Pakistan take on South Africa in Match No. 30 of World Cup 2019 at the Lord’s on Sunday. Both the teams cannot afford any further slip-ups if they want to stay alive in the 2019 edition of the World Cup.
While Pakistan have stayed true to their unpredictable nature — losing to West Indies, Australia and India while beating hosts England – South Africa have been the biggest disappointment of this edition of the showpiece event as they have failed to even stage a fight.
Morning has clearly shown the day for the Proteas. Starting off with a 104-run loss to England in the opening game of the tournament, they then lost to Bangladesh by 21 runs before India thrashed them by six wickets. A no-result against Windies later (due to rain), they beat Afghanistan. But New Zealand beat them by four wickets to push them back to the bottom half of the points table.
For Pakistan, nothing has clicked. While the batting has been mediocre to say the least, the bowlers have failed to pick wickets at the top half of the innings. The fielding has been below average as usual.
But for South Africa, it has been a case of surrendering even before the choke has been applied. While their batting has left a lot to be desired, the worst part has been the fielding of a side that took world cricket by storm with its athletic fielders since their return to international cricket in 1992.
