Play called off, Pakistan beat South Africa by 19 runs on the DLS in 7th Match of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Wednesday.
South Africa made 219 for eight after winning the toss against Pakistan in a Group B ICC Champions Trophy match.
Pursuing 220, Pakistan managed to 119/3 thanks to a striking knock from Fakhar Zaman before the rain mediated. As rain by and by played spoilsport in a high-voltage low scoring issue at Edgbaston, Birmingham, it was the ‘Rain Gods’ who had their last say as Pakistan batting lineup some way managed to stay ahead of the DLS standard score at the 27-over mark.
With this outcome, Pakistan have a possibility of qualifying for the semi-finals while for South Africa, their last game against India is an absolute must-win situation.
