Pakistan won their second match of the ICC Champions Trophy against South Africa by 19 runs (D/L method). The game was played on June 07, 2017, at Edgbaston.

Junaid Khan found his place instead of the injured Wahab Riaz in the Pakistan line-up. For the Asian side, Fakhar Zaman will make his ODI debut in place of Ahmed Shehzad. On the other hand, South Africa will stick on to the same playing eleven which beat Sri Lanka in the opening game.

Pak vs SA final scores

Pakistan 119/3 in 27 overs.

South Africa 219/8 in 50 overs.

South Africa wins the toss and they will bat first.

In a recently written column, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi lashed out against the team who portrayed some pathetic cricket in their previous match against India.

Afridi wrote that the team should try to play with a positive mindset to keep their chances alive in this tournament.

Whatever be the case, South Africa are the favorites in this game, and Pakistan is not. South Africa's comfortable win over Sri Lanka has raised their morale, and it will help them to overcome the Pakistan attack with ease.

To battle the South African winning spree, Pakistan need to be aggressive in their approach, but considering the current form of Sarfraz Ahmed and his boys, it is very much unlikely that they will pose even the slightest threat to the Proteas' winning chances.
