KOLKATA – India beat South Africa by 243 runs in the 37th match of the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023 at Eden Gardens on Sunday.

Chasing the 327-run target set by India, South Africa were all out for 83 runs in 27.1 overs.

Earlier, Indian star player Virat Kohli scored his record 49th ODI ton and helped Men in Blue score 326 runs against South Africa. 

Kohli, 35, celebrated his birthday with a marvelous century in the ODI World Cup 2023 as he now stands with legendary Sachin Tendulkar in top records.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma started with aggressive approch against Proteas, scoring 40 runs in just 24 balls, with two maximums and couple of boundaries.

Shubman Gill contributed 23 runs to the team's score, while Shreyas Iyer played an impressive innings, amassing 77 runs. Suryakumar Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja added valuable runs at the end, bringing India's total to 326 runs for the loss of 5 wickets.

India elected to bat first against South Africa in the 37th match of the ICC World Cup at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Sunday.

India will look to keep their unbeaten run going against South Africa when the two meet at Eden Gardens for the top of the table clash.

India will be going into the match without an injured Hardik Pandya who has been ruled out of the tournament and has been replaced by Prasidh Krishna.

All eyes, however, will be on Virat Kohli who will be taking the field on his 35th birthday, looking for impressive show against the Proteas.

However, South Africa will know that batting first has worked in their favour so far in the tournament.

The Proteas have thrived with that option, regularly crossing the 350-run threshold with ease.

And even if they don’t get their preferred bat-first, there is enough firepower in the South Africa pace attack to rattle India.

In addition, they carry a strong spin arsenal in Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi.
