Pakistan, South Africa look to salvage pride

'Ridiculous': Controversial rule at centre of Cricket World Cup drama

'Ridiculous': Controversial rule at centre of Cricket World Cup drama

"We have, we will" - the idea behind Pakistan cricket team's official World Cup 2019 slogan was to let it be known that the Men in Green won the tournament in the past and will do so again.

However, England, smarting from their upset against Sri Lanka, will be out of the running for the last four if they lose their remaining three games against Australia, India and New Zealand.

Gibson said before the tournament that the good news for South Africa was that those new players weren't affected by World Cup failures. Players of the caliber of Dale Steyn, Hashim Amla and captain Faf du Plessis are possibly leaving for one-day global retirement with a bitter final taste of the World Cup.

'The results we are dishing out at the moment, it's tough.

'We did try and get him not to go to the IPL; to try and stay and get fresh, ' Du Plessis said.

'It started with our bowling.

However, there is a long way to go for the bowler who has already made history in his country by being the only player to bag six year-end awards. "We always keep telling our players, it's one performance", Arthur, whose team are now seventh in the 10-team standings, told reporters. One step forward and two steps back is not a good team'.

Captain du Plessis should have been firm in his stance of pulling out of IPL halfway through.

Conway also accused the Democrat-led panel of trying to "silence" her for her role in helping Trump win the presidency. The 1939 law prohibits executive branch employees from engaging in some political activities.

The skipper top-scored for his team on Sunday with 63, but received little support as the Proteas played too cautiously, then threw their wickets away in a desperate bid to get back into the match.

"England now play without fear and aren't afraid to make mistakes".

Rabada said he is disappointed but would not say it is his worst. They stand at the sixth spot in the tournament standings with five points.

They have just one win from six World Cup outings and know that only a miracle can save them from yet another World Cup disappointment. "I am not going to subdue my training, if someone tells me", the Delhi Capitals player had said.

Du Plessis added that the team had been running low on confidence as their losses piled up and turning that around rested mostly with each individual player.

"The thing about the squad is that there are guys playing their last World Cup and I'd like to think that they will leave the world stage having signed off on a strong note".

He questioned Sohail's slow batting in the last few overs of Pakistan innings, saying that he looked exhausted during the death overs and the team could score only 20 runs off the last three overs.

'It's important myself, the coach and the senior players front up to this challenge'. We will win our next three games and will qualify for the semifinals of the mega event. That's the one area I would have changed but it's not in my hands, ' he said. It did not happen and du Plessis felt that Rabada was not as fiery in the World Cup as he could have been.
