Pakistan beat South Africa by 19 runs (DLS)

13 Juin, 2017, 13:59 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Sent into the bowl first, Pakistan restricted South Africa to 220 runs for eight wickets in Group B day/night One-day global. David Miller's unbeaten 75 kept the Proteas in the game.

And when fast bowler Morne Morkel took two wickets in three balls, Pakistan were faltering at 41 for two under the Edgbaston floodlights.

Pakistan finished at 119-3 in 27 overs, 19 runs ahead under the Duckworth-Lewis method which gave them their first win of the tournament.

Pakistan's "clueless" batsmen will be chasing redemption when they take on South Africa in the Champions Trophy, according to the team's former captain Shahid Afridi.

Pakistan after being humiliated by India in their first encounter of Champions Trophy 2017 will face off South Africa on Wednesday in a do-or-die encounter in Edgbaston, Birmingham.

It all left Group B wide open, with three teams on a win apiece after South Africa defeated Sri Lanka by 96 runs at the Oval last week.

"We bowled in the right areas and our fielding was much improved", said Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed.

Ostapenko: 'Enjoy the match, fight until last point' | Wins Roland Garros 2017
There's no better example to cite in this context than the statistical breakdown of Ostapenko's shots in her 119-minute final. Same with Petra Kvitova , a two-time victor at the All England Club, who just began her comeback from a knife attack.

"Today, we need to write off, just see it as an average game". "It (rain) is something we can't control, if I want to say it that way".

Meanwhile paceman Junaid Khan replaced Wahab Riaz, who suffered a tournament-ending ankle injury against India while falling in his delivery stride after being smashed for 87 runs in just 8.4 wicketless overs.

Frustrated at his inability to keep the score ticking over, De Kock (33) was eventually out lbw trying to sweep Hafeez before Imad had De Villiers caught at backward point for a golden duck in the next over. The chance of winning is more for South Africa. It's going to take a big team effort to knock over India.

Miller, the only bright spot for South Africa on an otherwise gloomy day, tried to resurrect the innings by adding 47 with Morris (28 off 45 balls).

Expected playing XI:Pakistan: Azhar Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (C), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Junaid Khan, Hasan Ali. After bowling a short ball, Morkel deceived Zaman with an off-cutter, and the batsman edged it to the slip.

The victor of the bout was decided via Duckworth and Lewis calculation and Pakistan's Hasan Ali was named man of the match.
