The shaky confidence of Pakistan will be exploited, South Africa’s David Miller said on Wednesday, as they attempt to secure a position in the Twenty20 World Cup semifinals and eliminate their opponents. With a ferocious pace attack and batsmen in form, The Proteas have proven why they were considered dark horses in the run-up to the championship match in Australia. They topped the table with two wins from three games. Including a triumph against India, before later on Wednesday’s Group 2 matchups. The third game for South Africa was canceled.
The Points Table
In contrast, Pakistan, who is now in fifth place, will be eliminated from the World Cup if South Africa defeats them on Thursday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, Pakistan’s highly regarded opening duo, have struggled in three World Cup games. And are under pressure to quickly regain their form.
Statement of David Miller about Pakistan
Miller, a middle-order batsman, said: I think it’s a place to exploit. They have probably not played as well as they would have liked because this game is all about confidence. They are, however, elite athletes, so we anticipate them to show up ready to compete and with their best effort.
Naseem Shah, a bowler for Pakistan, disputed that his team was still brooding after their heartbreaking opening loss to India. Pakistan lost to their arch-rivals on the final ball, then suffered a shocking loss to Zimbabwe before thumping the Netherlands.
Fast bowler Naseem was asked by reporters whether Pakistan had not mentally recovered from the loss to India. He responded, No, I don’t think so because everyone is professional and everyone knows about oneself.
We lost to India, but I don’t believe anyone is reflecting on that match because, as a professional. You can’t go back to the past, especially when you lose. In a tight five-wicket victory over India, Miller scored an unbeaten half-century, highlighting South Africa’s title credentials and resiliency.
We must be coming up with lots of strategies to triumph, he thought. We’ve been doing it for a while now. We’ve encountered challenging circumstances in the past year, I’d say, and we’ve overcome them.
He continued, I believe that the squad has maintained consistency throughout time. Because guys have been able to sort of discover their positions and if one guy isn’t doing well, another guy picks up the slack.
