Pakistan are almost out of the Champions Trophy after suffering a heavy 67-run defeat against the Proteas in a do-or-die match for both the sides. The Misbah-ul-Haq team has lost two matches in a row and has just one match left against arch-rivals India
India prevailed by 26 runs against South Africa in a high-scoring affair on a flat batting track at Cardiff in the opening match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013. Needing 332 runs to win, South Africa lost a couple of early wickets but bounced back to threaten to chase down the target.
South Africa avoided the ignominy of a whitewash against New Zealand by winning a thriller on Friday at Potchefstroom. Ryan McLaren, known more for his bowling, and having already picked up four wickets with the ball, became an unlikely hero with the bat when he slammed the last ball of the match from James Franklin for a six.
