India secured an early victory over South Africa in their group stage match of the Titans World Cup in Calcutta.

The hosts won the toss and opted to bat at Eden Gardens, where chasing proved to be extremely difficult.

It also ensures that South Africa will not be able to post a huge total after being sent to bat, as has happened so far in the tournament.

Both countries have already secured their places in the World Cup semi-finals, with India 7-0 and South Africa 6-1, with just two matches apiece remaining in the group stage.

Australia, who are 5-2 after beating England on Saturday evening, will likely face the loser of tonight’s match in a semi-final.

Indian Virat Kohli turned 35 on Sunday and the star batsman’s legion of fans will be hoping he can mark the occasion by equaling Sachin Tendulkar’s international one-day record of 49 hundreds after falling just short with 88 against Sri Lanka.

South Africa made just one change to the side that overwhelmed New Zealand by 190 runs in Pune on Wednesday, with left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi taking the place of pacer Gerald Coetzee.

India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wkt), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj

South Africa: Quinton de Kock (wkt), Temba Bavuma (captain), Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi
