Pakistan vs South Africa | Twitter Slams 'Listless' South Africa For Crashing Out of World Cup

South Africa crashed out of the ICC World Cup 2019 after a despairing 49–run loss to Pakistan in Match 30 at Lord’s London on Sunday (June 23).

Earlier, Fakhar Zaman (44) and Imam-ul-Haq (44) gave Pakistan a bright start after Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat first on a deck which looked a touch dry before Imran Tahir got rid of both of them.

There was a moment when Tahir caught Zaman in the deep but replays were not conclusive enough to give it out and it left Twitter unimpressed.

Babar Azam once again shined with a brilliant 69 but it was the inspired selection of Haris Sohail that worked wonders for Pakistan as he scored a magnificent 89 to take them to a strong total on board.

In the chase, Quinton de Kock (47) and Faf du Plessis (63) began decently but were always behind the eight ball and despite Pakistan dropping catches, South Africa could not pose any threat at any time leaving many of their fans disappointed.
