India vs South Africa Live
Both sides have incurred injury concerns ahead of the game, but it is South Africa who have come off far worse.
Dale Steyn’s tournament is over before it had even begun after the Proteas quick was ruled out of the whole competition through injury, while fellow fast bowler Lungi Ngidi is also expected to miss out after he injured his left hamstring during the defeat to Bangladesh on Sunday.
The better news for Faf du Plessis’ side is the expected return of Hashim Amla, who sustained a blow to the head against England and was therefore forced to sit out the game against the Tigers.
India meanwhile also suffered a scare when captain Virat Kohli injured his thumb in a net session at the weekend but there are no concerns over the injury ahead of the game. The 2011 winners should also be able to field Kedar Jadhav after recovering from a shoulder problem to take part in the same session.
What are the odds?
South Africa’s two defeats from their opening two games in the tournament and India’s pedrigree in ICC tournaments has been reflected by Sporting Index, who prefer Virat Kohli’s men pricing them as 18-28 favourites in the supremacy market with a point awarded for each run won by or 10pts per wicket won by.
Moreover, India will be confident of causing further disarray with their stellar top-order batting lineup to a South Africa bowling outfit that has already lost Lungi Ngidi to injury.
Therefore, the ton-ups market may also be of interest with India quoted at 19-22, with a point being award for each run scored after a batsman passes 100. Hashim Amla’s likely return will strengthen South Africa’s batting and the Proteas ton-ups are quoted at 12-15.

The injury to Ngidi and Dale Steyn being ruled out of the World Cup leaves South Africa slightly short in the bowling department up front, which means it might be worth keeping an eye on the fall of the first wicket market. Sporting Index are offering 49-54 for the fall of India’s first wicket, while South Africa are available at 42-47.
