South Africa vs Kenya

Some late blitz by Gerald Coetzee and Jade de Klerk has helped power South Africa to 341 for 7 in their 50 overs. Skipper van Tonder was the star with the bat, hammering five sixes in his 121-ball 143-run innings.

Sri Lanka vs Ireland

After a steady 73-run stand by the openers, Ireland have lost quick wickets. Opener Jamie Grassi is going well from one end but he needs support.

India vs Australia

India have won the toss and elected to bat. With Australia fielding no left-handers in the Playing XI, India have packed their side with three left-arm spinners.

South Africa vs Kenya

Kenya have come back quite well after the 125-run second-wicket stand. They have kept chipping away wickets at regular intervals after scalping Abhishek Chidambaran. South Africa have lost seven wicket so far, with six more overs remaining, but more importantly skipper Raynard van Tonder still at the crease.

What a knock by the skipper! And what a way to kickstart the world cup campaign. Raynard van Tonder brings up a fine ton, faster than run-ball to lead South Africa’s charge here.

Sri Lanka vs Ireland

Unlike South Africa, Ireland have been far more slow to get going. The openers – Jamie Grassi and Mark Donegan – are going steady. They have put on a half century stand as Sri Lanka have failed to bag a wicket so far.
