World Cup Wahab Riaz Urges Pakistan Teammates To Stick Together Ahead Of South Africa Clash

Pakistan were pegged back after making a strong start in their must-win World Cup clash against fellow strugglers South Africa at Lord's on Sunday. He was the closest to scoring the first century by either team at this World Cup, but he couldn't get the strike back at the death and was out for 89 trying to slog the penultimate ball, his 59th of a superb innings that included three sixes and nine boundaries.

On 91-2 in the 20th over and with the required run-rate climbing, South Africa needed a big innings from Du Plessis.

For a change, South Africa don't have injury concerns heading into a game.

With 10 overs to go Pakistan had a formidable foundation from which to launch an attack at 217/3 but Azam would not be there to see them home.

Haris put on an 81-run fourth-wicket stand with Babar Azam (69) and dominated his 71-run partnership with Imad Wasim (23) but fell short of a maiden World Cup century when he was caught behind of the penultimate ball of the match off Lungi Ngidi - Pakistan finishing on 308-7. The spinner has surpassed Allan Donald's 38 WC wickets. He didn't look to du Plessis for a review on Hafeez, though, and South Africa lost their review.

"The Haris Sohail we got today was the Haris Sohail that played incredibly well and I couldn't be happier".

Red Sox announce Ortiz is in 'good' condition
Ortiz continues his recovery in a Boston hospital. "We all want more information, but we have to wait". For the first time, authorities also revealed a motive for the shooting.

Earlier, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed won the toss and chose to bat first.

Pakistan then had a batting debacle, as well as a middle-order collapse, only saw their target rising and after a rain intervention, they were left to score 136 runs in just five overs which was never going to be feasible. The forecast is for cloudy but warm conditions. "We are very hopeful heading into the game against South Africa and we will try our best", said Sarfaraz.

"I know we can beat New Zealand", Arthur said after Sunday's match.

Haris scored his first two ODI centuries in March against Australia, but so-so scores in May in the England series doomed him to only one bat in the World Cup. Shoaib Malik's place in the side will also be under scrutiny, with Haris Sohail and Asif Ali being the other options.

Chris Morris (0/61 in 9) and Andile Phehlukwayo (1/49 in 8) couldn't get the breakthrough either, and it eventually came through Imran Tahir (2/41 in 10) when he had Fakhar Zaman (44 off 50) gobbled up by Hashim Amla at slip after the batsman had tried a premeditated paddle.
