By YouTube

Pre-tournament favourites South Africa are up against defending champions India next on Sunday February 22 in the World Cup.

This is the fourth meeting between the two sides in the World Cup.

The Pool B clash is scheduled to begin at 7.30am UAE time at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

India are in buoyant mood after their morale-boosting 76-run win against arch rivals Pakistan in their opening match at Adelaide on Sunday.

Virat Kohli (107) became the first Indian batsman to score a century in a World Cup against Pakistan.

India made 300-7 while Pakistan were all out for 224 with Misbah scoring 76.

South Africa survived a spirited Zimbabwe fight back to win by 62 runs.

David Miller (138 not out) and JP Duminy (115 not out) set a new world record sixth wicket partnership of 256 off 178 balls as they made 339-4.

Zimbabwe were all out for 277.
