SOUTHAMPTON – Virat Kohli’s India will unleash their formidable pace attack against beleaguered South Africa when the title contenders open their World Cup campaign on Wednesday.
India are the last of the 10 teams to launch their challenge in England and Wales and they start against a South Africa side already in turmoil after losing their first two matches.
The two-time world champions plan to push South Africa towards elimination in Southampton by deploying a feared bowling line-up led by Jasprit Bumrah, the top-ranked one-day international bowler in the world.
Bumrah is ably supported by fellow quicks Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya.
Wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal lend variety to India’s attack, but their primary weapon in seaming English conditions will be the pace bowlers.
“Bowling is going to be India’s strength,” former batsman Sanjay Manjrekar told AFP.
“India would be favourites alongside Australia and England. New Zealand are the dark horses. The rest are all underdogs.”
Kohli, in his first 50-over World Cup as captain, is the key to India’s batting, with his 10,843 runs in 227 ODI matches at an average of 59.57.
The 30-year-old’s importance to India is not lost on South African pace bowler Kagiso Rabada, who tried some mind games ahead of their potentially feisty clash when he called the skipper “very immature”.
“I was just thinking about the game plan, really, but Virat, he hit me for a boundary and then he had a word (during an Indian Premier League game). And then when you give it back to him, he gets angry,” Rabada told cricinfo.
“I don’t get the guy. Maybe he does it because it gets him going, but that comes across as very immature for me. He is a phenomenal player but he can’t take the abuse.”
‘Strange things happen’
Rabada leads South Africa’s injury-hit pace attack, with Lungi Ngidi sidelined after suffering a hamstring strain in Sunday’s defeat against Bangladesh.
Veteran paceman Dale Steyn is also a doubt after missing the first two games with a shoulder injury.
But Faf du Plessis’s side expect to be bolstered by the return of batting star Hashim Amla, who missed the last game after being hit on the head by a Jofra Archer bouncer against England.
Thrashed by England in their tournament opener, the Proteas’ 21-run defeat against Bangladesh at the Oval has put them in a perilous position.
But South Africa all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo is confident his team can still make amends for their wretched start.
“There have been some bad days in my career. I’ve learned, and the team has learned, that it is not the end of the world,” the 23-year-old said.
“We can always bounce back, we are a team that bounces back, from situations and we will definitely do it again.”
South Africa great Jaques Kallis believes taking advantage of potential first-match rustiness from India could be his former team’s best hope of getting back on track.
“It doesn’t get any easier against India but it’s their first game and our third, so maybe that could give us the edge we need,” Kallis said.
“Strange things happen in this sport and if we can get a win then I think we are still good enough to be a contender.”
SOUTHAMPTON – Flamboyant all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been tipped as India’s potential “X-factor” at the World Cup with his ability to change games single-handedly with both bat and ball.
An attacking middle-order batsman, medium-fast bowler and quick in the field, the 25-year-old is preparing for his World Cup bow against South Africa after an impressive campaign in the Indian Premier League.
Pandya, who cuts a striking figure with his tattoos, mohawk haircut and earrings, was suspended earlier this year over sexist remarks on a TV chat show.
But after apologising and missing several internationals he returned to the national team and caught the eye in the IPL for Mumbai Indians, who won a fourth title.
Singled out by Rahul Dravid as having the “X-factor” just a year after his debut, Pandya, who first played for India in 2016, has won praise from a clutch of former cricketers.
“Hardik’s form in the IPL has been outstanding and he can be a game-changer for India,” former India captain Sunil Gavaskar told AFP. ”He is very, very impressive.”
“There is no one even close to Hardik Pandya’s talent with both bat and ball,” former India opener Virender Sehwag told cricketnext website.
Former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd, who won the World Cup twice, predicted that all-rounders would play a crucial role at the tournament in England and Wales.
“From Afghanistan to England, or from India to West Indies, every team is blessed with top-class all-rounders – that’s why I believe it will be an all-rounders’ World Cup.”
Pandya’s impressive limited-overs performances earned him a first Test cap in 2017 and he justified his selection with a century and fifty in the three-match series in Sri Lanka that India won 3-0.
He has been compared with Kapil Dev, who was one of the top players in a golden era for all-rounders also including Pakistan’s Imran Khan, Richard Hadlee of New Zealand and England’s Ian Botham.

But Dev has cautioned the media and fans not to burden the young talent with the pressure of expectations.
“He is an upcoming player…. Please do not put pressure on him,” he said. “He is a young talent — let him play his cricket with his own free mind.”
Former Australia bowler Andy Bichel said Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja will hold the aces for India in the middle overs in seaming English conditions.
“Jadeja and Hardik Pandya have to perform if India are going to do a job,” said Bichel, who was part of Australia’s World Cup-winning team in 2003.
“Because there are going to be those middle overs where the games will be won or lost,” the cricketer-turned-analyst added.
We are halfway through the year and it’s the perfect time to rejuvenate both your body and soul. In Cape Town we are spoiled for choice when it comes to spas, aesthetic clinics and beauty parlors, offering the latest technology in beauty and aesthetics. I recently visited the latest addition to the beauty scene Meraki Aesthetics that is situated at the trendy Battery Park, at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
Founded by Leigh O’Connell and Nadine Adams the Meraki offers a calm and stress-free environment. The space is sparsely decorated and is built in accordance with the Green Star Office Tool, and prides itself on having a minimal impact on the environment.
“The products used in our practice contain no ingredients that contaminate water for recycling and we heat our water individually when needed so that we don’t waste this valuable resource waiting for it to run hot." explains O’Connell. Meraki is a strictly no plastic bottle or straw environment… single-use items are highly discouraged.
When it comes to facial products, they like their products the way they like their beauty routine, uncomplicated and effective.
“We believe that science and nature go together like cake and chocolate, we believe in proven scientific results and we believe in not adding any unnecessary ingredients or routines to our lives. If we don’t personally use it, see results and love it, then it won’t make our team," adds Adams.
RELAX: The 45-minute hot stone therapy massage (R580) left me relaxed and rejuvenated. Supplied picture.
Facial: Since the beauty industry is obsessed with everything collagen, I had a 90 minute collagen rejuvenation treatment (R950). My main skin concern is dryness and collagen increases skin hydration, among other benefits. The results were immediate, my face looked visibly hydrated afterwards. It also felt soft and supple.
Massage: The 45-minute hot stone therapy massage (R580) was very relaxing and rejuvenating… I felt so light afterwards.
Overall experience: The salon offers a variety of treatments, from advanced facial treatments to massages, waxing, manicures and pedicures, catering for both males and females.The therapist is available to answer all your questions and recommend a treatment if you are not sure what to do. I loved the fact that even though Meraki is in the middle of the city’s bustle and hustle, the inside is quiet and serene.
What’s missing: Toilet facilities:I didn’t enjoy that halfway through the treatment I had to get fully dressed and walk outside to the toilet passing a busy strip.
Michael Kors says laughter is the key to beauty and he attributes Kate Moss’ success to her sense of fun.
The 59-year-old designer is a close friend of supermodel Kate Moss, 45, and he attributes her huge success to her sense of fun.
He told The Observer: "No one ever looks more fabulous or more beautiful than at the moment they start laughing uncontrollably. It’s better than a facelift!
"People think of chic as something that’s quite serious, but it’s not true. All the chicest women I have ever known have had a great sense of humour. Like Kate [Moss]. So chic! And she loves to have fun."
Michael also defended fashion against accusations it is "trivial" and explained that the right outfit can instantly give someone more confidence.
He said: "Is fashion trivial? I don’t know. I know that the world is a complicated place. But I take myself back to the fact that when I watch a man or a woman try five things on, there will be one piece that makes him or her sort of stand differently, when they look in the mirror. The attitude changes, the confidence changes. Your whole day changes. I believe in the magic of the right thing. And I love that fashion can give you hope."
Meanwhile, earlier this year, Michael revealed his spring campaign was inspired by 22-year-old Bella Hadid’s "casual glamour".
The campaign was based on the "connectivity" of the younger generation, as well as the relaxed beauty of the model and other influential female celebrities.
He said: "People Bella’s age, the whole idea for them is not just the actual physical travel, they’re always on the move, whether it’s physically going to a new place or also [being active].
"I mean, Liz Taylor and Sophia Loren were not kickboxing. Nor were they attached to their phones 24/7. That connectivity — the younger you get, the more extreme it gets. So we wanted to sort of capture all of that movement that is part of today’s culture.
"Bella or her sister [Gigi] or Blake Lively or Rihanna or Taylor [Swift], they’re casual. They’re glamorous and casual, so we had to somehow get all of that into it."
THE family of iconic musician and trumpeter Hugh Masekela gathered for the unveiling of the Hugh Masekela Memorial Pavilion at Westpark Cemetery in Joburg on Saturday.
The proceedings started with cultural chants led by the family, who had gathered around the arcade. The structure was designed by British architect Sir David Adjaye, who declared that the family wanted to create something special for Masekela, whom he described as a “huge creative force and inspiration”.
“Hugh was such a huge spirit for me, a huge creative force and inspiration. We worked with the Design Indaba team who Hugh had a very long relationship with, who connected to me and I met the family. I had been doing small works in Joburg, so I had a team here and got it together to work on this pavilion.”
Adjaye added that they wanted to dignify the late jazz legend, creating a shrine for an African king.
“We’ve brought four stones from corners of the continent, the north-east, north-west, the south and the centre, to the pavilion.
"Those are the stones you will see inscribed with Hugh’s name," he said.
The pavilion’s canopy reflects not just the sky but also the idea of gathering under a tree. It is the drawing of sunlight through a beautiful tree.
The legendary jazz musician died in Johannesburg in the early morning of January 23, 2018, of prostate cancer, aged 78. He was diagnosed with the disease in 2008. Cancer took a significant toll on the musician in 2016 after it spread and he had to have eye surgery done in March of that year.
In January 2018, Masekela’s death was announced to the world.
The unveiling ceremony was attended by many dignitaries, including former National Assembly speaker Baleka Mbete, veteran musician Abigail Kubeka and actress Thembi Mtshali, among others.

CAPE TOWN – Junior Springbok coach Chean Roux has named three uncapped players in his run-on side for their World Rugby Under-20 Championship opener against Scotland in Argentina today (kick-off 3.30pm).
Vaughen Isaacs, Angelo Davids and Dian Bleuler will make their Junior Springbok debuts at the Racecourse Stadium in Rosario, with Keagan Glade also set to earn his first cap if he comes off the bench.
While it will be his international bow in Fifteens, Davids, wing, made his Springbok Sevens debut in Hong Kong earlier this year, and it didn’t take him long to shine on the circuit.
All 28 squad members were named in the match-day squad. However, only eight players on the expanded bench will be allowed to take to the field as replacements.
“We were lucky enough to play with most of these combinations during our UK tour,” said Roux. “A few players joined us after the tour, but we have been training for the last 10 days with the starting team in mind, so the combinations are working well.
“There is a lot of excitement in the group, and the players cannot wait to take to the field. We have been preparing for the tournament for a while now, so it time to get to down to business and start playing.”
The challenge the Scots will present at the set-piece is one thing, but it’s not the only area Roux wants his team to watch out for.
“Scotland are a well-drilled team,” said Roux.
“They were unlucky in one or two U20 Six Nations matches, so one cannot read too much into that tournament. Their preparation has been good coming into the competition, and they are a well-coached side, so we need to be up for the challenge come game time.”
“We have worked hard on set phases, so hopefully we will be able to execute that well and give our backs a good platform to attack from. It is also vital to take our point-scoring chances when they arise.”
A good start will be crucial, as only the top team in each of the three pools and the next best-placed team in terms of log points will advance to the semi-finals.
The Junior Springboks will face Georgia in their second pool match on Saturday, June 8, and will wrap up the pool stages against New Zealand on Wednesday, June 12. Both matches will be played at the Racecourse Stadium.
LONDON – There will be no hysterics from Ottis Gibson in the Proteas dressing room over the next couple of days. That he will leave to “I’m certainly not Mr Nice Guy” captain Faf du Plessis.
Gibson will instead look to motivate, cajole, and try to rebuild the fragile confidence of a group of players that seem shell-shocked after two defeats at this World Cup.
So what exactly is the message that Gibson will be conveying to his charges?
“You keep telling them how good they are, you go back to our best experiences,” Gibson said.
“We’ve won eight or nine of our last 10 games, with the guys in the dressing room you keep reminding them of that and keep showing them what they’ve done in our recent history.”
“There’s no anger in me,” he added. “It’s cricket we’re playing, and in sport there’s nothing that says you are going to win because you might be the favourite. We just need to put it together and we know we can put it together.
“If we can get it together in the next week or the next game and we start to get some momentum, it will give us a lot of confidence.
“You don’t become a bad team overnight because you lost two games. That’s the message.”
If there is someone who could benefit from an arm around the shoulder instead of a rollicking right now it’s Kagiso Rabada.
Thus far in the World Cup South Africa’s spearhead has been a shadow of the bowler that has terrorised batting line-ups all around the world over the past few years.
The exertions of the Indian Premier League, where Rabada was the leading wicket-taker until teammate Imran Tahir pipped him at the post, may be taking its toll on the 24-year-old, but the Proteas desperately need their talisman firing on all cylinders, especially with the juggernaut Indian batting line-up waiting here in Southampton.
“He’s not striking, not taking wickets like we know he can,” Gibson said. “I’m sure he’s hurting because he doesn’t want to be the best bowler in South Africa, he wants to be the best bowler in the world.
“At the moment, when he sees the impact Jofra Archer is having, people like that, I am sure he will want to have his own impact and leave his own mark on the World Cup. There’s still time,” Gibson said.
Rabada definitely won’t have Ngidi on the other end to help him attack the likes of Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. And he is unlikely to have Dale Steyn either.
Gibson did not want to dwell on the negatives for too long though. Instead he pointed out that even the best get knocked down – like English heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua – but they find ways to get up again.
“Look at Anthony Joshua last night, he was the favourite and he got put on the floor.
“I’m sure he’s going to get up and go on to his next fight, and probably win. We must look at that, get ourselves up off the floor, dust ourselves off and put our best game out on the field.
“Losing early isn’t always a bad thing when you are learning and improving,” he said.
“Because when you lose in the last week, you’re going home. At the moment we’ve lost two games and were hurting, but we still have the opportunity to play better.
“If you are going to lose, it’s better to lose now than in the first week of July.
PARIS – Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are closing in on a dream Roland Garros semi-final clash but standing in their way are Kei Nishikori and Stan Wawrinka.
AFP Sport looks at Tuesday’s first two quarter-finals:
Rafael Nadal (ESP x2) v Kei Nishikori (JPN x7)
Head-to-head: Nadal leads 10-2
– Nadal, the defending champion who turned 33 on Monday, racked up his 90th career win at Roland Garros when he swept past Juan Ignacio Londero in the last-16.
The 11-time winner has dropped just one set so far in his third round win over tricky Belgian David Goffin.
“When I was 18, thinking that I could still be here at the age of 33, it was probably something incredible and impossible to think about,” said Nadal, who made his Paris debut back in 2005 and is seeking his 12th semi-final spot.
While Nadal is in the quarter-finals in Paris for the 13th time, it will be a third appearance for Nishikori.
The Japanese star has had to come back from being a break down in the final set of his last two matches, both of which went to five sets.
He has lost all four of his career meetings with Nadal on clay.
“It’s going to be a tough match, he’s the greatest ever clay court player,” said Nishikori.
Roger Federer (SUI x3) v Stan Wawrinka (SUI x24)
Head-to-head: Federer leads 22-3
– The two close friends have won 2008 Olympic gold and 2014 Davis Cup gold together.
On Tuesday, Federer looks to avenge just one of his three career losses to his compatriot which he suffered in the quarter-finals of Roland Garros in 2005.
“I have a bad memory of it. Stan beat me in three sets with his terrible shorts,” said Federer in reference to Wawrinka’s gaudy, checked shorts.
That defeat prompted Federer to call time on his French Open career until he decided to return this year.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion is the oldest Slam quarter-finalist in 28 years and will be playing in his 54th last-eight match at a Slam.
Wawrinka needed over five hours to see off sixth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round and he has spent almost twice the time on court getting this far than Federer.
“I didn’t beat him many times in my career, but I did once here, so I still do remember that time and was a special day for me,” said 34-year-old Wawrinka.
This time last year, three-time major winner Wawrinka slipped out of the world’s top 250 in the world after a first round loss in Paris.
Having undergone two knee surgeries in 2017, many in the sport thought he was done and dusted.
CAPE TOWN – Injuries shouldn’t be too big a factor for the Stormers against the Sunwolves this weekend.
That’s what tighthead prop Wilco Louw believes as the team prepare to go into their second-last Super Rugby pool game on Saturday as the intense run to the playoffs gets even hotter.
Both Eben Etzebeth and Cobus Wiese were added to the Stormers’ injury list during their loss to the Lions last weekend, a result which enabled the Johannesburg team to leapfrog both the Stormers and Sharks in the South African conference.
Captain Siya Kolisi, Pieter-Steph du Toit and Kobus van Dyk are already on the sidelines, and it’s an injury wave that’s come at the worst possible time.
It is suspected that Etzebeth broke his hand, while Kolisi’s knee injury will keep him out for six weeks.
But it’s part of the game and not something the Stormers should allow themselves to be restricted by, the Springbok front-rower said yesterday.
“I think it was a bit of a disruption, but it’s behind us now. That’s the game…there are going to be injuries, there can be injuries this week, there can be injuries next week. It is part of the game. We just have to adapt,” he said.
The Stormers’ performance against the Lions was not one any team vying for a wildcard spot would be proud of.
They were poor in defence and at times made it just too easy for the hosts when it came to turnovers.
The scrum is another area that should go in for repairs this week.
For Louw, the set-piece will of course be particularly important against the Japanese outfit.
“Every game is important. We disappointed ourselves a bit this past weekend, but we’re moving forward and we know the Sunwolves are a good team.
“They have a good scrum and good attack, they’ve also been doing well this season, so it’s going to be a good one. We pride ourselves on our scrum and we couldn’t be proud of our latest performance, so we need to fix it.
“We had reasonable attack but I think our defence was a bit of a let-down. So we need to get it right this week, get off the line quicker and make some dominant tackles.”

While Louw was right in saying injuries are part of the game of rugby, the Stormers’ series of injury blows can hurt them. They can’t afford to make things any harder for themselves by not getting the basics right.
They can still make the play-offs, but two victories will be key, while they’ll also have to hope other results go their way.
The Stormers are bottom of the South African conference on 30 points, while the Sharks (30 – but superior point difference) and the Bulls (33) will also be aiming to fight hard. The Lions are second (35), with the Jaguares leading (41).
In terms of motivation, the Stormers are all in, according to Louw.
“We can definitely still make it. We don’t doubt that at all. The next two games are crucial. We don’t play rugby to lose, we play to win..
“The Highveld hits the lungs, so we’re looking forward to being back at home.”

PARIS – Amanda Anisimova, just 17, on Monday became the first player born in the 2000s to reach a Grand Slam quarter-final but now comes the hardest part – facing Simona Halep, the defending champion at Roland Garros.
American-born with Russian-born parents, the blonde teenager swept to a 6-3, 6-0 win over Spanish qualifier Aliona Bolsova.
Having already announced herself on the Grand Slam stage by making the last-16 at the Australian Open in January, she will comfortably make the top 40 after the end of the French Open.
She is one of three American women to reach the last-eight in Paris but unlike her more seasoned colleagues Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys, she has yet to drop a set.
Anisimova appreciates the daunting task ahead of her on Wednesday when she takes on Halep, the third seed.
On Monday, the Romanian needed just 45 minutes to demolish Polish teenager Iga Swiatek in her last 16 tie.
“I was watching Simona before my match and then I was, like, Oh, my God, her backhand down the line is so good and she was taking her time, and then I think I was mimicking it in my match,” Anisimova admitted.
Anisimova is the youngest American woman to get to the last 16 in Paris since Serena Williams in 1998.
When she won her maiden WTA title in Bogota earlier this year, she was the youngest American to do so since Serena captured the Indian Wells trophy 20 years ago.
“I feel like it’s been building up. I don’t really feel like I’m young. I had Indian Wells last year. That was kind of more surprising to me,” said Anisimova of her run to the fourth round in the Californian desert in 2018.
It took current world number two Karolina Pliskova to stop her run then before a serious foot injury ended her hopes of taking part in the clay court season.
Halep will bring her heavy weapons to the quarter-final on Wednesday.
She has reeled off 16 breaks of serve in her last three matches at Roland Garros.
Unlike Anisimova, Halep was a late bloomer at the Slams, not reaching her first quarter-final until the 2014 Australian Open when she was 22.
Since that time, she has made another 11.
“When I was 17 I was not on Court Philippe Chatrier, I was in quallies here,” said the Romanian. “I didn’t know how to win matches at 17. My career went slowly, so I it enjoyed more. I was patient, I worked hard.
“So I’m happy with the way it was and the way it is now. Because I have many years in the top, and I’m really pleased with the effort I have done these years.”
“I feel very old. To play against someone 10 years younger than me, that’s not easy.”
June is Pride Month and I thought we could start off with a breakdown of what the definitions are for the different Sexual Orientations and Gender Terminology. The following info is courtesy of sexinfo.online
Gender: A complex interrelationship between an individual’s biological gender, gender identity, and gender expression.
Biological sex: Refers to the biological anatomy that is assigned at birth and determines whether an individual is male (has a penis), female (has a vagina), or intersex.
Cisgender: an individual who’s sexual orientation, gender orientation/expression matches their biological sex assigned at birth.
