South Africa reached 28-0 from five overs as Gary Kirsten and Herschelle Gibbs begun their side's chase for the 279 they need to win the opening World Cup Group B match against West Indies on Sunday.

Gibbs was on 16 from 19 deliveries, which included three boundaries. Kirsten was also on the attack with run-a-ball 11.

Earlier, Brian Lara made a masterful 116 as West Indies recovered from the loss of two early wickets to post a total of 278-5 from 50 overs.

After West Indies had slumped to 7-2, Lara and Shivnarine Chanderpaul shared a third-wicket partnership of 102 before captain Carl Hooper (40) added a run-a-ball 89 with the left-hander.

Lara reached his 16th one-day century and Ricardo Powell (40 not out from 18 balls) and Ramnaresh Sarwan (32) shared an explosive unbroken sixth-wicket partnership of 63 as West Indies plundered 110 runs off the last 10 overs.

Innings: Windies ride on Lara's ton to post 279

Brian Lara made 116 as West Indies recovered from the loss of two early wickets to post a very competitive total of 279-5 from 50 overs in the opening World Cup Group B match against South Africa on Sunday.

South Africa captain Shaun Pollock, who lost the toss, gave the tournament hosts a perfect start when he had Wavell Hinds caught by wicketkeeper Mark Boucher for nought before bowling Chris Gayle to leave West Indies reeling at 7-2.

But Lara, dropped first ball, and Shivnarine Chanderpaul rescued the damage, starting cautiously before increasing the run rate to take their third-wicket partnership to 102.

Although Chanderpaul fell to Lance Klusener for 34, captain Carl Hooper joined Lara in a run-a-ball stand of 89 and the left-hander reached his 100 with a glance to third man off Kallis.

Ricardo Powell (41 not out) and Ramnaresh Sarwan (32) then shared an explosive unbroken sixth-wicket partnership of 64 to lift West Indies well past 250.

46 overs: Lara departs after putting WI incharge

Brian Lara struck a polished century as West Indies recovered from the loss of two early wickets to reach 223 for five from 46 overs against South Africa.

Shaun Pollock, who lost the toss, gave the tournament hosts a perfect start when he had Wavell Hinds caught by wicketkeeper Mark Boucher for nought before bowling Chris Gayle to leave West Indies reeling at 7-2.

But Lara, dropped first ball, and Shivnarine Chanderpaul rescued the damage, starting cautiously before increasing the run rate to take their third-wicket partnership to 102.

Lara smashed Donald straight for the first six of the tournament.

Although Chanderpaul fell to Lance Klusener for 34, captain Carl Hooper joined Lara in a run-a-ball stand of 89 and the left-hander reached his second World Cup century with a glance to third man off Kallis.

Hooper fell for 40 when he holed out to Kallis at deep mid-wicket, and soon after Lara departed for 116 when he top-edged a delivery to Pollock. Mkhaya Ntini grabbed both these batsmen.

Ricardo Powell was unbeaten on 16, while Ramnaresh Sarwan was on 1.

42 overs: Lara puts WI back on track with century

Brian Lara completed a century as West Indies recovered from the loss of two early wickets to reach 187 for three from 42 overs.

South Africa captain Shaun Pollock, who lost the toss, gave the tournament hosts a perfect start when he had Wavell Hinds caught by wicketkeeper Mark Boucher for nought before bowling Chris Gayle to leave West Indies reeling at 7-2.

But Lara, dropped first ball, and Shivnarine Chanderpaul rescued the damage, starting cautiously before taking their third-wicket partnership to 102.

Lara smashed Allan Donald straight for the first six of the tournament, and not long after that reached his 50 from 78 balls with a trademark cover drive to the boundary.

In Pollock's third over Hinds snicked a ball outside off-stump and Boucher held a routine catch.

31 overs: Windies mount recovery with Lara's half-century

Brian Lara reached his half-century in a 102-run partnership with Shivnarine Chanderpaul before Lance Klusener interrupted.

After 31 overs, West Indies had partially recovered from their early setbacks to reach 110 for three.

Chanderpaul (34) tried to run a delivery down to fine leg, but ended up getting a fine edge through to Mark Boucher.

Lara smashed Klusener through the covers in the 29th over to bring up his half-century in style. He looked in great knick and was unbeaten on 64 from 88 deliveries.

Skipper Carl Hooper had just arrived at the crease and was on one.

17 overs: Lara, Chanderpaul struggle against tight SA bowling

Brian Lara and Shivnarine Chanderpaul continued to struggle in the face of some accurate seam bowling by South Africa.

West Indies crawled to 36 for two when the umpires called for drinks, after 17 overs in their Group B encounter.

Lara was at the crease on 12 from 37 deliveries, while Chanderpaul was on 18.

Allan Donald replaced skipper Shaun Pollock in the 13th over and Chanderpaul drove him straight for the first boundary of the tournament.

Both the wickets were picked up by Pollock.

7 overs: Pollock's double-strike as SA grab early initiative

South Africa captain Shaun Pollock took the first two wickets of the World Cup as West Indies slumped to 7 for two after seven overs of the opening Group B match on Sunday.

Pollock had Wavell Hinds caught by wicketkeeper Mark Boucher for nought before bowling Chris Gayle.

The first two runs of the tournament were wides by South Africa fast bowler Makhaya Ntini after the first three overs were maidens. Gayle chopped Pollock to third man for the first run off the bat in the fifth over.

Pollock bowled the first ball of the World Cup to Gayle under cloudless blue skies at Newlands after West Indies captain Carl Hooper had won the toss.

Brian Lara had an early scare, when he fended at his first ball from Ntini and Jacques Kallis just failed to hold a one-handed catch at second slip.

5 overs: Pollock draws first blood in World Cup 2003

South African skipper Shaun Pollock claimed the first wicket of the World Cup in the fifth over of the opening Group B match against West Indies.

Wavell Hinds (0) fell victim to Pollock when the West Indian opener pushed at a delivery just short of length, edging it into the safe hands of Mark Boucher.

The hosts bowled a tight line in the initial overs as West Indies struggled to 4 for the loss of one wicket from five overs.

The first run of the World Cup was a wide by Makhaya Ntini after the first three overs were maidens.

South Africa captain Shaun Pollock bowled the first ball of the tournament to West Indies batsman Chris Gayle under cloudless blue skies at Newlands after West Indies captain Carl Hooper had won the toss.

Ntini then bowled a maiden to Wavell Hinds, who failed to hit any of the six deliveries, before Pollock produced another maiden to Gayle.

Both sides were at full strength, with South Africa opting to include left-arm spinner Nicky Boje and West Indies choosing six specialist batsman and omitting fast bowler Jermaine Lawson.

Toss: West Indies bats first in opening match

West Indies captain Carl Hooper won the toss and elected to bat at Newlands in the opening match of the World Cup against host nation South Africa.

Hooper said the West Indies management had decided not to risk batsman Marlon Samuels in the opening game after he had flown in late to return to the squad having initially been withdrawn because of a knee injury.

Although storm clouds remained over England's decision whether to play its opening game in politically volatile Zimbabwe on Thursday, the opening game began under a blue sky at Cape Town.

It was due to end under floodlights with the first match of the 14-team, 54-game championship being a day/night match.

South African captain Shaun Pollock said it was a toss he would like to have won, but said he felt comfortable going into the opening match with a very settled team.

The pitch at Newlands appeared to be a good batting track, and groundsman Christo Erasmus said he believed it was a 250-run pitch. Newlands has been notoriously difficult to bat on after dark, with many teams batting second struggling.

South Africa: Herschelle Gibbs, Gary Kirsten, Boeta Dippenaar, Jacques Kallis, Jonty Rhodes, Mark Boucher, Lance Klusener, Shaun Pollock (captain), Nicky Boje, Allan Donald, Makhaya Ntini.

West Indies: Chris Gayle, Wavell Hinds, Brian Lara, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Carl Hooper (captain), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Ricardo Powell, Ridley Jacobs, Vasbert Drakes, Mervyn Dillon, Pedro Collins.

Umpires: Srinivas Venkatarghavan (India) and Daryl Haper (Australia).

TV umpire: Peter Willey (England).

Match referee: RS Madugalle (Sri Lanka).

Sri Lanka tighten grip despite Styris' ton

Scott Styris (100*) recorded his career-best score but Sri Lanka held the upper hand.

Scott Styris and Chris Cairns led New Zealand recovery with the 68-run fourth wicket partnership before Cairns was deceived by Aravinda de Silva, giving the bowler a diving return catch off his own bowling.

Nathan Astle, Stephen Fleming and Craig McMillan fell in the first six overs as New Zealand slumped to 15 for three.

Earlier, Sanath Jayasuriya struck a sparkling century but New Zealand fought back to restrict Sri Lanka to a total of 272 for seven in their opening Group B match on Monday.

The Sri Lankan captain was dropped twice and given the benefit of the doubt on another occasion when the New Zealanders claimed a fair catch before making a career-best 120, his first World Cup century.

Hashan Tillakaratne chipped in with an unbeaten 81 and shared a 170-run partnership with Jayasuriya before the Kiwi bowlers struck back to capture six late wickets and restrict the total when a more daunting score had seemed likely.

With both teams vying for places in the next stage of the tournament, Monday's match is pivotal to their prospects, but especially for the New Zealanders, who plan to boycott their game in Kenya because of security concerns.

Jayasuriya blasted 14 boundaries during his 125-ball innings but was lucky to survive a confident appeal for caught behind off seamer Daryl Tuffey on 18 and two dropped catches by wicketkeeper Lou Vincent on 86 and 93.

But the explosive opener, one of the heroes of Sri Lanka's 1996 World Cup victory, typically made the most of his escapes to post his 16th one-day hundred in front of a disappointingly sparse crowd.

The 33-year-old brought up his half-century when he hit Andre Adams through point for three successive fours then reached his hundred off 111 deliveries when he guided a bouncer from Shane Bond to the third man boundary rope.

With Tillakaratne content to play a more subdued role, Jayasuriya went after the New Zealand bowlers from the outset, despite being sent in to bat first on a lively Goodyear Park pitch that provided plenty of early swing and bounce to the bowlers.

Marvan Atapattu departed for six with the total on 23 when Scott Styris took a leaping catch at square leg off Bond, but Jayasuriya and Tillakaratne quickly steadied the innings.

Jayasuriya, who scored two hundreds and was run out for 99 in his four previous innings in Australia before coming to South Africa, finally departed with the total on 193 when he played across the line and was trapped lbw by medium pacer Nathan Astle.

His departure triggered a late collapse as Sri Lanka lost six wickets for 70 runs, Mahela Jayawardene (one), Aravinda De Silva (12), Kumar Sangakkara (13), Russel Arnold (12) and Chaminda Vaas (five) all falling cheaply to leave Tillakaratne battling away on his own.

The experienced left-hander, who has fought his way back into the team after being dropped following the 1999 World Cup, immediately repaid the selectors' faith with an unbeaten half-century off 106 balls, featuring five fours, despite batting with a runner in the final six overs because of cramp.

India looking to get their act in order

There were more relaxed faces visible on the eve of India's opening World Cup match than one would normally expect.

Skipper Sourav Ganguly, his deputy Rahul Dravid and coach John Wright did not appear nervous or tense as they interacted with the media and later had a workout at the nets on a very hot Tuesday afternoon in this picturesque town.

One important reason for this picture of quiet confidence is that India are facing a team that has no pretence whatsoever, of testing any side in this tournament.

The Netherlands, comprising a bunch of weekend amateurs, are here to have fun on the field. If they entertain spectators in the process, it would be an additional bonus.

After their dismal show in New Zealand and not so encouraging performance in the lead-up to Cup here, India would be pleased that the first match is against a side who should provide their batsmen with an opportunity to score runs by the tons and get back their lost confidence.

India would like to bat first on Wednesday. It is imperative that they win the toss, something that Ganguly is not lucky with.

Coach John Wright said that whatever be the situation, India would try to win convincingly and if "we were to bowl first we would want to get rid of the Netherlands batsmen as quickly as possible.''

India probably wouldn't be too unhappy if Netherlands got some runs either if they batted first, as it would give the batsmen a chance to stay at the wicket a while.

After their loss to a Natal side, the Indians are wary of treating any side lightly, even if it is one like Netherlands. But it would be silly not to use this match as a kind of practice session to prepare for the really tough battles ahead.

Teams (from):

India: Sourav Ganguly (captain), Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Anil Kumble, Harbhajan Singh, Javagal Srinath, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Mongia, Parthiv Patel, Sanjay Bangar, Ajit Agarkar, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif.

The Netherlands: Roland Lefebvre (captain), Luuk van Troost, Daan van Bunge, Jacob Esmeijer, Victor Grandia, Feiko Kloppenburg, Tim de Leede, Henk Mol, Klaus van Noortwijk, Adeel Raja, Edgar Schiferli, Reinhout Scholte, Jeroen Smits, Nick Statham, Bas Zuiderent.

Umpires: Daryl Harper (Aus) and Peter Willey (Eng).
