Pakistan and South Africa meet in Match 30 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in what is a must-win game for both teams, with Pakistan winning the toss and captain Sarfaraz Ahmed opting to bat at Lord’s.
Both sides have extremely slim chances of making the semi-finals and only a massive collapse by the other teams at the top of the table can help them into the next round.
In the points table, South Africa are eighth with Pakistan ninth with only net run rate separating the two teams. South Africa have played six matches and won just once (against the bottom of the table side Afghanistan) with four defeats and a match getting washed out.
Pakistan, on the other hand, have played one match less with one win (against England), three defeats and a washout as well.
