HIGHLIGHTS

  • 22:59 (IST)

    PAKISTAN WIN: Pakistan, all of a sudden are looking much more confident in the field. They are attacking the ball and are looking to finish the match soon. And that's the end of the match. Pakistan have registered a convincing win by 49 runs. 

  • 22:51 (IST)

    OUT: Another wicket for Wahab here as he castles Ngidi. This is the third wicket for him in this match. Pakistan have been exceptional with the ball. It's 246/9 now. 

  • 22:42 (IST)

    OUT: Another one bites the dust. The next man to depart is Rabada. He is bowled by Wahab, as the bowler gets his second wicket. Rabada is out for three. South Africa are 239/8. 

  • 22:30 (IST)

    OUT: Here is the 7th wicket down for the Proteas. Wahab bowls a fast yorker and Morris misses it. He hits timber as Pakistan move closer to a win now. South Africa are 222/7. 

  • 22:25 (IST)

    It's proving to be a really expensive over from Shaheen as he is hit for a couple of fours and a six. This is excellent batting by Morris. But Proteas still need 96 from 42 balls. It's 213/6.

  • 22:16 (IST)

    OUT: Here is another wicket for the Pakistanis. Shaheen Afridi bowls a slow one and Miller misses it completely. He is castled for 31. It looks all but over for the Proteas. It's 192/6. 

  • 22:12 (IST)

    MISS: Shadab has two in two here. He gets the danger-man Phehlukwayo. The batsman fails to judge a wrong one from Shadab. But the replays show that there was an edge involved that saves the batsman. 

  • 22:09 (IST)

    OUT: And finally a catch has been taken. Shadab has his third wicket here as Der Dussen goes for a big one. Hafeez takes a clean catch in the end. Pakistan are clearly moving forward in the match. It's 189/5. 

  • 21:55 (IST)

    MISS: Another catch goes down. This time Sarfaraz is the culprit. Wahab bowls a full one and Der Dussen manages to edge it. Sarfaraz drops a simple chance. On the very next ball Miller cuts the ball straight into the hands of Amir, but he too drops it. Proteas move to 168/4 in 37 overs. 

  • 21:31 (IST)

    MISS: Amir nearly had another wicket here. He starts a fresh over to Miller and the batsman plays it back to Amir. He catches it, but spills it in the very last moment. This is disastrous for Pakistan. Another eventful over comes to an end. South Africa are 143/4. 

  • 21:21 (IST)

    OUT: There is  a change in the bowling as Amir comes back into the attack. He has bowled really well till now and has the onus of getting a wicket here for Pakistan. And he has done just that. Faf goes for a big shot, but mistimes it. Sarfaraz takes a simple catch in the end. South Africa are 136/4. 

  • 21:14 (IST)

    FOUR, FOUR: Shadab continues. And Van Der Dussen goes for a lofted drive. There was a chance for Amir to take the catch, but in the end the ball went to the boundary for a four. Du Plessis too gets a four through mid wicket. 13 runs come from the over. South Africa are 130/3 after 28 overs. 

  • 21:08 (IST)

    FIFTY FOR DU PLESSIS: And excellent knock by Faf has kept the Proteas in the hunt. He scores a fifty off 66 balls. But they need to keep up the good work. After 26 overs it's 112/3. 

  • 20:59 (IST)

    OUT! Just as Imad continues to be expensive and gives away six runs off his last over, Shadab Khan does the trick with a wicket off the first ball of the 24th over. The ball skids on to Markram, and he is trapped on the back-foot, with the ball squeezing past his defences. Pakistan have struck at the right time once again, and are doing the basics right.

  • 20:48 (IST)

    OUT! De Kock is out here for 47, just as he was getting into the groove. He is caught in the deep by Imam Ul Haq off the bowling of Shadab Khan, just as he was trying to clear the fence. Crucial wicket for Pakistan. Two rins off the over, Aiden Markram has come in to bat, and the score reads 92/2 after 20 overs.

  • 20:42 (IST)

    CONSECUTIVE BOUNDARIES! The Proteas have finally launched into Wahab here, as de Kock sends him for a four through the covers first, and then a huge six off his pads through the square-leg region. He looks rattled here. A huge over for South Africa, and the score reads 90/1 at the end of 19 overs.

23:07 (IST)
Disappointing by the South Africans
22:59 (IST)

22:49 (IST)
Pakistan have been excellent today
22:42 (IST)

OUT: Another one bites the dust. The next man to depart is Rabada. He is bowled by Wahab, as the bowler gets his second wicket. Rabada is out for three. South Africa are 239/8. 

22:37 (IST)

Amir into his seventh over now. And South Africa, looks like, have already given up. This is not looking good for them at the moment. Excellent bowling by Pakistan as the score moves to 229/7 after 45.4 overs. 

22:30 (IST)

OUT: Here is the 7th wicket down for the Proteas. Wahab bowls a fast yorker and Morris misses it. He hits timber as Pakistan move closer to a win now. South Africa are 222/7. 

22:25 (IST)

It's proving to be a really expensive over from Shaheen as he is hit for a couple of fours and a six. This is excellent batting by Morris. But Proteas still need 96 from 42 balls. It's 213/6.

22:21 (IST)
Inching closer towards victory
22:16 (IST)

OUT: Here is another wicket for the Pakistanis. Shaheen Afridi bowls a slow one and Miller misses it completely. He is castled for 31. It looks all but over for the Proteas. It's 192/6. 

22:12 (IST)

MISS: Shadab has two in two here. He gets the danger-man Phehlukwayo. The batsman fails to judge a wrong one from Shadab. But the replays show that there was an edge involved that saves the batsman. 

22:09 (IST)

OUT: And finally a catch has been taken. Shadab has his third wicket here as Der Dussen goes for a big one. Hafeez takes a clean catch in the end. Pakistan are clearly moving forward in the match. It's 189/5. 

22:05 (IST)

Pakistan, despite missing all the catches they have, are still on top. Their bowlers have bowled beautifully, without giving any room to the opposition batsmen to freeze arms. That means South Africa need 123 runs in 66 balls to win. It's 186/4. 

21:55 (IST)

MISS: Another catch goes down. This time Sarfaraz is the culprit. Wahab bowls a full one and Der Dussen manages to edge it. Sarfaraz drops a simple chance. On the very next ball Miller cuts the ball straight into the hands of Amir, but he too drops it. Proteas move to 168/4 in 37 overs. 

21:50 (IST)

Shaheen Afridi comes back into the attack. Pakistan need a wicket here. On the other hand, the required run-rate is going up for South Africa all the time. They need Miller to fire all cylinders. After 36th over it's 163/4. 

21:46 (IST)
South Africa have been rather ordinary
21:40 (IST)

Another over for Amir and he is bowling like a dream at the moment. If Pakistan get another wicket here, they'll be the clear favourites to win the match. Yet another over comes to an end as Proteas move to 152/4 after 34 overs. 

21:31 (IST)

MISS: Amir nearly had another wicket here. He starts a fresh over to Miller and the batsman plays it back to Amir. He catches it, but spills it in the very last moment. This is disastrous for Pakistan. Another eventful over comes to an end. South Africa are 143/4. 

21:27 (IST)

21:21 (IST)

Faf goes for a big shot, but mistimes it. Sarfaraz takes a simple catch in the end. South Africa are 136/4. 

21:14 (IST)

FOUR, FOUR: Shadab continues. And Van Der Dussen goes for a lofted drive. There was a chance for Amir to take the catch, but in the end the ball went to the boundary for a four. Du Plessis too gets a four through mid wicket. 13 runs come from the over. South Africa are 130/3 after 28 overs. 

21:08 (IST)

FIFTY FOR DU PLESSIS: And excellent knock by Faf has kept the Proteas in the hunt. He scores a fifty off 66 balls. But they need to keep up the good work. After 26 overs it's 112/3. 

21:07 (IST)

We're halfway through the innings and South Africa are three down for 106 runs. They need to pick up the pace in the second part of the innings if they are to make a good run chase of this.

21:03 (IST)

South Africa begin proceedings in the 25th over with the score reading 104/3. Rassie van der Dussen has walked in to bat. The Proteas need a big innings from him if they are to make this a succesful run chase and keep their World Cup campaign alive.

20:59 (IST)

OUT! Just as Imad continues to be expensive and gives away six runs off his last over, Shadab Khan does the trick with a wicket off the first ball of the 24th over. The ball skids on to Markram, and he is trapped on the back-foot, with the ball squeezing past his defences. Pakistan have struck at the right time once again, and are doing the basics right.

20:55 (IST)

22 overs are gone here and only three runs came off the last over. Here is a stat that sheds some light on how well Amir has been bowling this tournament.

20:52 (IST)

95/2 after 21 overs. Pakistan just need to keep things simple here and bowl good lines and lengths. Scoreboard pressure should do the trick as far as they are concerned.

20:48 (IST)

OUT! De Kock is out here for 47, just as he was getting into the groove. He is caught in the deep by Imam Ul Haq off the bowling of Shadab Khan, just as he was trying to clear the fence. Crucial wicket for Pakistan. Two rins off the over, Aiden Markram has come in to bat, and the score reads 92/2 after 20 overs.

20:42 (IST)

CONSECUTIVE BOUNDARIES! The Proteas have finally launched into Wahab here, as de Kock sends him for a four through the covers first, and then a huge six off his pads through the square-leg region. He looks rattled here. A huge over for South Africa, and the score reads 90/1 at the end of 19 overs.

20:39 (IST)

Shadab goes for four runs off his over. Sensible cricket by the South Africans leads the score to 77/1. Pakistan need to mix things up in the field, perhaps set a more attacking field for their bowlers to bowl at. It's getting way too easy for South Africans at this point.

Pakistan vs South Africa, ICC World Cup 2019 Match at London Highlights: As it Happened

Pakistan vs South Africa Live Score, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ODI Match at London Latest Updates:PAKISTAN WIN: Pakistan, all of a sudden are looking much more confident in the field. They are attacking the ball and are looking to finish the match soon. And that's the end of the match. Pakistan have registered a convincing win by 49 runs.

Pakistan vs South Africa in the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 23 (Sunday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and live streaming will be available on Hotstar. PAK v SA will be played at Lords, London and will begin at 1500 HRS IST. You can also follow all the action on our live blog here.

Preview: It will not be any regular ICC World Cup 2019 encounter when Pakistan take on South Africa at the Lord's on Sunday. Two teams with their backs to the wall will be clashing at the historic ground to stay alive in the tournament.

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.

Starting off with a 104-run loss to England in the opening game of the tournament, the Proteas 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.

The injury woes to the pacers haven't helped either. But all in all, it has been a poor show from a team that was considered contenders for the semi-final slot along with India, England and Australia.

On Sunday, it will be all about holding their nerves and executing their skills as pointed by Pakistan pacer Wahab Riaz. The fast bowler has also rung the warning bell for the opposition and said that the Pakistan players have discussed their mistakes and are looking to make up for lost time.

The weather is expected to be cloudy, but there is no sign of rain as such and the pitch should aid the batsmen. So, both teams will expect their batsmen to stand up and make it count in a match that will decide on their future in the showpiece event. The spinners will also come into the picture if the sun is out.

Squads

Pakistan: Sarfaraz Ahmed (c, wk), Asif Ali, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Imam-ul-Haq, Shadab Khan, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz, Haris Sohail, Imad Wasim, Fakhar Zaman.

South Africa: Faf du Plessis (c), Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Beuran Hendricks, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi.
