South Africa crash out of World Cup as Pakistan win by 49 runs
LONDON || South Africa was knocked out from the World Cup tournament after its 49 runs defeat against Pakistan at Lord’s on Sunday. The Proteas had a nervy start as they reached 92 for two after 20 overs in pursuit of 309 target but with three wickets from Shadab Khan and Wahab,and two from Amir, the team, in the end, was restricted to 259. For just the second time in their history South Africa failed to reach the World Cup knockout stages after losing to fellow strugglers Pakistan. That unpalatable prospect was looming large after Pakistan piled on 308-7 in their 50 overs.
