Result: India won by 7 wickets

Runs streamed as India got their mission looking winning so far against South Africa in Benoni, putting down an early marker as competition favorites.

A dazzling whirlwind of early runs saw South Africa get off to a lightning-speedy beginning, with openers Simone Lourens and Elandri Janse Van Rensburg causing the harm. The score was 56/1 after only four overs when Janse Van Rensburg fell for 23 off 13, and the speed of scoring eased back somewhat as the innings went on. Lourens top-scored with 61 from 44, preceding some late hitting, lifted the Proteas up to an amazing 166/5.
