12th edition of ICC Cricket World Cup begins in the United Kingdom. In the opener at London, hosts England beat South Africa by 104 runs.

England have defeated South Africa by 104 runs in the opening match of the World Cup at the Oval in London.

 The 104-run win has given them a massive boost in terms of Net Run Rate right at the outset of their campaign, and Eoin Morgan's men will hope to keep the party going when they take on Pakistan at Trent Bridge on Monday.

 South Africa have to try hard and put this embarrassing loss behind and start afresh when they take on Bangladesh this Sunday at the same venue.

 For the next match, West Indies and Pakistan will face each other at Trent Bridge on Friday.
