As the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup rolls on, Pakistan and South Africa prepare to do battle on the pitch in Match 29. South Africa is in good positioning right now in Pool B with three victories in four matches. Pakistan isn’t doing too bad either as they are 2-2. Now, they will face off and you can watch it streaming live online.
Pakistan lost their opener against India by 76 runs and their second match to West Indies by 150 runs. They rebounded to defeat Zimbabwe by 20 runs in Match 23, and then three days later, beat UAE by 129 runs.
On the other hand, South Africa won their opening match over Sri Lanka by 62 runs before losing to India (by 130 runs) in their second match. They bounced back nicely with a 257-run demolition of West Indies and a 201-run thrashing of Ireland.
Right now, both teams and fans are hoping the match will take place at all. Sport 24 reported that weather could be bad and some heavy rain showers may happen in the afternoon. As well as South Africa has been playing, Pakistan may not mind taking the point in a washout.
On the other hand, NDTV Sports is reporting that Pakistan really needs the victory over South Africa. Coach Waqar Younis knows that a win would prove a lot to many teams in the Cricket World Cup.
“Look it (win) definitely changed the body language of the players because a win always make you feel comfortable and confident, but I still feel that we need to win against a bigger team like South Africa to tell the world that we are around.”
The match between South Africa vs. Pakistan is scheduled to begin at 14:00 local time (01:00 GMT) on Friday, March 6, at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand.
ESPN will begin online streaming at 7:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 4, but that is just one option to watch South Africa vs. Pakistan live. ESPN does charge a fee to watch all of the matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, so be aware of that.
