Pakistan to take on South Africa in World Cup clash

Wahab Riaz 'Ridiculous': Controversial rule at centre of Cricket World Cup drama

The "soft signal" has sparked controversy at the Cricket World Cup after South Africa's Imran Tahir claimed a catch that was called not out on the field.

The other four in top-five are spinners - Nathan Lyon (11,340), Moeen Ali (10,198), R Ashwin (10,090) and Ravindra Jadeja (9,289). But umpire Brian Aldridge somehow decided that it was not out! That's the one area I would have changed but it's not in my hands, ' he said.

South Africa also faulted in allowing a not-so-fully fit Dale Steyn to play in IPL.

If it was discussed to rest key players for IPL, why did South Africa not walk the talk?

The Proteas had a chance to knock Australia out of the tournament at the Super Six stage. Sarfraz made it quite clear that he didn't want to say anything to Akhtar as any statement against him will invite further criticism for him from the 43-year-old. You need three or four or five bowlers in the wings waiting, so you can have a bit of a rotation system. "We win our next three games, we'll qualify". But Allan Donald didn't... and was run out. They needed to score one more run than the total on the sheet, but instead, Mark Boucher blocked the last ball from Muttiah Muralitharan before play was halted, and the match was tied, knocking SA out.

Arthur said Pakistan, who stunned England earlier in the tournament, can beat any team if they play to their potential. Glenn McGrath, Shaun Tait and Nathan Bracken ripped through the South African batting line-up, and Australia chased down the 150-run target easily.

This was not the first time du Plessis pointed fingers at the IPL.

Grant Elliott was a SA Under-19 captain, but never kicked on in his senior provincial career at the Lions. That he was pulled out of IPL in the first week of May did not worsen the situation for the young pacer who has disappointed with his performances in the World Cup.

"We've spoken for a long time about being positive and aggressive, taking the game forward, but they have not been able to do that when it mattered most and to see them go into their shell has been surprising". Their only defeat came against India at The Oval. Whether that's New Zealand, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, our remaining games, or England, we showed.

That sums up their tournament, but skipper Faf Du Plessis said: "We left everything out there and that's all I can ask for as a captain, that the guys fought".
