tan and there is some grass on the surface. Both teams have got their bases covered. A bat-first track," reckon Ravi Shastri and Irfan Pathan

    Temba Bavuma at the toss

    "We would have batted first, but now we need to chase, which will be a nice challenge. We know that;s one area where we need to gain more confidence, we'll have to bat with responsibility. We have been putting on good consistent performances and we'll look to improve going forward. One change - Shamsi comes in place of Gerald Coetzee."
