That ends yet another weekend in the World Cup. The new week will be begun by two competitive teams - Bangladesh and Afghanistan at The Rose Bowl, Southampton. The match begins at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Victorious Pakistan captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed, credits the win to a team effort. Praises Babar Azam and then Haris Sohail. On being asked why Sohail was not played earlier, Ahmed says that team combination did not allow them to field him. Compares his innings of today to Jos Buttler's heroics at the death. Admits that the fielding was very poor and they have to work very hard and sort out these things. Praises all the bowlers - first Amir for setting things up with the new ball, then Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim in the middle and Shaheen Afridi in the remaining part.
South African skipper, Faf du Plessis, admits that the Proteas did not play good cricket at all in this tournament. Adds that even in this game, the new-ball bowlers did not get off to a good start and allowed Pakistan to run away with the game. Says that 300 on this wicket was a bit too much. On the batting department, du Plessis says that lack of partnerships was the key but puts it down mainly to lack of confidence within the group. On Imran Tahir, Faf says that the leggie was exceptional, leading the attack consistently but rues the fact that there have not been enough guys like him. On the biggest downside, du Plessis says that South Africa are not playing like South Africa, letting themselves down in terms of skill set.
HARIS SOHAIL HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. He says it is tough when you are sitting out and waiting for an opportunity but was eager to play and grab the opportunity he gets. Ends by saying when he went to bat, he was told to build a partnership with Azam, things were not easy but he backed himself and it all went well.
In a forgetful tournament, only Imran Tahir and Rassie van der Dussen have been the bright spots for the Saffas. No one really stepped up with either bat or ball and their position shows in the points table. Pakistan move to 7th with 5 points. Please stay tuned for the presentation...
SOUTH AFRICA HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY KNOCKED OUT OF THE 2019 WORLD CUP. It was a disappointing start to their campaign and they never got going, except for a win against Afghanistan. Even in this game, their new-ball bowlers struggled, a perennial problem throughout this tournament while with the bat, only de Kock and du Plessis played an innings of any substance.
After winning the toss, Pakistan batsmen did a reasonable job of seeing off the new balls and then consolidated in the middle order and teed off at the death. With the ball, Mohammad Amir found his mojo while Wahab Riaz and Shadab Khan shares the spoils with 3 wickets each.
Pakistan are alive. This was the 'other' Pakistan which turned up today. They batted responsibly, piled on a big score and then bowled well to defend the total.

Mohammad Amir To Andile Phehlukwayo
NOT OUT! Phehlukwayo is in! Amir bowls a slower one outside off. Andile swings but it goes off the outside edge which goes up in the air but lands well short of third man. The fielder collects the ball and fires it to the keeper who whips the bails off and appeals as the batsmen try and compete the second. The umpire takes it upstairs. Replays roll in and they show that Andile is in.
Have South Africa been bowled out? An appeal for a run out has been taken upstairs. Pakistan don't seem excited though.

NOT OUT! There is an inside edge! South Africa will breathe a huge sigh of a relief! The googly on middle, Miller looks to sweep but he seems to have missed it. The ball hits him on the pads. An appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Miller reviews immediately. Time for the replays and they show there is an inside edge. The on-field call has to be overturned. But just three runs and a wicket from the over. 120 needed in the last 10.
Has Shadab got another? Miller has been given out LBW. Looks out. This will probably be the game for Pakistan if this is an unsuccessful review.

Shadab Khan To Rassie van der Dussen OUT!
OUT! Pakistan finally hang onto one. A very good catch this by Hafeez. Also, clever bowling from Shadab. He slows it up and bowls it outside off, it is the leg spinner. It pitches and turns away. Rassie looks to hit it against the spin, over the leg side but gets a top edge. It goes high in the air, so high that it probably has snow on it as it comes down. Sarfaraz goes for it and Hafeez from point is also interested. The latter calls for it, Sarfaraz lets it be and Mohammad takes it with a dive to his right.

Shaheen Afridi To Rassie van der Dussen
Angles this on the pads from around the wicket. Rassie looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. The ball rolls towards square leg. A leg bye taken. So the plan seems to be clear, van der Dussen will stay there and Miller will go after the bowlers at the moment.

Shaheen Afridi To David Miller
On the bounce! Short and on middle, Miller pulls it but it goes on the bounce to deep mid-wicket. A single.
DRINKS BREAK. Are we onto something here? Or are we expecting a bit too much? Miller needs to play a blinder and has to get support from van der Dussen, Phehlukwayo and Morris. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be searching for reverse swing and shut this chase off. Shaheen Afridi is back on. 4-0-18-0 so far.

Mohammad Amir To Faf du Plessis OUT!
OUT! In the air... taken! Faf du Plessis is out of here and this is a body blow for South Africa. Their hopes of chasing this down has been dented big time here. Amir does what he was brought on for. Excellent bowling change from Pakistan. This is slightly short and angling away from off. The line was key as Faf looks to drag his shot on the leg side. All he manages is a top edge which goes high up in the air beside the wicket. Sarfaraz calls for it and makes no mistake. The crowd here knows the importance of the wicket as they are going bonkers. Pakistan easily on top at the moment. 173 needed in 123.

This is tossed up on off, Rassie looks to go downtown but does not time it that well. It goes high up in the air towards long off where Amir is a touch inside the ropes. He runs to back and to his right, stretches his hands out but it brushes his fingers tips and goes into the fence.

OUT! That is clean as a whistle! Important, important catch and a big, big wicket as de Kock just started to get going. Also, this 87-run partnership started to look very threatening. Shadab Khan tosses this up on middle, de Kock looks to play the slog sweep. He does not get it off the middle and it goes flat towards deep square leg. Imam there seems to have taken it diving forward and inches above the ground. The Pakistan players celebrate but the umpire are seen having a chat in the middle. They then take it upstairs and the SOFT SIGNAL IS OUT! Replays roll in and it shows that the ball has not touched the ground. De Kock walks back after getting off to yet another start. 50TH ODI WICKET FOR SHADAB!
Has Imam taken that cleanly? The SOFT SIGNAL THIS TIME IS OUT! Big moment in the game!

Shadab Khan To Quinton de Kock
Flighted ball on middle, de Kock looks to play the slog sweep but does not time it well. It goes on the bounce to the fielder at deep square leg. One taken.

Fuller and on middle, this is hit down to long on for one.
DRINKS! South Africa have recovered well after they lost Amla early. However, Pakistan are still ahead in the game but they need to break this stand which is starting to get a move on now. Both Faf and de Kock look set now and if they stay out there for longer, South Africa will probably become favorites to chase this down. An interesting passage of play coming up...

Shaheen Afridi is on now! Just 19 years of age. Only the two overs for Hafeez. The experiment worked wonders for Sarfaraz.

OUT! LBW! Three reds and Amla is a goner! Amir strikes on his first ball itself! Excellent use of the technology. Amir lands this around middle and leg and gets it to tail back in. Amla looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal follows but the umpire shakes his head. The ball rolls towards square leg as the batsmen cross ends. Amir is confident that is plumb but Sarfaraz is not sure. He eventually goes with his bowler and takes the review. Replays roll in and they show that the ball is pitching in line and is hitting the leg stump. South Africa have been rocked early, just the start they did not want.
A review for LBW! Amir is very confident that Amla has been caught plumb LBW in front. He has convinced Sarfaraz to take the review. Ahmed though is not so sure but goes with his bowler. Seems to be pitching outside leg. NO! In line and three reds. Amla is on his bike! What a review.
