Match 37: India vs South Africa

India's dominance in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 continued as they registered their eighth consecutive win in the tournament. Opting to bat first after winning the toss, Indian captain Rohit Sharma set the stage for an imposing total with a quick start alongside Shubman Gill. The duo added 50 runs in just 4.3 overs before being dismissed early.


However, it was Virat Kohli's century and Shreyas Iyer's valuable contribution that propelled India to a formidable total of 327 runs. Kohli, celebrating his birthday in style, smashed his 49th ODI ton, equalling Sachin Tendulkar's world record. The partnership between Kohli and Iyer, where they added 134 runs for the third wicket, was instrumental in taking India past the 300-run mark in their allotted 50 overs.

Chasing the target, South Africa had a dismal start and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. The Indian bowlers were relentless, with Ravindra Jadeja being the standout performer, claiming 5 wickets for just 33 runs in his spell of 9 overs. South Africa's batting lineup crumbled and they were bowled out for a paltry 83 runs, handing India a resounding victory.
