As the cricket world cup fever rages, South Africans are hoping that today’s game will change the fortunes of the Proteas. Reeling from three consecutive losses, the Proteas meet the unpredictable West Indies in the 15th scheduled match of the world cup.
On Sunday, 9 June (Match 14), India scored a massive 352 runs after winning the toss and choosing to bat first in their encounter with Australia. A confident 114 by opener Dhawan and the wily skills of Chahal and Kuldeep ensured India a 36 run victory.
In the meantime, India captain Virat Kohli and Australia skipper Aaron Finch joined forces to condemn the “unfair” bail controversy that threatens to ruin the ongoing Cricket World Cup. On at least 5 occasions thus far, bails were not dislodged despite the ball striking the stumps.
