South Africa has been on a disappointing streak of games. Lately, they came winning a series against Sri Lanka and then it was all dressed and gone nowhere. They had a disappointing loss against England, later Bangladesh, then India. Hopes raised when they won against Afghanistan by DLS, but again a defeat was faced against New Zealand in a nail biter. They are above their opponents with only one match more played.
The “Men In Dark Green” have been disappointing too. That to the extent that Kamran Akmal has asked the Prime Minister of Pakistan to punish them for such performance. Well, back to the tournament, Pakistan is in dire need to win. Only one win against England was surprising rest all the tough teams and were final defeats. They will give another effort to have a win against out of form South Africa, at Lord’s.
