South Africa have the opportunity to top of Group B when they play their second match at the ICC Cricket World Cup against the Netherlands at Mohali on Thursday. This is one of the few day games at the tournament and will start at 6am (CAT).
India and England are both on three points following their tied match at the weekend while the Proteas are currently on two from their single outing against the West Indies. There is a sub-plot for the Proteas in that victory by a convincing margin would strengthen their run rate. A strong positive run rate could be worth an extra log point at the end of the group stage.
