As shocking as it may seem, but Pakistan did manage to beat the world’s number one ranked team. After the way in which Pakistan meekly surrendered against India in their opening game, no one would have even expected the team to put on such a fine performance, as they did against South Africa in Birmingham. With the win, Pakistan’s campaign in this tournament is alive and kicking and now, a victory over Sri Lanka could well be their ticket for the semi-final.


Things began with some exceptional bowling as barring David Miller, none of the South African batsmen displayed any resistance and was undone by the sheer unpredictable nature of the Pakistani outfit. All bowlers chipped in with decent contributions and that restricted South Africa to a below-par 219-8 in 50 overs.


Pakistan began the chase extremely well and debutant Fakhar Zaman was superb in his debut. However, a double-wicket over from Morne Morkel saw both openers being dismissed and a lull followed. However, the side didn’t lose hope and managed to scrape to 119-3 in 27 overs before the heavens opened up.


As per the D/L method, Pakistan were 19 runs ahead, enough to give them a victory. Fans on Twitter reacted to the shocking result, and below are some of the tweets.
