Pakistan were playing for their World Cup survival and their army of fans turned Lord’s into a vibrant mass of green.
match summary of PAKISTAN VS SOUTH AFRICA
Half-century for Babar Azam! 👏
It’s his second of the tournament – he brings up the mark off 61 balls.
What a knock from Haris Sohail! He may have missed out on a ton, but his 59-ball 89 has boosted Pakistan past 300. SouthAfrica need to chase 309 to win the match against Pakistan ?
South Africa were 112-3 at the end of the 26th over as they attempted to chase down a meaty 309-run target set by a resurgent Pakistan at Lord’s Cricket Ground in the 30th match of the tournament.
Pakistan condemned SouthAfrica to World Cup elimination and kept alive their own slender chances of advancing to the semi-finals with a 49-run win at Lord’s.
Chasing 309 to remain in the hunt for a last four berth, South Africa’s survival bid petered out on 259-9. Disciplined Pakistan bowling saw Shadab Khan and Wahab Riaz take three wickets each as South Africa surrendered without a fight.
Faf du Plessis’s side had already been roughed up by Haris Sohail’s brilliant 59-ball innings of 89 in Pakistan’s 308-7.
South Africa’s fifth defeat in seven World Cup matches confirmed their embarrassingly early exit, with matches against Sri Lanka and Australia still to play.
