Champions Trophy: South Africa put 191 on board against India

LONDON: South Africa were bowled out for 191 in 44.3 overs at The Oval in their match against South Africa. 

Indian skipper Virat Kohli has won the toss and chose to bowl first at the crucial knockout game against South Africa. The winner of the India vs South Africa will take on Bangladesh in the semi-final.
