Pakistan vs South Africa Highlights – June 23rd, 2019 – Cricket World Cup
The pitch the game will be played on has lost much of its green in the past 24 hours and is likely to shed more by match time on Sunday. It’s expected to be a flat wicket, good for batting. These days, that would mean bowl first, but given Pakistan’s misadventure with the toss against India last Sunday, this may just be a better toss to lose for them.
After scores of 8, 0 and 0, Malik might have played his last game in a Pakistan shirt. Haris Sohail should take his place. Hasan Ali’s lackluster performances might push him to the bench, with Mohammad Hasnain poised to slot in. The performance against New Zealand was much improved, even if it didn’t produce the result of South Africa so desperately needed. They are likely to stick with the same XI.

“Looks like a good batting pitch and some grass cover on it,” he says. “We are not thinking about the pressure, just focusing on the game, which is very important for us. Haris Sohail and Shaheen in, Shoaib Malik and Hasan Ali out.
South Africa are unchanged. “I was going to bowl first anyway, so good toss to lose,” Faf says.
