Pakistan are set to take on South Africa in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 contest at Edgbaston. This is a must-win game for the Sarfraz Ahmed as a defeat here will put them on the flight to home. South Africa on the other hand are just a win away from booking the semis berth and would look to finish the job before the Sunday’s fixture against defending champions India.

Pakistan vs South Africa Match Highlights: 

That’s that, there won’t be any more cricket played today, Pakistan have won by 19 runs (D/L). 

South Africa 219/8 after 50 overs. David Miller’s unbeaten 75 saved the Proteas a lot of embarrassment as the left-hander pushed the total to a competitive figure. Hasan Ali was pick of the bowlers for Pakistan as the seamer returned with figures of 3/24. Good bowling effort by Pakistan and a disappointing show by SA batters

Pakistan Team: Azhar Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan

South Africa Team: Q de Kock (wk), HM Amla, F du Plessis, AB de Villiers (c), DA Miller, JP Duminy, CH Morris, WD Parnell, K Rabada, M Morkel, Imran Tahir

      This is the worst tournament ever. ICC should have knew about the weather in England. Almost in every game there is rain. They should have organised it somewhere where the weather conditions were good. : www.ptv-sports .pk/
