Domingo backs De Villiers to fire against India

Pammachio Corsino | 14 Giugno, 2017, 04:26

Pakistan threw Pool B of the ICC Champions Trophy wide open when they beat the Proteas by 19 runs on the DLS method in a rain-shortened match at Edgbaston on Wednesday evening.

AB de Villiers is "due" a big score against Champions Trophy title-holders India according to fellow South Africa batsman David Miller after the Proteas skipper suffered the first golden duck of his one-day worldwide career.

Pakistan kept the Proteas to a modest 219 for eight in their 50 overs, having conceded exactly 100 more against title-holders India. After the spinners did the initial damage, paceman Hasan Ali took three for 24 in eight overs. Their best partnership was for the eighth wickets between David Miller and Kasigo Rabada who gave their total some respectability by adding 48 off 39 balls. But Babar Azam (31 not out) and Shoaib Malik (16 not out) took Pakistan to 119 for three off 27 overs when heavy rain stopped play at 7:41pm.

Captain Sarfraz Ahmed insisted his team has the ability to recover from the opening drubbing.

"We need to write it off, just see it as an average game".

The victor of the bout was decided via Duckworth and Lewis calculation and Pakistan's Hasan Ali was named man of the match.

De Villiers, struggling with a hamstring problem, added: "The hamstring is okay, felt a little tweak, but we'll check it out tomorrow (Thursday)".

"I think we can post a score of around 300, only if we apply ourselves properly with the bat and build a solid foundation", Afridi told the ICC's website.

The dynamic middle-order batter scored his first first-ball duck in 212 ODI innings when he rashly slapped Pakistan left-arm tweaker Imad Wasim to point.

The South African Captain AB de Villiers has already ruled any pressure at all against Pakistan, saying they have done all the required preparation for the match.

However, it wasn't completely the fault of South Africa's batsmen.

South Africa coach Russell Domingo has praised Pakistan spin bowling, after the Green shirts dismantled Proteas on Wednesday, at Edgbaston.

Wahab Riaz will no longer be part of the tournament after suffering an ankle injury and he will be replaced by Junaid Khan whereas Sarfraz Ahmed confirmed Ahmed Shehzad will be replaced by Fakhar Zaman. After bowling a short ball, Morkel deceived Zaman with an off-cutter, and the batsman edged it to the slip.

Morkel had Hafeez caught in the deep for a third wicket but by then Pakistan had accelerated the run rate and gone ahead of South Africa on the Duckworth/Lewis method.
