South Africa won their opening match of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup by 62 runs over Zimbabwe. India won their opening match by 76 runs over Pakistan. Now, they are facing off against one another, and it is going to be a great face-off that you’ll be able to watch streaming live online if you can’t be there in person.
Cric Buzz reports that the India cricket team is going to struggle against South Africa, and they could get their first defeat of the Cricket World Cup. Jonty Rhodes, a former cricketer, believes that South Africa is more well-rounded as a team and will defeat the defending champions this weekend.
“Much as I see India putting up an improved performance over the past few months in Australia, fresh from their rejuvenating win against Pakistan, I foresee a South African win with their strong batting, lethal bowling and an all-round fielding side led by mercurial AB de Villiers.”
Over the summer, India had some problems and even lost the Test series 0-2. However, they didn’t win a single match in the tri-series right after that. Rhodes believes that South Africa will be able to take advantage of these failures from India and exploit them.
Yahoo! Cricket states that India needs to have their openers get the team off to a fast and consolidated start. Dale Steyn needs to be contained and not pick up early wickets. Stopping him from picking up a wicket will be a success for India, as it will affect South Africa’s entire team.
Both of these teams want to continue their streak of winning in the World Cup, but it’s not going to be an easy task. This is a tough game, and you won’t want to miss a single second of it.
The match between South Africa vs. India is scheduled to begin at 14:30 local time (03:30 GMT) on Sunday, February 22, at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds in Melbourne, Australia.
ESPN will begin online streaming at 10 p.m. EST on Saturday, February 21, but that is just one option to watch South Africa vs. India live. ESPN does charge a fee to watch all of the matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, so be aware of that.
Some of the other options include CricHD, PTV Sports, Sky Sports 2, or Star Sports, and these will be good to check out South Africa vs. India in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. You will be able to enjoy any of these streaming options to watch the match live and not miss a moment of the action.
