The 2023 Cricket World Cup's two best sides come up against each other today in a match-up that may well preface the eventual final. The India vs South Africa live stream will give us a chance to see which dominant team has chinks in their seemingly impervious armor on Sunday, November 5.
Virat Kohli has done it again, scoring his 49th ODI century and pulling level with the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. The hosts scored a very competitive 326/5, which should result in a very entertaining run chase.
Below are all the details for the IND vs SA streaming services in the US, UK and for FREE in Australia on 9Now. But don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on because you can watch IND vs SA live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
The unwavering faith that the billion-strong Indian cricket fans have put behind their Men in Blue has been repaid in droves. The hosts are seven wins from seven games in their home World Cup. Everything has clicked for Rohit Sharma's men, with runs coming easily and stumps skittled by the seamers.
Team talisman Virat Kohli now has 442 runs to his name. Jasprit Bumrah has 15 wickets, while the evergreen Mohammed Shami has claimed 14 of his own from just three games. It's difficult to disagree with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's tweet: "Team India is unstoppable in the World Cup!".
Trying to prove him wrong is a South Africa team that have been almost as impressive so far. With four centuries to his name, Quinton de Kock is the only man with more runs than Kohli at the tournament. And he's been ably assisted by the likes of Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller. If the bowlers can subdue the Indian batters, then there's no doubting the Proteas have the fire power to knock off any total.
Unsurprisingly, India have kept the same side, with Rohit Sharma winning the toss and electing to bat first. There's just one change for South Africa, with Tabraiz Shamsi coming in to add an extra spin option.
It's set to be an unmissable group game. So if you're not sure of your best options for getting an India vs South Africa live stream, we have all the details you need on this page, including how to watch the Cricket World Cup 2023 online from anywhere in the world.
