The fans feel the heat in India while the players beat the first game in the UK. Thus finally it’s ‘beat the heat’ that’s expected to come with every win from India after 2011 World Cup was won. However India couldn’t reach the final in 2015 season.

Exactly a week after the World Cup 2019 started, India played its first match against South Africa on 5th June. The game kicked-off with some aggressive bowling performances from Bumrah, Chahal, and Kuldeep Yadav representing India while South Africa were able to put a target of 228 on the board. The 2nd Innings where India opened their batting had some cool and steady performances with Rohit hitting a century while KL Rahul, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya supported him well. It was Dhawan and Virat Kohli who were however, not able to maintain their form.
