Hello, and welcome to Edgbaston, for South Africa against Pakistan in the

:00:23.:00:30.

ICC Champions Trophy as the tournament's top-ranked sides takes

:00:31.:00:34.

on the lowest. This is the second round of games in the group B and

:00:35.:00:39.

while South Africa were beaten on Saturday, Pakistan are looking for a

:00:40.:00:42.

much improved performance after being thrashed by their archrivals,

:00:43.:00:47.

India, in their opening game. South Africa are second in the group B

:00:48.:00:51.

table behind India on the run rate, South Africa are bottom with the

:00:52.:00:59.

worst run rate in the group. Pakistan pace bowler Wahab Riaz

:01:00.:01:02.

injured his ankle in the opening match against India, and has been

:01:03.:01:06.

ruled out of the tournament since. Incomes Junaid Khan, the other

:01:07.:01:11.

changes sees Ahmed Shehzad replaced by debutant is a man, who came into

:01:12.:01:17.

heavy criticism after a woeful performance. More is expected of

:01:18.:01:20.

them in this match. By contrast, South Africa and number one in the

:01:21.:01:24.

world in the one-day game with world-class talent throughout their

:01:25.:01:28.

11. No surprise that they are unchanged from the side that beat

:01:29.:01:32.

Sri Lanka first time out. A win will see them guarantee a semifinal spot.

:01:33.:01:37.

South Africa won the toss, and Captain AB de Villiers chose to bat

:01:38.:01:41.

on the same pitch used in the two previous games at Edgbaston. The

:01:42.:01:47.

weather may play a part in the trophy again with rain forecast in

:01:48.:01:53.

the early evening. The wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock and former captain

:01:54.:01:56.

Hashim Amla opened batting for South Africa. COMMENTATOR: Bathed in

:01:57.:02:04.

sunshine, we start the game... Not the ideal start.

:02:05.:02:12.

That is beautifully played! I wonder if it will make it way to the

:02:13.:02:20.

boundary... A lot of brain, the outfield is pretty slow. Comfortably

:02:21.:02:24.

back for a third. Quinton de Kock is away. He thrives on anything short

:02:25.:02:29.

and wide. He wasn't that bad with his delivery, Mohammad Amir.

:02:30.:02:46.

Opening the face, nudging it through off-side. Getting back for a second,

:02:47.:02:54.

Quinton de Kock pushes by Thurber decides against it.

:02:55.:02:58.

A big throw from the outfield. Long boundary, heading into the wind.

:02:59.:03:06.

Could be an opportunity... If he hits, he is gone. Miss judged,

:03:07.:03:11.

back by Quinton de Kock. Shoaib Malik that the order, Quinton de

:03:12.:03:17.

Kock ended up giving up. Three stumps, add this to your poor

:03:18.:03:21.

fielding package, got to hit here. Not far away, off balance, with more

:03:22.:03:25.

time than he thought. He was wide. Got to hit the stumps. Clips nasty

:03:26.:03:36.

for Hashim Amla. You mentioned the slowness of the outfield. Come to

:03:37.:03:41.

for a second. Deciding against it, three runs from the over. Ten

:03:42.:03:49.

without loss. LOUD APPEALS He stays, will they consider it?

:03:50.:03:56.

On the angle, the left arm, the stuff that you've been talking about

:03:57.:04:00.

nipping the ball back in, the lbws will be slightly hard. You are

:04:01.:04:03.

right. Standing up a little bit, going down. But they are bowling

:04:04.:04:06.

well here. Edged, wide of slip, that will be

:04:07.:04:21.

the boundary. The first of the day for Quinton de Kock. Just searching,

:04:22.:04:28.

just wanting to pounce on anything a fraction wide. He threw his hands at

:04:29.:04:36.

it. No third slip. He goes for the change-up, a slow

:04:37.:04:41.

delivery. Unfortunately it was way within length. Easily put away for

:04:42.:04:52.

Quinton de Kock. Dragged in again. Six gone, 25 without loss. Their

:04:53.:05:00.

raters, dragged down. Helped on his way, probably the worst delivery

:05:01.:05:07.

that it has bowled, but nicely played. He gets into a beautiful

:05:08.:05:16.

position. A prolific run scorer. -- probably the worst delivery Mohammad

:05:17.:05:25.

Amir has bowled. Flicking it away, that takes some

:05:26.:05:29.

stopping. Accelerating with such timing. Beautiful! He is looking

:05:30.:05:40.

good. Once again, the last-minute fleck and he has got this great

:05:41.:05:46.

ability to find the gap, and get it past the man at mid-wicket. It was

:05:47.:05:50.

so well timed, it was always going to be a four.

:05:51.:06:01.

Again, through the on-side, not far from the field. Might have been

:06:02.:06:07.

worth a dive to cut it into one. Coming back for two. LOUD APPEALS

:06:08.:06:17.

It is worth a shout, he has gone! The change has got the wicket. Look

:06:18.:06:23.

at Pakistan, they know it is a big one. Clearly, he is a mood lifter.

:06:24.:06:28.

They have got a big one. Hashim Amla walking back in front of the stumps.

:06:29.:06:34.

An extra bit of pace, no spin on it. The ball came back ever so slightly

:06:35.:06:39.

and hit it in front of the stumps. The umpire has no hesitation.

:06:40.:06:48.

Stepping up nicely, but gone with 16. South Africa, one down for four.

:06:49.:06:59.

Faf du Plessis, a good strike rate and a wealth of experience. 32 years

:07:00.:07:16.

old. He is away! Nicely played, the timing is there as well. Could be a

:07:17.:07:31.

powerful player, Quinton de Kock. A good effort at mid-off. He's got to

:07:32.:07:37.

be in. You are not having a four. Should be able to stop the run, and

:07:38.:07:42.

stop the rotation of strike. 54 South Africa. -- 50, four South

:07:43.:07:51.

Africa. It is a shout! I wonder whether there is a review coming?

:07:52.:07:57.

They will talk about it. Mohammad Hafeez is looking teen, what will he

:07:58.:08:04.

do? Time is ticking, they are having a conversation... He is looking

:08:05.:08:11.

keen. Sarfraz Ahmed had the best view of that. Dragged him out of it.

:08:12.:08:15.

Sliding to leg stump and hitting it, they miss out! Let's have a look at

:08:16.:08:22.

where the keeper was going... No, he did not go too far down the leg

:08:23.:08:27.

side. If he really swept across to the leg stump... Into the air!

:08:28.:08:37.

Varies the boundary. It takes a while. I wonder if that is the sign

:08:38.:08:43.

that Quinton de Kock is going to get himself going? He got the thumbs up

:08:44.:08:49.

from Mohammad Hafeez, it was a cracking shot. The value of losing

:08:50.:08:55.

your -- abusing your feet so you can pitch the ball anywhere. Opening up

:08:56.:09:00.

his front foot so he can get through mid-wicket.

:09:01.:09:07.

LOUD APPEALS It is given! Going to the on-side...

:09:08.:09:17.

We have seen two lbws against the spin. Losing his focus and patience

:09:18.:09:27.

as well. Looking to play the sweep shot, in front of the stumps. It was

:09:28.:09:32.

quicker from Hafeez. Not a big spinner of the ball, not a big turn

:09:33.:09:37.

but on the day, it is working. They have got a big one. Quinton de Kock

:09:38.:09:42.

threatened take the game away. Vintage South Africa, 60-2. AB de

:09:43.:09:48.

Villiers, another prolific run scorer in all forms.

:09:49.:09:56.

Gone! Looking to carve that way through the off-side. Imad Wasim has

:09:57.:10:03.

done it, the spinners are doing a job here for Pakistan. A massive

:10:04.:10:11.

wicket, and boy, did in this crowd enjoy it? The noise in the

:10:12.:10:18.

stadium... The first ball with a bit of width. AB de Villiers lets his

:10:19.:10:22.

hands go, sliding it straight to Mohammad Hafeez's backward point.

:10:23.:10:28.

What a dismissal for Pakistan. Well, they are joyous out in the middle

:10:29.:10:32.

and joy is in the crowd, as AB de Villiers goes, first ball. 61-3.

:10:33.:10:39.

Scenes here at Edgbaston, if you are a Pakistan fan, they wanted a better

:10:40.:10:47.

performance and they are getting it. David Miller, the batsmen with a

:10:48.:10:48.

strike rate of that. Bringing the leading edge into play.

:10:49.:11:07.

Lbw. The fans are obviously extremely happy. That is well

:11:08.:11:15.

played... A fast outfield. It will be four. A brilliant effort from the

:11:16.:11:22.

field, unable to get it to pull off. A welcome boundary for South Africa.

:11:23.:11:29.

Nicely played, using whatever pace he has two scoop it in. The fifth

:11:30.:11:43.

boundary of the day. Bowling inside edge, the change is

:11:44.:11:50.

working again magnificently. Pakistan dishing up further damage,

:11:51.:11:53.

denting South Africa's running in this innings. That suggested that

:11:54.:12:06.

that would stay down. He played it well away from the front pad.

:12:07.:12:11.

Getting it inside edge. Two balls to make an impact. 90-4 for Pakistan.

:12:12.:12:21.

Faf du Plessis goes for 26. Six men in the circle. That will do very

:12:22.:12:32.

nicely, it is a big six! And a great hit. Using his feet, launching that

:12:33.:12:40.

one into orbit. A magnificent strike, that. Very powerful David

:12:41.:12:45.

Mellor. Bringing up a 104 South Africa. Good use of the peace, --

:12:46.:12:59.

bringing up a 100, for South Africa. There is the big shot, long-on! No,

:13:00.:13:06.

it is over it! Risky, but it came off. He ends the spell with the six.

:13:07.:13:18.

114-4. He decides to take matters into his own hands, a change of

:13:19.:13:30.

field, and it goes on to the attack. Edged, taken! That is an excellent

:13:31.:13:35.

catch. That is working perfectly for Pakistan. They managed to take a

:13:36.:13:41.

beauty. Good bowling from Azhar Ali, he came around and over. On the

:13:42.:13:50.

angle, playing in front of Square. A little bit of width, taking outside

:13:51.:13:56.

edge. Another wicket falling for the South Africans. And pressure

:13:57.:14:00.

continues. The crowd are into it. South Africa bind themselves with

:14:01.:14:04.

118-5. JP Duminy goes for eight.

:14:05.:14:13.

LOUD APPEALS Gone! Bowled him! Beautifully done

:14:14.:14:20.

by Azhar Ali, he is on a roll! What a cracker of a delivery. An absolute

:14:21.:14:25.

Jaffer, the perfect length. You often hear them talking about that,

:14:26.:14:30.

but he's got the crowd fired up. Two in two. South Africa have been

:14:31.:14:35.

rocked. A little tail away with the left-hander, he beats edge.

:14:36.:14:43.

Clatters into the stump. Azhar Ali comedy beauty, that is what the

:14:44.:14:51.

crowd are saying. -- Azhar Ali, you beauty! Jerome Taylor got the

:14:52.:14:59.

quickest hat-trick ever in this form of cricket.

:15:00.:15:06.

He is aware that they throw it at the stumps. A brilliant atmosphere

:15:07.:15:17.

here at Edgbaston. The first maiden of the innings, it

:15:18.:15:42.

is all Pakistan. 121-6. Crunched, absolutely crunched by Chris Morris.

:15:43.:15:47.

A sweep at cover point... Getting around. Very good work. Excellent

:15:48.:16:10.

work, indeed. For this young man. Bowled, nipping down... He is going

:16:11.:16:14.

to review, he has got to review this. I think there is a possible

:16:15.:16:18.

chance that this is missing leg stump. Its wings a lot. -- it swings

:16:19.:16:23.

a lot. I would like to see the leg side...

:16:24.:16:50.

No bat on ball. You can go out right? I can see clearly that the

:16:51.:17:01.

ball is missing the bat. Stand-by, Richard, waiting for the ball

:17:02.:17:02.

tracking... Richard, I recommend that you change

:17:03.:17:21.

your decision. You are on the screen now. Well called. Missing leg, late

:17:22.:17:35.

tale. Bowled, straight through but a no ball. Overstepped. Maurice

:17:36.:17:43.

knocked over, a no ball called. Three hits. Is this the moment but

:17:44.:17:47.

South Africa needed? He will be kicking himself. How far? A good no

:17:48.:17:58.

ball. A big no ball. An excellent call. Do you know what

:17:59.:18:10.

Chris Morris was trying to do there? That was interesting. Beautifully

:18:11.:18:28.

bowled! It goes high into the air. Hasan takes the catch. Pakistan with

:18:29.:18:34.

another breakthrough, breaking this partnership. Chris Morris goes.

:18:35.:18:45.

Long-on deck. Seven and a bit, 7.3 overs left. Taking long-on. Exposing

:18:46.:18:53.

the tail with seven overs to go. Catch on the long-on boundary. Chris

:18:54.:19:13.

Morris goes for 28. 50 up for David Mellor. A valuable 50 for his team.

:19:14.:19:21.

The slowest international 50 over half-century for him. Brilliant. He

:19:22.:19:33.

hits his toe first. Has not hit the toe first... Khan thinks it has he

:19:34.:19:38.

goes down to the keeper, he thinks that it hits his toe. Can you show

:19:39.:19:50.

me the no ball first, please? It is a foul... Going to front on spin.

:19:51.:20:01.

Looks like straight from the bat. I am happy with that. Straight from

:20:02.:20:07.

the bat. You can stay with your initial decision. Yeah, OK. Junaid

:20:08.:20:17.

Khan will leave it there. Bowling well, 43 overs gone.

:20:18.:20:29.

Short, this could be the shackles broken... And it is. South Africa

:20:30.:20:34.

have their first boundary since the 39th over. He deserves that

:20:35.:20:39.

boundary, Kagiso Rabada. He plays nicely here. A very talented young

:20:40.:20:52.

man, both with ball and bat. Once again, thinking of the second.

:20:53.:20:55.

Comfortably back again to the highest over of the innings for

:20:56.:21:05.

South Africa. 199-7. Eventually cutting loose, the perfect delivery,

:21:06.:21:09.

what he's been looking for for a long period. The half volley. I

:21:10.:21:15.

think it is Miller time. Just 11 deliveries left in the innings. Was

:21:16.:21:21.

not that far out, just a inches short. Thick edge, the perfect

:21:22.:21:34.

result for Kagiso Rabada. Going away for a boundary. Now he is

:21:35.:21:47.

frustrated. But smiling. Edged away, playing good shots. Up into the air,

:21:48.:21:58.

with all of this wind it is going to be a difficult one. Hasan takes it

:21:59.:22:02.

superbly. Brilliant fielding. Kagiso Rabada did not get all of it. The

:22:03.:22:10.

end wicket is down. Ali, who else? He has done brilliantly. That was a

:22:11.:22:14.

difficult catch and he has got the crowd pumped up as well. Swirling

:22:15.:22:19.

wind, he was always getting it away from him. Not only did I enjoyed the

:22:20.:22:25.

catch but I enjoyed the celebration. Muted for the last five overs but

:22:26.:22:28.

look at him take this catch. He says, come on, we are playing for

:22:29.:22:34.

you! He has been brilliant, Azhar Ali. A talented young man.

:22:35.:22:44.

The last delivery... And he gets the contact he is after. Eventually

:22:45.:22:51.

picking up a boundary to enter the innings which takes South Africa to

:22:52.:22:56.

219-8, with Dave Mellor unbeaten on 75 of 104 deliveries.

:22:57.:23:05.

The South African innings soon came off the rails. They staged some form

:23:06.:23:15.

of recovery after they had slumped to 118-6.

:23:16.:23:42.

Rabada helped move them along for a final total of 219-8. It was a farce

:23:43.:23:46.

the improved bowling performance from Pakistan. Hassan Ali also took

:23:47.:23:49.

three for 24. The whole attack kept a stranglehold on the South African

:23:50.:23:53.

batsmen throughout. This is the third match. I think it is a bit

:23:54.:24:00.

slow. Nice wicket to wicket from you. The spinners bowled nicely.

:24:01.:24:04.

That is what I do. I bowl wicket to wicket. I think, on this kind of

:24:05.:24:15.

wicket, it suits me a lot. How impressed when you with the fielding

:24:16.:24:19.

effort? It was a vast improvement from the other day. I don't know

:24:20.:24:24.

what happened in the last game. We are a very good unit. Today we

:24:25.:24:34.

showed we are a good unit. The crowd started to gather after the

:24:35.:24:41.

interval. The former captain beginning Pakistan chase. Biggest

:24:42.:24:48.

shock of the champions Trophy so far. Playing his first one-day

:24:49.:24:57.

international. It is setup for a cracking contest.

:24:58.:25:08.

He did not quite finished the over. He should pick up a couple. The

:25:09.:25:22.

first, it will be two without loss. Not perfectly timed but it will be

:25:23.:25:30.

good enough. The first boundary. He does not waste an opportunity to

:25:31.:25:39.

punish it. A nice drive. Chase by de Villiers. That is not good. He wants

:25:40.:25:47.

to chase it. As much as you want to stay up here, the importance of your

:25:48.:25:50.

team correct you might be best not to be there. The right leg was

:25:51.:26:01.

dragging. The arm wanted to go over. The hamstring was pulling. Trying to

:26:02.:26:09.

continue. A lovely shot. Nicely played. Showing it early. Again, the

:26:10.:26:18.

width. Wow! That is even better. Parnell,

:26:19.:26:29.

good wit. -- width. Push for two. Bowls in. Oh, no. The

:26:30.:27:03.

cop with a great throw. He survived. -- Quinton de Kock. 23 without loss.

:27:04.:27:14.

How far is that? A couple of bounces over the boundary.

:27:15.:27:24.

He'd just let his hands fly. Get it up almost the top of the balance.

:27:25.:27:33.

Just be two bounces into the fence. Oh, and again. They are loving it.

:27:34.:27:40.

The new hero of Pakistan. He has been so good on that so far

:27:41.:28:08.

this innings. Pakistan with the chance to qualify.

:28:09.:28:19.

The Sri Lanka game takes on massive significance. Morkel, another good

:28:20.:28:33.

short one. Is it limited him? He is just laughing it off. I do not know

:28:34.:28:42.

about laughing it off, he is teeing it off. I reckon it will be a shot a

:28:43.:28:52.

ball. Aged. I think it has been taken. It has. Staying leg side of

:28:53.:28:59.

the ball. The change to morkle has been a good one. The offcuts are

:29:00.:29:07.

working really well. Shying away from the line of that one and

:29:08.:29:11.

looking to create a bit of width and room. Time to carry through to the

:29:12.:29:17.

slips. 30 14 Zaman. That is a poor shot. It

:29:18.:29:38.

is taken. What have you done? Catching practice at Edgbaston. He

:29:39.:29:48.

was not 100% against Morkel. He was struggling with the bounce. Got it

:29:49.:29:55.

right out of the middle of the bat. That unnecessary tumble. Gone two

:29:56.:30:09.

wickets and one down. 41-2. The new batsmen brings youth at one end and

:30:10.:30:12.

spear events at the other. The batsmen is not really going

:30:13.:30:38.

after it. He has men on the leg side.

:30:39.:30:55.

He just gets in on it. Two there. The little bit of something, trying

:30:56.:31:07.

to force a strike and find the boundary. Away it goes. He has just

:31:08.:31:13.

gained himself a little bit of room. That was high energy. Plenty of

:31:14.:31:29.

energy. His fielding has come on leaps and bounds since he started

:31:30.:31:34.

playing for South Africa. His commitment has never been doubted.

:31:35.:31:42.

Scoops it back and gets himself up. A little bit of drizzle but I'm not

:31:43.:31:48.

going to think about the rain. We seem to much of it so far. Boundary.

:31:49.:31:54.

Finally. Maurice going for the short pitched

:31:55.:32:05.

delivery. Well played here by Hafeez. Babar scoops it. Tries to

:32:06.:32:14.

get over the top of it. The placement was good. That is the key.

:32:15.:32:21.

A big shout. No. Now the clock things it is inside edge. They are

:32:22.:32:39.

going to have a look. He decides to go upstairs. Can you show me the

:32:40.:32:44.

replay? You can go to the front now. Can you

:32:45.:33:02.

show me the leg side Hot Spot, please? Can you show me the front?

:33:03.:33:26.

It looks like pad first. Can you rock and roll? For me it is pad

:33:27.:33:41.

first. I am happy with that. Impact in line.

:33:42.:34:02.

Four runs from the over. 76-2. That concludes the 20th over. Despite

:34:03.:34:12.

what happens with the weather we are running on. If it is rain affected.

:34:13.:34:25.

That's a big shot. A beautifully crafted six. Down the ground. He has

:34:26.:34:34.

broken the shackles. The first attacking shot from Hafeez.

:34:35.:34:46.

That is a lovely shot. Beautifully timed. Great execution of the touch

:34:47.:34:54.

shot. The 50 partnership of Pakistan. The

whole night he has offered the freedom of the Pakistan batsmen.

:35:09.:35:20.

Catch is that call and it is taken. Running in. Morkel has worked

:35:21.:35:31.

wonderfully for South Africa. Trying to hang in there but he was caught

:35:32.:35:38.

with a good catch. Morkel breaks through. Forget again. Not easy to

:35:39.:35:46.

site the ball in the background. It is dark and murky. This really is a

:35:47.:35:59.

pressure catch. Pakistan 93-3. He has loads of experience and he will

:36:00.:36:14.

be tested by Morkel. Impressively trying to tackle the ball in the

:36:15.:36:16.

field. This was special. Morkel looking for support. It is

:36:17.:36:35.

given as a four. He was trying to collect the ball. Just to feet got

:36:36.:36:43.

tangled. It is slippery in the outfield. That has gone into

:36:44.:36:58.

defence. A good attacking shot. He is playing a very fine hand. South

:36:59.:37:07.

Africa should think differently. He has taken advantage of anything

:37:08.:37:12.

loose. A slow but steady partnership. He has been

:37:13.:37:22.

outstanding. That one has been flayed away. For the most part,

:37:23.:37:30.

Morkel has told Babar to look out. If he gets into here he might bring

:37:31.:37:35.

his country home. There is a predictability about the length from

:37:36.:37:40.

Morkel. Just staying where he was inside the line of the ball. This

:37:41.:37:52.

was more firm. Nice and over the infield. He followed the bat.

:37:53.:38:01.

That was a lovely drive. It will hit the fence. That was beautifully

:38:02.:38:11.

timed. Now maintaining good balance. It was

:38:12.:38:30.

always going to be a four. Trying to get it past the outstretched hands.

:38:31.:38:36.

How are they rating this? Pakistan are. They are 19 ahead at this

:38:37.:38:52.

stage. If there is no more play, bay windows. Right, we have a pause

:38:53.:39:03.

because of rain. -- they win this. Pakistan richly deserve the position

:39:04.:39:06.

because they were outstanding with the ball. There were a few hiccups

:39:07.:39:16.

when they went out to bat. Babar is still out there run 31 and Malik has

:39:17.:39:27.

supported his wealth. -- him well. The bowling figures are now

:39:28.:39:31.

expensive. Morkel the outstanding man. To hear was solid and Morris

:39:32.:39:40.

was solid stop wickets need to be the order of the day. Welcome back

:39:41.:39:51.

to Edgbaston, where their covers are down. They are still down and they

:39:52.:39:57.

have hunkered down for the night. The match has been abandoned. The

:39:58.:40:02.

rain has persisted. It got to the point where the umpires had no

:40:03.:40:07.

choice. Not much to inspect other than covers and rain falling.

:40:08.:40:16.

Pakistan's steady progress hit the wobble. But Babar and Babar kept

:40:17.:40:31.

their heads. When the rain eventually came and no further play

:40:32.:40:35.

was possible, they were hard enough ahead of the rate to secure victory.

:40:36.:40:40.

South Africa cannot blame this defeat on their bowlers. Morkel took

:40:41.:40:49.

an astonishing three 418 from seven overs. It was a hopeless task after

:40:50.:40:55.

not scoring enough runs. A much improved Pakistan registers the

:40:56.:40:59.

biggest shock of the trophy so far, beating South Africa by 19 runs to

:41:00.:41:07.

the delight of the hordes of supporters who braved the cold here

:41:08.:41:10.

at Edgbaston. It is very important for us. In all departments we were

:41:11.:41:17.

very good today. On the betting side of things quite what to put that

:41:18.:41:24.

down to? There was good pressure. We lost our wickets which was not a

:41:25.:41:28.

great response. It put us on the back foot. I thought we recovered

:41:29.:41:35.

really well with David. Some really good partnerships around. We got

:41:36.:41:40.

into a really good position. After that, it does not matter. We came

:41:41.:41:46.

out with a good attitude on the field. A tough one. The way you

:41:47.:41:51.

started you knew it would not be easy but you are looking to hold

:41:52.:41:56.

wickets for the latter stages of the game. Is that how you felt? You

:41:57.:42:00.

never know when the rain will come. There was talk of the rain coming.

:42:01.:42:04.

You're not sure when it will happen. You don't want to push too hard. I

:42:05.:42:10.

would have attacked a lot more in certain areas. That is part of the

:42:11.:42:14.

game. We'll outplayed by the better team. How impressed me with your

:42:15.:42:26.

spinners? They bowled really well in the right areas. What about the

:42:27.:42:32.

fielding? They should be very happy today. I still top Group B with

:42:33.:42:43.

three teams level on two each. Pakistan will now fancy their

:42:44.:42:48.

chances of reaching the semifinals. Group B suddenly has a little more

:42:49.:42:54.

spice. From a very damp Edgbaston, goodbye.
