It is that time of the year that we were eagerly waiting for and ICC 50 overs worldcup finally started with a bang as South Africa take on hosts England here at Oval.
South Africa won the toss and decided to bowl first on a pitch we thought that had some assistance to bowlers early on.
It was not a great start with all the expectations to English team as they lost their 1 st wicket for just 1 run.But decent fifties from Roy,Root and Morgan built some momentum to the inning.
Most importantly 89 from Ben Stokes lead England to a respectable score of 311 for 8 wickets.Lungi Ngidi was the highest wicket taker for South Africa as he took 3 wickets for 66 runs in his 10 overs.
This score looks good on the board but still England could hv get around 340 plus if not for a good bowling effort by South Africans in a good pitch.As per the sitiuation at the break South Africans might have the chance of getting their first points on the table.
But still with ex factor of Archer ,England can defend this with disciplined bowling effort.
