IN Group-E South Africa and England Won there matches

South Africa vs new Zealand

Pakistan have been flattened by a great innings from Pietersen. He was authoritative from the start, hitting the ball very hard, collecting boundaries from bad balls and working the good ones away for singles and twos. Pakistan were a disappointment in the field after scrapping their way to 147, dropping easy chances and missing what should have been a simple run out in the penultimate over. They are not down and out yet, but they will need to search for some inspiration in their remaining games.

Lots of you have questioned Afridi’s tactics in this game, particularly his rotation of the bowlers in the middle overs. Indeed, what Pakistan really needed was for their spinners to get some rhythm with a good spell in the middle, as England’s did, to keep the runs down as England chased a modest target. It is also unclear what Fawad Alam’s role in the side is, as he bats at No. 8 and doesn’t bowl.

“You can’t afford to miss opportunities,” says Afridi, “had we taken the opportunities the match could have turned out differently.”

and on other match Solid all-round performance from South Africa. There were rarely behind in the game once the top-order gave them a good start. Albie, of course, provided the fireworks that propelled them to a big total, which proved 13 too many for New Zealand. For NZ, none of the top five had strike-rates above 120, which meant the lower order had too much to do. South Africa will be pleased with their bowling unit as well: the decision to bring in Botha paid off and Morne continues to show he can be good at Twenty20s.
