Team India started its world cup campaign with a win against South Africa in the opening game. Team India opening batsman Rohit Sharma hit a brilliant knock of 122 runs and he helped the team to win over South Africa by 6 wickets. Team India played their first World Cup 2019 game against South Africa in Southampton. Although, the match was looking easy for team India but the being on winning side always gives strong confidence to Men in Blue.
The Master Blaster and 'God Of Cricket' Sachin Tendulkar has expressed his satisfaction with India's performance and also has a special advise for them for the tournament. The classic player has asked team India to now move forward for the next game that will be played against one of the most contender team Australia on 9th June.
India Today quoted Sachin Tendulkar as saying, "I think the first win under the belt is always a comforting feeling. It means you have started on the right note and you want to build on it. The dressing room must be happy with what they have been able to achieve. This game is over and my advice now to the team would be to pack the confidence that you have gained from the match, pack it in your kit bag and move on to the next game,"
Meanwhile, team India has started well but there is another side story for South Africa that has lost all the three matches in their world cup 2019. The first match they played against hosts England and they lost the match with a huge margin. Then in the second match, South Africa lost to Bangladesh and that was also in the amazing surprise. Now they will have to win all the games to stay in the world cup 2019 race.
