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
