LONDON (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff (COAS) congratulated the Pakistani team on their victory against South Africa in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match on Sunday.

The army chief who arrived at the Lord’s cricket ground and watched the complete match congratulated team Pakistan while leaving the stadium.

General Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived at the Lord’s cricket ground on Sunday to watch the Pakistan’s match against South Africa in their key World Cup match.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Inter-Service Public Relation (ISPR) Director General Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor are also accompanied the army chief to the cricket stadium.

The army chief and the ISPR DG mixed up with the Pakistani fans in the stadium; however, the fans expressed their happiness with raising slogans as ‘Pakistan Zindabad’.

A combined batting performance studded by Haris Sohail’s 59-ball 89 was backed up by the bowlers as Pakistan kept their hopes of progression at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 alive with a 49-run win against South Africa.

Chasing Pakistan’s 308/7, South Africa came undone against Mohammad Amir (2/49) and Shadab Khan (3/50) to remain with just one win from seven games so far.

The World Cup caravan reached the Home of Cricket on Sunday, 23 June, and Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman treated the packed crowd at Lord’s to a series of glorious drives. The team fifty came in quick time, taking just 44 balls and including 38 runs in boundaries. Lungi Ngidi came in for particular punishment, Fakhar dispatching him for a big six over midwicket.

Chris Morris created a chance with Fakhar on 28, Imran Tahir diving forward to take a catch. With replays inconclusive, the umpires gave the batsman the benefit of the doubt. Tahir took matters into his own hands, however. In his first over, Fakhar’s attempted scoop ballooned up to the waiting Hashim Amla fielding at first slip; then, the veteran leapt to his right to complete a good low catch of Imam as both set batsmen were sent packing.

Pakistan are currently ranked number seven on the World Cup points table, above from South Africa, Afghanistan and West Indies with two win (against England and South Africa), three losses (against West Indies, Australia and India), and one washout against Sri Lanka.
