South Africa topped the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 Points table following their consecutive 3rd win yesterday and now they are almost through to the semis. The dominance of the Proteas is clearly visible as two South African batters are in the top of the Most Runs list and two of them are in the top 5 of the most wickets tally.
Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat first which was arguably a good decision. Pakistan had a few changes in their playing 11- Nawaz came in for Usama Mir and Mohammad Wasim Jr came in for Hasan Ali. The batting order was the same as before and Imam and Shafique came out to bat. Shafique-Imam’s poor run continues and Marco Jansen got them both early. Rizwan had a heated moment with Jansen and kept the strike rate up but couldn’t last long.
Babar Azam also reached 50 but fell short after. Saud Shakeel and Shadab Khan handled the situation and took Pakistan to a competitive total of 270. This was below-par if you look at the opponents. Pakistan’s Leg-spinner nightmare is exposed yet another time as Tabraiz Shamsi got 4 wickets.
Quinton de Kock gave a brisk start to South Africa but fell to Md Wasim Jr. Bavuma, de Kock, Der Dussen, Klaasen, and Miller, all got good starts but failed to capitalize. Markram stood there and smashed 91 runs but got out when the team needed 21 more runs. After the quick dismissals of Gerald Coetzee and Ngidi, the previously untainted African team found itself in danger of losing.
Keshav Maharaj pulled it off with a four and led his team to a 1 wicket victory over rusty Pakistan. Pakistan have not actually shown their true game in India in this tournament.
