Katya Witney, Abhishek Mukherjee and Yas Rana reflect on Pakistan's 33-run (DLS) win against South Africa - a result that just about keeps their semi-final hopes alive heading into the final round of Super 12 fixtures.
Pakistan lost early wickets again and slumped to 43-4, but Iftikhar Ahmed and Shadab Khan turned things around with excellent half-centuries to help them post 185-9.
Despite losing two early wickets of their own, South Africa started positively in the chase and looked well set at 65-2 after 7 overs.
However, Shadab Khan changed the game with two wickets in his first over before the rain eventually set in.When the players re-emerged after the delay, South Africa needed 73 runs from 30 balls - a target they fell well short of.
