India win toss and bowling first vs SAfrica in Champs Trophy

11 off the over, with the Indians in firm control of the proceedings at the moment.

The Indian team came out with a brilliant performance, both with the ball and in the field, to bowl out South Africa for a lowly 191 in their last Group B fixture of the ongoing Champions Trophy here at the Oval on Sunday.

Both India and South Africa have two points from their two Group B matches and the victor at The Oval will advance to the semi-finals while the losers will be eliminated. On match eve, he was made to bowl for almost two hours, meaning India had taken cognizance of the three left-handers in the SA lineup - De Kock, David Miller and JP Duminy.

Then again, uncertainties are made any sport especially, cricket match glorious, and the resurgence of both Pakistan and Sri Lanka made the things captivating in this "group of death".

It might be a tough prospect to predict the victor of this game, but we can see most of the teams this time giving good performance at the cricket champions' trophy.

"It improves you as a cricketer".

"So we are pretty clear about the whole situation".

Fortunately for Kohli, India were able to feast on a South Africa team bereft of confidence after a lacklustre midweek loss to Pakistan.

"But I'm very excited with this opportunity for the team and for myself on the big stage to go and just enjoy what we do best".

The South Africans will be overjoyed as their iconic skipper and Mr 360, AB de Villiers has declared himself fit for the game.

Although India posted a solid score of 321 against Sri Lanka, their batsman failed to push on for an unassailable total.

Kohli hinted changes are on the agenda as he looks to find the right balance in his bowling attack.

"Teams generally like chasing, so it gives us a chance to do what we need to do when we come out to bat", Kohli said. But fans will be loved to see a quality contest in the match and eventually teams will come as a victor. Still hitting the ball well, as always. Ab de Villiers is also most feared batsman in limited-overs cricket. But he would not hang about as his poor form in the tournament continued and he was run out as South Africa tried to sneak a single. He just does it really well when he gets going. Aimed at the stumps, de Kock goes for a sweep but misjudges the length and departs for 53 off 72.
