Pakistan will face South Africa in a must-win game of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on Sunday at the Lord’s, London.
Pakistan are at 9th spot in the standings out of ten teams, one place behind their opponents today, South Africa (8th position). The Green Shirts (3 points) have played five matches so far and lost three. The Proteas – on the other hand – lost four games out of their six.
Pakistan are behind South Africa in the points table due to poor net run rate. One match each of both teams was abandoned earlier due to rain. Pakistan must win today’s contest – and all the remaining matches – in order keep their chances alive to qualify for the semi-finals.
