India and South Africa, the current leaders of the 2023 ICC World Cup, will face off on November 5 in Kolkata. The atmosphere will be lively at Eden Gardens as the occasion coincides with Virat Kohli’s birthday.

South Africa performed amazingly well in this tournament. In the 7 matches they have played so far, they have won the first 5 times. Here is their tally: 428/5 against Sri Lanka, 311/7 against Australia, 399/7 against England, 382/5 against Bangladesh, and 357/4 against New Zealand. However, when they had to bat for the second over, they won one by one point (against Pakistan) and lost the other by 38 runs (against Netherlands).

India, on the other hand, has been unstoppable so far. The Men in Blue have been effective in batting, bowling and fielding. Can they maintain their unbeaten record against their toughest opponent this time? let’s see.

According to CricTracker, regardless of who bats first, India will secure their eighth successive win. MyKhel also expects India to register another win and remain at the top of the points table.
