India start their World Cup campaign with a comfortable win after outclassing South Africa in all the departments. Jasprit Bumrah set the tone with his fiery spell after India were put in to bowl and Yuzvendra Chahal finished the job with the four-for as South Africa succumbed to a small total. Yet, the pitch had enough demons in it, presenting a ray of hope to South Africa but Indian batsman and especially Rohit Sharma showed what the Proteas were missing. He stood tall and weathered the storm to take India to the finishing line.

Meanwhile, South Africa have lost three consecutive matches so far. Their bowling department has been plagued by injuries while batsmen are struggling to get going. Among all this it will be better to ignore how bad their fielding was. It's going to be a long tournament for Faf du Plessis and Co. 

We are done for tonight. It's time to bid you guys goodbye but if you want to catch the action from New Zealand and Bangladesh match, please hop over to our other LIVE blog.

Virat Kohli, Indian captain: The wait was very long then we get a game like this, which was challenging throughout the day. Was important to start on the right note, have a win that was complete. If you look at how the game went and pitch behaved, it was challenging. Hats off to Rohit, his innings was special especially after looking at the conditions. We knew the conditions with new ball were always going to be challenging. Jasprit is operating at different level. Chahal was outstanding as well.There's one thing when you see a bowler bowl and when you catch the ball, you understand the heaviness.The next 15 minutes my hands were buzzing, that's how quickly Bumrah is bowling. Was absolutely outstanding to get Amla out like that in ODIs, I haven't seen it. To get Quinny rushing is special. I think with new ball he is brilliant. He isn't bowling freebies. He might get one wrong withthe yorker here and there, otherwise he has been brilliant. First win is always important as a group we were confident. MS was very compose, with Hardik also. I think we were very professional.

Faf du Plessis, South Africa captain: India were magnificent on a tough pitch. They bowled really well. They have got good fast bowlers and spinners who can always take wickets. We did well to pull it back with the bat before their spinners ran through our middle order. Rohit had a bit of luck but he did what we didn't do, he get a hundred and win the game. With all our fast-bowling resources gone, we picked an extra spinner, it meant we needed a score to bring them into play. Rabada is a champion, haven't seen so many balls lands short of go here and there. But that's how the game goes, when you aren't playing your best cricket, these 50-50 things don't go your way. Morris too was superb, bowled well and scored some crucial runs with the bat. Ours is a change room that is hurting, trying to make sure we keep fighting but we're making mistakes all the time. 

22:53 (IST)

Done. Dusted. In truth, only one team was on the field. And they wore blue. Never before have South Africa lost all of their first three games at a World Cup.

22:52 (IST)

This is the first time that South Africa have lost three consecutive matches in ICC ODI World Cup.

22:52 (IST)

Rohit Sharma the man of the match for his superb hundred. Paced his innings just to perfection and took the game home for India. All other batsmen batted around him, albeit Rahul should have shown a bit more patience. Even so, India got past the finish line while into third gear. In helpful bowling conditions, India had to grind hard as South Africa didn't throw in the towel. It didn't matter in the end as they didn't have enough runs on the board. 

India get their World Cup campaign to a winning start. Next up... Australia! 

22:51 (IST)

Rohit: A different experience from playing for India. There was something for the bowlers throughout the game. So, it wasn't easy to play the natural game. Had to take my time to play shots, had to cut down certain shots I love to play. Wanted to leave a lot of balls initially, was trying to stick to the basics and build partnerships even though it was a small total. All the batsmen in the team have a job, it's their role to bat through and get the job done. We can't rely on one or two individuals. Whoever is out in the middle must get the job done and that has been the hallmark of this team for the last few years. That's a beauty of playing in England. We have early start in June compared to July or August, so we didn't sweat a lot. I had fun. It wasn't a typical Rohit Sharma innings as I had see out couple of overs at the start

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match 8 India vs South Africa Latest Updates: Pandya gets a four through deep backward point and India have beaten South Africa by six wickets. Rohit Sharma has been star of this chase.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Match 8, India vs South Africa at the Rose Bowl in Southampton, Preview: India open their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign, against South Africa in Southampton's Rose Bowl on Wednesday. Billed as pre-tournament favourites, India, led by Virat Kohli, warmed up to the event with a loss and a win against New Zealand and Bangladesh respectively in practice matches. Meanwhile, Faf du Plessis' South Africa, searching their maiden World Cup trophy, have stumbled to consecutive losses to England and Bangladesh and need to win most of their remaining seven matches to stake a claim for last-four berth.

India will rely on their top three to fire, while KL Rahul looks likely to bat at the much-debated No 4 spot. Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, and all-rounder Hardik Pandya complete the batting line-up.

Among bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami look set to lead the pace attack, while it will be interesting to see if the team management goes for the spin twins Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, or drop one of the two wrist-spinners to make room for left-arm finger spinner Ravindra Jadeja.

Team composition notwithstanding, India will start hands-down favourites given the recent form of both teams.
