Pakistan stun South Africa in Champions Trophy


Pakistan completed a remarkable turnaround to beat South Africa by 19 runs on the D/L method in their day/night Group B Champions Trophy match at Edgbaston yesterday and so maintain their hopes of a semi-final place.

AB de Villiers is "due" a big score against Champions Trophy title-holders India according to fellow South Africa batsman David Miller after the Proteas skipper suffered the first golden duck of his one-day worldwide career.

It was David Miller who took it upon himself to take South Africa to a respectable score and not get bundled out inside 50 overs. Pakistan had lost to India in their opening match on Sunday, suffering a crushing 124-run defeat as they chased a rain-revised target.

Pacer Hasan Ali took 2-34, Junaid Khan picked up 2-53 and the spin duo of Imad Wasim (2-20) and Mohammad Hafeez (1-51) thwarted South Africa's highly-rated batting line-up restricting them to a modest 219-3. "I did it nicely", said Ali.

But Morne Morkel, a longstanding South Africa team-mate, said there was no doubting de Villiers s desire to win a major limited-overs trophy with the Proteas.

"It is heartening to see Pakistan play the way it did and I hope it continues its good work and brings smiles on the faces of our passionate cricket fans", Afridi wrote in a column for cricket governing body website

Another heavily rain-influenced game, but this was a win that had a whole lot more to do with a sensational bowling performance from Pakistan.

Pakistan needed to reach South Africa's 220 in order to stay alive in the competition. With no further action on the field, they won on Duckworth/Lewis method. Debutant Fakhar Zaman went for 31 and was followed two balls later by Azhar Ali for nine.

"We had a good bowling meeting (on Tuesday)", added Sarfraz, who saw his attack rebound after India smashed 72 from the final four overs of its innings on Sunday.
