South Africa look to maintain their perfect start to the Cricket World Cup when they face the Netherlands in Dharamsala on Tuesday (9.30am BST).

The Proteas are full of momentum having opened the tournament with a pair of commanding victories by over 100 points against Sri Lanka – knocking the highest total of the tournament so far with 428 – and Australia.

Meanwhile, the Dutch are awaiting lift-off in the competition after suffering back-to-back defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand.

South Africa’s strong start to the tournament has been aided in no small part by Quinton de Kock, who has hit successive centuries.

The wicket-keeper-batter opened with 100 from 84 balls against Sri Lanka, before knocking 109 off 106 balls against Australia.

That victory over the Australians was also achieved thanks to an impressive performance by Kagiso Rabada with the ball.

The fast bowler recorded 3/33 and has now claimed five wickets in two innings so far.
