London, June 23, Sunday at 03:00 PM IST
Pakistan and South Africa will lock horns at Lord's on Sunday to keep their semi-final hopes alive. Both the teams have managed just one win so far and need to win each of their remaining encounters to advance into the semi-finals.
In six games, South Africa has managed just a solitary win over Afghanistan under the DLS method and has faced four defeats. With one more loss, they will be out of contention for the semi-final spot.
In five games, Pakistan has three defeats and a solitary win over England while one of their encounter against Sri Lanka got abandoned due to rain.
The match will begin at 03:00 PM IST.
