England seamer Chris Woakes doubtful for first two Tests against South Africa

Just three days after suffering a humiliating 124-run defeat by title-holders India at Edgbaston in their opening group match, with former skipper Shahid Afridi among those slamming a "clueless" display, Pakistan's return to the Birmingham ground saw them make a mockery of the rankings which had them bottom and South Africa top in this eight-team one-day worldwide tournament.

Just three days after conceding 319 for three against arch-rivals India in a crushing 124-run opening defeat by the title-holders at Edgbaston, Pakistan were a transformed side on their return to the Birmingham ground.

Hasan Ali took three for 24, with David Miller's unbeaten 75 the only score of more than 33 in the innings. SAMAA TV spoke to Tahir's family and asked them whether they supported Pakistan or South Africa, since Imran was playing for the latter. "My issue is getting out there and really looking to take the game on". "It (rain) is something we can't control, if I want to say it that way". I dropped a catch in the last game, so I knew I had to cover that.

As South Africa bowled with too much width, debutant opener Fakhar Zaman helped himself to 31 from 23 balls before Morkel intervened.

"We'll be thinking firmly of coming back and beating South Africa", he said.

"So, we're going to be up for the fight".

Pakistan have applied to the ICC for an injury replacement, but they appear to have a stand-in already with them in Junaid Khan, who took four for 73 in a warm-up match against Bangladesh.

Yet, concerningly, the left-arm fast bowler was unable to complete his full allocation of overs because of cramp, despite being repeatedly on and off the field on what was a cool day.

Earlier, South African skipper AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to bat against Pakistan but latter dampened their spirits with an inspired bowling effort.

The leg-spinner, who changed allegiance after falling in love with his South African wife, played a key role in Saturday's match.

The live streaming of Pakistan vs South Africa will be telecasted on Star Sports 1 channel.

The cliche of Pakistani "unpredictability" may be wearing thin, at least in one-day worldwide cricket.

That left them well ahead of their target score of 101 so that, when the umpires decided a resumption was impossible, Pakistan had beaten South Africa under the Duckworth/Lewis method for the second successive ICC 50-over tournament following a 29-run win at the 2015 World Cup.
