How can I watch the Proteas v India at the 2023 Cricket World Cup?

The Proteas will face their toughest test of the 2023 Cricket World Cup so far when they face India on Sunday.

Barring a mathematical miracle, both teams have already booked themselves a place in the semi-finals of the global showpiece, though their position within the top four places on the points table is yet to be decided. 

Nonetheless, Temba Bavuma's men will be eager to continue their fine form against the undefeated hosts on the hallowed turf of the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata, India's oldest cricket ground.

Thanks to a deal between the SABC and MultiChoice, fans can watch the action live on SABC or stream right here on for free. 

The South Africans are coming off a dominant 190-run win over perennial contenders New Zealand

Surprisingly put into bat by the Blacks Caps, Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen delivered measured performances on their way to centuries, while some late swashbuckling from David Miller took the Proteas to an impressive 357/4. 

Beanpole Marco Jansen again impressed with the ball, finishing with 3/31 while Keshav Maharaj spun his web of deceit to pick up 4/46 and wrap up the New Zealand innings.

Meanwhile, the Indian juggernaut looks near unstoppable on home soil. 

The hosts decimated sub-continental rivals Sri Lanka by an incredible 302 runs on Thursday. 

After posting 357, a sizzling spell from veteran paceman Mohammed Shami earned him match-winning figures of 5/18 as Sri Lanka tumbled for just 55.

The South African batters will have their work cut out against the esteemed Indian attack. 

Shami has picked up 14 wickets at a scarcely believable average of 6.71, while the awkward Jasprit Bumrah has 15 scalps at a tidy 14.60. 

In addition, captain Rohit Sharma and crowd-favourite Virat Kohli are among the leading run scorers for the tournament.

For the Proteas, the tournament's leading run-scorer, de Kock, has been relentless with the bat at the top of the order, notching up four hundreds at an average of 77.85. 

Heinrich Klaasen has also continued his form, with his 315 runs coming at an impressive strike rate of 151.44.

If India strike early with the ball, all-rounder Jansen will play a vital role in the lower order.
