Over 27 Pakistan 119/3/No

So that's it from us for this game. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. The Group B of the ICC Champions Trophy is now wide and open. It could get very interesting if Sri Lanka manage to beat India tomorrow. The game starts at 1030 local time (0930 GMT). Do join us for the game. Until then, it is goodbye and take care!
Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed says it's a very important win today. Adds they were good in all departments. He also adds the spinners were very good today. He appreciates Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan and Mohammad Hafeez. He admits they did not field well in the last game but were better in this game. He says they had a morale boosting meeting. He feels the team did very well in all departments today.
Man of the Match, Hasan Ali says he is happy with his performance and adds that it was a team effort. He admits he dropped the catch of Yuvraj Singh in the last game and he had to perform well today. He adds it was his first ICC event so he feels very happy winning the Man of the Match award.
Chasing 220, Pakistan began superbly with the debutante Fakhar Zaman hitting a breezy 23-ball 31. They did lose both their openers in an over to Morne Morkel but it was the pair of Mohammad Hafeez and Babar Azam who steadied them with a 52-run stand. Hafeez fell but Shoaib Malik came in and ensured that the Asian side was ahead of the par score with the rain falling. That eventually was it for them. Morne Morkel was the pick of the bowlers for South Africa taking the three wickets to fall. Besides that, there wasn't much to talk about. Stay tuned for the details from the presentation.
The rain hasn't relented and Pakistan have broken their six match losing streak in the tournament. First win for them since 2009 ICC Champions Trophy as they WIN BY 19 RUNS (By DLS Method). They would be delighted with the win whereas South Africa will be very disappointed with their performance today. They didn't bat well at all and never recovered after being 6 for 118. David Miller got them to 219 but it was never going to be enough.
2105 local time update - The rain hasn't stopped and the covers are still around. No great news but one news is that we are starting to lose overs now. Let's hope it clears out and we get a game...
1942 local time update - Oh dear! The umpires come together for a chat about the rain. They find it heavy and want the players to go off the field. The par score at the moment is 100 and Pakistan are 19 runs ahead. Let's hope the rain clears out soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
