ICC World Cup 2019: England beat South Africa by 104 runs in opener
England got the cricket world cup underway with a win against South Africa at the Oval. Out for a duck with just one run on the scoreboard, it was a start to forget for Jonny Bairstow. Joe Root got England up and running, before Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes took charge. England posted a target of 312 in 50 overs. Quinton de Kock turned into the main man racking up 68 runs but South Africa never really recovered. They were dismissed for 207 in less than 40 overs.
