“He has got his confidence back. I see the glint in his eye,” enthused coach Mickey Arthur. As he did Du Plessis for speed, Amir, who was not in Pakistan’s preliminary World Cup squad, vaulted to the top of the wickets tally with 15 in five matches. Astonishingly, his economy rate at this tournament, of 4.75, is also superior to any bowler with more than eight wickets.

He bowls slower balls really well and here he bowls a few beauties, both Babar and Haris unable to score effectively. single for Haris finally gets new man Imad on strike, but he doesn’t need any time to settle in, it seems. He smacks one outside off for four first ball. Then a glorious golf swing from Haris goes down the ground and over the fielder in the deep for six. Haris then adds four more with a slog through midwicket which finds the gap. Amir has a wicket with his first ball of the match.
t won’t matter today, because South Africa are so very clueless, but Pakistan’s fielding has been awful. First it is the keeper, then it is Amir in the deep, getting to the ball but dropping it. As the Protea fire is extinguished in a blaze of ignominy, Pakistan cling to the remote possibility that maybe, just maybe, they can rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
“But we all are okay. We are backing ourselves. Hopefully we will bounce back in tomorrow’s match. “Psychologically the pressure is on a captain if you lose a World Cup match against India,” Sarfaraz told reporters. “I feel like as a team we’re getting better. Today is an opportunity for us. I was going to bowl first anyway, so it’s a good toss to lose.” here are so many empty seats at Lord’s but the Pakistan fans are still making a fantastic racket.
ig, big, big appeal from Rabada off the first ball of this over. He puts in a fuller delivery and it slams into Imam’s pad. Umpire Dharmasena is uninterested, though, with the ball having pitched outside leg. hris Morris comes on for South Africa and his first ball, which is too full, is punished by Imam, as he drives down the ground for Pakistan’s ninth boundary off just 43 balls so far. That brings up the 50 partnership at what has been breakneck speed. eally, really good over from Rabada, but no reward.
Later in the over, Rabada beats Babar with a very quick jaffer that nibbles away. aris Sohail is carrying the fight to Rabada in no uncertain terms! Rabada, stung, with the short ball follow up. He steps back and carts it over point for six! Pakistan are starting to happen and the Bok better watch out.
