Rain interrupts play: Pakistan 175/5 against South Africa
Pakistan with momentum on their back is all set to take on South Africa in match 29 of World Cup at Eden Park.
AB de Villiers, in red-hot form, has refused to be denied thus far in South Africa’s campaign and has been the beating heart of the run-making in a World Cup that has seen big scores.
Certainly, de Villiers is not alone in his success. Hashim Amla is up to his usual tricks, scoring comfortably at better than a run-a-ball without ever seeming to break a sweat or play a shot in anger. David Miller and Rilee Rossouw have muscled the ball around, and Quinton de Kock is due.
Pakistan has rediscovered its winning ways after a slow start. The batting came good as it put up 339 against UAE, after the bowlers held their nerve to defend 235 against Zimbabwe, for a thrilling 20-run win.
