Pakistan’s emphatic victory over South Africa seems to have finally washed over the spoils of an unimpressive beginning to the team’s World Cup campaign so far.

For Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed the journey so far at the World Cup, particularly in the last twenty-four hours, has been life-changing. Ahmed has been facing scathing criticism and furious public response from the start of this tournament, and last week turned out to be particularly rough, after India’s demolition job on Pakistan came heavily at his expense.

Fans sequestered him endlessly with vitriolic comments, with some going as far as fat-shaming him and calling him a ‘fat-pig’. Others accused his team of remaining stubbornly unfit and maintaining an unhealthy lifestyle filled with ‘pizzas and burgers’ and ‘no dangal’.

All this was finally put to rest for the best on Sunday, when Sarafaz and his boys sent the Proteas hurtling out of the World Cup and once again became the true Comeback Kid of cricket. The unison between the fans and the team was instantaneous and Ahmed was also seen giving autographs after the game.

Not just that, but a video of Ahmed doing the hard yards at the Lords Cricket ground all by himself before the showdown against South Africa, has further melted hearts. In the viral footage, the skipper can be seen running one lap after the other all alone.

People shared the video on Twitter and elsewhere, praising him for his indomitable spirit. Fans were also quick to turn over a new leaf and extol sincere apologies to him for their brutish treatment.

Pakistan’s emphatic victory over South Africa seems to have finally washed over the spoils of an unimpressive beginning to the team’s World Cup campaign so far.

A picture of a fan, who brought the banner of “Sarfaraz We Are Sorry”, to the Pakistan vs South Africa match is also doing rounds on social media.

As the team and fans prepare themselves to move to Birmingham with hope for their next showdown against the unbeaten New Zealand, social media was guzzled with apologies to Ahmed.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • 15:30 (IST)

      Has he taken it? Yes, he has! Soft signal was out. Mujeeb tosses one up and Liton goes for a drive but couldn’t keep it on the ground. Shahidi at cover takes a very good low catch and the replays too suggest that his fingers were underneath the ball. Liton will have to walk back.

    • 14:41 (IST)

      Afghanistan have won the toss and will field first. Dawlat and Shenwari come in for Alam and Zazai. Meanwhile, both Saifuddin and Mosaddek return to the playing XI for Bangladesh in place of Rubel and Sabbir.

    • 13:30 (IST)

      Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 2019 World Cup encounter between Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Coming off a stellar performance against India, Afghanistan will aim to get their first win. Meanwhile, Bangladesh are almost out of the contention for the semi-finals as they currently sit on five points after playing six games. However, if they manage to win their remaining games and a few other results go in their favour, they might just sneak into the top four. 










    15:39 (IST)

    Both Shakib and Tamim are really good at working the ball through the leg side and Mujeeb and Nabi will have to bowl slightly outside off and make them drive. Three singles from this over. Bangladesh are 31 for 1 in seven overs.










    15:37 (IST)

    The offspinner starts with a three-run over. He will keep it nice and straight and will force the batsman to commit an error. Both Shakib and Tamim will have to be slightly careful and try to build a partnership. 










    15:34 (IST)

    Two left-handers, and Nabi comes into the attack.










    15:33 (IST)

    Bangladesh’s run-machine in this tournament, Shakib walks out to bat. End of another solid over from Mujeeb, a wicket and two runs off it. 










    15:30 (IST)

    Has he taken it? Yes, he has! Soft signal was out. Mujeeb tosses one up and Liton goes for a drive but couldn’t keep it on the ground. Shahidi at cover takes a very good low catch and the replays too suggest that his fingers were underneath the ball. Liton will have to walk back.










    15:26 (IST)

    Dawlat Zadran drops one very full and Liton works it towards deep mid-wicket for three runs. Tamim too got things going with an uppish drive that just went to the right of the fielder at mid-off. Four overs done, Bangladesh are 23/0.










    15:22 (IST)

    A very good over from Mujeeb, just three singles off it. Both Liton and Tamim will look to go after pacers rather than taking on someone like Mujeeb so early in the innings.










    15:18 (IST)

    Dawlat Zadran comes on to bowl the second over and Liton greets him with a solid punch past point for four. The right-hander has already scored two boundaries and is looking in decent touch. Bangladesh are 13 for no loss in two overs.










    15:15 (IST)

    Misfield in the very first over as Rahmat at point allows the ball to run away for four. Solid start this for Bangladesh, eight runs off the first over.










    15:09 (IST)

    And, we are set to go. Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das are out to bat, while Mujeeb Ur Rahman will start the proceedings for Afghanistan.










    15:03 (IST)

    Time for the national anthems. First it is going to be Afghanistan’s followed by Bangladesh’s.










    14:48 (IST)

    Mortaza – We wanted to bat first anyway as it’s a used pitch, so wants to put runs on the board. The pitch here has been different from the others, has been slow and spun a bit. It’s a used pitch as I said and that’s why we wanted to bat.










    14:47 (IST)

    Naib – We want to bowl first. Conditions look good for bowling and we played a game here, so we know the pitch. In the second innings against India, it looked alright throughout and this looks similar. We want to restrict Bangladesh to a chaseable total. We had a good chance to beat India and we’re confident that we can do better today.










    14:41 (IST)

    Afghanistan have won the toss and will field first. Dawlat and Shenwari come in for Alam and Zazai. Meanwhile, both Saifuddin and Mosaddek return to the playing XI for Bangladesh in place of Rubel and Sabbir.










    14:29 (IST)

    The toss has been delayed by 10 minutes but the covers are coming off. The match will start at 15:10 (IST) if the rain doesn’t return.










    14:28 (IST)

    Players to Watch Out For

    Rashid Khan: Having been smashed for 110 runs by England, the leg-spinner came back strong against India, recording figures of 1-39. He remains a match winner and will be hard to get away on a pitch that will offer some assistance.

    Shakib al Hasan: The world’s number one ranked all-rounder has taken 5 wickets in the tournament thus far and scored a whopping 425 runs. Expect him to be a danger with both bat and ball on the type of surface he is used to playing on.










    14:11 (IST)

    The covers are on at the moment and we might have a delayed start. However, there’s no big threat as such. 










    14:00 (IST)

    Shakib al Hasan has led the way with the bat and is currently among the top-five run scorers of the tournament but their bowling has been wayward at times and that has come back to haunt them on occasion. And against an Afghanistan spin attack that managed to stifle India, Bangladesh’s own bowlers will have to step up to make life easier for their batsmen.










    13:52 (IST)

    Skipper Gulbadin Naib will hope they can carry on the momentum against a Bangladesh side that have been in fine form so far in the tournament.










    13:51 (IST)

    After poor performances in their first four matches, Afghanistan showed what they are capable of when they took India to the limit at the same venue on Sunday. Their bowling unit had suffered against England but they delivered a commanding performance against Virat Kohli’s side, ensuring they could only score 224 in the first innings before falling short by just 11 runs.










    13:42 (IST)

    It’s currently raining in Southampton and there is a chance for a passing shower in the afternoon as well. However, we will most probably get enough game time to get a result.










    13:30 (IST)

    Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 2019 World Cup encounter between Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Coming off a stellar performance against India, Afghanistan will aim to get their first win. Meanwhile, Bangladesh are almost out of the contention for the semi-finals as they currently sit on five points after playing six games.

    Coming off a stellar performance against India, Afghanistan will aim to get their first win in the ICC World Cup 2019 when they take on Bangladesh at the Rose Bowl Cricket Stadium in Southampton on Monday (June 24).

    After poor performances in their first four matches, Afghanistan showed what they are capable of when they took India to the limit at the same venue on Sunday.

    Their bowling unit had suffered against England but they delivered a commanding performance against Virat Kohli’s side, ensuring they could only score 224 in the first innings before falling short by just 11 runs.

    Skipper Gulbadin Naib will hope they can carry on the momentum against a Bangladesh side that have been in fine form so far in the tournament.

    Shakib al Hasan has led the way with the bat and is currently among the top-five run scorers of the tournament but their bowling has been wayward at times and that has come back to haunt them on occasion.

    And against an Afghanistan spin attack that managed to stifle India, Bangladesh’s own bowlers will have to step up to make life easier for their batsmen.

    Bangladesh are almost out of the contention for the semi-finals as they currently sit on five points after playing six games.

    However, if they manage to win their remaining games and a few other results go in their favour, they might just sneak into the top four.
