Pakistan vs South Africa Highlights And Cricket Score - 30th ODI Match - Summary

End of Over : 50.0 SA: 259/9

That ends yet another weekend in the World Cup. The new week will be begun by two competitive teams - Bangladesh and Afghanistan at The Rose Bowl, Southampton. The match begins at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Victorious Pakistan captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed, credits the win to a team effort. Praises Babar Azam and then Haris Sohail. On being asked why Sohail was not played earlier, Ahmed says that team combination did not allow them to field him. Compares his innings of today to Jos Buttler's heroics at the death. Admits that the fielding was very poor and they have to work very hard and sort out these things. Praises all the bowlers - first Amir for setting things up with the new ball, then Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim in the middle and Shaheen Afridi in the remaining part.

South African skipper, Faf du Plessis, admits that the Proteas did not play good cricket at all in this tournament. Adds that even in this game, the new-ball bowlers did not get off to a good start and allowed Pakistan to run away with the game. Says that 300 on this wicket was a bit too much. On the batting department, du Plessis says that lack of partnerships was the key but puts it down mainly to lack of confidence within the group. On Imran Tahir, Faf says that the leggie was exceptional, leading the attack consistently but rues the fact that there have not been enough guys like him. On the biggest downside, du Plessis says that South Africa are not playing like South Africa, letting themselves down in terms of skill set.

HARIS SOHAIL HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. He says it is tough when you are sitting out and waiting for an opportunity but was eager to play and grab the opportunity he gets. Ends by saying when he went to bat, he was told to build a partnership with Azam, things were not easy but he backed himself and it all went well.

In a forgetful tournament, only Imran Tahir and Rassie van der Dussen have been the bright spots for the Saffas. No one really stepped up with either bat or ball and their position shows in the points table. Pakistan move to 7th with 5 points. Please stay tuned for the presentation...

SOUTH AFRICA HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY KNOCKED OUT OF THE 2019 WORLD CUP. It was a disappointing start to their campaign and they never got going, except for a win against Afghanistan. Even in this game, their new-ball bowlers struggled, a perennial problem throughout this tournament while with the bat, only de Kock and du Plessis played an innings of any substance.

After winning the toss, Pakistan batsmen did a reasonable job of seeing off the new balls and then consolidated in the middle order and teed off at the death. With the ball, Mohammad Amir found his mojo while Wahab Riaz and Shadab Khan shares the spoils with 3 wickets each.

Pakistan are alive. This was the 'other' Pakistan which turned up today. They batted responsibly, piled on a big score and then bowled well to defend the total.

Summary

Pakistan will lock horns with South Africa in the match no 30 of ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC), 2019. The action will take place at Lord's Cricket Ground in London. This is a do-or-die game for both teams. Both Pakistan and South Africa team are struggling to get victories in the on-going tournament. Pakistan lost to India in their last CWC 2019 game which was played one week back.

 

South Africa, on the other hand, lost their previous game against New Zealand. Just like Pakistan, even Proteas are facing batting woes. Bowlers will play a major role in this game. South Africa on the eighth position at the point table, while Pakistan is on 9th, however, the former has played 6 games and will have only two games left after this match. If Pakistan wins their upcoming match, they will have three games left in this tournament.
