Update: Pakistan has lost by 67 runs. If WI win both their games, and if Pakistan beat India, they could still go through to the CT finals.
South Africa beat Pakistan by 67 runs in their Champions Trophy Group B day/night match at Edgbaston on Monday.
Pakistan, set 235 to win, finished on 167 all out after never really recovering from the loss of two early wickets to South Africa debutant Chris Morris, despite captain Misbah-ul-Haq’s 55.
Ryan McLaren polished off the innings with four for 19 as South Africa won with five overs to spare.
Earlier, man-of-the-match Hashim Amla (81) top-scored in South Africa’s 234 for nine.
Victory revived South Africa’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals after their opening loss to India but this result left Pakistan’s hopes of reaching the last four hanging by a thread after they were also defeated by the West Indies.
South Africa conclude their group programme against the West Indies in Cardiff on Friday with Pakistan facing arch-rivals India at Edgbaston on Saturday.
South Africa are set to to be without Dale Steyn once again at the Champions Trophy when they face Pakistan at Edgbaston on Monday. Defeat at Edgbaston will leave either South Africa or Pakistan on the brink of exit. Neither team is ready for that reality yet, so expect a tooth-and-nail affair between two desperate units.
Steyn, widely regarded as the best fast bowler currently in world cricket, missed the Proteas’ opening 26-run Group B defeat by India in Cardiff on Thursday with a side strain. South Africa’s fast bowling resources were further depleted when Morne Morkel, who limped off while bowling his seventh over against India, was ruled out of the tournament with a leg injury. The Proteas have called up Chris Morris, a 26-year-old seamer who has played two Twenty20 matches for South Africa, but has yet to appear in a one-day international, as Morkel’s replacement.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq said South Africa remained a strong side even without their two premier fast bowlers.
Monday’s match is effectively a must-win clash for both sides after Pakistan suffered a two-wicket defeat in a low-scoring affair with the West Indies at The Oval on Friday.
