PAK vs SA ICC World Cup Match Prediction Today – Match 30, 2019
ICC World Cup 2019, London: South Africa look to deny Semi place for Pakistan when they face each other in 30 th match of World cup at Lords here on Sunday!
Both South Africa and Pakistan lost their previous matches against New Zealand and India respectively. As of now, South Africa has been out of the race for a place in semi-finals.
On the other hand, Pakistan needs to win all their fixtures to stay alive in the tournament.
Pakistan Team Updates :
Pakistan team has failed to live up to the expectations in this ongoing World cup. They suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of arch-rivals India which led to huge criticism from fans and former cricketers.
A clash with India is always considered as biggest battle and their defeat against them doesn’t go down well from their fans.
Their bowling unit looks good with the likes of Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz. Meanwhile, Amir is the biggest asset for Pakistan team in this ongoing world cup. But unfortunately, the batting order could not put up a good show to win games.
Pakistan’s fielding is very weak when compared to other teams. As there is some chance to qualify for semi-finals, they need to step up and improve their performance.
South Africa Team Updates :
On the other hand, South Africa’s position is quite similar to that of Pakistan. But, Proteas are already out of Semis race as they faced five losses and one washed out game.
Meanwhile, South Africa faced many issues like top players injuries, Ab De Villiers retirement and batting inconsistency.
In the last match, South Africa tried their level best for the win against New Zealand. Unfortunately, Kiwis skipper Kane Williamson managed to secure a thrilling win with his incredible century in the end. With this win, Proteas were taken out of Semis race and stood in ninth position in the points table.
Venue: Lords, London.
The average day time temperature will be around 30-degree Celsius here at Lords. As of now, we might not expect any rainfall threat for this match. But the cloud cover is about 50% which may not play a spoilsport for the game.
It was a flat batting pitch with no swing and bounce from it. It will definitely favor the batsman to score more runs. We can expect around 300-350 + scores from this pitch.
Pakistan vs South Africa Toss prediction:
According to weather and pitch reports, the captain who wins the toss might choose to chase down the target as it is a flat batting wicket.
Pakistan Team news:
We might expect a change from Pakistan team in the form of Shoaib Malik. Malik was heavily criticized by Pakistan media for their loss against India.
Shaheen Afridi might replace Malik in this match owing to his poor performance in this World cup.
Pakistan possible XI :
Sarfraz Ahmed (C), Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Hasnain

Pakistan vs South Africa match prediction:
As per recent form and performance, both teams might sweat out for the win as they faced back to back losses in the tournament.

We might expect a thriller from this match as both teams have a strong bowling line-up. But we are going with South Africa to win this match.
