After winning the match Pakistani wicketkeeper batsman Sarfaraz Ahmad says, “I am very thankful to the world and Pakistan for this opportunity. I want to thank all those who supported me, including my family. This is my World Cup debut match, but Mushie bhai (Mushtaq Ahmed) had good words for me to encourage me and told me to go out and enjoy myself.”

By the way this kid took 6 catches, highest by any Pakistani cricketer. Why they were playing Umar Akmal all these years?

Pakistan win an unlikely match against South Africa

The match is turning out to be far more interesting than anyone had thought. Even befor ehte beginning of the South African inning, almost everyone thought that it will be a one sided match as South Africa will demolish Pakistani side without much of the effort.

So far, the Pakistani team has been the punching bag of sorts for world’s top teams. India and Australia were able to beat them without any resistance, counter attack or planning by the Pakistani side.

We expected the same again today. But Pakistani team seems to have amazed us as they are working hard with bowling and fielding.

Misbah-ul-Haq1South Africa have lost their seven wickets. Only De Villiers is resisting Pakistani attack and he has taken his side very close to win. But let’s see as to what happens.
