THAT'S A WRAP!

Thank you for tuning in, let's just say, we're finally know our fate. We're flying home after July 6th.

Stay tuned to our site or on our socials as Sport24's Lloyd Burnard watched this entire innings LIVE (haha) and will be providing us the latest news, reactions from the Proteas camp.

What excuse will the Proteas make for another woeful performance? Or will they own up to their mistakes? We'll have to wait and see over the next few days...

Tomorrow's CWC match: Bangladesh v Afghanistan - 11:30 SA time

Next Proteas game: Friday against Sri Lanka - 11:30 SA time

SNIPPETS FROM FAF AFTER THE MATCH:

"We're not playing great cricket, we started poorly with the ball. I thought 300 plus was 30 too many... We struggling with a bit of confidence in the batting lineup. Our confidence has been down losing the last three games.

"There hasn't been enough guys like Imran standing up. The biggest is doing justice, we're letting ourselves down in the dressing room..."

MAN OF THE MATCH:

Haris Sohail for his fiery 89 off 59 balls, which included 9 fours and 3 sixes

23 Jun 2019

STAND OUTS:

Faf du Plessis stood tall with his 63 off 79 balls, Wahab and Shadab each took three wickets for Pakistan

Haris Sohail was the pick of the Pakistani batsmen scoring 89

Lungi Ngidi was the pick of the Proteas bowlers with his 3/64

23 Jun 2019

Final over

23 Jun 2019

This has been such a disappointing game for the Proteas, they had nothing to lose heading in and could've played with so much freedom.

Yet, we witness this...

Whatever is happening in that dressing room is a MAJOR CONCERN because this is not the same side who defeated Pakistan 3-2 in the five ODIs earlier this year. 

23 Jun 2019

Imran Tahir is the final man in

23 Jun 2019

GONE!

Lungi Ngidi is bowled by a beautiful swinging delivery from Wahab.

Oh forgot to say, Lungi Ngidi is the new batsman in, but it doesn't matter

WHAT A BEAUT!

Chris Morris smashes a beautiful straight drive for a SIX!

23 Jun 2019

Unpopular opinion: Why isn't JP Duminy playing? Surely he is a better option than David Miller?

23 Jun 2019

23 Jun 2019

He departs for 31 off 37 balls

SA are 192/6 in 40.5 overs

23 Jun 2019

WICKET!

23 Jun 2019

RELIEF

Pakistan appeal as they think they got Miller trapped LBW, umpire gives it OUT

Miller goes straight upstairs and refers the decision and ultra-edge shows that he had some bat on it.

The decision is overturned and Miller is NOT OUT!

Breathe....

23 Jun 2019

South Africa review a OUT LBW decision 

23 Jun 2019

23 Jun 2019

WICKET!

23 Jun 2019

23 Jun 2019

It's quite cloudy at Lord's. Not sure if there's a sudden threat of rain imminent 

23 Jun 2019

At least South Africa's fielding hasn't been as bad as Pakistans...

23 Jun 2019

TWO CONSECUTIVE DROP CATCHES!

Rassie van der Dussen was firstly dropped by the Pakistan skipper behind the stumps as Van der Dussen clearly edges it behind.

Then Miller goes wide and smashes it high to Amir at the third man boundary.

Poor Wahab Riaz, he would've gotten two wickets.

23 Jun 2019

A little partnership is building between Van der Dussen and Miller, but it seems like scoring is tough out there.

SA need 146 off 82 balls
