Bangladesh are searching for a second straight win.

A second win in the tournament is on offer for both New Zealand and Bangladesh as they lock horns in a 2019 ICC World Cup clash at the Oval, London.

New Zealand come into the clash on the back of a thumping 10-wicket rout of Sri Lanka in their World Cup campaign opener.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, stunned a formidable South Africa in their first match of the tournament and will be looking to make another giant killing.

Will the Kiwis prove to be too strong for Bangladesh or will the Tigers follow up their South Africa display with another win? Find out by following the ball-by-ball commentary from the Oval below.

South Africa fielded two spinners for their World Cup clash with India in Southampton.

The Proteas won the toss and opted to bat, with captain Faf Du Plessis taking a gutsy approach in response to consecutive losses to England and Bangladesh.

South Africa have never opened a World Cup with three consecutive defeats and faced a severe test of their injury-hit resources against much-fancied India.

Dale Steyn was ruled out of the entire tournament on Tuesday, having suffered a fresh shoulder injury.

The veteran paceman joined fellow seamer Lungi Ngidi on the sidelines, leaving the Proteas struggling for bowling options.

Du Plessis picked both Imran Tahir and Tabraiz Shamsi in a bold twin spin attack, while India were hoping their delayed start to the tournament would allow them to ease their way into proceedings.

Who will prevail on Wednesday? Catch the live updates below.

India skipper Virat Kohli

India captain Virat Kohli says he hasn’t heard any criticism directed at him by South Africa paceman Kagiso Rabada, and he wouldn’t use a news conference as a forum to air it anyway.

On the eve of India’s tournament-opening match against South Africa, Kohli was asked about comments reportedly from Rabada that described him as immature.

“What did he say?” Kohli asked. When given the general sentiment, Kohli responded by saying: “I’ve played against him so many times. If anything needs to be discussed, we can discuss it man to man.”

They’ll get the chance on Wednesday when Kohli leads No2-ranked India and Rabada leads an injury-depleted South Africa bowling attack in Southampton.
