World Cup 2019: Pakistan Vs South Africa


MATCH DETAILS

Pakistan vs South Africa, Match 30, ICC World Cup 2019
June 23, 2019, 3:00 PM IST

VENUE : Lord’s, London

DETAILS

This is the first match at the venue and if the domestic One-Day Cup is concerned, the pitch was a decent one for batting. This being the first game, the surface could be a good one for batting and if the sun comes out, the spinners might enjoy as well. The team winning the toss should opt to field as it is likely to be cloudy and the ball will swing early on.

PREVIEW

Pakistan, who were outplayed in all departments against India in their previous game, will aim for an improved performance as they face a must-win situation against South Africa at Lords, London. The match will be played on 23rd June and will be live from 3:00 PM IST.

After producing contrasting results in their first two matches, Pakistan's performance has slipped in their last two games. While a batting failure handed them a 41-run defeat against Australia, lack of intensity and consistency in all the three departments resulted in an 89-run defeat against their arch-rivals, India.

The Faf du Plessis-led side will look to produce performances similar to that of their series win against Pakistan earlier this year, when they take the field on Sunday.
