Birmingham: Pakistan will be looking to bounce back from its humiliating defeat against India, when it takes on a strong and confident South Africa side in their second game of the Champions Trophy 2017. Captain Sarfraz Ahmed insisted his team has the ability to recover from the opening drubbing. Pakistan’s crushing 124-run loss to the title-holders on Sunday saw them outplayed in all aspects of the game.
This, unfortunately, isn’t looking too promising, as has been the case over the last few days. There is possibility of rain on Wednesday evening, which could mar the second half of the game. The match starts at 6 PM IST.

It’s also the second and last day-night game of the tournament; the first day-night game, Australia v Bangladesh on Monday, was ended prematurely by inclement weather and ended four overs shy of Australia scoring an easy win. But if rain does stay away, the pitch should produce some runs.
South Africa are well placed at the moment, having won their first game against Sri Lanka comfortably but Pakistan will have their work cut out as it is a must-win match for the former World Champions. A loss against South Africa would mean that Pakistan are virtually out of the tournament. A win for South Africa will take them closer to a spot in the semi-finals. Pakistan vs South Africa live
