Team India will start their world cup campaign against a low lying South Africa on June 5 in Southampton. The men in blue started their tour with a shocking loss to the hands of New Zealand in the first world cup warm-up game which raised questions over the middle order and the spin bowling.

Virat Kohli and company bounced back in style in the second warm up game against Bangladesh where centuries from middle order batsman KL Rahul and MS Dhoni proved to be a decisive factor. The spin twin of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav picked three wickets each to announce their arrival in form.
