Melbourne : The captain of indian cricket team MS Dhoni has won the toss and choose to bat first against South Africa. India aim to turn the tables as they play against South Africa in the Cricket World Cup, in Melbourne today.

India have never beaten South Africa at a World Cup, losing all three in 1992, 1999 and 2011. They will be desperate to halt that today. All those 3 games have seen South Africa chasing down the target successfully.

Buoyed by their overwhelming victory against arch-rivals Pakistan in the opening game, India aim to victory. While Pakistan failed to buck the trend against the defending champions for the sixth time, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men will hope that they turn fourth time lucky after losing to South Africa on three previous editions at the mega event in 1992, 1999 and 2011.

Whether it is Peter Kirsten in 92, Jacques Kallis in 99 or Kallis and AB de Villiers in 2011, India have always found a Protea batsman, who had turned out to be a thorn in the flesh for them.

Master batsman Virat Kohli and fast-bowling ace Dale Steyn put their friendship to one side on Sunday when defending champions India tackle South Africa in a World Cup blockbuster in front of 80,000 people in Melbourne.

India and South Africa, two of the favourites for the title, go into the Pool B clash at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground with opening wins under their belts - India beating arch-rivals Pakistan by 76 runs while the Proteas clinched a 62-run victory over neighbours Zimbabwe.
