details

Established in 2001, the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground hosted its first ODI in 2011. The pitch at the Rose Bowl is hard when compared to other grounds in England. It offers plenty of pace and bounce which is a big plus for seamers on both sides. Batsmen should ideally start their innings slowly, opting to play it safe in the first few overs, before going hard at the ball.

Preview

Two of the pre-tournament favourites India and South Africa will be squaring off against each other in Southampton.

South Africa have played two games in the World Cup 2019 so far, losing both the match one against the host England and another one against Bangladesh. After disappointing start of the tournament, the team will be looking to register their first win against India.

India will be playing there first game of the tournament and will be looking for a boost start of the tournament. Virat Kohli & Co. will be looking to take advantage of under confident Proteas. Indian team looks very well balanced from all the aspect.
