Pakistan beat South Africa in Cricket World Cup at Lord’s

South Africa were knocked out the World Cup as Pakistan inflicted a fifth defeat on the struggling Proteas to keep their own semi-final hopes alive.

In the must-win meeting, the 1992 champions won by 49 runs to register just their second win from six games.Haris Sohail’s entertaining 89 and 69 from Babar Azam saw Pakistan make 308-7 after they won the toss at Lord’s.Despite 63 from captain Faf du Plessis, South Africa never got up with the required rate and finished on 259-9.Beaten semi-finalists in 2015, South Africa were ranked fourth coming into the tournament.

But a wretched showing, with just a solitary victory against Afghanistan to date, means they now have just pride to play for in their remaining two games, against Sri Lanka on Friday and Australia on 6 July.
