WATCH: South Africa thrashed by England by 104 runs

#ICCWC2019: Opener Quinton de Kock’s valiant 68 and Rassie van der Dussen’s half-century went in vain as South Africa succumbed at 207 runs in reply to England’s 311 in the tournament opener of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the Kennington Oval on Thursday.

It was some disciplined bowling by the hosts which helped them garner an impressive 104 run win as Jofra Archer picked three wickets while conceding 27 runs from seven overs while Liam Plunkett and Ben Stokes also supported him by bagging a couple of wickets each as the trio dismantled the Protean middle order.

Brief scores: England 311/8 (Ben Stokes 89, Eoin Morgan 57; Lungi Ngidi /66) beat South Africa 207 all out (Quinton de Kock 68, Rassie van der Dussen 50; Jofra Archer 3/27) by 104 runs
