BIRMINGHAM, 07 June: Pakistan will take on South Africa in their second and must-win match in the ICC Champions Trophy, at Birmingham today. The match will begin at 5:30pm Pakistan Standard Time (PST).
Pakistan will aim to bounce back from their humiliating defeat against India when they take on South Africa to keep their hopes alive in the tournament.
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has said that Fakhar Zaman will replace opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad, and Junaid Khan will strengthen the bowling attack after Wahab Riaz was ruled out of the tournament due to injury.
Pakistan were defeated by India on Sunday in their tournament opener, whereas South Africa had defeated Sri Lanka in their tournament opener. If Pakistan fail to conquer South Africa, the odds to qualify for semi-finals will almost disappear.
