“Play or You’ll Have to Watch Bharat!” Fans React as India Beat SA in WC

Team India started its ICC World Cup 2019 campaign on a winning note after comfortably defeating South Africa by 6 wickets. Rohit Sharma was the star of the show, having scored an unbeaten 122 run-knock to ensure the Men in Blue chased down the target of 228 in 48 over.

In the first innings, Yuzvendra Chahal was in top form, as spinner ran through the Proteas’ middle order. Having been reduced for 89/5, it seemed that South Africa were headed for another low-scoring innings. However, the lower order did what the top order could not. Andile Phehlukwayo (34), Chris Morris (42), and Kagiso Rabada (31) all played a creditable game to help South Africa reach a defendable score of 227/9. Although they lost a couple of early wickets in the second innings, India managed to comfortably chase down the total courtesy of a impressive knock by Rohit Sharma. The Hitman’s 23rd ODI century was peppered with 13 fours and 2 sixes.

Naturally, the Twitterati went haywire after India won their opening World Cup match. Here is how the fans reacted:
