The excitement level is all time high as Virat Kohli and his 'Men in Blue' are all set to begin their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign on June 5 against South Africa. This will be the 8th match of the tournament so far. The South Africa vs India match will be played at The Rose Bowl, also known as The Ageas Bowl. Located in Southampton, it was established in 2001 with a capacity of 6,500 people. However it can accommodate up to 20,000 people with temporary seating.

Out of it, 10 matches were won by the home team, 7 were won by the touring team and the 5 were won by neutral teams.
