Du Plessis: Lowest point in my captaincy

ICC World Cup 2019 Faf du Plessis Blames IPL Participation For The Downfall Of Kagiso Rabada

The 1992 champions were on the brink of elimination after losing three of their first five games, including a bruising defeat to arch-rivals India.

The Proteas lost by 49 runs to Pakistan on Sunday, ruling themselves out of contention for the semi-finals in the process having won only one of their seven matches at the tournament - a win over minnows Afghanistan.

Australia now lead the points table, New Zealand are in second place, England is in third place while India come in fourth.

"At the backend of the game, they generally got the ball to reverse a little bit in those last 10-15 overs", he said.

Ottis Gibson is unlikely to remain head coach, with his contract expiring after the tournament, while Faf Du Plessis' role as captain is also in doubt.

"I love captaining this team, and the fact that we are playing way, way below our potential is not something that sits with me well". "We are not thinking about the pressure, just focusing on the game, which is very important for us", Sarfraz said. "We put our three disciplines together, we are as good as any team in this competition".

But Kallis, the outstanding all-rounder of his generation, said South Africa should take heart from the way England recovered after suffering an equally woeful first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup. "We win our next three games, we'll qualify".

"Our boys hurt, all of us hurt, incredibly".

Cricket South Africa even had a meeting with the team management to decide on the release of the players for the T20 league.

"For me, he's my No.4 batsman in the team because he's technically sound and you can give him more overs to build that innings", added Waqar, who is now a cricket commentator.

While the lack of preparedness was evident in their performance through the tournament, it has come to the fore that Cricket South Africa (CSA) wanted the players to plan better, but the cricketers were keen to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

When Shadab dismissed South African opener Quinton de Kock it meant he had reach the landmark of 50 wickets in his 38th one-day global.

Waqar further wrote that Pakistan would be closely watching England against Australia on Tuesday, which would be a crucial match, particularly if Australia beat England.
